Windsurfing and Kiteboarding on Sparks Reservoir

General Information

It's OK if you're desperate and want a pleasant longboard session someplace close to town. It would be a great place for teaching. There's lots of grass rigging area right next to the boat launch. The down side is that it's pretty much a puddle surrounded by trees and low hills. Amazingly, I did manage a number of planning runs in the gusts (11.0 sail+Formula) and even a couple jibes. Since it's a state park it's $5.00 to get in (or $50.00 annual pass).
