Post general kiteboarding discussion topics here!
I've surfed OB for 32 years. Lived on the Great Hwy @ Noriega St for 12. Windsurfed there for 15+, Kited there for 4. Doesn't that make me THE local? Grin.
Are we *really* gonna talk about localism at a spot within the city limits of a major metropolitan area like San Francisco? Please.
Wed and Thurs were the most crowded I've EVER seen it. I counted 25+ kites up at Kelly's alone. But good news: it's only crowded in ONE place. There's 3 miles of beach at OB folks... we *can* spread out a bit...
My humble suggestion was in obvious jest - but it's evident the point was noted
Having not grown up on the left coast I at times forget the skin's a little thinner out here and have to mind that the whole bit isn't too cheeky for some
Saturday if you see 2 kites going up at the Cliff House and then heading out for a downwinder to Sloat, coming back & repeating... Throw us a shaka as we go by
Much love, have fun, be safe & see ya out there this weekend
You got a point.
I guess "bad attitude on the water" is a better description than "localism" when it comes to OB.

Gosh, even Mike Godsey is talking about OB! iKiteSurf never forecasts there!
"Coast: Waddell ramps up early to faint low 20s. Stinson & Ocean Beach mid teens, Bodega mid teens. Natural Bridges mid teens. Fading SOUTHERLY swell 2 ft. @ 14 seconds. "
"A ship is safe in harbor, but that's not what ships are built for"
Yes that's a first. I figured he was the local! Take it down Godsey, OBs full of KOOKS now... someone had to say it And fwiw OB was Nasty on Thursday!
Anyone hit Stinson?

Dude, that's nothing. I was getting tubed before I was born: My X chromosomes were getting barreled in Fallopia , while my Y chromosomes were doing a mighty paddle to join 'em.
After a 9 month hold-down, during which I didn't take a single breath (the secret is to relax in the fetal position), I stormed out the birth canal in a invertered strapless forward roll. Mind you I was wearing an umbilical-cord leash as you can't risk that placenta getting away from you.
After a natural underwater birth, my folks put some booties and a hood on me and after 42 years I'm still charging salt water in any way I can.
