Get the best tool for developing ground control
Drag racing is dangerous!
Ground-handling is the most important foundational skill for progressing safely through the sport, but paragliders generate a lot of power. How can you learn the right techniques when you're scared and fighting for traction?
The solution is simple
Use a wing designed for ground training
The story behind the PLAY
Developed in South Africa by paragliding legend Pete Wallenda and the instructors at Wallend-Air, it has been refined over years of testing in strong wind. Ground-handling adds a lot of wear and tear to a normal paraglider. The PLAY is durable, compact, and depowered, so you can learn all aspects of ground-handling in a much wider range of conditions (and have fun) without damaging full size equipment.
There's nothing like it! Being smaller, and less aggressive than other trainers, combined with the super stable leading edge, makes it so easy to get started. You'll get the feeling of a lot more airtime, which can accelerate your learning curve ... and keep you current!
