Kitesurfing San Diego

Postby zamo27 » Tue Aug 30, 2011 1:18 pm

hi all im planning a 10 day trip to san diego with my family. I would like some information about accommodation where i can stay and kite surf every morning from the apartment or hotel. I am also looking for a place that is child friendly and full of family stuff for the rest of the pack, while im on the water.

thanks for the info

Your best bet is to drive up to Long Beach/Sunset area (2hr drive North w/o traffic)

"w/o traffic" means only between 2 and 4am. otherwise bring an audio-book... a long one. :lol:

Tourmaline would be the best place for what you are asking for, even though the winds are not that great right now (make sure you know how to ride waves, you don't want to screw up the access), below is a link you can check out also you may want to look at the bay side for flat water riding. There is a lot to do for your family in San Diego, there is the zoo, Seaworld, wild animal park, Lego land, beaches, Maritime museum, etc..

Hey, I'll probably be there for a long weekend in 2 weeks, any suggestions of where to go? Also, anywhere where I could rent a surfboard (preferably with straps) would be helpful.

I'll have a car and can stay wherever that's driveable within reason from San Diego.

During the winter, usually just storm winds if you can get it before the rain. Many of the local kiters head to San Felipe, Baja during this time to get their fix(4 hour drive). No waves in San Felipe though, just really good flat water conditions when the tide fills in. Probably better to plan the trip in the Spring if you can and bring your biggest kite. Lastly, I can't think of any place that rents directionals. But, there are so many used surfboards on craigslist if you are in a pinch.

If you are lucky you may catch Santa Ana winds.
