First of all I’d like to thank Sam who really made the experience special,he will put you at ease straight away with his calm and relaxed approach. A very professional guy with great experience. We got kitted up then we launched off the face of the hill, the wind was good the sun was out and visibility from almost 1000ft above the beach was fantastic. We were up for 25-30 minutes, it’s such a relaxing experience just soaring in the wind, I totally recommend this for anyone. Thanks for a great day Sam, my partner and boy now wish to go this as well. Kids from 8yrs can do this.
All the best

This activity is very weather dependent.

Sam our instructor was amazing and very accommodating. Although the weather did change at the end of the day he did his best and at least half of our group made it safely up into the air.

We will definitely be back for the others in the future.

Refunds for none flyers returned very promptly.

I can’t thank Sam enough for a great day out and although I personally didn’t get up in the air it was great to be still so involved.

Thanks again

This was a fantastic experience. Everything was so well organised and our training instructor Sam was first class - professional but friendly. The whole experience was just amax=zing. we had a great day weather wise so we were able to get airborne relatively quickly. I would recommend this experience to anyone.

Three of us went flying with Sam a few weeks ago, and we can all safely say that it was an amazing experience.
The extra measures put into place because of Covid restrictions were well thought out and made us all feel safe during the experience.
Sam was knowledgeable, engaging and relaxed and was able to put us all at ease before flying.
The location, overlooking Croyde Bay and Woolacombe was beautiful, and a perfect place to spend a sunny afternoon.

The flight itself was breathtaking, and although we were 500 feet above the sea below, it felt safe and secure throughout.

You need to get in touch with Sam and tick this one off your bucket list....you wont be disappointed.

An exhilarating experience with beautiful views of the Devon coastline.
Sam’s knowledge and evident passion for hang gliding made for a relaxing flight from preparation to landing, despite this being our first time trying an air sport.
A must-do activity!!

Wonderful experience with Sam / Fly like a bird. Sam has a real enthusiasm for hand gliding and makes it all an amazing experience. Flying over the Woolacombe beach was just incredible you do fell like your just like floating on air. I would definitely recommend and will be doing again someday.

A truly amazing experience. I felt so safe and secure with Sam. He is extremely knowledgable about the area and explained all I needed to know.
But honestly it was the most gentle extreme experience I have ever had.
We hovered over a buzzard and it was like stepping into a serene parallel universe in seconds.
I highly recommend this to anyone.

What an amazing experience. Sam is very professional, fills you with confidence. The whole experience is very well planned out and runs very smoothly. The safety side of the experience is paramount to Sam and every detail is checked thoroughly. The thrill of the flight is something you will never forget. The scenery and location makes it perfect. Very highly recommended. Thankyou so much Sam for a perfect day.

If you are looking for something different then do this. I was given the hang gliding experience as a Christmas present. Considering I’m not a fan of heights, Sam the Pilot made me feel at ease and I wasn’t nervous at all. It’s a brilliant thing to do and you a really are flying like a bird!

What a brilliant experience! Couldn’t recommend Sam more. We went as a group of 5 and everyone had an amazing time! It gives you a perspective that you can only gain from doing this. A completely new experience and one that I can see myself taking up in the future.
