The 10th Paragliding World Cup Super Final will take place in Baixo Guandu, Brazil from the 19th to the 30th of March 2019.
Baixo Guandu is a favourite destination for the Paragliding World Cup, with its stunning black granite dome mountains and testing tasks in the land of record-breaking skies.
This will be the World Cup’s fourth visit to Baixo Guandu (previous comps were in 2013, 2015, 2018). The World Cup has also been to nearby Castelo four times which has very similar topography (2006, 2008, 2012 and 2016). Proof, if it were needed, that the state of Espírito Santo, in south-eastern Brazil, with its Jurassic Park landscape, monster bamboo and pilot high grass, is a Paragliding mecca. It also means that there are a lot of pilots in this 10th celebratory Super Final who are very experienced in flying these unusual monolithic black blocks.
