Was it ridable or to gusty? Almost pulled the trigger on Lake Andria but decided the storms might make for unstable wind.

I saw the graph yesterday. Looked like a big smile. Way up in the morning at 30knts, back down to 7knts in the afternoon, then ramping back up to 30. Really an all day process i haven't seen in a very long time. Weird, but yes that's late spring/early summer for yah. Skunking season may have begun

the lake definitely has started to partition off for wind patches prolly due to the season/conditions changing. there was also periods of wind that would come and go. weeds starting to form in the flats and t-storms more in the scene.

that said, its pretty easy to see this and for a while i rode consistent and powered by the islands and then same by the launch for while. Really cant say any of the changes matter so long as you get it. the power surges of wind that only happen at wolf are really cool mid trick to get a new tork. feels like kiteloop power without sending the kite thru. lots of fun and good training if u ask me.
