Road Trip from San Francisco to San Diego

Postby fix78 » Fri Apr 01, 2011 11:35 am

Hi Everyone,

I am planning a trip from San Francisco to San Diego and would like to know the different spots where I could kite with others along the way.
- I know people kite in San Francisco
- I have seen video of people kiting in Pismo Beach
- I have a friend who had seen kiters south or Irivine, CA

Anywhere else?
Thanks for your help!

Santa Cruz, Monterey, Pismo, Arroyo, Jalama, Santa Barbara, Ventura, Leo Carillo, Malibu, etc.

Farther south = lighter wind, annoying lifeguards, beach restrictions.

Short answer: Waddell and Pismo

Jalama.....brings back memories- tried to surf that place as a 16 year old back in the 70´s- There was 3 break zones- the one furthest out must have been 1km offshore with 25 foot faces. Up on the cliff the swells coming in looked like they went to the horizon.
We waited 3 days until we finally ventured out. Scared the shit out of me..lucky i made it back to shore.

It must me an epic kite spot in the right conditions.

Jalama is awesome if the wind is blowing. Cool camp ground and decent burgers in the little store. Definitely worth a stop.

Pismo is also great. Go to Grover beach just south of Pismo.
