Just moved to Outer Sunset / Ocean Beach!

Postby oskar » Sun Sep 16, 2012 8:57 am

Hey!

Pretty stoked to say I just moved into a place at 47th and Judah, right next to the ocean. Will be commuting downtown for uni, then hopefully getting on the water lots in the afternoon, either kiting or surfing.

Any other kiters living nearby? It is always good to have somebody to go out there with. I've been kiting for 7-8 years so I won't be holding you back.

Been reading a bit about beach etiquette at OB on the forum, where to launch etc., anything else I should know before going out there?

Looking forward to meeting other kiters in the area, and potentially carpooling to other spots when they're better than OB.

Cheers,
Karl

I live 10 min away from OB. That's probably one of my favorite spot around.
On shore wind in the waves is kinda tricky but once you get it it's a lot of fun.
Best time is the spring. But winter can be hardcore. Big wind, huge swell.
We lost a fellow rider a couple years ago there. Fun spot but tough.
