The season is barreling down quick.

If you have some time off, enjoy camping, and don't mind a drive....

Dennis,
Come kite with us at TP. It has been and is expected to be good all this week.
Also see the post by me on the last page for your safety info sheet. Print it out and read it before every session. oo** Be safe and have fun.

Thanks everyone for the replies and the welcomes! :)

Yes I am definitely not ready yet to go to 3rd ave or most other beaches. That's why I liked to stay at Alameda. There are very few hazards and there is a lot of space to practice in shallow water.

I think what I need mostly now is just time to practice. Get more experience flying the kite, bodydragging, relaunching, self-rescue and in the end water starts. I have learned the basic techniques to do this in the lessons.. now I need to deliberately practice the application.

I will give the beach at KGB a try and maybe check out the school at sherman island for a lesson there!

Royce, glad to see you are here on this Forum! Where is TP?

TP is easy to get to but easy to miss if you are not paying attention to the directions.

There are directions somewhere on this forum...
