paragliding winch incident, tow bridle blocked


Tow bridle got stuck because of the high tension in the towing line. After forcing the release handle, it fails and detach from the rest of the towing bridle system. I've managed finally to release the line after further forcing what was the release handle.

Wow - and you went back up again after this happened. You are a much braver person than I am. I hope you and your friends have all passed your CPR certification and first aid courses.

It must be amazing feeling and real rush to do this sort of stuff. The photos on this blog are amazing but being scared of heights I find it difficult enough to get in an airplane never mind do paragliding. Maybe one day........

Hi Sarah, flying is really amazing feeling as you have already guessed. "Flying is the most beautiful dream of humanity" is not just a cliche. I would say follow your dream if this is what you are feeling too. Don't let the fear of hight to put you back, it is normal to have this fear (only some people don't have it thought they are bereft of reason :)).
