It's plenty windy on my deck in the burbs, or perhaps gusty.

I lack faith in the wind at the lake today. Then again, if you sit there you might just score a few rides.

Score a few rides indeed.. I was on the beech today with rookie (coincidentally a nooB) and after a quick impromptu lesson and shootin the shiz, it picked up quite a bit and I got about three solid sessions in.. The best one was during a freak patch of fog that rolled in.. Hope everyone was that lucky!!

I noticed Keegs blowing this evening, if it persists looks like I may hit an evening moonlit session, fingers crossed! :wink:
