I got this off another forum and it looks interesting. The one thing that bothers me is I dont see any kind of harness, it appears you just hang off the wing by your hands. Normally that is no problem, but what if you slip????

Well, it doesn't seem like it's really prolonging the flight of those..
They just jump and hang a little bit to the wing.

I guess the idea of it is more something like getting a tool to use wind as propulsion, like a sailboat.

Yeah, it doesn't look like they're getting really big air with it. Except, of course, the guys who kinda glide all the way down the ski slope. That was pretty cool, but why not just hang up your skiis and get a hang glider?
