Re: Any paragliding pilots around here?

I took a tandem paragliding ride at the Torrey Pines Gliderport (near San Diego, CA, US) and it was fun and seemed pretty safe with the strong wind coming in off the ocean and hitting the cliffs and going straight up. It was a beautiful view along the coast.

It was a great way to experience PG.

Their web site looks fine at: https://www.northkiteboarding.com

Re: Nobile Infinity Split foil or Split surf board for waves

Toby - Do you ever decide to take down a thread that could damage a company’s sales? If so, now might be a good time.

Re: Any paragliding pilots around here?

I read a book a couple of years ago about a guy that learned to fly a PPG, and he said he made the mistake of first taking PG lessons and it was a waste of time and money since learning the foot-launched PPG was so different than PG. He said it was better to start out taking PPG lessons. There was a...

I wish the title were different. Kind of hate seeing companies’ sales possibly hurt, if it isn’t deserved.
