Looking for advice - Keeping a nice burn in the wind

I’ve been at the beach for the last few days and trying to smoke on a screened in porch. There’s a constant 10-15 mph wind outside so probably 5-8 on the porch here. I couldn’t keep a Partagas Ramón y Ramón to burn smoothly at all and the night before with a Macanudo wasn’t much better. How do you smoke sticks and enjoy them when it’s breezy?

    the old joke is; Smoking a cigar in the wind is like forgetting your anniversary, no matter how hard you work to make it up, you ain't gettin' any.

    I just try to find a place that has some wind blockage like next to a building.

    Cherry windward.
    “It has been a source of great pain to me to have met with so many among [my] opponents who had not the liberality to distinguish between political and social opposition; who transferred at once to the person, the hatred they bore to his political opinions.” —Thomas Jefferson (1808)



    Unmitigated risk aversion is the new Puritanism; complete with witch hunts funny outfits and humorless preachers thundering doom. The Deity is Safety; Satan is a Lawyer; but the object is the same: to suck the life out of life and tell you how to live it.

    I agree.  However, depending how strong the wind is, I tend to get a few small burn holes in my shirt.  If I don't do it that way, it burns weird.

    Isn't she a pole-dancer?  How's that going to help?
