our club is situated in capital city of Slovakia what is small country in the middle of Europe.
We did small recap of the year 2015. Most of us are just beginners and that year was our first season with pilot license Razz
I hope you will enjoy ;)

I still remember the Europeans we had I think in 1998 in the Podbrezova/Brezno valley. Great to see you guys hang gliding there.
I remember we only had one flight from the higher tatris launching near that big transmitter. Sometimes we were using some quite shallow low launches and were thankful to manage to climb!

When we were there it was a remarkably cheap place for us. I am guessing that has changed now though!

Beautiful country. Except maybe that big heap of scrap steel near the steelworks that was a usual thermal source!

But perhaps the most amazing thing about your country is in the entire time we were there we didn't see a single young woman that was not beautiful Smile

Great flying and video, looks like some top sites you have there. Good choice on the sound track , "Thunderstruck" by the Australian hard rock band, AC/DC.

I've been off few months so I need to practice little bit.
Wind was 0-1.5ms (0-2.9knot) and this training hill is no so steep so i must run longer.

Rebro,

These guys know how to LAUNCH !! Cool

They make very strong launches. They are very smooth, so the glider does not dip or rise as the feet leave the Earth. It tells me that your instructors there are very good. One launch near the end of the video was weak, but he escaped unharmed. Laughing He needs to improve on that skill, but I think he knows that already.

You have nice landing fields there. Your video is very good to see here. Thank you.

We have a lot of snow now, where I live. I am waiting, and Spring is almost here!

Mr. Green

Ahoj Red,

tnx for watching. That guy with weak start.. well... in the past he was instructor and now he join us only once or twice per year. He have own style. We call it "scorpion style" Smile
Strong starts are necessary even when you have trees at the end and wind direction is not stable.
