Nέος τρόπος για να βγάζουμε τις Παραπεντίστικες ''Γραβάτες''!

 Και βέβαια για τους μη μυημένους να πουμε ότι η ''γραβάτα'' στο παραπέντε είναι το μπέρδεμα του ακροπτερυγίου ανάμεσα στα σχοινάκια. Τόσο δύσκολο έως αδύνατο να το επαναφέρεις μερικές φορές με τις συνηθισμένες τεχνικές.. 

Task 4 of the 2013 Monarca Open in Valle de Bravo, MX. We had just started the task and were doing the obligatory out and return to Divisa. At some point I noticed Nick had a small crevatte that just wouldn't pop out. I watched him try pulling his outer A line, pumping the brake, nothing seemed to get it out. If it was me I would have wanted a buddy to try and grab it but I wasn't sure if Nick was down. I happened to end up right next to him and yelled at him, sure enough he was game.
We were not exactly high up and the air was a bit bumpy. Luckily we managed to coordinate our flying just long enough for me to grab his trailing edge and pull it up. His outermost brake cascade line snapped when I pulled it but the wing returned to it's original shape and he had one less worry for the race ahead.
Good fun. Nice job on the task too Nick! He pulled ahead of me at the end even though we were both racing to goal on full bar. He was higher which put him a bit out of the lake 'valley' winds. Higher usually wins!
