Strong current under the Golden Gate

kitesurfing under the golden gate bridge in san francisco Today’s current was nearly 6 knots flowing out under the Golden Gate Bridge but that didn’t keep Steve Bodner (USA4) from getting on the water for some formula windsurfing training. I met up with steve at Fort Point – he was in the water and I was on shore. At times Steve looked like he was on a treadmill, sailing full speed but making no forward progress. There was also one brave person kitesurfing under the bridge and I got this shot just as he jumped. Luckily both riders were able to make it safely back to Crissy Field while there was still enough wind to overcome the strong current.Check out the photo gallery.
