Came across some guys launching their Parasails at Labrador bay in South Devon, near Torquay in the UK. Those magnificent men in their flying machines were amazing! Fortunately I had my camera ready to film as a man launched and flew into the sun to create a stunning and somewhat spooky video. A second guy launches on the up-welling air at the coastline. It certainly was very exciting to watch but I should imagine that flying like a bird on the air currents is something we have all dreamed about doing at some point. The footage is spooky, perhaps a little scary for some who will never experience the thrill of the aviator floating on thermals and flying with the air current on a parachute that goes up instead of down.
After walking a few more miles, we saw a paraglider land on Shaldon Beach, we were miles from the car when the man who was packing away his paraglider offered us a ride back to the car, which was very welcome 🙂 They really are a friendly bunch of nutters who throw caution to the wind, literally !
I hope you enjoy watching this video and please do leave a comment.
