jjm's post really nails it - as you're learning March/April in Alameda will be a great starting point.. Then with 1-2 seasons under your belt, the right equipment, dedication and level of desperation you'll learn to score sessions here and there all year round XZSD

Yeah, just don't tell Thor29 you're traveling... ;^)

(wow, was that flamebait or what?!)

Winter is best for surfing or SUPing. The wind has been extremely rare in Alameda this winter and died pretty quickly on those rare occasions. Just be patient and plan to book all your weekends for kiting this spring/summer and leave work early during the week! Use the down time to socialize the upcoming season with your GF/friends cause they wont see you much then...unless they kite!

we may have 1% of the forum being 1%ters. The entry ticket is $350,000 per year so it's quite expensive, even for kitesurfers...

This has also been the most epic biking winter in the last few years that I've lived here. Incredible December / January

Indeed. Due to the lack of storms I am now considering a full suspension rig. Its insane how much nice bikes cost these days compared to when I got into mtbing (2000).
