    For the H4s who enjoy coastal ridge flying when it’s not crowded, post-frontal days can be a blessing. Yesterday was one of those days. By the time I landed the wind died back and the place was crowded. I got my 2+hours of military aircraft noise and relaxing surf sounds plus seeing pilots I rarely encounter along with some new faces. My Hero8 shut down early but I still caught some nice scenes and sounds.

    Hello Jonathan,  If the AGCSC ever can get permission to winch sailplanes there again I will have to bring the Pilatus down and join you to do some “Glider Tag” part 2, the Torrey Edition.   I could always join you with the Super Floater.  Last flew it there 7 years ago as seen here:

    I prefer to fly there when it is blowing 15 to 20+ when the lift is plentiful and the Paragliders are sparse.
