Davenport, CA is located 45 miles south of San Francisco.  Arguably the best down the line wave sailing in the mainland United States.  I will only share this information because this is a SUP site.

The launch offers a channel that remains OPEN up to 20+ feet.  I have sailed it in 17 ft at 17 seconds and you could still get through the channel. 

1 - This is the typical wave sailing starting point.  This wave works well in anything from 6 to 12 feet and you can sail several hundred yards down wave.  Plenty of off the lip opportunities.  Much bigger than 12 - 15 feet and this becomes risky because you can breakdown and get trapped in the many coves to the south.  There was a guy who spent 2 nights stuck in a cove drinking cliff water and barely survived.  My friend Rob Born notice the car parked on a Saturday and again same place Sunday (e.g. he never returned).  The guy was rescued Monday morning by the Coast Guard.

2 - Good news is that when the waves get to be 12++ feet the upper reef starts to work.  This is a delightful, low penalty spot to practice wave sailing in mast high and bigger conditions.  You can set up 3/4 mile out to sea, identify your wave and then point all the way to #2 where you make a screaming bottom turn on 15++ foot waves.  Clean and AWESOME!

I haven't been there in many years because SUP is so accessible and wave sailing is like street fighting.

You tried kiting yet, OffShoot?

The vista's are out of this world.

You need to be good to do what that joker is doing. Kiters landing in the wrong places are the bane of Windsurfers these days.

[edit to add]
Hang around kiters for any length of time and the "whoops, I didn't mean to land there" stories begin with usually the most animated ones being in front of a windsurfer.

Does Dubai have winds like that????

Yes, tried kiting in Bali, but in the 3 days I had lessons, the wind was not strong enough, but it's something I'd like to try again in the right place / conditions.

I've had to do something like this in my windsurfing days though...
