Cabrillo General Info

SCKA DOES NOT recommend kiting @ Cabrillo 

Cabrillo winds are EXTREMELY GUSTY. There are big, jagged rocks directly downwind of the launching/landing  & riding areas. Both areas are small, so they quickly get crowded. Contact Mel at for assistance. For your own enjoyment & safety, as well as that of other area users, you'd be well advised to follow all SCKA general guidelines, as well as these that all the locals follow (which were learned the hard way * severe, hospitalizing injuries were involved):  
  • NO kiteboarding, power kite flying, or body-dragging allowed by the Lifeguards at Cabrillo Beach on SUMMER WEEKENDS OR HOLIDAYS from July 4th through Labor Day

Even though summer is over, the lifeguards are now preventing kiteboarding EVERY day (including weekdays) on an hour-to-hour situational basis.  If there are a few people in the way on the beach, or in the water, or if they see a couple of kiters crashing their kites near bystanders, they will stop any of us from launching.
