Winter is very cold. Wetsuit needed in spring and autumn. Summer can be without. Bayside: winter temperatures usually about 38°F, summer 75°F. Ocean: winter temperatures usually 38-45°F, summer 68-72°F.

Wind

Best Months:
March, April, May, September, October, November, December
Wind Type:
Thermal, Frontal
Best Direction:
N, S, SSW
Main Direction:
WNW, NW

Best wind is from the North. Easterly wind is onshore on ocean side and offshore on bay side. Westerly is the opposite. Avoid westerly wind if on bayside because of the turbulence from the cliff on the western side of the bay. Bay is considered very good for beginners with South, North, Northwest wind. Best wind is in spring and fall. SW wind is no good-gets blocked by hills. Thermal winds usually in the summer coming from the WNW. Still not too gusty though.
