About web admin: I am Australian began paragliding whilst living in Europe 2000. I went full time 2007. After training at Blitz/Boom reserve manufactures I began working for  Pro-Design paragliders running there mobile test centre MTC for paragliding schools, events & Testivals. I am blessed with insider knowledge of the paragliding manufacturing industry a big thanks to Herbert Hofbauer, Pier and Pepi Gastieger Parashop Kössen also to Leoni and Jarda Herman FlyPark Spain Almūnecar

Coming back to Australia 2014 I’ve motivated service and repair centres to heighten practices closer to what we see in Europe.

2016 - BGD mostly unknown in Australia. With Bruce and Arna Goldsmiths encouragement, I took on distribution and brought BGD Australia wide. 

2017 - With U-turns support I continue Acro Training 

U-Turns higher safety aspect has heightened my desire for Acro again. We are seeing more and more Australian acro pilots do a U-Turn for 

Further thanks also to My coach Lee Tryhorn and my Acro mentor Michael Maldoon.


2018 - Dedication to advance skills via skydiving.

Proper equiptment allows Acro to be practiced with heighten safety over ground. Learning to Skydive is the best way to gain knowledge and experience on howto fly, landand pack our Acro Base canopy’s reserves safely and have a whole lot of fun. Utube - testing the Acro Base system. 

With 2018 coming to a close, I have further plans 2019. Interestingly I was one who always said - I can’t do acro, I get sick. But look at my latest video here. I overcame it! Now my next video project comes to mind. 

 2019 - Wow this new year began with many new and incredible experiences. One of which I was able to train ACRO in "Australia." in keeping development of acro in the foreground.

What in the world 2020 

Wow! Who’d of thought. What a crazy time we are living in. Something totally new to all of us. 

First paragliding STOP for all pilots in lockdown, and back injury much pain and suffering for months. But after 3 full medicated months I try something different and hay! THC is a healer overnight what a big change, I begin to heal! Longing to fly goes without saying. 

2021 I'm back paragliding again!

Well honestly I feel so much gratitude. Something I never though again to be possible. Feeling so lucky to be back in the air and doing some Acro again. What joy! Located now in Australia Laurieton with Thermal mountain launches and beach sites all close by. Lov it. Thats the life, live it anyway you can the paths will become available to you. Maybe not quite as you imagined but close. 😉
