In an unexpected twist to our schedule we’re filming our next episode of Extreme Wales ahead of the planned date. It’s all down to the weather, we’re following Richard as he learns to Paramotor, a sport that can only take place in very specific conditions. The weather looked perfect this week to get Richard fully up to speed with all things paramotoring, so we managed to get our team to this training centre in Skenfrith and begin filming the training.
Richard will have to master the parachute first and then move on to the motor itself, the learning curve will be steep but we’re sure he can get through the intensive course intact. He’s starting by jumping down a giant hill, so we’ll sit with our fingers crossed.
