Very enjoyable video.

Nice music. Beautiful scenery. Not too long.
A few nice landings and one minor belly flop.

I thought about starting a new topic, but "Inspiration" seemed to fit. :thumbup:

Some older dudes in there also - I like that. Very smooth air, the relaxed flying is very inspirational.

1st landing shown reminded me of mine at POTM.

Knee pads, knee pads, knee pads!

Darren Brown is an inspiration because of his "sheer" enthusiasm for the sport of Hang Gliding. His many videos really show how really exciting it ....still... is to "playfully run and jump into the air. also showing the beauty and elegance of the gliders. These videos show also the "pre flight" and attention to detail that Hang Glider Pilots go through. A must for young pilots to "ingrain in their brain".
I think that young parachuting pilots are pushed into the sport at step 3, missing out on so much.
Darren really hits the nail on the head with his hang gliding videos, it is an extreme sport. Hard to learn ...easy to master.

Enjoy the inspiration and "Teach Your Children Well"

The "passion" and "excitement" in Darren Browns' voice and the quality of his videos (and his flying) is inspiring "new" and old pilots alike. He has HG fever, and it is contagious as hell , and why anyone would want to "get over" this fever (or choose a "soft" wing)......well..... .I think that Joe has the perfect "antidote" for this fever, it's called "More Lift". (inspiration in a bottle) ...sold at your nearest Hang Gliding Training Center, or practice hill. It will give you a smile to remember whether you go 5' off the ground or 5,000'.

Don't be fooled by the expensive "snake oil" that is being sold by "foreign" companys, at the concession stand surrogate . It is called OC . They will take your money, And it will surely "let you down" at a moments notice, and make you want to go to confession.

Not to worry though , Joe and his friends at US HAWKS, will fix you right "UP" with a healthy dose of "confidence". Go check out your local "Hang Gliding" Club today.



"OC" means Over Confidence...... don't get it.
