The SFBA's mission is protecting and enhancing recreational access to San Francisco Bay

The San Francisco Bay racing scene has been at the forefront of foil racing since the first foil flew. In fact the St' Francis Yacht club held one the worlds first Wing Foiling races on the planet. While the area is home to some of the worlds top racers what you may not know is that the racing scene is open, and inclusive, and perfect for first time racers. 

For over 35 years the San Francisco Boardsailing association has been active in protecting the Berkley Marina from various attempts to effectively destroy it as a recreation destination. Sadly the fight is not over. (photos City of Berkley)

Toll plaze kiteboarding
The location of one of the best secret spots for kiting in Bay Area is betrayed by its name: Toll Plaza is one of the more underutilized locations on the Bay and you'll find it--you guessed it--at the Toll Plaza just North of the Bay Bridge.

As part of our ongoing outreach the SFBA would love to hear back on everyone's best practices around safety gear. And let's get specific. What brand? Where did you get it? Why do you like it? Feel free to share this around and either just add your thoughts to one of our social media posts or for more involved responses send us an email at sfbaboard(@)

It's been a great 2023 Wind Season but now it’s that time of year when things start to change. As the Fall season approaches we begin to go through the annual fading & shifting of the winds. The SFBA and all our site stewards want to remind you to be extra cautious in the afternoons as it's time for the SUMMER FADE. (Photo By Nicholas Osterman)
