I just got an e-mail notice of this construction at Oyster Point. I don't know if it gets much use, but if you use it and have concerns of ideas, post or PM me.
Iím Justin Smith with SKS contacting you on behalf of the Oyster Point Development, LLC concerning future work on Oyster Point.
Work to repair the landfill clay cap on the eastern edge of the peninsula is expected to begin Fall 2018. We would like to hear your input on how to best maintain access to the launch area or a possible temporary launch area during construction. Below is an illustration of the proposed work in the vicinity of the launch area.
Appreciate any insight you can provide to coordinate access during planned construction. Look forward to speaking with you in the near future. Thanks.

Oyster is still a usable launch. Although the Genentech buildings make a wind shadow so you need a floaty board to get thru it and over to the Flying Tigers cove which has strong wind.
It is good when Coyote is too WSW in summer.
In winter SE or S storm wind it can be great, with good swell and no wind shadow.
The present launch is already in a good spot with a nice lawn rigging area.
I dont think it gets much use in fall (October/November) since there is usually not much wind then.
Back in the good old days we would launch from the rocks on the west side of Genentech point. It was a seriously steep climb down the rip-rap, but we were younger and more nimble in those days
A ramp at the tip of Genentech point where the fishermen hang out would be ideal.
