There is a kiter out at Mavs on the Surfline cam if you're interested.

Red kite with dark accents. Don't see any support for him.

Has anyone dropped in at Shipsterns or The Wedge yet on WS gear? Or Mavs?

Wasn't there an article some time back, maybe in Windsurfer mag, about a windsurfing attempt at Mavericks by a notable guy ...

Heat 1 for the men was held today and then they cancelled due to too much size.

Basically you could see the limit of paddle surfing right in front of you. One completed ride for the men, and the ...

To the point on used gear. I get a new board and a quiver of sails each year.
Its certainly not cost effective but its fun. I sell it all at the end of the season that ends after my Nov. trip to Sout ...

7 things to know before you camp at the new campsites at Candlstick. Possibly some things were left out. However, flush toilets are mentioned. Isn't this positive?
