Charlie: Champion of the Dune (still, always!)
Charlie Piccolo has once again been crowned the King of the Dune at the 2008 Wagas Festival at the Dune du Pyla. We weren’t terribly surprised that he won, to be honest, as Charlie’s skill is truly unmatched! Congrats Charlie, that’s awesome!
Charlie is currently flying the Mantra M2 at the dune, which he loves for it’s efficiency, speed, and energy. To see some video of Charlie ripping it up all over France, click here: https://www.flyozone.com/paragliders/en/downloads/videos/_33901/

If you haven’t been able to visit a classic sand dune soaring site yet then we highly recommend that you make it a priority in your flying career. It is an amazing aspect of our sport in terms of pleasure and learning… there is almost no better situation in which you can enjoy learning about your wing and how to fly it at an accelerated rate. But wherever you fly, remember that we do it because it’s fun, and we never stop learning!
