  • Slope Videos

    Len asked me a while back to add some color to the forum. I'm trying, but all I seem to do is post up geeky scale documentation information and data—I need a vacation!

    How's this for a change? Post up your favorite slope video, here's one to kick it off.
    Cheers, Thompson

        very cool....I flew many slopes growing up...wish I could find some in New England area now...will keep looking around... a few google tips in mid and Eastern Ma I need to check out....I think the Boston good one at Deer Island had the plug pulled by the state agency....I think? and the Cape is tough in the summer with parking and beach dune erosion issues

                Wow, that dude chucks an $8,000 dollar glider (probably more $$) of the side of the cliff. No motor, 100% commitment. I don't know if i could do that with a $100 plane LOL. Awesome flying and scenery where do you think they land?
                I like this one, old but good. Weird music

                  some awesome videos there! Did he scrape the tail on the rocks with the arcus on take off on the super high mountain one? Love the tandem flying too, Rock on! ...need to find some decent NE slopes!!

                  I'm out in Los Angeles this week....these have inspired me to seek out Torrey Pines or something around here just to check out live!

                        And Here is my Cirrus and its Fisrt visit to the slope, I had a couple flights the day before and had much better conditions I underestimated the lack of lift on this occasion, woops

                          Cool video Alexis.
                          I imagine when the lift is booming that must be quite a place to fly. Better than a hard drop off!!

                            It is a really amazing slope with lift that when the direction is square on will go out further than you can see, and then like we had Tuesday where the wind wasn't strong but the thermals were so you just made sure you launched when it was good and made sure you had enough height to get you through the lulls between thermals, there are a few sites along this stretch of coastline too so it's almost always worth the drive
