Need a quick pick-me-up? This edit from the POV of a Swiss paragliding master should do the trick.
Christian ‘Chrigel’ Maurer may be the most decorated paragliding pilot of all time. To date, the athlete’s won seven Red Bull X-Alps events, four X-Pyr races, three Paragliding World Cup Association events, and 11 World Cups.
When he isn’t busy crushing hike-and-fly races around the world, he runs paragliding clinics at the X-Alps training academy.
In this short video, Maurer takes us along for a weekend of flight training in the southern Swiss Alps. Don’t expect some polished film or curated score; that’s not Chrigel’s style. It’s just sweet, unadulterated GoPro footage from a guy who does some epic stuff extremely well.
Buckle up, hang on, and enjoy the ride.
