Crestline Soaring Society
The Hang Gliding & Paragliding Club for San Bernardino, CA, USA
The CSS is a non-profit organization (501(c)(3)) which exists to serve the foot-launched flying community in the San Bernardino Mountains - Crestline & Marshall Peak in particular - and Southern California and beyond in general.
We encourage you to come and be a part of one of the premier flying sites the world has to offer.
Our flying season is technically over but we had awesome conditions and so many outstanding pilots at AJX this past weekend; it was amazing. From all over: Washington, Utah, Spain, Canada, NorCal even Fontana. Rad. Bunch of pro PGrs. Zac Majors and friends on the HG side. Cool experience chatting with and learning from the talent in the LZ.
So it really felt like a fly-in or something. We should post-hoc declare that last weekend was a fly-in. Just to get it right.
If you are among those in the LZ who were wondering what the orange flickering light on the 400 launch was, it was indeed a fire.
If anyone has contact with Paul ( Northwing rep ) who is visiting CA and may be stayng at the Ranch...............please have him contact me ref - harness. Thanking you ahead of time for your help.
My wife June and I will be at Marshall this weekend as well as the following. If anyone plans to shuttle up, please let us know. We are game to take turns driving.
Nick & June
A very BIG thank you to Lauren, Mike, Kyle, Kevin, Andy and Owen for helping clean the Pond today. Our small crew lowered the Pond water down to approximately twenty inches, and got busy pressure washing the filter, removing trash, sludge, glasses, flip-flops, and several hundred pounds of rocks! And a shout out to the Koi fish for putting up with us, your Pond will be filled back up in about ten days.

Went up to Regionals with David B. I was expecting to get high and ride a SE wind aloft to Sylmar. David launched first and flew into thermal lunch break and got skunked. I waited about ten minutes until it filled in and hucked off with my 4K camera hoping to shoot some UHD video and I did. But is pretty bad turbulence and all kinds of switching winds. Rebardan ahd launched Crestline around noon and I saw a strange orange glider on the back ridge about 7500' of so. I was greatly encouraged by this sight while waiting for it to get good on Regionals.
