I just took a paragliding intro course, together with some of my wider family.  The wind was a little strong for beginners, but brief enthralling experiences of floating /gliding ensued. Still debating with myself whether to follow up. With sports, for me what I call “hassle factor” plays a large role, and the hassle factor for paragliding is substantial. Further, there must be a non-vanishing intersection between favourable weather conditions, technical facilities and my time – perhaps when I retire ;-). 

  All the same, a great experience anyone should try. On the portrait photo below you can see how much I enjoyed it…
