Light breeze at surface, 20 mph at 50 feet! I took off from the runway and when I got to treetop level the wing was pulled dramatically as it entered the flow. I took a couple of good swings and flew into clear air. The wind slowly increased as I climbed and topped out at 30 miles an hour at 2000 feet. So… I guess there was a good wind SSE moving across Florida and surface friction slowed it to almost nil on the runway. Nothing else to report, I chased a large flock of cranes and spotted a small single engine plane departing from PG Airport. We were approaching head to head so it happened fast. Since I was outside PGA airspace there was no foul.
