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)

When looking at this marvelous picture, Eleu, I could easily thisnk this was taken in Israel's coast along the Mediterranean sea.
Fine captured the moment, could be the paraglider was looking directly at you.

Beautiful scene, the photo is very well composed with the diagonal line of the paraglider, excellent harpness and beautiful view of waves

A fast action shot! This is close to being so good and it looks as though he's having a great time while making the background looks attractive by the flying man!! and this does give a dimension to the image. He does look comfortable sitting on the glider giving a sense of freedom and isolation, but your compo is great too timely shot off centre and the tilt render the strong value further more I like how you caught him so sharply. Brill camera work, bet it' s fabulous up there while keeping your feet on the ground. A stand out shot indeed! Congrats
