I know there is a monthly kite fly down in Huntington Beach, but I'm looking for something a little more traffic friendly...  I live in Santa Monica, so Culver City and Venice are about as far as I want to go.

Anyone know of any good, kite-friendly fields in the area?

I don't mind sand at all, but parking at any of the close beaches is a pain.  The real issue with fields around here is finding one that doesn't have some sort of group sport game going, which gmpas doesn't indicate.

Also, I'm just as interested in finding people to fly with as find places to fly! Wink

I'm swamped until after the new year, but I'll definitely shoot you an email when I've got some more free time.  You guys fly on weekends?
