There is a bunch of beaches on this site, complete with directions and conditions.

I checked out Alameda beach, Coyote Point and 3rd ave. Be *very* careful on Alameda. There are lots of people and kids running around there. Coyote Point is a good place to learn with an instructor. There are all kinds of hazards to get used to, without being too dangerous. 3rd ave is THE place to be for an experienced kiter. Awesome wind and a great crowd to watch.

For lessons, you can contact Paul - I took a class from him. He is very knowledgable and flexible on his teaching schedules. More details at

I also heard that Berkeley Boardsports do lessons. Check them out at
