Interesting wave day. Released at 9500' (3300' AGL) on the upwind side of a visible rotor to the S to SE of the airport. Played in that for almost an hour and got to a bit shy of 12k, but not into the laminar wave. Bill and Sam radioed from the Duo they had found wave just a bit W of highway 41, so headed in that direction. I lost some altitude getting there but made it back up pretty easily and then connected with the wave pretty easily also. There was a nice foehn gap marking the lift until a bit S of Estancia where it snaked to the SW. Around where it changed direction the lift became unreliable, ran into some sink and the markers seemed to be lying so I turned back. Next I rode that same foehn gap way further N than I thought it would work until just a few miles E of Santa Fe airport. To the N by Santa Fe, it was weak, but was still working well enough to fly around 60 KIAS. Further to the N the foehn gap was closed and there was precip so I turned back S. On the way back gradually the sky went from a well defined foehn gap to random cuish rotor clouds that seemed very unpredictable and unorganized and I was gradually losing altitude. I ended up going a bit S of the Estancia before turning in for final glide.
