Post general kiteboarding discussion topics here!
can anybody tell me where the launch is for the kites I see in the Hercules area? I work in Rodeo and can't make it to Sherman in time to get an after worrk session. Any tips or suggestions for that launch would be appreciated. Are there sand bags there for self launch? Or is there a sandy beach?
I had talked to a couple different people that said there is a place to launch in Hercules and in Pinole but i have not been, but they said go on a ebb tide.
Riding used and closeout kites and boards from e-bay,craigslist,ikitesurf, and local surf shops.
There is a small walking path just north of the City of Hercules Wastewater Treatmant Plant. On Low tide, there is a rocky, sandy Muddy area where you can possibly launch. Haven't kited there, but scoped it out with Maui Mike...
San Pablo would be a great place to kite. Launches need some further scoping out!

The answer is in your post! It's Point Pinole... good on North winds too...
Thanks for the help guys. I was in the area last summer at a wedding party and saw kites in the air but didn't go down to see where they were launching. On google earth it looked to me that they were east of the waste water treatment plant. I will check it out. I know that the weather radio often shows that as being the windiest part of the bay.
