It had been over 2 years since I had last flown, so I head to the beautiful North Devon coast to fly Woolacombe in some lovely smooth coastal air.

Firle - The Rough Bits
It's been quite a while since I last flew the hang glider; the last year can simply be described as crazy times! After almost a year since I last flew, I was grateful to finally get the wing out and into the sky! It certainly wasn't ideal conditions and being very rusty, was probably one the hardest flights I've had in a while, but nevertheless, great to get out again! Here's the highlights of my 30 minute 'rough' flight at Firle in East Sussex, UK. Big thanks to John for getting the nose when that gust came through at the start and great to see a new fledgling pilot on the hill too - we need to see more of them! - Stay Safe, Fly Safe!

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

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!
