Just before Xmas Olly Bridge joined us on one of our Club pilot Courses that we run regularly here in Spain. Having been kite surfing since he was a toddler, Olly, now 23, is now a leading kiters in the UK. Accruing his fair share of Competition titles form Junior champion to more recent European racing titles. He got inspired to try his hand at Paragliding from a fellow competitor.
He joined us for a week of paragliding soaring and ground handling, needless to say his kite skills came in really handy for the ground handling and reverse launching. Kite surfing really helps to understand the dynamics of flying your paraglider, you understand the pendular force and get to grips with the feeling of the wing in turns and flight.
The bonus is when its too light for kite surfing its ideal for Paragliding... anyway here his video of from his most recent kiteing.
FlySpain run courses for all levels of pilots, as a school we run courses for complete beginners and we can offer bespoke one to one and small group courses for kite surfing groups who might like to come and learn another great aerial sport.See our calendar for details or drop us a line here
