Re: San Francisco Bay Area in October

Yeah if you're just looking to cruise around, any spot in the Bay will do. But the chance of getting a good day in October is low :/

Re: San Francisco Bay Area in October

October is the end of the season and you can't really count on much/ it's a crap shoot/ could be crazy storm wind.

No one in the Bay Area will rent a kite, but Boardsports will demo boards at Alameda, and Coyote Point.

What sort of riding are you looking to do?

Re: First strapless ride on a surfboard - Diagnosis?

Almost every rider I have seen that switches from tt to surfboard rides with far too much weight on the back foot. ...As a beginner, as you improve this will all change. This is my best guess as well. Because without pictures or video of you riding we can only guess. Did you instantly go upwind on ...

Re: Best place to learn to foil on East Coast

the main reason I have not progressed is my fear of sharks.
The only more worse hobby for you would be surfing

No shops in your country carry it? You don't need to use it that often so it last a long time.

Re: Best spot in the SF Bay Area?

Depends what you want to ride. Closest to SFO is 3rd Ave and has been pretty reliable this season. That offers you mostly "flat water" and inland riding.

Re: Anyone tried the FixnZip zipper repairs for kite bags??

For that price you might just be able to go to a luggage repair place and have them put on a new one. Cool product though

Re: Begginer strapless surf board - North nugget, airush mini monster, firewire evo or suggestions

Evo or Nugget Nugget edges out the Evo just a bit for really low wind riding, but the Evo will progress with you better if you do go into any sort of wave (even small stuff) or strapless tricks. AND/OR Just buy a cheap (sub $125) shortboard off of craiglist (or the equivelent) and ride it into the g...
