Ridge Soaring Mt Tamalpais

I have been doing quite a few Tandems for San Francisco Hang Gliding this year (www.sfhanggliding.com ) Here we are at Mt Tam "B" launch. You just never know what you are going to get at Mt Tam. Notice the low cloud off my right wing tip.Often the wind will blow over the back, often fog will form down below or at launch level, sometimes the tide or 12 foot swell will cover our landing zone.
But not today, the stars were aligned. Not only was a sled ride possible but it was in fact soarable! My 3rd tandem of the day was 55 mins, and we mostly flew about 600 feet over launch. My Vario said 31'F. I am very cold in this shot. Its fun landing on the beach with beautiful mountains behind.
