Unknown

I wanted to test myself against the desert. To travel by paraglider over the harshest part of South Africa, solo, self-supported. To feel like a bird. To be free. But the desert is dry, and ancient … and it doesn’t care.

On the Rocks (Staying Up, Early)

Join Greg on a west-facing mountain slope early in the day, as we try and stay aloft together and work the scraps of lift to avoid an embarrasing landing at the base of the pass. In this episode: investigating sloping terrain, keeping turns flat and tight, turning before you leave the lift, matching your proximity with your skill level, looking for recurring patterns to find lift, gliding fast and straight in sink, using figure-of-eights to follow the lift, alternating between lift sources, being patient and working for every metre.

Woody Valley Wani Light 2 harness review

The WANI LIGHT 2 is a reversible airbag harness with integrated back protection and reserve, similar to the Supair Altirando Lite and Gin Verso 3, intended to help you get your kit really compact and still have some back protection. Although the Skywalk Breeze and Advance Easiness 3 are similar, they are split-leg designs with no seatboard. The WANI LIGHT 2 has a broad lightweight seatplate that helps to improve the minimalistic (but certified) crash protection and provides maximum weightshift control and feedback.
