    Mike was great. I’ve been paragliding twice before in California, but this was the best flight of all .

  • Had a blast! First time tandem paragliding and Mike was hands down the best instructor! Very professional and calm. Will be returning soon

  • Just got back from paragliding today and it was an AMAZING experience. My friends and I decided to celebrate our birthdays by taking a flight and it was worth every penny. Due to the recent weather, COVID restrictions, and fire, it took several attempts to go on a flight. Mike always kept us well informed about the conditions, because safety is very important. But today, was the day! The tandem instructor James M, was super nice, informative, and very patient. He taught us about thermal lift, flying and how to change directions while in the air. Its and experience I will never forget. I definitely plan do it again. I would given them 6 plus stars for both instructors if I could!

    I don’t usually write reviews, but after my experience today, I have to share how amazing it was tandem paragliding with Mike.  First off, it was easy to schedule, Mike gave me a meeting point address and asked that I call before I headed over to check on the wind and advised that I wear sneakers and a windbreaker.       This was my first time paragliding and Mike put me at ease right away.  He explained everything very clearly and with his years of experience and knowledge, I felt very comfortable, albeit my excited nerves. 🙂  I was fortunate to have beautiful weather today and great wind.  It was perfect for pictures too!   Getting off the ground was quick and before I knew it we were gliding along the coast.  It was so peaceful and serene, floating up high above the cliffs and coastline.  Mike was fun to chat with and described things along the way.  Our landing was smooth, and fortunately I didn’t fall on my face 🙂 Mike was a true professional and took great care of me.  As we were flying I was already talking about scheduling another flight, so I highly recommend giving Mike a call and scheduling a flight!   It was exhilarating and will give you a boost of adrenaline!

    My brother and I had the best time of our lives paragliding yesterday with our trainer Mike. I’m so afraid of heights and this was so helpful to concur that fear. Mike was super friendly, helpful and professional. If anyone reading this review and wants to go paragliding, please do so and ask for Mike! Thanks Mike for everything my brother and I will be paragliding again soon.

    I hope this review reaches the masses, lol. This was my first time ever doing something so bold as this, I must say it was a GREAT experience. The instructor was cool, knowledgable and patient as I took my first flight. I highly recommend having your first flight with this company and team, you won’t regret it. I will definietly be doing it again!!!

    It was an awesome experience for both myself , my husband and my 5-year-old son. Mike is very experienced, skillful and super patient. Due to the weather reason, we needed to reschedule for more than 6 times, but Mike helped us to double check with our schedule and weather every single time until finally we made it. The fly was so cool and the view was really great, couldn’t hold my screaming, lol.

    I researched many of the paragliding companies and Mike was responsive and got back to me with lots of answers and respond quick. I came down from Mendocino County for my 60th birthday. I had a wonderful time. It was easy informative he was pleasant and very comfortable to be with. I can’t wait to do it again

    It was an amazing experience I really enjoyed it, Mike is an amazing guy, very professional and patient and you will be safe with him. I highly recommend flying with him.



Had a great experience flying with Mike! He was exceptionally professional, prepared me well for what to expect for my first ever flight, and patiently waited for optimal wind conditions so that I could fly. I will definitely fly again with Paragliding San Francisco and will be looking into their flight training as well. Highly recommend for all levels.

I have tried just about every extreme sport and so far paragliding is my favorite. I went for my Birthday and chose Paragliding San Francisco based on the all five star yelp reviews.

I felt safe with Mike and he made for a great paragliding experience. Paragliding over the ocean was not so much an adrenaline rush as it is more relaxing. I loved it so much that I want to learn to paraglide by myself!

Well not much I can say that hasn’t already been said by other folks. Mike was great. Professional, skillful, communicated well and best of all super chill. My first flight couldn’t have been any better ..well maybe if the sun was out but hey it’s SF ;).
Would and will recommend to anyone interested in trying out.



This is one of the best adventures of my life! Mike is very professional and experienced! He is thoughtful for safety. I really enjoyed it the trip with him. It was so beautiful to see everything in the air, like a flying bird! Thank you very much Mike! You are doing the best!

Mike is definitely passionate about the sport and is committed to making your flight one to remember. He’s helped spark my interest in paragliding and I plan on coming back for more. I’ve already recommended this experience to a friend as I have full confidence in his gear and experience. Don’t let this be a dream and go experience it for yourself!

I don’t typically write reviews but my experience with Mike was phenomenal. He definitely knows what he’s doing and was very friendly and conversational throughout. I would highly recommend Mike if you’re looking to go paragliding!
Would and will recommend to anyone interested in trying out.
