Everyone says that it is possible to kite everyday. Never heard of a spot like this anywhere in the world, so I am curious. What do people wear if they go kiting: shorty or just board shorts. Is there a website which I can check for this spot, please tell me. Do you know what the water temperature is and the air temperature. I see that this spot is situated quite high in the mountains (bit cold or so?).

I go to Cali all the time (Wife is from there), and recently I heard of this lake, so ... I missed it this summer and we're going in December, but next summer ('13) I'm freaking going, is cheap, and it blows like crazy down there. ... /index.htm
