Go Places – My Paragliding Adventures So Far

Over the long long winter I have set myself a challenge of going through all my old Gopro footage and making a compilation video showing all the amazing places that paragliding has taken me.

Spurred on by last years Wessex Club video competition, I have discovered that shorter videos are far more entertaining. No one wants to watch 30 minutes of someone ridge soaring the local ridge! I have decided to limit myself to 3 minutes unless I have a good reason to go longer (a story to tell or an instructional video).

To make it extra hard for myself I had chosen Isla de Encanta by the Pixies as the music for the video, a fast paced number that only lasts 1:41! Squeezing nearly five years of paragliding experiences into that time has been very tough and time consuming but I’m proud of the result…

Whitesheet Paragliding Record

New PB, wahoo! Not the easiest flight, had to work hard to avoid the airspace in the strong wind. Got decked after all that hard work chasing a sailplane, what a plonker. Worked out as 74km, if I can make it to my house next time it will be 100km 🙂
