Moving to San Fran!

Postby Bryce FLK » Thu Feb 13, 2014 10:05 pm

Guys it's been real. This forum and the people on it are the only thing that's kept me sane living in Chi for the last two years. I really hope the kiters in San Fran are as cool as you guys. I'll be living 25-30 minutes from Sheman Island so feel free to give me a ring when your in town!

Bryce,

you are moving in a very good place, you won't be able to do as many downwinders as here but early spring to late summer you have good wind almost every day in the bay.

The kiting scene is very active and the racing is huge, every other Thursday in the summer you have one between Crissy Field, Alcatraz and the Golden Gate and it's open: you don't need to be a pro to race. As long as you follow the rules you are welcome to participate and watch those guys a little closer.

A friend of mine lives just outside SF, he is a kiter and a great guy, let me know when you get there and I'll hook you guys up.

Good luck!

Only bigger and better things for you bud. Glad you could make the crib run before you left. Almost a right of passage now. Enjoy San-Fran and all I can say is now I "know a guy" in San Fran so I can go kite haha

Great to see you often at Montrose over the last couple years Bryce. You will be very wind spoiled in the Bay Area, it is awesome out there. You have everything from cold ocean waves to board shorts weather and fresh water at Sherman Island. Best of luck.

B,

sorry to see you go, our loss is sf's gain. I am sure that you will have tons of fun. If you want I can hook you up with a local guy who knows the sf ropes. he is an instructor down there. did I miss the going away party? are you going to the film showing on the 26th? hope to see you there.

Thanks for the goodbyes, thanks to those friends I've met, and special thanks to those who have worked to make Chicago a better kite community
