So I'm not the first to D-bag from a paraglider.
But that is a speedrider he's using to drop?
So I might be the frist to D-bag a paraglider from a solo paraglider.
Many have jumpet parachute before, and Antoine Montant did a parachute D-bag from a paraglider in a tumble this summer.
Also more or less same technik.

Fantastic! Great movie that shows the best sides of gliding, fun and adventure, most of all invention. Thanks for posting it and sharing.

Oh yeah
Booth kids have been flying tandem with me several times.
Also my wife fly, so we are a flying family.
The oldest girl Vera at 6 years now know how to pack rescues ;). She's into the game.
The other complain everyday she is not flying (Pippi, 3 years).

I would like to know if anyone heard anyone doing this before.
In my mind it's all so simple, and I can not believe I'm the first to D-bag myself from a solo glider.
I know lots have done it with a parachute. But never a paraglider D-bag. So please let me know if it's like I suspect. That I'm not the first.
