NATIONAL RED BULL FLUGTAG: MIAMI

Over the weekend we also made sure to check out the first ever national Red Bull flugtag while we explored downtown Miami. It didn't help that the weather was 90+ degrees surrounded by giant crowds and no shady areas in site. But the people watching and massive glider fails made it all worth it. If you don't know much about flugtag, teams create self-constructed gliders with one pilot steering as they launch starting 30 feet in the air and try and get the furthest distance over water. Funniest thing ever! The winning team this year actually happened in Long Beach, California when they ended up breaking the world record and flew 258 feet. Definitely wishing I could have seen that one! Below are some of my snapshots I was able to get in Miami through the crowds sweaty raised arms.
