Got out there early again, easy parking! Wind looked so, so, but ramped up. Rigged the 5.0 in anticipation and got some good runs in before it jacked up and was a bit hard to handle. Probably should have rigged the 4.5, but wanted to rig the 4.0. It blew just strong enough for it, for a bit. Then backed off. Lot of quick-schlogging but a lot of good rides too in the bigger gusts. And any time I ride a 4.0 it's a pretty big day.
