Los Angeles: 30-Minute Tandem Paragliding Experience

1. Los Angeles: 30-Minute Tandem Paragliding Experience

Paraglide for up to 30 minutes with an instructor on this paragliding flight from Malibu. Fly confidently with top-of-the-line safety gear that is maintained to the highest safety standards. Soar over sandy beaches and the Pacific Ocean.  Meet your guide and get set up with your equipment. Listen to a safety briefing before taking off with your instructor. Take off from the beach or the 3,000-foot mountain top. This involves running a few steps, usually under 20. Admire breathtaking views and keep an eye out for whales, dolphins, rays, sharks, deer, mountain lions, hawks, and vultures. Ride thermals with hawks and vultures and experience the thrill of spiraling down over the Pacific Ocean.  Make an easy landing by stretching your legs and leaning forward as you touch down on the soft sandy beach. The tandem paragliding flight is very gentle but adventurous.

It was a very exciting journey in the sky. I give credit to Claude who is a well experienced paraglider. I have paragliding in my bucket list and I just did it on my birthday, Yey! Claude gives points for safety measures from start to finish. I also thank his friends, great respect to all of you guys! Paragliding is one way to distress! Get your reservations now!
