Flying Frenzy News


We've been using Facebook for all our news recently so have a look at; http://www.facebook.com/pages/Flying-Frenzy-Paragliding/227534610623727?ref=tn_tnmn to see what we have been up to.


Video Shoot

The Guardian's travel video maker Edwin Hasler came and joined us just before Easter to make a short video for their website. It was a rather windy day over on Telegraph Hill (Batcombe) but the flying was great. After a few shots of me from the ground, Edwin joined me in the air on the tandem. Despite the strong wind the air was gorgeous and before long we bumped into an irresistibly mellow and wide thermal and went off on a quick XC to Piddle Hinton. Edwin was a little taken aback to find himself whisked up to over 2 grand but kept filming. (The boot shot in the vid feature his feet hence the lack of Hanwags!). Many thanks to Gary for very quick retrieve.

Video Shoot 2

After an afternoon of windy ground handling at the bottom of Eggardon with Jono, Peter and Harry we noticed a handful of chaps going up and down along the top road on a bike with one of them sat on a trailer attachment. I flew up to them and had a quick hover-chat. It turns out they were from the up and coming band Clock Opera and were filming for the video to their single Belongings. I had to offer them a tandem for a new camera angle and before too long we were making numerous passes over singer Guy stood on the edge. Sadly our footage didn't make it into the final cut and the bit on the top road was only a few seconds.
