Paragliding – Tiger Mountain

This past weekend, I went paragliding for the first time.  It was a “tandem flight” off Poo Poo Point on Tiger Mountain.  The weather was perfect: blue skies, warm sun.

I was in the first group to go up.   It was beautiful up in the air – very mellow and serene.  I actually had hoped for a bit more “extreme adventurous”…  but maybe next time. 🙂  I did seem some wicked looking spirals from other paragliders.

 

Some photos:

The dude on the far right was supposed to act as “ballast”…

 

….but the wind was so strong I just popped right up…

  1. Camera strap was definitely around my neck. Only problem with that was, when I tried to take a self-portrait, I couldn’t get the camera far enough from my face. So all of those shots look directly up my nose. 🙂
