Adventures flying paragliders around BC, Canada, and the world.
Woodside August 30
One of the rare times when we head out for a ridge soaring day and not a thermal day...
It was very strong on launch and we had to wait for lulls to safely launch in, but once in the air it was buttery-smooth and hands-off flying. Lift to over 1000m and the lift band was very wide!
After an hour I opted to head out to Eagle Ranch since the car was there, but Alex and Tom went to Harvest Market instead. Because of all the clouds shutting down the thermic activity, the landing at ER was not that bad, and only a little bit of rotor off Harrison Bump at the 500m mark. Lots of people fishing on the Fraser River though!
