SCENE

The sister beach to Golden Gardens, Carkeek is located about a half mile north. The beach is small (unlike this photo - especially at high tide) and can get very crowded with beachgoers in summer. CK typically has a shorter season than GG, and is noted for it’s lofty winds. The wind can be flukey to non-existent near the shore and immediately downwind. It’s advisable to launch and get off the beach & upwind as quickly as possible.
