Flight was cancelled due to bad weather, but we found another guys who flought on this day and for them the weather was totally fine. My wife booked flight 1 month before as a gift on my birthday and one day before I received reminder about the flight. It should be at the morning and with family we spent 1.5 hours to get the office as it was not close. Only there by phone one guy said that my flight is cancelled due to bad weather. Nobody informed me before. And also guy said that it's not very obvious when the weather will be better for flight maybe on next day or later. Also he didn't want to fix somehow situation - propose another dates or anything else so I had a feeling that he is just not interested. But just 1 hour later few kilometers from the office we saw another guys who flought. We found them and they said that weather is perfectly fine. So we were very confused.

Response from Jean-Vincent D, Propriétaire at Spir'it Parapente

Hello, It is indicated on the website that it is imperative to call the day before the flight for the weather confirmation!! This is done in order to double check the information taken by the customer. You were not at the rendez-vous point because you never readed all the information on the web site! The weather is local and it is always possible that the conditions of the day are good on a flight site and bad a few kilometers farest and it's changing very quickly. The weather condition wasn't enought good for a tandem flight at the hour of your reservation and you're not alone. When your flight is cancelled for weather conditions, it's not always possible to change for an other hour in the same day. In solo, it's not the same thing, the pilot decide what he want to do with his life at his onw risk. your point of view... but not my job. You only give an foreigner phone number and m'y not agree to phone on a foreign number due of a lot of fake number and spam number. I purpose you to come the next day, i was waiting you like i said by phone... you're never came but send this.. so I flew solo ans it was goog. It's a shame thank, cordialy, J-V

I took a flight with a friend in August. During my flight there was two three times when I felt "airbumps", but they were like in an airplane, or even milder as they were very short. Afterwards the operator said that the weather was quite choppy, but I didn't really notice. Very nice experience. The 15 minutes was long enough for a first timer. BTW at that time the operator was alone, so it's good to mention when booking if you are a group and there's someone who is willing to drive the car back. Otherwise there is long delay between the flights, because the operator has to go get the car back from the hill by himself.
