Actually, Third is a hell of a place to learn period. In fact, if you
still wear booties Third is NOT the place to be. Think of how your
suppose to feel your way down the ramp during high tide. Also, speed
harness users should Never go in the water at 3rd.....the more chances
of catapulting after a fin catching session at low tide on screaming

Honestly, 3rd is the BEST place to learn jibing during low tide (just
watch the sandbars!)
It's also fun just watching the seasoned sailors.

Sorry but that does come off a bit patronizing and snobbish - sending
everyone who can't jibe to Tigers or Candlestick. Its like saying
who can't loop shouldn't sail Maui.

Not to sound too patronizing, but if you can't jibe, Third is a hell of
place to learn. You might want to consider nailing them before going
to Third too much. It's a great way to get tired and be dragged
requiring third party intervention.

In contrast, Flying Tigers and Candlestick are great places to learn to
