Today the peak was supposed to be at ~ 6:00 PM with gusts to 18 MPH. The gusts even hit 20 at about 6:15! Unfortunately I was not lucky enough to get out to enjoy this - and yes it hurt :-(.

Around 5:00 it really filled in with more of a NW shift. There were some nice kickers out there which made for some sweet boosts. I was doing well landing most - some pretty hard! Had a couple that went down and under water before popping up - a bit too much of a nose first landing ;-). Had a couple…Continue
