Hey E,

Not sure if your questions were answered but Campsite/Camping is flat and easy with drive-up access. The actual flying site is a short walk across the road and uphill, with some mix of wooden steps and trail that lead to a fenced 'box' at the top of the bluff. The Slope is a nice straight gentle vertical with runs from a Point to the North down to a bit South of the 'box' before rolling off,....a little like Dave's Beach only 3x as high.

On a good day, lots of endless stunts straight out in front, well over the wet sand and breakers. Worth checking out if the access works for you.

Check this Google Map location for a better idea; look across from South Camping Ground

Thanks Jacob! Will do. We need to stay on top of the sites, people do cancel a lot and then we can nab the sites.

Funny thing is I was thinking of comparing it to Dave's also. I'd say the lift is way better than Dave't though. In the past it has grown and grown as the day goes and racing around PSS and other heavy things is an option. Kind of kool is we tend to get a full mix of lift range here, the mornings are very light, and it slowly builds all day.

In general, I'd say that is the biggest difference between So Cal and Nor Cal Coastal sloping

Hello gents,

I'm in!

I just made reservations at Sunset. There is still limited availability on the upper loops.

See you there!

Reservations Made

I am so glad I saw this. I have been waiting to combine slope soaring with camping. Just reserved site 72. There looked to be a dozen sites still open when I made my reservation.

When you reserve a spot make sure it will fit your needs. They have a few sites that are tent only.

Awesome to hear guys! Glad we got some new faces as well!
Ill most likely be making shirts again this year, I will definitely need a count, so far I have about 6 or so that would like a shirt. If shirt count low, Ill make them myself, if above 20-25 range I will sublet them out and have them screen printed. I usually sell mine for $20ea (which are vinyl), but the screen printed ones might be different prices depending on how many people would like tshirts this year. I will post a pic of the shirt image soon.
