Minden rocks ... good wave in August!!
On Tuesday the forecast said today had a chance of wave. Wednesday and Thursday the forecast said the direction would be good but the wind speed would be too light. At 6 am it was calm on the ground and blue ... the forecast said the winds would be too light. At 8 am some rotor cu formed so we gave it a go.
It was mostly blue and all blue after 4 pm. The wind speeds were on the light side most of the day. However, the lift was relatively consistent so we kept going. In the evening when the low level air became stable, the wave was ripping good.
The DG is equipped with landing, strobe, and position lights.
Thanks Jackie for crewing.
