Any recommendations for a road trip in early April for some wave kiting and also surfing spots? Don't want to drive as far south as Punta San Carlos, live in the gorge. Yeah might be able to play on the OR coast then.

Central California - Santa Cruz down to Santa Barbara.
Pismo, Jalama, C Street, Waddell's, Scotts Creek.
It's a great road trip.

Second that trip. Best combo surf trip and kite trip I ever did was in April around the central coast. Scott’s creek was 6 feet one day and I surfed it for 3 hours and kited it for like 5 more. So epic!!!

Spring time in Cali means clearing winds which can blow hard for a couple days at a time.

Pismo is a great spot - huge beach, drive your vehicle right onto the beach, onshore conditions. If its too big on the outside, you can just play in the shallows.

Jalama is an advanced wave spot that is almost always windy. Remote and beautiful.

Santa Barbara is more of a foiling spot - winds are usually light or too offshore.

Ventura is a really fun spot that is windy most days. Can have big surf or just bump-and-jump.

County Line in Malibu is another great spot - but things get more crowded as you approach LA.

Good surfing all along this stretch too.
