  Personal : Me starting paragliding was only pure luck for my part. I was always dreaming of hanggliding, beeing brought up by a hanggliding father who started flying long time before my birth. We travelled all over the country to different competitions and meetings. Until 1994 when he stopped being an active pilot. After that I wanted som mutch be fly myself, but I didn't have the money before 2000. I looked all over Norway for a hangglider course, but no sigar. In the end I joined a paraglider course in despare. Later I found out this was not such a bad idea.
But my original dream of flying hangglider never dissapared, and in 2002 I joined a conversion course and are now flying both types of gliders.

In the beginning of my paraglider carrier I flew cross-country as everybody else, but when acro-paragliding started in Norway I relly felt that this was the real me. Nowdays acro-paragliding is 95% of my flying.
 

 
  This season (2005) : Starting off in Bregenzerwald Cup where downteam will have an airshow in January, I will continue with all the Norwgian Cups Acro and off coarse I plan to fly all the World Tour competitions.
