For more information see www.acrobatics-book.com
If you've any interest in the growing art of paraglider acro, you need a copy of Acrobatics in your life.
This is a ground-breaking book. Written, photographed and produced by the German team of Gudrun Öchsl, Mike Küng, Alexander Meschuh and Michael Nesler, Acrobatics is a 156 page visual extravaganza that tackles acro instruction head on.
Colourfully designed with inspirational images, Acrobatics gives you clear and concise instructions and takes you step-by-step through each manoeuvre using both written descriptions and motor driven photo sequences.
Starting with the basics like Wing-Overs and Full Stalls, the book progresses through every conceivable manoeuvre to the most difficult configurations like the MacTwist and Infinite Tumble. Once you've mastered those (!) you can move on to the sections on transitions - Helico to SAT, MacTwist to Helico etc. Theoretically, by the time you've finished Acrobatics you should have all the information you need to take the Rodriguez brothers on head-to-head at an acro comp - provided that is you're an acro genius too. Acrobatics even discusses topics like training plans, sources of error, psychology, D-Bagging and your legal position as an acro pilot.
Acrobatics is a must for all budding acro pilots and anyone serious about understanding this exciting offshoot of free flight. That said should find a place on almost every pilot's coffee table, if only so they can pass it round to visitors and say, "you want to see what they do with these things nowadays!"
