I can only report on this as a spectator, as it looked to scary for me, although there were plenty of people lined up to take a glide (and it wasn't even a clear day). It is enjoyable watching people learn how to take off, and then glide off of the Torrey Pines cliffs (a scenic designation in itself). And it is breathtaking to watch them land so very near the edge of the cliffs again. If you are out investigating La Jolla, this is worth a stop (and it is free to watch other people take a dive!).

We spent some time here in the afternoon sitting and watching the beginners practice and the experts fly around. It was cool. Would never do it myself but it was fun. There's a store and a place to grab a bite to eat which was nice.

San Diego is blessed with a lot of blue sky days. Go here to take it up a notch.
