“Cheap thrill”
Reviewed June 13, 2012

Torrey Pines Gliderport was unexpectedly fun. All it is is a wide open, dirt parking area where you can walk to the edge of the cliffs and see incredible views of the coastline below. The thing that makes it unique is that you can watch hang gliders take off and land from the cliff, and soar right above your head. It was a good, cheap thrill!

“Great paragliding”
Reviewed June 11, 2012

I used to ridge soar there when David Jebb ran the place. It is a great ridge and David was a great manager. I haven't glided there for several years now.

“Great views”
Reviewed June 3, 2012

Ideal place to gaze at the Pacific and if the wind and weather are favorable, observe the hang gliders. Don't venture onto the overhang or cliffs.
