Does Bluff Cove take S and SW pretty well? I'm guessing it does better then Fermin for these types of winds.

No Bluff does not like any kind of south or sw wind. If the wind gets even a little south the air gets very funky. Bluff is best in due west or even NW. If it goes full North then you head over to North Face.

Lost wing at Fermin

I got a PM from a buddy this week but as I was out of town until today I had no way of looking myself. I did go today though and spent about 20min on the side of the cliff looking around but could not spot it. Anyone find a wing at Fermin on 2/12-2/15?

This is an old picture of it and I think it was modified to accept a center fin instead of winglets. It also might have gotten a different cover job, but this is what it looked like on 12/31/2012.

BTW, the above post regarding the missing wing has been resolved. Thanks all for keeping an eye out.

By the way, are you guys still flying on the weekends? Or does BC not work so great with the more southernly wind hit we get during the winter months?

There were a few of us out two Sundays ago. Lift was fine but not great. The regulars said the turnout has been low lately.
