Paraglider flips a record 568 times in a single skydive
- About this Video
- On the odd chance that the Mayans had indeed predicted the end of the world, paraglider Horacio Llorens decided to go for broke and take back the Infinity Tumbling World Record before the lights went out.
Infinity tumbling is the most difficult aerobatic paragliding maneuver to perform, with the pilot flipping over the vertical line of the paraglide sail in consecutive loops. Llorens flew up to 19,300 feet before jumping from a helicopter, opening his paraglider and looping for around 15 minutes, hitting an incredible 568 rotations -- breaking the previous record by 194 loops.
