Paragliding is fantastic and there aee few doubts about it. A tandem flight is also safe. However I consider my experience at parapax much worse than other I had. It is very short.

Even though I was very quiet during the whole experience, trying to take in the absolutely magnificent view, Nigel was really fantastic. It was an amazing experience being in the sky in a completely different way to what I am used to(I am cabin Crew) will definitely be returning very soon

Fantastic morning! Taking a leap of faith off Signal Hill with a calm, competent pilot was exhilarating. The flight was smooth and incredibly beautiful- just over far too quickly.

Wow- these guys really know about customer service! My wife and daughter did the jump and from my first phone call earlier that day to the drinks bought for us after the jump it was a professional, friendly and tremendously enjoyable experience. Thoroughly recommended!
