i lived in santa barbara for four years and didn't find the flying there satisfying at all.
although the kites have changed quite a bit since i lived there but i didn't find there to be enough wind. when there was there weren't any large enough open spaces which didn't have a ton of people.

I lived in S.B. a little over 20 years ago. I used to live on the Mesa, across from the City College. I used to walk down to the beach and fly a stack of Rainbow stunt kites on the beach all the time.
Since then I've visited a few times and I found the winds quite nice with a Rev.

According to the gadget on the web page, it's a 2091 mile drive for me now. Guess I wont be making the festival. ;)
