Folsom is the spot!
North winds = Folsom Point
South winds = Granite Bay

The best Sacramento Valley kiting is at the Thermalito Afterbay near Oroville, 75 mins north of Sac. It was really on the past two days, with north winds mid-20's and gusts to 35 this afternoon. Tomorrow is questionable, but then again today was supposed to be lighter than yesterday and it was better.
A handful of locals were really enjoying the onset of the north wind season which lasts from October through May.
