In Hugo's paragliding bag

If you saw my profile , you could see that I am not used to long distance flights.

Indeed, my favorite discipline in paragliding is aerobatics (consists of turning my head upside down with my paraglider).

Fit for a Ninja Turtle


It is a small instrument characterized by its beep-beep when I climb into the thermals (hot air mass that allows us to climb).

This instrument is mainly used by paragliders who do distance flying.

Bottle of water,

I try to drink and take breaks during my training even though it's not easy when you're passionate and the conditions are perfect, but tendinitis happens very quickly.

Tips to avoid getting bored


My paraglider is a sail designed differently from others, it is more energetic, smaller than normal and it can withstand strong centrifugal forces.

I mainly use it to perform tricks, but also to play on the ground or by the sea like in Australia.


The harness is the “bag” in which I sit.

It was designed especially for aerobatics. It can hold two spare parts and is equipped with a large foam cushion to absorb shock if I were to impact upon landing.


The weather obviously influences my choice of clothing. Generally, I fly when the weather is nice, but up there you lose degrees quickly.

Also, I take with me shorts and pants and I choose at takeoff the one that will be the most optimal during my flights. I also have a sweater, a buff, a cap and a jacket.
All these clothes must offer me the greatest comfort and allow me a great range of movement to facilitate the performance of acrobatic figures.

I find all these quality criteria in the range of clothing from Looking for Wild, of course.

Accessories not so accessories!

Rescue x2 

In acro I have two aids, they simply serve to save my life if necessary.

They are folded in a very precise way and hung on a hooked handle on the harness.

In my harness, I therefore have two types of aid.
The main one is a “rogallo”, it has the advantage of being dirigible, of having a low sink rate but also of rapid opening. On the other hand, it has the disadvantage of sometimes being able to open "twisted", that is to say that the straps which attach me to it will be upside down and I will not be able to direct it or will not be able to direct it correctly. It is also more expensive than normal relief.

The second aid or plan B serves to give me an additional chance of surviving if the first does not open. It is round, it is the most common aid in the world of paragliding, it has the advantage of being less expensive and just as effective, on the other hand it will decide where I land.

Repair kit

For my trip to Australia, I created a small repair kit with fabric needles and lines to make a repair on the spot.


Obviously, the helmet is above all essential for safety. My helmet also serves as a support for my Gopro camera.

For the pleasure of the eyes but not only!


My Gopro camera and my pole are always in my harness. I mainly use it to film all my workouts. It's about having the visual of all my training moments for the video debriefing that I automatically carry out after each session.

The second function is to take you with me when I create beautiful images in flight.
