PULL  UP

Align your wing perpendicular to the wind. Grab your A's and pull.

The wing will come up above you.

How fast depends on how big your wing is, how much wind and how hard you pull.

Success: up 3x in a row

 

ANDRE BANDARRA

Wing: BGD | Seed | 14m2

Wind: 30 km/h | strong turbulence | no lift

Very strong winds and strong turbulence.

 

GREG HAMERTON

Wing: Nova | Mentor 5 | 26m2

Wind: 25 km/h | mild turbulence | strong lift

Textbook pull up in strong winds.

 

 

ROB MANSLEY

Wing: Ozone | Mojo 5 | 26m2

Wind: 15km/h | no turbulence | no lift

Great demonstration on how to pull the wing up.

 

CHRIS ROGERS

Wing: AirDesign |  | 24m2

Wind: 15km/h | no turbulence | no lift

Good demonstration of controlled Pull up.

 

MARK MITSOS

Wing: Gin | Bobcat | 16m2

Wind: 30+km/h | no turbulence | no lift

This technique was developed for all reverse launch conditions. It can be done in light winds as well as strong winds.

 

ROBERT GRUBBA

Wing: UP | Katenga XC | 29m2

Wind: 25km/h | no turbulence | mild lift

This technique was developed for all reverse launch conditions. It can be done in light winds as well as strong winds.

 

SIMON WINKLER

Wing: Gradien | Golden 4 | 24m2

Wind: 15km/h | mild turbulence | mild lift

One of many basic reverse launch techniques. Basic technique for a good progression to many other pull up techniques.
