A Day at the Beach with Tom & Tom

I drove to Cape Cod hoping for a soaring flight in my new paraglider.  However the wind was too strong for a rookie like me.  Luckily, I brought along a hang glider!  I setup, launched, and bounced around the dunes for about an hour.

A fellow rookie paragliding student, Tom Peghiny, was also grounded by the wind.  Tom is also a hang-gliding ace, so I had no problem offering him a flight on my glider.  We squeezed him into my harness and shoved him into the air.

I patched together a short video of our flights, including a couple shots Tom got of seals swimming along the shore.

Flights: 1, Duration: 0:60
