Flying Achievements.

  • Lone Pine Peak: We hiked and boulder-hopped for six hours, saw big horned sheep on launch, and enjoyed a really scenic flight. It’s beautiful, and well worth the extra effort and time to get up to launch.
  • Flew my 9.5m during the Costume Masquerade Contest and flew by a pterodactyl and a ying/yang sign, and flew my PG with hot air balloons at Coupe Icare in St. Hailaire, France. Super fun festival.
  • Organize speedflying and paragliding fly-ins twice a year at Soboba (Southern California), bringing together 50+ pilots from all over the world to meet each other and plan future adventures/shred fests.
  • Have flown around Switzerland, France, and Italy so far for both speedflying and speedriding trips.

Do you have any goals, dreams or plans for the next 1-2 years that you want to share?

  • Explore more of Europe, on foot and on skis.
  • Make it to Les2Alpes to meet more pilots!
  • Soar my speedwing along the coast of Hawaii around Makapu’u for hours at a time. Sounds like heaven.
