Is it safe to Hang Glide or Paraglide?
Any free flying, from hang gliding, paragliding, speedflying or powered flight is considered an extreme sport. There is an element of risk to ANY extreme sport so it is advisable to join a school and learn properly and safely.
Also... if you are in a school... your insured. Its just common sense! You learn to drive, you learn to swim, you learn to ski... knowledge is key!
FINDING SOME KIT AND THROWING YOURSELF OFF THE SIDE OF A HILL ISN'T WISE... anyone would tell you that! You can hurt yourselves, others, walls, livestock, your fun day out and your bank balance! Doesn't bear thinking about!
