Lost Ozone bar at Sherman on 6/16

Father's day! Bummer. {}[]

I left my bar behind and just realized today that I don't have it in my bin. Ozone bar, likely left near the kite pump up area and entry path to the beach. Fingers crossed that someone picked that wants to return it!

Water snake at sherman island

I was kiting this morning at Sherman Island and fell off my board. While I was busy getting going again, I noticed a long think black and striped snake next to my shoulder. I first thought it was the webbing strap to unzip my wetsuit, then realized it was a snake swimming in the water. I'm not sure ...

Dead shark floating at Sherman on Sunday

Did anyone get a look at the dead shark that was floating past the shipwreck at Sherman on Sunday? It was around 2:30 PM and was about 200 yards NW of the shipwreck. I honestly can't remember what the tide was doing [-X The shark was floating belly up and looked like a whitecap as I approached it. T...

Re: Sherman Island Morning Sessions before work?

Got there as the wind was dying. Not a very big window to sit around and hope the wind comes up. Headed back around 7:15. Checked the wind as I was driving back only to see it coming up... Figures.

Re: Sherman Island Morning Sessions before work?

The traffic is notoriously slow from Antioch to Pittsburgh. Stop and go until the hwy widens to 4 lanes. After that, it flows nicely. It usually takes 60-75 mins to get from Sherman to SF at aroud 9AM.

Sherman Island Morning Sessions before work?

I frequently go to Sherman before work and want to see if anyone is interested in ridesharing or being a safety buddy. I live in Oakland and work in SF. I am often the only one out at 6:30 - 8:00 am and it's a little sketchy sometimes. I suspect there will be more guys out as summer approaches, but ...

Slingshot User Manual setting the bar

I have to say that the user manual for the slingshot link really kicks a$$. I applaud them for taking the time to create something really comprehensive and detailed. There is a ton of good information in there. Most manuals are a clear afterthought. The pictures are shitty, the directions are lame, ...
