Yes, it is deep enough to foil at Silver Sands. You just need to body drag out past the shore break.
The wind is usually under 20 kts there, so some great foiling days ahead.
I will be foiling there the first two weeks of January.

No seaweed at Silver Sands
Winds could be side/off at Ostins.
I think it is better to be around other kiters. On a light day 10 - 12 kts you will have Silver Sands to yourself while the other kiters watch you from the beach or are SUPing.
