Overview

Works on a strong NW with a big kite. 520 must read 18 or higher for it to be rideable. You can fly your kite when 520 reads 12 N, so maybe a race board would work. Immediately after launch ride starboard to get better winds. Very advanced launch site with lots of trees and people downwind. Shallow water for 100 ft out = good for un-hooked. Must self-land and wrap up in water to come in. Don’t ride here unless you are extremely confident in you self-launching and light wind skills. If you end up downwind of the launch here there’s no return (except for trespassing on a multi-million dollar property).

It is your responsability to check whether kitesurfing is allowed at the spot; you might need a 'special permit' or membership from a local kite organization, etc. Local rules can change. Respect others - kiters or not; kite safely and enjoy the wind!
