How many decent kiting days do you get from Nov -> Feb and what are the primary spots for that season?

2012/2013: ~12 days. Mostly coast NW and South winds; OB, Dillon and a session or two on South winds at Alameda.

Why?

yea, once or twice a week sounds about right. Also, Marina Bay can be very fun on a south wind. No one else seems to join me there in the winter.

We are too busy doing downwinder at OB or riding HMB harbor or alameda on a south.
That's why. :mrgreen:
Now that you mention it, I can't believe I didn't make it at least once to marina bay this winter. :shock:

38 days this winter, that's impressive. Are we talking any raceboard days or all surf or TT?

Thanks for the info.
