Hang gliding

with 7 comments

When we arrived at Karioitahi Beach the sky was peppered with psychelic silken arches and their black clad cargo, soaring with the grace of eagles.

I must try this one day…

  1. I would love to try this. But I’m afraid of frightening an entire tri-state area with my screams.

    • There is no screaming in hang-gliding. There was probably a hundred or so of them gliding around making no noise at all, not so much as a whir. I think the screamers just didn’t jump off the cliff at the beginning…

      Think of the stories you could tell…


  2. When I visited NZ, I was awed by the fact there was every type of activity available. Here is more proof…those Kiwis never stop! 😀

    • Yeah, there is some weird gene in the wind here… or maybe the insurance companies just don’t have a stranglehold on the adventure business…


  3. I always wanted to hang glide when I was younger and more agile but was too afraid of looking foolish. Not a good reason. Of course, if I had a substantial height from which to soar, I might still attempt it, just to feel that sense of ultimate freedom.

    • Come on down! We’ve got cliffs you can jump off any old time… as long as you’ve got a hang glider attached, of course. I’ll take the photos!

      I still regret not doing a parachute jump when I was 18 because my boyfriend ‘forbid me’ to do it… That is even worse than fear of looking foolish…


      • You win. Your reason is definitely worse than mine.
