About Elite Paragliding
Elite paragliding offers tandem paragliding flights in a handful of scenic locations across the bay area. There are no engines and no tow line involved. We use the power of mother nature to keep us flying from anywhere between 10 and thousands of feet above the ground. You will be paired up with a certified tandem instructor and every flight doubles as a brief flight lesson.

We understand that our customer experience starts from the moment someone books to the moment they drive away after their flight and we're sad that we didn't meet Kenya's expectations. Our website, automated emails, and text updates explains that paragliding is sensitive to the weather....More
