Ridge Soaring in Paraglider
I am an avid flyer, at least as much as my budget would allow. I have always been interested in aircraft and sailplanes in particular.

I dive in Kas a couple of times over the past few years. I have watched the paragliders land on the wharf where the dive boat docks. Given I had a spare day I decided I would like to have a ride on one of the paragliders.

The operations was simple and organized; I showed up at the assigned time and was driven to the mountain top launch site. After a quick briefing on how we will take off and what to do after launch, we connected ourselves to the paraglider. Take off is not so much as a rush of a powered aircraft of jet liner. We walked forward and before we took a few steps we were airborne and accelerating downhill. The pilot flew into the windward and sunlit side of the mountains above Kas. Maneuvering that he did was well understood and I knew the pilot was working the ridge lift there. Ridge lift pushed the paraglider up higher than that of the launch site. And we flew back overhead of the launch site just in time to see the last paraglider launch.

As a group we worked the ridge lift to just behind Kas itself. We then glided down over the town towards the wharf where the flight ended.

From my perspective I have never flown so slowly. It was a gentle breeze in the face and a comfortable ride down. The passenger is treated to a vista of the both marinas and the town itself. If you have any interest in flying like a bird this is as close as it comes. A well worth the money experience.
