This summer a brand new flying show and social event for the paragliding and paramotoring community is hitting the UK calendar.

Situated in a picturesque country-central location and in the landing fields of the popular paragliding site Llangollen, North Wales will be Parafest 2015.

The camp and showground are at the base of Llangollen hill and there are plenty of other free-flying sites in the surrounding area that are within easy driving distance. We also have a flying field for paramotors and plenty of unrestricted airspace.

With paramotor and paragliding trader’s and schools exhibiting, a market area, kids zone, chainsaw carving, other sideshow attractions, caterers, all- weekend camping and a bar with live music in the marquee on Friday and Saturday nights Parafest 2015 will be a weekend to remember whatever the weather.

World First BMX Triple Backflip – Jed Mildon May 28, 2011 – Video

New Zealand BMXer Jed Mildon has created action-sports history today by landing the world’s first Triple Backflip at the Unit T3 Mindtricks BMX Jam in Taupo, New Zealand.

Mildon, 24, stomped the three rotations perfectly during the free-to-the-public BMX show in his home-town.

A representative of the Guinness Book Of World Records was on hand to witness and approve the ground-breaking trick that is sure to send shockwaves through the two-wheeled action-sports industry.

“This is the perfect result to three intensive months of practising and training for this moment,” said a thrilled Mildon.

“The impact and implications hasn’t sunken in yet, but I’m so pumped to have aimed for something once deemed impossible and made my dream a reality.”

“Landing with both wheels on the downramp was the most amazing feeling in the world!”

The Unit T3 Mindtricks BMX Jam in Taupo was held at a public recreational park, with Mildon carving an 20m (66ft) high super-ramp into a hillside that flowed through a 3.6m (11ft) high super-kicker to Jed’s purpose-built Mega-Megabox landing.

Unit founder Paul Everest congratulated Mildon on his amazing feat.

“Jed has proven himself to be one of the world’s best BMX riders and we salute him for having both the drive and ability to change the face of action-sports.

“He has shown the world what is possible if you take your dream and single-mindedly chase your goals without being distracted or listen to the critics and naysayers.”

The Unit T3 Mindtricks BMX Jam was made possible with the help of Unit, Bikefest and Taupo District Council, MB Century, McDonald’s Taupo, theairbag.co.nz, foampit.co.nz and Pilgrim Bike Co
