WAVE SEASON CONTINUES?

 

First, congratulations go to 15-year old Robles Fisher who flew his first solo last weekend.  Not yet old enough to drive, but plenty old enough to fly!

Looks like we’re in for a windy week this time around, mostly out of the west.  If the forecast is accurate, Saturday could bring classic wave – crosswind permitting…

 

THERMAL SEASON IS HERE!

Congratulations to Joe Capra, Christopher Bryant, and brothers Jean and Christian Roche who flew their first glider solos recently!  Just in time for…

The coming week might very well bring our best thermal conditions so far this year, with warming temperatures and softening winds.  We may also see some degree of cloudiness, adding the twin benefits of thermal markers and cooler areas on the surface to enhance the dynamics of convection.

SEE YOU SOON

HAPPY OFFICIAL SPRING!

During this very wet week on the coast we even got some rain up here in the desert, believe it or not.  Now things will change again, with sun predicted for Friday and well-marked thermals on Saturday.  Sunday may be noticeably cooler again, but don’t be surprised by more thermals.  And after that, serious springtime conditions should kick in for good.

SEE YOU SOON!

ORDER YOURS NOW

Coming out of winter, our recent windy period will continue through the weekend.  Chance of wave is dependent on wind direction, and best bet for now will be Friday.  Meanwhile, thermal season is officially here!  Early spring thermals can be boisterous and even deceitful, but well worth the price of admission.  Get ’em while they last!
