For many, Philippe Broers is the face of the Paragliding World Cup. His daily videos from the comps combine epic flying images with in-flight commentary that reveal the racing strategies.

In Cross Country 155 (Sept/Oct 2014) the Belgian showman talks to Andy Pag about the gear he uses to film the fastest pilots in the world:

Read Philippe’s full interview in issue 155, Sept/October 2014.
