Despite not using an engine, paraglider flights can last many hours and cover many hundreds of kilometres, though flights of 1–2 hours and covering some tens of kilometres are more the norm. By skilful exploitation of sources of lift the pilot may gain height, often climbing to altitudes of a few thousand metres. (From Wikipedia)

Attractive candid of the hang glider in action, flowing with the wind and the waves moving along in the same pattern. Certainly dangerous, for a fall from this height would be most likely fatal.
Is this the Torrey Pines cliff area?
Thanks for sharing,

This looks like a very exciting sport and your picture here is also very good. The paraglider is providing action and colours above the soft waves of the sea.

Belle scène dynamique, bien capturer du parapente en plein vol , un spectacle que j'aime regarder, j'en ai vue l'année passer dans le sud de la France, jour de grand vent ...
