Had a nice kite surfing day at Oldman Dam today with Styles, launching at Summer View. Riding a 9 m kite, 135 cm board, powered up, lots of jumps.....Very Happy!  The wind at SummerView was very steady, unlike Windy Point.
Note that Windy Point was closed..........Shocked?  The spillway is going much slower, water level is very nice and high, no evident dangers. 
There is very little debris in this bay, but a lot upwind by the campground.  Great conditions.  Hoping for more of the same tomorrow Sunday.

Not sure where Summer view launch is?

Care to share the directions to the launch? Always up for trying some new spots.

Thanks

SummerView is just in front of Windy Point to the right, north east.  It is in  a bunch of hedges.  There is an old road to it off the paved one that goes by Windy Point but it can be muddy when it rains so watch getting stuck.  Google Earth shows Summer View as a red dot when you zoom in.  Pass windy point entrance going east, go 1km or so, take the first left and immediate left again going straight west all the way to the lake.  Advanced launch area, grass covered, side onshore or onshore winds with ledges.  No beach.  Mud bottom. Good when Windy Point is closed or sw winds and gusty.
