Friday Freakout: Ground Launch Fail

Here’s a lesson in ground launching. Step 1: Don’t do this! Step 2: See step 1. Clearly not the best way to start off a day of speedflying, but despite the minor crash he still managed to brush himself off and squeeze out a few good flights for the rest of the session. Of all the ground launching fails, I’d have to say the paraglider who cheated death in Moab is scariest I’ve ever seen.
