    My bestest friend in the whole wide world bought me to this activity as a surprise and I loved it. Mike is a knowledgeable and nice Instructor. I weigh really light so Mike put a lot of rocks into his backpack so that the wind won’t blow us away.

    My wife and I flew with them. It’s really a fun experience and it’s actually not scary at all. My wife flew with Mike and I did with Mark. Both of them are great. Mark let me control it for some time, which is fun. He also talked about the physics knowledge about paragliding. We will come back again.

    I wanted to get my wife a truly memorable experience gift for Xmas. She’s a little scared of heights, but she had mentioned going paragliding, but wasn’t sure if it would be too scary for her. I researched on line and found Mike Fifield of Paragliding San Francisco. Mike was fantastic from start to finish, we traveled from Yuba City to the flying site so we staid in contact with Mike to make sure the weather was good for flying. On the day of the flight, Mike briefed my wife on safety, explained what was going to happen, my wife was totally at ease. Mike instills calmness from start to finish. They took off for their flight and my wife was all smiles from ear to ear. They flew over me several times so I could get video clips and photos. Mike even took in flight pics and texted them to us after the flight. So, if you have ever thought of paragliding. Give Mike a call and book a flight for a truly memorable experience. What Mike provides is a stress free, life long experience of paragliding that you will never forget. Priceless, Thanks Mike, it was truly appreciated

    I took my husband paragliding with Mike for his birthday. (I’m scared of heights but decided to just go for it and I’m so glad I did.) It was so much fun and not nearly as scary as I thought it would be! Mike made us both feel comfortable and relaxed the entire time.The booking process was really straightforward. called him about a month before and we set up a date and time. I texted him the day of to confirm that wind conditions were OK, and we got super lucky with the wind and the weather that day. We drove to Mussel Rock Beach and met him there — he was all set up and ready to go. I think we both spent at least 20-30 minutes floating and it was such a relaxing yet surreal experience. Mike did a great job steering that I never once felt unsafe or at risk. Thanks for a wonderful time, Mike!

    I have been Hang Gliding for years now but have always wanted to get into Paragliding. I decided to call these guys to set up  a tandem flight and let me tell you I sure am glad that I did. The guy who answered the phone was very knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable right from the start. The experience I had with Paragliding San Francisco was excellent and I highly recommend that if you are interested in trying out this sport that you give them a call.

    Mike was born to fly. I had an amazing time on my first paraglide with him. Super comfortable and safe and inspiring. The views are beautiful and I definitely want to go back up.

    The whole experience was just awesome, almost surreal, and Mike is just the perfect guide and pilot!Let’s start from the beginning, the booking: I texted Mike really short notice as I wanted to give my wife this flight as birthday gift. One text on Saturday, and after few minutes he got back to me and everything was arranged for Sunday! Actually, my wife wanted me flying as well, so Mike had no problems finding the way to accomodate both of us! He is really flexible when not fully booked!The day of the flight we had uncertain weather so we kept texting for last minutes updates, and no need to say he knows exactly the best flight conditions, so gave us top confidence that  we’d fly on the best conditions. So my wife flew right away as we arrived. Then we had to wait a little for the conditions to get better for my flight and he had no problem waiting until they were perfect!Flying is not scary at all due to Mike’s professionality: the process starts with a short overview of the equipment and explanations of what will happen. Then take off, flight and landing were flawless for both of us! We flew from Mussel Rock, and this spot is really gorgeous, the views were really stunning. Mike explains every step, and during the flight there is a lot of interaction. We had a ton of fun.Flying is relaxing and exciting at the same time, and he can modulate between the two if you ask :)The flight lasts nearly 30 minutes, but I had the feeling he kept flying for us as we never had enough!So, bottom line, we can’t imagine not being 200% happy after such an experience.

    It was a great experience. Too short of a flight but I thoroughly enjoyed it.



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.
