Paragliding is Hard !!!!


The first few days paragliding course are tough, not just physically but mentally. There is lot going on around you and feel like a dork running around with a piece of cloth you just cant control.


Many pilot students come right from their office desks to tackle the beast we know as paragliders,








It was pretty winter of 2016. Handling glider on the ground perpendicular to the body while running with it is the first milestone of the training. It was frustrating but I kept myself steady at work.


I was thinking myself in the air with glider all the time while doing ground practice. May be this thinking kept me honest with the work on the ground. There were rashes on my body. But I would say I slept like a baby in the night.




 

After a week I felt confident about taking off from the hill. Why not!! I have waited for long for this moment. After a week I felt confident about taking off from the hill. Why not!!

Oh man !! I felt weight less and free. And of course the fear prevais. S turns and hear I land on the ground.


And once more I longed to take off immediately.
