Fun day team flying with Ron (L) and introducing him to wave flying. Fairly weak blue wave with some convection underneath. Interesting wind profile with strong winds and a wind gradient not really starting until 10k or so and peak winds right at the edge of class A at maybe 40 knots SW. At takeoff, surface winds weren't even SW, they were weak easterly. Kind of difficult of a start taking a good 20 minutes to peak my head over 7000' and wasn't very far from needing a relight. Took me another half an hour at least till I finally found wave a few miles upwind of the Dogskins around 12k. Had several upwind and downwind wave jumps throughout the day, some of which cost me thousands of feet in altitude, but I did manage to find lift after every jump. The I-80 wave gap by Verdi wasn't too bad today going N or S. By 16:00 it was starting to weaken up as the winds were barely 20 knots and the best you could hope for was maybe a knot up right at minimum sink speed in some of the patches of wave lift, so turned home and called it a day. Landed with moderate NW winds.
