  paragliding Beach Hotel                   flying beach hotel wilderness
 

Grassy take-off next to the hotel, favoured ridge soaring site as it's so easy to access and fun to fly.

Extremely sensitive site, fly responsibly. One of the best ridge soaring sites in Wilderness.

 

Rules:

 

NO STUDENTS to be launched from this site Basic 50 flights with 3 sign off's .

Dont fly within 10 meters of the Waves Hotel as management not happy when you ridge soar their bedroom suites. To the west is a house on the end of the dune, please don't fly past there as owner has privacy issues. Don't topland if you dont have the skills, rather land on the beach. Great site for Tandem paragliding flights

 

Records:

 

Brian Turner 31km, flew just short of Goukamma river mouth. He was blown over back and landed about 1 km west of river.

Deon Borrett 32 km  flew to the end of Dune about 20 m short of river. About 10 different pilots have done this feat.

Flight to NSRI and back is quite common in the old days before Mr Martins.
