Slope Soaring in Holland Michigan

The past few days were great for sloping. Winds on this day were 30mph however on Saturday 10/15 they were over 40mph.

Site is Tunnel Park in Holland Michigan. Sand dune is at least 80' high and perfect shape for west winds off Lake Michigan. Stairs up the back for easy climb and plenty of room at the top too.

All the flying wings are Ridge Runners. Mine weighs 17.8 oz and had 4.5oz of lead on it. On another day I had 10oz of ballast on it.

That was another guys plane and he has a few similar. I know one is a Fox but not sure what the larger one is to be honest.

I spent a lot of time chasing girls at the state park as well.
