The Exit - Wanaka, Southern Alps, New Zealand

Jamie Lee launches with a touch of finesse from Treble Cone, Wanaka. This was one of my first days in the place that I called home for two summers, and this view explains some of the reasons why I got happily stuck here. It's the closest thing to a paragliding mecca that New Zealand's weather will allow, and when the weather doesn't let you go flying, it's a blessing disguise, as there is so much else to do in this special part of the world. The title is a nod to how this specific flight discipline - speed flying - sits somewhere in the spectrum of free flight disciplines, ranging from full-size paragliders, to base jumping and wing-suiting. What paragliders call a launch, base jumpers call an exit.
