The Kid Should See This

Moonline: Speed Riding at night over Bossons Glacier

With his wing lit by 20 meters of LED lights, French speed rider Valentin Delluc mixes freeskiing and paragliding over Bossons glacier near Chamonix, France. Flying with LEDs required seven months of training and test runs to make sure the aerodynamics of the wing wouldn’t be compromised, but Delluc makes the final 4am flight—shot in just one take down more than 1,500 vertical meters of glacier—look easy.
