Roberts Bay on an East? The Bay is not large enough to let the wind smooth out.It will be turbulent and gusty. It is also an area for water sports. I don`t think the water skiers, tubers and wakeboarders are going to give much room to kiters as that is the only place for them to do their sport. Also launching and landing provides No room for error!
IMO: Please reconsider this as a safe place to ride

i wakeboard in the 'bay' (more like a big pond) and it is bordered by private docks on 2 sides and the channel on the other. since its the only place for water sports and the sail club also runs there it can get very crowded very fast.
