But theres no wind Bob..
The Cape Peninsula continues to deliver top end stuff.With a solid NorWester predicted for Friday, a couple of us jumped the office and headed to Signal hill once again to catch the changing breeze. And what a load of fun that was , and the hill filled up all day long as slopers came and went. Who said we don’t work in Cape Town! Notable on the day was Schalk attending the early session, Chris Leal giving flying lessons to all and sundry who would listen and Noel doing a great maiden flight on the Vector 111.
Then came the beaut of the entire weekend.
With Saturday registering a flatliner of note, we only hoped that Sunday would deliver something of note. Arriving at Kommetjie at 12, barely a leaf moved, and yet here was lift…. and so it continued during the day. No wind, but lift, glorious lift. Brendan had a time of it with the Enyoni in the early light lift, Bill and a surprise visit by Lionel had a great time with some foam. Lionel needs a bit more airtime to get back to comfortable on the slope again, but at least he’s back in the air. Well done Lionel! The softest of breezes caressed the slope, the wind line approached the coastline across the ocean and the lift by 2 “o” clock was awesome and smooth as silk and made the Aldij’s talk much better as they caned the sky with Ryan and myself lapping up the lift. Darn that is one fine slope and always seems to deliver the smoothest most awesome lift when least expected.
