Join me at the kite beach. This session is for all people interested in kiteboarding who have regardless of your level or experience. Most people will be riding though. If you are interested in the sport I suggest you contact me prior to the event, and Ill try to be available to answer questions, etc.  Let's have some fun!

 

These events where setup previously and will remain, unless I get a request to change them.

Events will be canceled if no one RSVP's. So don't expect to show up and find us there, as we will assume no plans to come if they don't RSVP. You can still show up, just don't be disappoint if you find there's no one there to meetup with you.

    Jack, I have been thinking of going back into kiteboarding for quite a while now. Did not go out for at least a year and I was an advanced beginner / intermediate back then. Is there anything you would want people to know about 3rd Ave before they go out there? In the Bay Area I just know Crissy Fields from own experience.

      Hi Axel, Well the biggest thing there is there are two launches, and upper and lower launch relative to the wind. Beginners, or those getting back into the support should start from the upper launch above the golf course. They should be able to stay up wind also, or be prepared to come into the lower launch before getting to far down wind, as there the coast line below that is cover with rip warp aka rocks to protect from erosion. The lower launch is below the golf course and the high nets there create a wind shadow, which significantly cuts down the wind. If you are not used to this you will likely drop your kite in the water(unless its a super low tied then , it will be in the mud. If you have the skills and keep your kite high in the wind window, while try to create power strokes you will make it in without dropping your kite. I can explain in more detail in person.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
