It is always cool to try to impress your friends with some crazy low level stunts. They remain amazed at your courage and you will feel king of the skies. Of course you need to have the skills for such a demanding task, otherwise they’ll get the scare of a lifetime and you’ll finish the day on a hospital bed thinking what the hell possessed you to do such a crazy thing. So remember, doing crazy death spirals is cool only if you succeed in landing on your feet afterwards.

Death Spiral gone wrong

I just love the crazy frenchmen that form the Salomon Soul Flyers. This time, they went looking for a bit of fun in the Dolomites. Seems they had quite a good time. Enjoy!

Dune of Pyla paragliding

This sand dune in France, called the Dune of Pyla is a 3 kilometer long slice of paragliding paradise. And by the looks of it, it is tonnes of fun. I really enjoyed this vid, it’s funny and crazy. Besides, I’ve just added a new place to go on my vacation.

Skyward – the movie

Here is a great paragliding video I found. 7 minutes of intense paragliding aerobatics combined with a great soundtrack. Lots of helicopters, a croquette and many many more really cool action from these guys. Enjoy!

This just shows what you can do when you take some skis, take a paraglider and let gravity do its work. I promised myself to try this crazy combination at least once before I die. Honestly, I’d like to see this stuff at the Winter Olympics. It really does add some spice to skiing.

Mission impossible

This guy loses his right risers and quickly finds himself on the way down. It’s not the fall that kills you, it’s the sudden stop at the bottom. Luckily for him, he manages to open his reserve chute, land safely in the drink and live to tell the tail.

Paraglider with a mind of its own!

Well I saw this and for about half an hour i couldn’t stop laughing. Oh yeah, that paraglider had a mind of its own. I can only imagine how that guy was feeling. He was trying to launch it and at one moment it seemed he nailed it. But not for long. That glider went up for a “solo”. What can I say? Funny.
