German Surfer having fun in the skies ..


Recommended Posts

He wouldn't have wanted unexpected turbulence when doing his "look ma, no hands" routine!

 

That actually freaked me out a little bit. And no chute either.

He has a body harness if you look carefully.

 

And you don't have to worry about sharks.

Numbers of people survive shark attacks, 500 ft falls, not so much.

Back in the 1970s the Yanks tried to rename "Hang Gliding" as "Sky Surfing" as I think they didn't like the connotations of the word "Hang". I have a book published in 1974 by Dan Poynter called "Hang Gliding - the basic handbook of Sky Surfing". Of course the term never gained acceptance but this effort makes it a reality.

I suppose you could argue that...but it's a lot closer to it than hang gliding.003_cheezy_grin.gif.a3ff7382d559df9a047d5e265974e5f3.gif

I would 100% disagree. Slope flying of any sort is very much like surfing...as in the lift comes in like rolling waves and you use it to stay on the move exactly like a surfer.. Loose life and like a surfer you sink into the water.
