justACRO.com, the acro paragliding portal serves as the main website of acrobatic paraglider pilots. Large collection of videos, forum, second hand market, acro trick descriptions, glider and harness database, startplace catalog and more.
360 Cameras are a big gamechanger when it comes to onboard Acroparagliding footage. Back in the days the pilots used huge fisheyes on their MiniDV cams or Lipstickcameras with complicated cablechannels through their equipment. Just to get these rare onboardfootage - and the best would be if you could see the whole action with pilot and glider.
The possibilities with 360 seem now endless. From followcam to a psycodelic trip - you can creat everything.

Théo won the last acro competition of 2018, the Master Acro in La Reunion island. Followed on the podium by countryman Francois Ragolski. Andres 'Pepe' Villamizar and Eliot Nochez both shared the third place.
It is fair enough to say that Théo de Blic (FRA) is nowadays most skilled and trained acro pilot. He is impressing everybody with his motivation, technical skills, perfectly clean maneuvers, creativity and by delivering new tricks to the scene. He was also one of the very few pilots who pushed the sport to the next level by performing highly technical maneuvers twisted for the first time, setting the new standards for new-school aerobatics. As it feels like that the apex of this evolution if nearing, some old ideas started to emerge in the scene again and a rather crazy experiment began to take place. After David Thibodeau (CAN) opened up a conversation on Facebook about the Full Stall to Infinity, Egor Posokhin (RUS) did not waste time and went out to try it. The videos Egor posted made Théo go on a mission to Lake Garda to see if he could do it! Guess what, the legends of a new connection became reality! Click to read the full of the birth of a new maneuver: Superstall to Infinite!
Théo reports from Monaco: "After being many times 2nd and 3rd I finally managed to grab the French Acro Champion title today".
Théo took the titel with a solid 6 points advantage in front of Eliot Nochez. The pilots completed 4 runs over the weekend. Acro Game champion Tim Alongi and World Champion Francois Ragolski were not participating.
