Speed riding, freeride in 3 rd dimension

Speed riding is a new discipline stemming from the meeting of freestyle paragliding, freeride, snow kite and free fall.

Its simplicity of learning returns fast the activity opened to a very wide public.

No need to have some experiment of paragliding, only a good skiing level (all snow / off piste) will be necessary for the practice of Speedriding. Indeed, this activity is practiced on snow only, and consists in riding along a off pist slope, equiped with a small wing, easy to pilot.


The objective is not to get height and for a long time, but to play with the relief as a skier would ; the charm thus is to go down slopes quickly by mixing the glide on snow and the gliding flight with touch and go. speed riding could also become speed kiting when the wind increases, you just play with your wing like with a snow kite, being pulled across and up the hill ... very exciting !! 

Since 2006, the practice of speedriding, at first marginal, was outlined, became refined, to reach an optimal level of security and maturity today.
