I was just looking at olu deniz website and saw the paragliding, and thouhgt i could have a bit of that.

But was wondering if any body knows if there is a weight restrictions? Im 6ft tall with shouders to match, and weighing in at 17 n a half stone. Would like to know before i get out there to spare the dissapointment!

Hi E-Magoo

Well thats virtually the same size and weight I was when I did it, and it was no problem, they balance the weight a bit by using a smaller pilot.

Enjoy it

Make sure you have enough memory left in your camera - pictures are despicable!

People imagine that it is really scary to do paragliding - the road up to the take-off site is actually scarier that the flight itself. My mum was scared to do paragliding but changed her mind when realised she would have to get back to OluDenis by that mountain road! This year she will go paragliding again - she loved it so much!

We used Sky sports, they also made a video DVD for us, as well as fish-eye pictures. The choice of companies offering paragliding is huge, as are the range of prices. Sky was slightly more expensive than other companies but it is also regarded as the most reputable company, offer insurance etc..
