Southeasterly perfect for paraglider
Pilot Paul Copland, of Dunedin, makes the most of a rare southeasterly breeze to fly his paraglider between St Kilda and St Clair beaches in Dunedin.
Mr Copland, who has flown paragliders for 25 years, said the wind only blew in that particular direction about 10 days a year. Flying low over the sand dunes gave a great sense of speed and if you got too close the sand made for a softer landing.
After completing his flight he packed the parachute into his boot in time to collect his children from school.
