    Nick also sponsors the annual spot prize which, since the season has now ended, is in the process of being awarded (update to follow).

    The 2017/18 season officially ended yesterday but we allow a bit more time for some last straggler flights to come in before we announce Nick Neynens as the winner.

    Once again - thanks so much to Macpara NZ for their continued support and general generosity across the NZ Paragliding landscape.

  • 18.02.2018 Only 6 weekends to go

    The season will end on the 31st of March. Current NZ XC-Champion and X-Alps legend, Nick Neynens, is still in the lead with his monster triangles and it will take something enormous by Glen Stevens to catch him up.

    NZ Paragliding Champion, Louis Tapper, and James Bond lookalike, Bryan Moore are neck-in-neck for third place and are both still cranking out enormous voyages in the Southern Alps as they chase the elusive 200km FAI triangle.

    Nick has logged the best flight of the season, a 190.65km FAI triangle, which scored 381.3 pts.
