Hey my name is Anthony and I just started kiting this season. Got up on my board for a few seconds and that's about it during the water lesson. Looking to go again this weekend most likely at alameda, if there is any wind that is. I want to pratice body dragging a bit then take a crack at the board again. Would be nice to find someone just started off also but if you don't mind a newbie being around that is cool (something to make you laugh).
I live in San Francisco. I have access to a car about 50% of the time so I can drive once and while but I have no problem paying for gas or lunch.

Will be groing through lessons till I feel secure enough to head out but since I am learning at SI and you at Alameda maybe we can share info about the spots.

I just started also this season.
I've gone I think 6 times this season for 1-2hours each time.
I am going upwind fairly well, and am starting to jump on command. (I'm a pretty fast learner and it helps to have 7years of wake behind you.)
I have a fair ammout of knowledge about Alameda since other than Rio that's the only place I've gone. I know how nice it is to have someone around who knows somewhat about the spot so I'd love to help in Alameda, I think I'll be in the city tomarow so I might be able to help launch If it is on tomarow. In my personal experience I doubt it will be good tomarow, or sunday (theres a chance). So I think I'll be in HMB on Sunday. It all depends. I'd like to meet someone who is local at ocean beach, I always was curious about OB.
If you have any questions feel free to send me a message.
Nice! I finally found this place, took awhile. New to kiteboarding as well and would love to hang out with some newbies, YAY! Don't have a car but can totally sport gas, toll, lunch, band-aids. I'm almost on the board...does that count?
Days off are Mon&Tues. If anyone is down on those days, i'm totally avail!
Hey all, I just got back to the states from traveling over seas. And yup, took some lessons, got me a kite, and am ready to ride. I consider myself at the beginner stages, I can go upwind without too much drama. Also looking for others to go out with. I have a wheels (there's 4 of them!), and will be ready to roll as soon as the wind picks up!
Okay snowboarding is dead to me now. At least till next season. I am available on the weekends to go. Also I have access to wheels sometimes assuming I can steal it first. Anyways I am still working getting on the board. I have a couple of kites (10,11 & 13). I think it would be great to learn with someone else. I live in the mission and probably still be going to Alameda. If anyone interested let me know.
OB really is not really a place to learn...When your kite hits the water the ocean will claim it quickly... Alameda is a better call for getting the hang of the sport... Have Fun and Be Safe!
I took lessons last summer - but I am a slow learner still trying to stay up on the board. Anyrate - I have been to Alameda - last Spring.
I live in SF, but right now do not have a car:( However, I am so desperate, that I am going to attempt public transportation...I just have to get out in the water! It has been six months...I am determined to get up on the board!!!!
(If not, then I will be a professional body dragger >
Soooo, if anyone is willing to give me a lift when they are going to Alameda - I would love it! I can pay for gas, toll, etc..(of course what is etc..?)
