Nice Glenn .....

When I asked about gliders on floats over on the other JJB site, JJB posted a fun video that he should now include here.

Jasons video is a guy on Snow Skis with a paraglider type chute / wing. A little too far out for me, even if I was a better skier.

I hope they don't get a really bad itch or something while doing that! Might cause a sudden loss of lift!

Nope, I was not that adventurous as a kid. Off the roof of our club house (maybe 8 feet) was as far as I went and that was after taking about 20 minutes to get up the nerve.

Make sure your battery is charged when you film yourself doing this! :monkey: My blood pressure shot up just watching this.
