Initially planned for Pistol River but unexpectedly no wind so drove farther south to SF. Day 1 Stinson Beach and Day 2 Golden Gate Bridge. Here until Saturday and then to Pistol River on Sunday for a week of NW wind

Hey aj. You should check out Waddell Creek. There's wind there this weekend. Just a bit further south from SF Bay. Super kite friendly and easy spot to sail.

Day 3. Friday @ Golden Gate. 25-30knots nw. Tools for the job. 8m kite and 4.5m/83L

Great windsurfing and kitesurfing crowd. Free parking in SAN Francisco wow. And parked overnight at Crissley field right by the beach without getting hassled

Day 4 Saturday bluebird smog free skies westerly 25 to 30 knots 8m kite. Beginning to like Crissey field. Beach is crowded with all sorts of people—kiter windsurfer cyclists runners picnic lovers dog walkers. Crissy field is awesome for cheap vacationists like me...And free wifi. No need to drive around in crazy freeways

Day 5 Sunday. Golden Gate Bridge 25 to 35 knots westerly with headhigh swells. Cloudy at first which was a turn off for me windsurfing as it was quite holey so ended up kiting with 8m. So far 7 windy days out of 7 days including 2 days stay at the Gorge. I shied away from ocean beach as some folks are telling me that wind is too onshore and breaking waves are a mess and I’d rather stay where mostly everyone goes for safety.
