I put up our paragliding pictures.
It was very, very much fun.
Nothing quite like running off the side of a mountain under a really big kite, and then flying a few hundred feet in the air for 5-10 minutes with no sound but the wind rushing by your ears.

Then you do a spiraling descent of doom!
Makes roller-coasters seem like a gentle kiddie ride.

Much fun, and I fully plan to do it again.

on with the pictures!

yeah, Hawaii.
It's very different from skydiving, it's more like hanggliding except with a flexible wing instead of a rigid one.

Very cool!
I'm imaging the landing spiral and can feel the excitement and adrenaline from here.
What's with the 'big-butt backpack' though? Emergency 'chute or simply harness?

emergency 'chute, and a seat for when you're flying. Works like a chair basically.

So if the 'chute's is affixed to your bum and you have to pull the ripcord then you float lazily down to earth - headfirst?
Nah, can't possibly work that way! ;-)

Gotta love a sport that comes with it's own chair, though!
