McKinley kicking off right now. Almost as strong as Wednesday was. Been here since 2 and wind has been building.

McKinley was nice tonight. Great looking jumps Ryan. It's awesome watching you progress so quickly.

Thanks Jeff! I’m still working on the landings (seems to be easier landing one way than the other?) but I don’t know if there’s a more fun feeling right now!

The wind picked up much stronger than forecasted. I hope it held for you and Abraham for a little bit. It was prime between about 2:30-4:00pm.

Sunday afternoon conditions are looking similar except a SSW wind. Fingers crossed.

Jumping one direction is always more natural than the other.

One a side note, I was approached by two different "Rangers" and told that McKinley beach is shut down for the rest of the year. No swimming, paddling or kiting in the little alcove.

I talked with them extensively and we can set up and take down on the beach, but they requested we walk over to the gravel beach going out and coming in. I was happy with that compromise and would caution others to follow this.
