The GROUNDHOG is for ground-handling.
Small, simple design for easy training
Ground-handling is one of the best ways to improve your flying
Can be used to practice ground-handling in higher winds than normal paragliders.
Not for flight!
Ground-handling is one of the most important aspects of paragliding progression. With the GroundHog, pilots can progress and learn the most basic or most advanced aspects of ground-handling in strong or light winds, safely and easily.
Because the GroundHog is considerably smaller than a normal wing, it can be used for ground-handling training in higher wind, meaning that schools and students will lose less training days because of weather. Also, the smaller size of the GroundHog makes it easier to use. Students are less likely to be dragged or picked up, and the wing’s quick reactions to brake input and footwork help to increase the progression of the pilot.
