it's a crazy bumpy ride switching from left to right dying Down inbetween unpredictable....it's only worth it if the wind is north northwest. Anything out of the north or north north East or North East the wind is on and off and real bumpy and it sucks but like I said if its north Northwest it can be awesome. I will be a brown Bluff tomorrow at 9 a.m. That's where the Santa Ana's are the best

My bad two are from little Mountain the Viking and the Pike in the clouds the other is not. However Like Dave said it can be great or horrible but I have had some of the best flights of my life on the backside of little mountain. A week or so ago me and Dan went flying but the wind was so strong you couldn't fly much of anything. I flew the Typhoon fully ballasted and had a time with it Dan flew a couple of wings but couldn't get them out in front of the hill. I was able to Fly a Needle fully ballasted but it was gnarly , I guess when the wind is blowing 45-55mph any place is going to be crazy. Here is the one I thought I posted I removed the other.

The Bluff is a great spot to fly although the landing looks easy it can be a handful I found out the hard way. I know I have some video of the bluff when I come across it again I will post it I think Dave is ripping it up.
