Infinity Tumbling with passenger

The Infinity Tumbling is the most radical and the most spectacular trick that exists in paragliding. The pilot passes over the center of the wing over and over again, doing perfect loopings while having to stand out high G-forces up till 6-7 G! It was invented in 2005 by Raul Rodriguez (the inventor of most acro figures) but still, nowadays there are still just a few dozens of pilots in the world who were able to master this maneuver perfectly. On the 7th of August 2010 in Switzerland an old dream came true when Pál and Gábor presented the first ever Tandem Infinity Tumbling, flying together on a unique glider designed by U-Turn. The news-cuts of the World Premier were distributed all over the world and brought all together 113 hours of broadcasting time in televisions.

Lately (in October 2010) Pál made the first ever commercial Infinity tandem flights, sharing this extraordinary experience with passengers, some with no flying experience at all. You can be the NEXT!

Esfera – new acro maneuver

(Esfera is a spanish word that means „sphere”, „globe”, „ball”.)
At the time of the invention of the Infinity Tumbling maneuver (Raúl Rodriguez, 2005) a new vision was also born: if it's possible to build up a horizontally rotating SAT into a straight vertical movement (Rythmic-SAT to Infinity) it might be also possible to come back down into a SAT again to the other side! But how to do this "Anti-Rythmic" and work down the angle from Infinity without loosing all the energy in an anyway extremely sensitive maneuver?! In the past 5-6 years these thoughts and theory ran through the minds of all the world's top acro pilots.
After 1 year of testing and experimenting over water, on the 22nd of October 2010 in Ölüdeniz (Turkey) I managed the first ever successful execution of the "Anti-Rythmic" coming down to a SAT from Infinity. 2 days after the dream of "Esfera" came true - the complete maneuver that starts with a SAT and ends in a SAT but turning to the opposite direction, linked with the vertical Infinity in the middle: making a whole turn around the „sphere”!
