Hangglider, Lowpull

After the (by now infamous) vulcano jump, Valery Rosov again made the Russian media. This time with a (BASE gear) wingsuit demo-jump from a hangglider.

Check it out!

  1. Where was the paraglider? Where was the low pull?

    I saw a hang glider and a pull high enough for a decent canopy ride. Or is WWWN now operating with the "if it bleeds it leads" approach?

  2. For skydiving standards (which technically, this is)...yea..its a lowpull..;)

    If you need to see less than 4 seconds of canopyflight to qualify as a lowpull, than that says more about your standards than it says about our naming conventions ;)

  4. Not my standards, but Valery's. I'm sure he thought in this video he was pulling "really high", compared to the volcano stunt.
