I totally disagree. The launch on a South wind is EXTREMELY sketchy. I get my kite and GTF in the water. I do all my adjustments in the water. Too many times my kite just suddenly Hindenburged because of the wind shadow created by the island and then caught the wind again and I launch into the air/grass/1" water. Mike urban has broken his arm on that wall and he's a million times safer then me.
On a West wind you are directly facing that concrete wall, then a parking lot and 100ft later an open road. Again, all in 1" to 2" water when you first start.
I like Wolf and all, but there is no way I agree it's ok for a beginner. I've seen kites in trees and almost seen people really get hurt (including me). If you can ride upwind I think it's a good spot, but not someone just getting started.
Not trying to debate, we can talk in person about it, but I'd hope you agree it's WAY less then ideal for a beginner and on a West wind you should steer new guys to Miller/MC/ST Joe
