Extreme Yet Serene

Yes, paragliding can be a little bit hairy. Yes, accidents happen. Yes, it’s still AWESOME! Yes, it’s off the beaten path for adventure.

Actually, if you’re going to try something like this, there is no safer place than the Torrey Pines flight park. The wind coming in from the ocean is nice and smooth, the instructors are competent and the┬ápark has been there for a long time. It can get a little crowded in the air but the traffic is well organized. Personally, I would take hang gliding over paragliding any day but paragliding seems to be all the rage these days. If you are interested in a little off the beaten path adventure, be it lessons or a quick tandem flight, this is the place to go.
