 Access

English (Translate this text in English): San Francisco Bay, Golden Gate Promenade. Access here is simple, but delicate - note that the area is used by a lot of non-surfers, so windsurfers and kiteboarders should always give careful consideration to their launch - and give priority to other users: one accident could shut down access for us all

English (Translate this text in English): Crissy Field is a world-class sailing, windsurfing, and kitesurfing site, but is definitely not for beginner kitesurfers. The extremely unpredictable gusty winds (5 mph to 45 mph) makes kiting here very challenging and is best left to the experts. Crissy can be a very dangerous place to launch. The wind is side-offshore and the currents are extremely strong.

 Additional Information

English (Translate this text in English): You must excel in up wind and jibing ability, be knowledgeable of ebb, flood, counter currents, and excellent swimming ability is a prerequisite for kiting here. Also, no matter how warm the day, the cold water and strong currents demand a full wetsuit all year long. Windsurf traffic, cargo tanker traffic and general boat traffic can be quite heavy - so keep your eyes open.
