I personally think that it is safer with a foil.
I didn’t specify since I didn’t think people would look. But the third spot I was referring to was Oso Bay in Corpus, not the levee. I usually go down there for the weekends and camp if it’s looking good for the weekend. I like riding at the levee for sourthern winds and sometimes northern winds!TheJoe wrote: ↑Tue Mar 30, 2021 12:46 amNo you are wrong Tim there are a ton of other places you can go. Your just following the crowd and that crowd has grown from following myself and the guys at the shop. Galveston bay is huge and there are other spots you can go. The best place for you is going to be the dike about 4 miles down on the beach side. It is choppy but plenty deep. Wind will be onshore so it will be easy to get back on land. Stay away from getting to the end of the dike the current gets very strong the closer you get to the end of it. All so learn to read the tides for the bay. That has a huge impact on how much water will be under you. I've kited the Levee where you had to walk out a hundred yards to enough water to just ride out where it is deep enough to jump. Other times I have not gone there just because the water was going over the rocks at the entrance and you can not see where to step.
When you get more comfortable then come on back to leeward side of the dike.
