Kitespot: Waddell Creek

Holy smoke, yesterday was a great kitesurfing day. I was at Waddell Creek which is located about 20 miles up Highway 1 from Santa Cruz. The weather was perfect, no clouds and perfect wind for my 9m Waroo.

    hi Tom,

    really liked your pictures of Wadell, 3rd, and Sherman. my home spot is 3rd too. kiteboarding for just 2 years. never tried Wadell yet but very excited to go this spring. have a 12m which is too big for Wadell. sounds like you have a 9m. is that the best size for Wadell or can that be a little big for the spring winds there? very interested to know since i want to buy a new kite this year especially for Wadell, but have no idea what to get. any suggestions?

    thanks in advance,

    hey drew, depending on your weight you probably want to get something between 7-9m.
