Torrey Pines Gliderport
Those who have ridden the wind say it feels like “walking on air.” With paragliding, you can fly in lighter wind conditions than you can while hang-gliding and remain comfortably seated for the 20-plus-minute tandem journey ($150). “Get a bird’s-eye view” of the golf course, La Jolla mansions, and miles of coastline. Launch from a cliff that Charles Lindbergh once used as his training ground. It all depends on wind conditions, so no reservations — instead, call the morning you want to fly. Fortunately, this being San Diego, weather isn’t usually an issue.
