A World of Colour is a display of an amazing selection of the stars and starlets of paragliding while they battle for a place on the podium of the highest-level paragliding competition series, the Paragliding World Cup (PWC). The video was shot in September 2017 at Pico Do Gaviao, Brazil, where 7 tasks were flown in 7 days and Brazilian pilots swept off the first places.
