Cool experience and the people you fly with are great people but I am really unimpressed with the whole video/photo process. I brought my GoPro with as it is a HERO 8 with great quality video and photo and asked if I could use that instead of the ancient GoPro cameras they use. Was told I can’t, even though all they had to do was swop their GoPro for mine on the end of the stick. I was disappointed but they assured me we will get photos and videos with their (ancient) GoPros. After the flight the one guy wants to take my phone to copy the footage, only to have my friend warn me that you have to pay R300 for it. So it seems the reason they don’t allow you to take your own (better) camera is so that they can make money. Photos and videos from their cameras are okay and nice to have, but I am a content creator and wanted to use my own footage with my own settings etc for a final video. I am not a tourist who wants average footage saved to my phone. The whole flight was cool and safe, but I’ll be looking for a different place in the future, one that allows me to use my own GoPro.

This was the second paragliding experience for my children aged 16 and 13 and the first for our 8 year old. Tom was exceptional! I highly recommend. The entire experience was safe and very organized. 5 stars all around! Thanks Tom!

We booked double airtime with Tom. Monique, his wife, accepted the booking and kept us informed about the weather conditions all the time until the BIG day. On Saturday 12 January we took of at 11.30am. Our "pilots" being Tom and Jan. Beautiful clear sky and perfect wind conditions. As we booked double airtime Tom and Jan really made an effort to keep us in the air as long as possible and after 35 minutes of extreme pleasure and amazing views our flight softly ended at Sea Point. The entire flight was recorded and at the end of the trip we received an SD card with 30 mins of film and hundreds of pictures. An overwhelming memory.....😀 We will certainly do this again.
