Volume 1 of Bruce Goldsmiths great book ’50 ways to fly better’ has been released as an eBook… you can pop it in your kindle and try to work out why you landed short while you’re waiting for your retrieve or nod smugly to yourself if you are first in goal and waiting for others to land 😉

I’m proud to be representing Soldier On this season at each of the National Paragliding Competitions.
SoldierOn have become a/the leading organisation that actually provides help and assistance to Australian Veterans effected by their service to the nation and not just ‘raise awareness’.
Soldier On works to help Australia’s wounded in three ways, by enhancing, inspiring and empowering them on their road to recovery.
SoldierOn has opened reintegration centres and soldier recovery centres, supports wounded in participating in adventure activities and education and other rehabilitation and has corporate partners that assist in reintegration to the civilian community to lead enriching and worthwhile lives.

With a steady Northerly pushing fog down Spencers Gulf an Ozone 15m Zero got thrown around at Snapper Point, Noarlunga.
The first paragliding competition, the Canungra Cup, kicks off on 27 September 2014.
The event runs for a week and culminates with a presentation dinner and prizegiving on 4 October.
This competition is a ripper, with all transport each day to launch and a full retrieve service included at the early bird price of $370 if paid by August31 it represents great value.

See you there!
Well we finally had some good weather and time to get the Zero up for a play.
Think mini Delta2; fast responsive, solid, did I say fast? 🙂
The Bright Open has been a blast this week and the Mantra M6 has achieved great results for the pilots flying them. With a very ‘ozone’ feel to the wing it has predictable and precise handling and a wide speed range.
The stall point is very deep and so is the spin point… You can get quite aggressive on the tightest thermals or finnesse more gentle climbs comfortably. Collapses are manageable and rectified quickly and more importantly preventable with the cues the wing provides and changes of AoA with the speed system and C-risers.
All in all a really fun wing and a high performance ‘classic D’
The new lightweight pod harness is ready to order. There is about a 40 day wait at the moment. A$1200 delivered
The Buzz Z4 is a great wing for the recreational pilot, most sizes and colours are in stock.
This video covers the latest and greatest moments of adventure in the air of the last four years dedicated to fly in different places such as Italy, Ireland, Brazil, France, Chile … always looking for the best and most pleasant places for the flight.
