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.

“To keep going you have to think about not landing. In the Rockies Traverse, we flew for hours with nowhere to land … unless you count the lake or the river.”

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