According to kitebeaches, there is a launch at Terrapin park.. I only went there once and there weren't any locals around, so I didn't ride. It looks like a tricky launch, especially for a newbie.

Here's a 7 minute video of people riding last month at Terrapin Park.

If memory serves, toddjb123 Image is from that area.


Hope that helps
