Paragliding in San Francisco
Paragliding offers tandem paragliding flights in a handful of scenic locations across the bay area. There are no engines and no tow line involved. We use the power of mother nature to keep us flying from anywhere between 10 and thousands of feet above the ground. You will be paired up with a certified tandem instructor and every flight doubles as a brief flight lesson.
There are few activities in the world that compare to the convenient and peaceful experience of paragliding. The process, friendships that develop and love for the sport can be life changing. Pilots have now reached incredible distances of 300 miles in this craft that can be carried in a backpack. The harnesses that we fly in can be reversed into a backpack and the wing can be placed inside. This whole package will fit in an airplane carry-on area, so this works so well with travel. Whether you enjoy just driving accessible launches or hiking up to remote mountain peaks, paragliding supplies the answers.
