Figured I would throw this out there in case there are any other beginners out there with the same idea. Going to duck out of work around 3pm tomorrow and head over to Alameda. I normally do the Zipcar thing and will probably head out realistically at 3:30. Just wanted to offer a ride to any other kiter out there interested in joining. Probably will try to make it back before 8:00PM. I work in the in downtown SF right in the financial district so the closer to that for the departure at least the better.
Feel free to pm me or contact me at the below
