The Day Taster

The Day Taster course is designed to introduce the total novice to the joys of  paragliding for the first time. Starting with kit familiarisation and safety briefing,

you will then move on to learning how to inflate and control your canopy before  progressing to making brief, low level flights.

 

We use a selction of the very best sites South West Wales has to offer from Pembrokeshire to the Gower Peninsular.

 

By reducing the stress of progressing from 'beginner slopes' to 'higher flights' we believe we enable you to be more relaxed and focused on your glider controls.

 

Also the proximity of a beautiful local beach enables us to conduct really

effective 'groundhandling' training when it would otherwise be

too windy.Sometimes the Day Taster will involve all preliminary briefings and glider launch and control exercises being conducted on the beach during the day, before travelling up to the mountain in the late afternoon as the wind eases.

 

Be sure to wear a sturdy pair of boots with lots of ankle support, dress appropriately for a day in the mountains, and remember to bring food and plenty of fluids.

 

We returned home, after these experiments, with the conviction that sailing flight was not the exclusive prerogative of birds.
