At last some air time :-)

Its been a while with the long and miserable winter but finally I got some air time again The weather was actually surprisingly nice with a lot of sunshine.

Just bought a new paraglider

This weekend was the first in quite a while that I could go paragliding again. I was in the market for a new glider and I had a number of test flights on the Airwave Sport 3 and I really like it Guess I am no longer in the market as I have one on order now. Now all I have to do is wait for good weather and the next trip to FranceMaurice de Beijerwww.TheProblemSolver.nl
