So Cal beach locations for flying an Libelle?
So I had this idea that it would be fun to take my camper rig to So Cal and spend a week parking along the beach area during the day and flying my soon to have Libelles to my hearts content. I am imaging beach areas with a slight slope to surf on. Would this be allowed on semi populated beach area's? Some more isolated cliff spots would be on my list too but flying within sight of bikini's sounds best.

Go over to the Slope Forum and check out the San Diego, Bluffs Park (Long Beach) and Bills (Oceanside) threads. Also check out the Libelle thread there... a bunch of slopers will be flying Libelles soon.
P.S. If you are ever passing through Flagstaff, AZ, let me know. We have some great slopes.
P.P.S. If you get to Santa Barbara, make sure you visit Dream-Flight and maybe get a chance to fly with Michael Richter. He is super helpful and a wonderful pilot.

I have flown ellwood blufs a few times and its great. Also if you have a motorhome agreat place to park on the 1 is by Rincon. My parents do that all the time and my dad flys electrics on the beach, but there is a great spot above old town Ventura called the "cross" and if you have a car in tow, you can stay in Rincon and drive to the cross to fly.
Also just up from rincon is a small Paraglidersite but its not too popular for PG so people fly here too and its a nice mellow beach slope lift site.

So Cal Slopes
Not on the beach, but two slopes In Pacific Palisdes, CA that I'm pretty sure are still available, are located on the North and South of Temescal Canyon Rd. from the Pacific Coast Highway. You have to go up Temescal and then go left or right.
To the left, or North, drive to the end of Mt. Holyoke Ave. Fairly long slope facing the Pacific ocean. My wife, Barbara Henon, Chris Adams and myself all did our 8 hour slope flight on that slope.
To the right, or South, drive to the end of Asilomar Blvd. The road has a gate as the cliff slides from time to tome. Just past the gate is the slope locals call "The Point". Good lift there as well.
I agree with on lister who complained that the "Search" is the worst thing in RC Groups. On Bing I found:
Good luck and post your adventures!
