Most of the sailing in the SF Bay seems to be what's considered "bump and jump". I guess that means you can expect pretty big chop and breeze on most sailable days and the technique you're using mainly involves going fast and getting air in one direction, then wave-riding "chop" on the way back.
One of the few exceptions on my side of the bay is a spot located right next to the San Francisco 49ers old stadium, Candlestick Park. Windsurfers affectionately call the neighboring launch "The Stick". There are a few different kinds of windsurfing practiced there: beginners and intermediates, slalom "power" sailors, and world-class freestylers.
Yesterday I sailed the spot in gusty 20-29mph breezes with a 5.0 Simmer Crossover lent to me by Kevin Kan of Sunset Sailboards. I felt overpowered most of the time, but that's probably because I've got the guts and strength of a 7 year-old girl. It was a really fun session though, more water-starting practice than jibing practice to be honest. Here's what I see as the pros and cons of this site.
Windier than other spots
Lots of spectators and passers-by
One of the few places good for flatwater sailing.
Great place to watch a high level of freestyle windsurfing right near shore
Good amount of parking
Gustier than other spots
Slightly questionable neighborhood
Lots of sharp rocks to walk over and underwater rocks to catch fin near shore
Extreme opportunities to embarrass yourself in front of good sailors.
Severely lacking in the shorts-over-wetsuit quota
