What is your preferred crosswind landing technique - wheel landing on one wheel, or three pointer wing down into the wind?

Flew with a 10 knot direct crosswind today and had me wondering what you guys prefer to do. I’m not new to crosswind landings, but this J3 is so much lighter than any other airplane I’ve ever flown. Makes me definitely have to work for it on a crosswind landing.

Thanks all!!
