As I was driving by Cottesloe beach, I saw some acrobatic displays of slope soaring, so decide to stop by and check it out.

These guys are amazing. Using the updraft created by the onshore wind they can keep these slope soarers gliding and darting around effortlessly. A lot of skill is required though as the plane can easily be blown back across the road if the pilot isn’t careful.

These guys were showing off with some inverted flying, and were trying to take each other out with mid-air dog fights! Definitely another fun hobby to pick up, just need to find the time!
