The North end of Ocean Beach is popular kitesurfing spot for several reasons. The North end is an extremely long and broad beach. This allows for plenty of room to lay down lines and set up gear without fear hitting any beach goers. The beach can be very crowded on sunny, warm days, but when the wind picks up the crowds typically disperse.
The water is extremely cold and there are strong currents and riptides. There is plenty of room on the water and once riding, it is easy to navigate while there are other boarders out.
Ocean Beach is a surf beach and there is usually some swell in the water. A strong combination of wind and swell makes this not an ideal spot for beginners.
This is not a beginner spot for any boardsport. Lesson are highly recommended for anyone new to kiteboarding.
There is lots of parking and can be easily reached by public transportation.
