Alameda has Waves!

Can I get a launch from you Charlie? Looks like good 10 meter weather.

Dang Yuri I was at the launch at 9:30 and no one was there... My window of work excuse opportunity is dwindling... are you going to ride?

It was onshore quite a bit.
If the tide drops the waves will be ridable with a long board!

yellow cabrinhas can be very entertaining :)


Oh yeah, I forgot about the association of yellow Cabrinhas == beginner kiters and tons of people screwing up silly on yellow Cabrinhas in Alameda. :mrgreen: Funny, but now I feel bad for getting this thing started again, especially for good kiters riding yellow Cabrinhas in Alameda.

Anyway, I'll be at the shack launch early Saturday morning. Looks like we will have a small break (conditions similar to Thursday morning) before the Saturday storm shows up in the afternoon. Maybe a morning 10-12 meter session. Anybody else planning to ride tomorrow? If no one is there, maybe I can bug Max further downwind and he can be my land support.

Tomorrow (Saturday 1/5) may be a better day to watch waves at Maverick's with the falling tide in the afternoon...

Angel Island got up to 87 and Los Gatos Hills a freakin 105mph !!

that calls for kites measured in centimeters... not meters

It was nice to meet you at the launch in Alameda this morning Bob.
Now is a good time to drive down to Half Moon Bay and watch Mavs go off after a morning wet kiting session.
Looks like waves are breaking at 20 to 30 feet.
The lightning looks scary though.
