Red Bull Speed Run

The Red Bull Speed Run is probably the ultimate competition for the hang gliding adrenaline junkie. Get as fast as you can as low as you can through a series of gates… a recipe for a fantastic show. Lots of cool low passes, water skimming, loops and more crazy action performed by these professional dare devils.

Six years of hang gliding at Point of the Mountain, Utah compressed in a few minutes of intense video. To me, this is one of the best hang gliding videos out there. The stuff these guys do is absolutely crazy but seems they have a lot of fun and that’s what flying should be all about… hanging out and having fun with your mates. This is absolutely a must see video, whether you are or aren’t a fan of the hang gliders.

Hang Gliding Bear

Great piece of animation. This bear is probably one of the unluckiest bears ever 🙂 Anyway enjoy this great piece of animation showing that even bears would like to fly…although this one doesn’t quite seem to be in his own element.

Speed gliding is all about flying your hang glider as fast as possible through a series of gates. Ever heard the expression “treetop level” ? Well, guess you can call this one grasstop level. Sit back and enjoy this wild and crazy ride.

Killer loop

To avoid accidents, that is why you must know where you are and who is flying next to you. This guy just wanted to entertain his friends and chose to do a final loop with his hang glider before landing. As you can see, it was a big mistake. He crashed into a paraglider and lost control of his own glider, did a nose dive towards the planet and hit ground fast and all this happened in front of his friends. Yup, that really hurt.
