Kealakekua Light Wind Clinic

This weekend, four of us jetted over to Kealakekua, the Big Island's premier thermal site, for a brief respite from the wet and windy weather on Oahu. Jim, Joey, visitor Tonya from Vancouver and I stayed at the Ah Paradise B&B and flew two days in light overcast conditions. The second day was still overcast, but marginally more thermic than the first day. Several pilots managed to get above launch for a while, and we all made solid efforts trying to hook those wily thermals and reel them in. More than anything, it was just a rare pleasure to hang out with the Big Island boys and share their world class site. Thanks to Charlie, Greg, James, Scottie, Neil and Gene for their aloha and for all the rides to launch.
