earlier today they said gusts up to 50-60 MPH over the bridges. that kinda wind and rain, no thanks, the bay bridge is a big enuf battle as it is, don't need to see if i can survive being tossed into the bay
Yup, we do it on the Bay. Yesterday Crown Beach in Alameda was optimal, today it's Crissy Field. Super-fun sport! If you're interested you could take lessons from City Front Sailboards or Berkeley Boardsports. Trust me, it's worth it. The power in that bar (when you send the kite and jump) is phenomenal. More power than a Ducati Monster!
Sorry Tigre, but the answer is YES. When you sling that kite as hard as you can it creates so much apparent wind that even my fat azz gets 20+ feet of air. More adrenaline than anyone has a right to pump. No oncoming 18-wheelers either. Try that with a fuzzy tail on your bike!
