I want to ride at Sherman Island tomorrow and want to know if anyone is interested in joining me? I am a beginner but I'm improving weekly. I live in Emeryville and can drive.

My number is 415-596-3088.

Thanks,

MO

As long as there's wind, I have no problem getting up and riding, but I'm still learning how to get upwind. Any interest in Sherman this Sat?

My suggestion is to call Nat and arrange a downwinder. Have you been to sherman before?

Hey!
Im a UC Berkeley exchangestudent looking for people to kite with as i dont know the area. I`ve understood Emery point is the spot for launching closest to here? Is anyone gonna go kiting this weekend or know how the forecast is for the weekend?

It is but it is also very complicated to launch from and you should definitely not go by yourself. If nobody is kiting there, you should not do it.

Do not kite here unless you have solid upwind skills and can charge upwind right away in onshore wind at a small launch surrounded by rocks!

You guys may want to consider the fact that in all likelihood there will be no kiteable wind in the area.
