head to the coast the wind in the shore break seems to get a little of an uplift (probably warmer air over the sand is causing an uplift) – some of my bigger loftier jumps were at Manzanita. Plus you can use the wave as a kicker.
This doesn’t sound right. Isn’t the wind the we all are kiting with when kiting in waters of Oregon and Washington usually side to side-on wind? Thus coming off the cool waters of the Pacific.
The smooth glassy water before the wave faces are perfect for extra load-and-pop (especially when one times/uses the extra tidal surge/force in their favor) and the waves themselves are awesome ramps/kickers. Just be careful of the shallows!
