Torrey Pines Gliderport - Tandem Hang Gliding

About This Activity

Hang Gliding has been around much longer than paragliding. It is based on an internally-supported, rigid wing with a control bar that gives the pilot very direct and immediate control over the flying surface. It is a more active style of flying since the pilot must also be handling the wing. The prone position (lying down) is more exhilarating for some, compared to the seated position that paragliding pilots have.
