Guess this spot

Postby jowall » Mon May 30, 2011 9:49 pm

I got a session on Saturday 5/29 at a place I had never kited before. Can anyone guess this bay area spot??? If not, I'll give more clues/pictures.

So was it Saturday the 28th or Sunday the 29th?

I'm guessing Sunday, Lake Berryessa. It was blowing like stink when I left for the coast.

Saturday I think it was cloudy and cold everywhere in Norcal, right?

Yup.. pretty much. Went out at the Racetrack on big kites and then a squall came through and drenched us with calm wet wind. Nobody saw it coming!! Then got blown off the beach with nuclear winds at OB on Sunday.... Thank goodness I was coming off a sweet Friday session at the Racetrack! It gets so steady there! YeaHaw!

Napa River looks about right..... for pic # 2. Lake Mendocino for #1? Not really a bay area site but I've heard it can be GOOD!

I like this game, there's 4-5 20 minutes from alameda, "the best spots, no one kites!"
