Needs a date
Needs a location
This event is a waiting list for anyone interested in going tandem paragliding. When I get an actual date lined up, I will announce it to all the members of this group, and they'll have a chance to RSVP for one of the spots. We can only take a handfull of people each time, so be ready to RSVP quick!
If you are tired of your land-ridden life, or just need to rebel a bit (from gravity!), then look no further! To see how much fun everyone had on the last trip, check out this video.
As a tandem paragliding student, you'll get a chance to soar with the birds and enjoy the sunny bayside cliffs in Vallejo, or the beautiful and rugged terrain of Mussel Rock Park in Pacifica. You are guaranteed 10 minutes of airtime, with flights lasting on average 15 minutes. All you need to bring is a pair of sturdy shoes, weather-appropriate clothes, and a great attitude!
Meanwhile, the rest of the group is on the ground, enjoying picnic lunches and remembering to slather on the sunscreen! Bring your own food, or go lunch-room style and bring some to trade!
To sign up for this meetup you will need to pay our pilot in advance, so when the new event is posted, join the waiting list, then follow the instructions on that page to pay via Paypal. Once we confirm your payment, I'll add you to the confirmed RSVP list.
@sana - The cost varies slightly based on which pilot(s) I get to come out for the weekend. Normal rates on tandem flights go for $200-$250 for between 20-60 minutes. However, I have a number of connections, and since we are coming in bulk, we are averaging $150 each, with flights of 15-30 minutes a piece.

@Gin This event is the waiting list/interested list for everyone interested in going. Since we can only take a handful of people each time, this group will remain open so that people can keep joining, and then leave once they get to go on one of the scheduled ones. Due to the highly weather dependent nature of paragliding, I don't like to schedule more than a week or two out, since its not worth it to get everyone's hopes up. Whenever I lock a date down with our pilot, I will make a new event, and let everyone in this group know in advance so they get first crack at it.
