A 90L lightweight rucksack designed to carry all your light equipment (paraglider, harness, rescue system, helmet...). Not just for ultra-light gliders, you can easily pack your normal wing with a light harness etc. Provision has also been made for carrying mountaineering equipment, in and on the rucksack.
90L main compartment
2 front zip pockets
one side mesh pocket
gear loop on belt
ergonomic 3D mesh back contact with ventilation system
The Yeti alpine bag is based on the rucksac designed with GIN Team pilot Aaron Durogati for the Red Bull X-Alps race. Over 500g lighter than its predecessor and with 10L more volume, the Yeti Alpine backpack is ideal for hike and fly.
> Ergonomic 3D mesh back contact, hip and shoulder straps
Thank you to Mike for guiding / kicking us through this process. The bottomline is that all our operations are great and we have always put a lot of thought and care into our safety and processes.
Now it is well documented and certified as well!
This winter, we put our thinking caps on again, to figure out how we can improve our school, our service, the quality of teaching and your learning experience. One often mentioned issue is that students wonder how they are tracking on their mission to achieve PG2. Many of our talented students are quite goal focussed and eager to achieve what's needed. While bearing in mind where we need to slow people down and where we want them to sharpen up, we want to help you to achieve your goals soon.
We offer to run a XC course in Wanaka prior to the Nationals in January 2015. The course will be 6 days, 24 - 29 January. This can be your warm up to the competition, familiarising yourself with the are and the local conditions, fly to a couple of turnpoints every day, learn to read the local weather, learn to make the most out of your instruments and perfect your thermalling and transition techniques.
WOFs are compulsory in NZ and give you a good chance to check out your equipment early in the season. We are also doing a sausage sizzle, so bring some drinks (and food if you would like anything other than the club sausages) to catch up with everyone else. Any excuse for a little party....
Feels like spring - we are keen to start teaching again: On 1 September we officially start again with new paragliding courses, kitesurfing and paramotoring. A bunch of you have already signed up and are sorted with new gear.
