Experience an incredible flight above the beaches of Los Angeles during this tandem Malibu paragliding adventure, offering a 20- or 30-minute ride above the gorgeous scenery of this idyllic coastal town. Join your instructor for either a motorized or non-motorized flight above this stunning coastal landscape, gliding above the deep-blue Pacific Ocean and rolling hills below. Whether you're an experienced paraglider, or just looking to add some thrills into your Los Angeles vacation, this is sure to be the perfect adventure. Your tandem paraglding flight also includes all equipment and a safety briefing.
What to Expect
Add a little adrenaline to your California vacation with this Los Angeles paragliding adventure above the famous coastal town of Malibu. This relaxed outdoor activity, offering incredible bird's eye views of the area's rolling hills and scenic beaches, is sure to give you the ride of a lifetime.

Begin your paragliding trip at Malibu's Carbon Beach (sometimes the flight will leave from Ojai depending on wind conditions), with flights departing every 30 minutes between 12 and 5pm. Your exact time will be scheduled upon confirmation with the tour operator. Receive a short safety briefing from your instructor, then get suited up by strapping into your paragliding harness alongside your experienced pilot.

Your paraglider is an inflatable nylon "wing" that fills with air just like a parachute, allowing an incredible sensation of floating as you glide on the nearby air currents. Depending on the option you've selected, you'll either take a 20-minute motorized ride off the beach, or a more traditional 30-minute non-motorized ride, which will depart from the top of a nearby bluff. 

As you glide gently into the sky, your pilot will handle the steering so you can focus on simply enjoying the incredible views. Check out the amazing vistas of the Pacific Ocean and the hills of Malibu down below, perhaps snapping a few pics to remember your amazing flight. Finish your exhilarating ride with a landing back on Carbon Beach.

Like a bird over Malibu

My son and I flew with Claude. It wasn't my first paragliding experience, and Claude's flying harness was by far the most comfortable. He was very relaxed and professional and we had a great time.

Claude has been my instructor over this last summer season, you won't find a more knowledgeable, competent and safe pilot wether you are learning or wanting to fly tandem, would recommend him to anyone.
