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

  • 16.12.2017 Another North Island hundy in the books

    Shaun Gilbert has pulled out another North Island 100+km flight from Te Mata Peak.

    To our knowledge, Shaun is the only pilot to have flown over 100km in the North Island, always in Hawkes Bay. Congratulations Shaun, very inspiring.

    Who's up for trying to get more pilots into this exclusive club this season?

  • 16.11.2017 Southern Club is killing it - Auckland humiliated

    Huge flights by Bryan Moore and Michal Karnik, among others, have lead to the Southern Club having more points in the competition than all other clubs put together.

    Auckland, smug at the start of the season, have fallen to the bottom.

  • 03.09.2017 Thank you, Jakub Havel
