Video highlights of my flight from Famara and the famous Famara Cliffs. Unfortunately the battery on the camera did not last for the entire flight and missed my awful landing which resulted in two damaged uprights but it was worth it, this was a flight like no other that I have had to date!

An Early Flight

An early flight at the Devil's Dyke with friends. This short video captures the highlights of my 30 minute flight at the Devil's Dyke. I opted for an early flight as the wind was forecast to drop off and I assumed many paragliders would be airborne later in the day. This was my strategy to avoid flying with the crowds. Also, you may notice a new camera on the right upright. This is the SJ4000 and it was set to take a photograph every 20 seconds. It produced some pleasing results! Not bad for a cheap camera!

Devil's Dyke

Finally, my first flight of 2017. This is my video highlights of my 39 minute flight at the Devil's Dyke. It wasn't quite the epic everyone had hoped for, but a lovely day soaring with Buzzards, Kestrels and friends - looking forward to many more days like this to follow!

To The Clouds and Beyond

My memorable flight at Bo Peep where I finally reached cloud base, had my longest flight to date and completed a small XC. The only negative : the video camera battery didn't catch the most interesting part at the end!

Hard Going at the Devil's Dyke

An afternoon flying at the Devil's Dyke on my Wills Wing U2 160 in a rough north westerly. I eventually manage to work my way down the ridge to Truleigh then return back to the Devil's Dyke for an easy top landing (although some walkers could have made that more interesting!).

My Hang Gliding Crash

It had to happen one day - I crash my hang glider. Unfortunately, the impact was so hard the video stopped and didn't capture the actual crash but I was fortunate to be able to walk away and the glider was repairable!

Hang Gliding at the Devils Dyke

An enjoyable flight in light winds at the Devil's Dyke. Still adjusting to the new harness, I'm over cautious and fly away from traffic (and the lift) and head to the bottom landing field. I almost completely fluff a bottom landing as I'm still struggling to get on the up-rights!

An Ugly Landing

While still getting used to my new harness, I bottom land at the Devils Dyke and am not quite prepared for the wind to be so far off to the west!

Firle Flying in the Rain

A couple of not so good flights at Firle. The second flight was cut short when it began to rain! The video reveals a little problem I was having with my harness which I failed to rectify on my second flight.
