Doug took me up for my first paragliding flight on a gorgeous day over Waimanalo. He is extremely safety oriented and he ensured I knew exactly what I needed to do during the pre-flight session. As we flew, he explained how the wind works to create such great updrafts that carried us up to 2,200 feet! Very cool experience and I can't wait to go again. Thanks Doug!

I'm a flying lover but I can't do sky diving for health consideration. This was my first paragliding experience and i was so excited. Me and my husband both did 30 mins flying. Launching seemed hard to me as the spot was small, but Doug was a very skillful pilot so both launching and landing were quite smooth. Staying in the air and looking down at the sea was so peaceful that it amazed me. Very special experience & must do at Oahu! I wanted to say a big Thank You to Doug and his wife. Doug called us to advise transportation and confirmed the whether multiple times. He offered us a ride much cheaper than Uber as we didn't get a rental car. His wife was the one-day driver and accompanied us the whole trip. They both were so kind and that made my best travelling experience ever!

My daughter wanted to fly so we called up Doug. He was great! Met us at the location near Sealife Park and took my daughter paragliding. The rain started to come in so Doug called me on my cell phone (while up in the air) and told us where we could meet him on the beach miles up the road so they could avoid the rain. My daughter said the ride was very peaceful and beautiful. She got to pilot the paraglider and fly miles down the coastline and land on a beach. We purchased the go pro video and photos that Doug offered for $40 on a SD card that was worth it. Highly recommend it for anyone who wants to try paragliding.

An incredible 45 minutes of flying. Absolutely brilliant. this is a must do. the flying was more than i could have hoped for. Doug was a great instructor and the ride was calm and peaceful, we even had a bird parallel flying with us. Doug was an amazingly enthusiastic guide and seemed to love every second of what he does. The views you receive from the glider are breathtaking.

I can not say enough good things about this experience. The pictures and videos do it justice. It is amazingly beautiful and extremely relaxing. It is definitely adrenaline pumping to start but once you get up there and you are just floating around taking pictures, it is super relaxing. I recommend doing the longest time, you will be glad you did. Doug is a super great instructor and helps you out throughout the entire launch and flight. We paid for the gopro package but Doug also allows you to bring your own gopro as long as it can be secured to you somehow. The only negative thing about the entire experience was scheduling the flight. The entire flight is based off the wind/weather so if it does not cooperate then you will not fly that day. Doug recommends scheduling your flight early on in your trip that way if it gets cancelled then you have time to reschedule later in the trip. That is exactly what happened to us. So have backup plans for the days you plan to fly.
