The Man who Touch the Sky – Kitesurfer Jumps Brighton Pier the Full Movie

A documentary featuring the full story of the kitesurfer who jumped Brighton pier is now available to watch on youtube!

Summary: The Man that touched the sky is an in depth look at the pioneering kite jumping extraordinaire Lewis Crathern preparing for the biggest jump of his life over Brighton Pier, an exclusive look behind the scenes into Lewis’ life, showing never seen before footage with him preparing for his infamous jump months before it happened. The documentary touches on the emotions, physical strength training, precision weather monitoring and pure skill to achieve such a dramatic result.

Paramania Video Series : Maillon Check Tighten and Load Test

 

 

 

 

Paramania designers and manufacture of popular wings such as the Fusion and Revo2 where they use larger than average maillons that are 3.5mm thick stainless steel with a breaking strain of 1200kg. Here we have a couple of videos to demonstrate their fitting and strength.

Load dispersion “A paraglider consisting of 8 maillons, 4 each side. With an 80kg pilot equals to 10kg per maillon. At 8g’s force that is 80kg per maillon. At full fast trim using mainly a & b risers at 8g that is still only 160kg each.”

Watch this video demonstrating a load test and the breaking strain of a Paramania maillon.

 

This video demonstrating the correct method of checking and tightening your maillons.
