Paragliding at Torrey Pines

 

Parasailing at Torrey Pines

Torrey Pines is famous for it's World famous golf course as well as for it's famed glider port. Hang Gliding and Paragliding are two of the main activities there. There are model plane and model helicopter fliers but they tend to be out when there is less wind and when good conditions are not as favorable for Paragliding and Hang Gliding. 

These sports are not for the faint of heart as you are flying off a sandstone cliff at the edge of the Pacific Ocean. What is photographed here are the 3 para gliders. Look carefully, the 3rd one can be seen up near the underside of the large sail.

While I am not a candidate to fly one these, I do enjoy watching them, especially taking off and landing. In the photo above, there are two persons flying tandem. One is the instructor and the person in front is the student. Before one flies solo there is a lot to learn. The equipment and how to use,  maneuver and care for it, understanding wind conditions and how to stay flying and ultimately learning the terrain and emergency procedures. 

The Torrey Pines Glider port is open for visitors and it is always free to come and watch. I have been there when dozens of gliders are in the air at the same time and it is a fun and pleasant experience. A great way to spend a a warm sunny day in San Diego.
