Denis Verchere's HG base jumps

Worth a watch, starts at 2,11 ish

Running our Alpine paragliding courses In the mid 90's I had the pleasure of working along side Deni and Matty (Mathieu Rouanet). Both were gifted and totally fearless pilots and went on to bigger and better things.
It was the beginning/early days of Acro, and the best wings of the time were small and extra small comp wings. Deni's style was full on and quite wild and he destroyed lots of gliders whilst pushing for bigger tricks.
Consequently he was employed as a DHV test pilot being part of a research project looking into line loading, I will try and find that video some time.
