Speedflying is not just for crazy kids, we insist. In fact, we really think that all paraglider pilots should try it, especially if they live someplace where wind can be a limiting factor for fun, or at sites where a lack of thermals tends to reduce your enjoyment of paragliding.
Foot launched speedflying is an awesome way to have fun on a windy or no-wind day. It's the most versatile form of flying, and the truth is that it’s not that complicated. In fact, it’s quite simple to learn, and is a suitable option for even some beginner level paraglider pilots. Many of our students are cross-over multisport athletes coming from kiteboarding, skydiving, BASE and paragliding backgrounds. But there is no prerequisite for our program, we teach anyone with drive and passion.
Speedflying wings are stable, simple to fly, and easy to get used to. If you want to stay at The Ranch or camp out down by the river while you are out for training, this is just one of the many benefits we offer to our students.
