I started gliding four years ago. I've used Condor extensively for training, which has resulted in a fast learning curve. Won Norwegian sports class nationals in 2012. Became part owner of a Discus bT later that year, and since then have travelled around in Norway to do cross country flying, particularly in mountain terrain, and in 2013 did the most total km on OLC Norway. I like to document my flights with photos and videos. Videos can be seen at my YoutTube channel.

Four Days in May

The first four days of May had some spectacularly good soaring weather in Norway. I spent the days at Notodden, where the longest flights in Norway were flown. One of the days four of the five longest flights in the world were flown by us!

[Video] Soaring the Mountains of Norway

I would like to share with you a spectacular HD soaring video from the Norwegian mountains last week. The video was made at the autumn soaring camp at Bjorli, Norway. Even though the great wave conditions we were hoping for never materialized, it was soarable every day the entire week, with some good thermals most days, and ridge lift and weak wave the other days.

[Video] Wave Soaring from a Frozen Lake

Here is a soaring video which shows something a little different, which might interest you and your readers—wave soaring from a frozen lake in the Norwegian mountains! This is from the 2013 Vågå wavecamp which was held this week (http://www.wavecamp.no/). Even if spring is approaching fast, isn’t it interesting to see that great flights can be had in winter, even in the far north of Norway? :-)”
