Downwinders at Ocean Beach

Postby cakemonsterkite » Sun Oct 19, 2008 8:57 pm

Where are the best places to get in and out?

What wind/swell directions are best?

Thank You.

Ocean beach is usually onshore and downwinders don't work that well but i have done several in the past from Sloat Ave to the Cliff house on a south wind. It was light wind which made negotiating the head high choppy swell tough.
was fun but becareful as Ocean Beach can be dangerous... esp in the winter
