Notes from a masterclass: Gavin McClurg on mountain flying

Gavin McClurg Cloudbase Mayhem and paragliding

“The mental side of things is super important. As soon as you think ‘I might land’ you probably will.

Gavin McClurg shares his hard-learned lessons from a lifetime of pioneering paragliding.
