a visual journey
Follow along with us as adventurers take to the skies for the first time on a tandem, learn valuable paragliding skills or even catch a glimpse of pilots just goofing around!
Part of the fun of flying (ok, most of the fun) is flying in thermals. The best part of flying with friends is that you don't have to find them all yourself. Here I am in shark mode about to head over and join an established thermal. On a great day of flying (like this was) everyone gets a chance to find them and be "top of the stack"!
Saturday was an epic flying day, but of course I forgot to turn on my GoPro so no pictures. Sunday was forecast to be similar, and it was like a class reunion with over 20 pilots coming out to fly at Bridal Falls (which is a lot for our area!). We heard others on the radio across the valley flying at Woodside too. And even though the conditions weren't as nice as Saturday, it was still fun to fly with friends again and get back to exploring this lovely area.
For some, the Easter long weekend means time off to relax. For me, it's been a non-stop weekend of awesomeness (aka paragliding work). First an exciting tandem job involving flying a stills photographer for an ad campaign (I'll post pics and details as soon as they give the ok when the ads are released in about 6 weeks) and then on Sunday a perfect kiting day for teaching one of my latest students. We went to the "bunny" hill and although we didn't find any chocolate, we did run around and laugh just as much as the kids hunting for goodies from the Easter Bunny!
