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

My first time tandem paraglide . Sam was a great host, very knowledgeable and a calm pilot … always felt safe . The flight was relatively short due to the gentle wind conditions but you have to accept that they can’t be dialled up as required . However, spending over 3 hours in a beautiful location, learning about the sport, the equipment and how a very competent pilot reads the conditions was a great experience in itself .

A fantastic day paragliding! The experience of viewing the beautiful Devon coastline while floating along like a bird was just wonderful. I would definitely recommend this for anyone any age. Highly professional company, pre flight information and contact faultless and on the day Sam was excellent, I felt 100% in safe hands, thank you so much.

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.

Wow! What a fabulous experience! The nearest thing to flying I’ve ever felt! I’ve been sky diving, paragliding and in a hot air balloon but this was definitely the best without a doubt. The amount of time in the air - about 20 minutes -allows you to really enjoy the experience and see the fabulous views of Woolacombe bay. Sam was so professional and made the whole day really enjoyable and memorable. It felt so safe and was simple to take off and land. I loved it and would highly recommend it to anyone who wants a really great day out and a wonderful memory for life!

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.

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!!

An excellent experience from start to finish. Day was rebooked a couple of times due to poor weather but on the day everything went very smoothly with happy faces all round. Sam has a great system going and I recommend the hang gliding flight to everyone.
