Ten reasons to try paragliding.
As a guy who spends most of his time either sitting behind his computer or sitting on a commercial plane, paragliding offers an experience of complete freedom and pure joy that was lacking in my "gravity bound" life. If you have ever stood on a mountain, gazing out into a cobalt sky and dreamt of flying off into it — paragliding is a way to make that dream a reality.
I get more LIFE out of 1 minute of flight time than I do all the other minutes of the week added together. It’s like being Clark Kent during the week, and Superman on the weekends — only my cape is so big I have to carry it in a backpack (and yes, it’s red).
Gravity is more than force of nature — it is a test of courage and imagination. Paragliding is a beautiful answer.
I have always had reoccurring dreams of flying, and the experience of paragliding is almost identical to the sensation of flight I have in those dreams.
Have you ever been stuck in traffic, and looked with envy at the freedom of the birds in the sky? Paragliding is the way to be the bird.
I have always loved hiking in the gorgeous mountains of Colorado. In fact, the only thing I love MORE is flying off them.
It’s like LIVING the Pink Floyd song "Learning to Fly."
Planes are loud, bumpy, and have a terrible carbon footprint. The paraglider is a more elegant form of flight — utterly peaceful, and totally green.
Paragliding is the least costly form of aviation; you can get all the lessons and gear you need for about the same amount of $$$ you’d spend on a weeklong vacation in Europe
The desire to fly is innate for most people — almost everyone has had a dream of flying. Quit dreaming it and start LIVING it – go paragliding.
