1. Our sport has grown and developed in ways that no one could have imagined just a few years ago. Everything that we love about free flight has evolved from the same roots, yet now we have the opportunity to engage in it through so many different avenues. ‘Inspired’ brings us into the lives of a few pilots – some you know, some you don’t – who have immersed themselves in the various forms of flight, personally and professionally. We visit each pilot in their home environment where they share with us their local playground, and the source of their inspiration. We vol-biv into the wild and roadless California Sierra under a 5000m cloudbase. We discover the origins of a world record holder’s life altering decision to make paragliding her sole focus. Speeding through the southern Alps provides a meditative release for one professional flier and another is intentionally homeless, circling the globe year after year. In the end we see that ‘paragliding’ is now so multi-faceted that one lifetime is barely enough to absorb all of the experiences it has to offer.
    Though the ways in which these pilots express their dedication is different, their underlying passion is similar, and it is unifying. As pilots, we share something that brings us together on a deeper level. We like to think that we are all equally inspired by nature, and driven by the elements.

  4. Shot on super 16mm, this short is about Doug Robinson who made the first clean ascent of the NW face of Half Dome in 1973 and wrote an essay entitled "The Whole Natural Art of Protection" which inspired a new way of climbing that didn't harm the rock walls.

    Here's the link to Doug's article in the 1972 Chouinard Catalog- climbaz.com/chouinard72/ch_page12.html
