Winter time is also ground handling time. But most of all with white sand, blue sea and Mexican dance music. William Hung Vo shows how it works. High above: Not for beginners, but maybe an incentive? // Source: Youtube, screenshot If you still need inspiration for ground handling training, you can watch the following video by William Hung Vo. Shot on a beach in Western Australia, William shows how much fun you can have on the ground with the glider on the ground. However, it should also be noted that in order to perform the various tricks so elegantly and with a certain ease, one must already have invested a lot of time in the basics. It does not matter if you will ever get there. Intensive ground handling is essential for advancing one's own flying skills, for intuitively responding and reacting to the movements of the glider. In addition, it offers the advantage: even on really unfliegbaren days you can so a little more, and sometimes something in the air. By the way, if you want to know why this post has the title "My Style of Kissing", you should watch the movie to the end. The video can be seen on Youtube.
