Re: [BSA] Kiting in SoCal?
San Diego is notorious light wind, very big kite place if you can kite at all...unless a front comes through. I'm down in SD right now on personal matters. Brought my kite gear just in case, but really don't expect much and will be surprised if I use it. However, the day the big low swept through Boise dropping temps, the winds everywhere in west kicked up, including SD which was 14m the day I flew in.
Places in SD are across the Coronado Bridge south of Hotel Del between the two big condo towers. Also farther south at right by the entrance to the State beach park. In LA, Belmont Shores (Long Beach) and just south of there Seal Beach are best for southern side of LA. Huntington Beach can be good too. North near Malibu. For kiting anywhere between Ventura and south LA, contact my buddy Paul Dutch: 805-390-8500. He'll get you educated.

Anyone "kited" in SoCal?
Penny and I are headed to southern California to "beach camp" at San Elijo
(near San Diego). After a week in SoCal, we'll head north to Central
California...San Luis Obispo, then north on Hwy 1 to ???
We're not taking windsurfing gear because the wind tends to be light, and
the gear heavy. But, we'll have our kites.
Anyone ever do any kiting or know where to go down there? Thanks, Jack

bit of a strugle. Played in the swells until I got caught in side.
Once I was getting washed in I lost power and the kite dropped into
the surf. I washed in with the kite and called it good, and headed
back to camp ready for a beer!
The guy with 16m did much better but it worked and was lots fun
playing in the surf. not a bad start when not expecting much
Today light wind, 68 air, 68 water. Surfing
