this time: earthbound speed

the best downhill skateboard movie i have seen for a long time.

truly captures the thrill of dowhill skateboarding on public roads.

very original, very artistic, beautiful locations in the high sierras of california (i think i recognize sonora pass and tioga pass ?)

a MUST see.

Always fly on sight

France, Chamonix Valley, Brevant Powerlines Takeoff....clouds and and light snowfall - sounds fine to me :-)

Sometimes its flyable even if its not ....

PS: If you try this, do your homework.... I know that mountain by heart from numerous flights, we had confirmation via radio that the valleyfloor was clear, so limited visibility and flying close to the rocks to avoid a white out in the top section was reasonable safe for us and of corse great fun...not that often do you get a chance to cloudsurf close to rocky ridges under a 11sqm canopy ,-)

3D elevator ride

You just completed that 1400hm climb, soaked up the view, the shades of the night start to crawl up the valleys and its time for a long and cold downclimb.

Did you ever fantasize of a magic elevator that would get you down to the valley floor in just a few minutes without any physical effort at all ?

...well .... my gravity powered 3D Panorama Elevator is always in my backpack...

...time 2 push the Ground Level Button...

PS: If you plan to perform a dropdown launch like the one shown in the video, make sure you have tested that your wingload / wing combo tolerates this. If not you will end up in a horseshoe frontal and will most likely find yourself on the bottom of the rockwall neatly wrapped in a colorful nylon bodybag...
