R.I.P. Richard Gallon (1973-2020)

RIP Richard Gallon - Interview from Adrenaline and Turbulence DVD

Richard Gallon, one of the first pioneers of acro paragliding and a Paragliding World Cup legend has passed away on his 47th birthday (12th Jun 2020) after battling sickness over the past years...
Richard started to paraglide in Saint Hilaire du Touvet, France at the age of 12. Only 20 years old, in 1993 he became Paragliding World Cup champion. Together with the Rodriguez brothers he was one of the founders of the Safety Acro Team that took the most significant part in the early evolution of the sport. He also founded AirG Products with the vision to provide affordable wings for this small market.
We will truly miss his ever positive vibes and uplifting spirit...
Rest in peace brother...

360 is the new SUPERVIEW

360 Cameras are a big gamechanger when it comes to onboard Acroparagliding footage. Back in the days the pilots used huge fisheyes on their MiniDV cams or Lipstickcameras with complicated cablechannels through their equipment. Just to get these rare onboardfootage - and the best would be if you could see the whole action with pilot and glider.

The possibilities with 360 seem now endless. From followcam to a psycodelic trip - you can creat everything.

So thats why Tim Alongi started a own video series: "On Board with Tim Alongi" Check it out and go flying with him.
