Feb 14, 2011 – Happy Valentines!
Today was shaping up to be a great day to run off a cliff with the loves of my life! The wind finally switched to inshore and they are bouncing off the cliffs of Blacks Beach, shaping an invisible vert ramp. Today we get to ride the sky!
Gianna, Jet and Jaci are down for the ride. They went tandem as I chased them around with my Gin Gangster. Fatherhood has reached new levels. Bad pun intended, of course.
It’s an amazing experience to share your passions with the ones you are most passionate about. Gianna, Jet and I have family vert sessions now, we took a balloon a mile high a few days ago. I got to blow a kiss to them and Nestea plunge out to the sky, and now we are going to soar one of the most beautiful paragliding sites.
Torrey Pines Gliderport is definitely the best way to site see San Diego. The Torrey Pines ridge goes from La Jolla to Del Mar. To the north, you fly over a golf course and to the south you fly past 30 million dollar mansions.
I first flew this site about 7 years ago, but haven’t flown it since I was blindsided by a Semi 10.27.07! Days like this make me trust “if there is a will, there is a way” spite the odds.
Here’s some video of the day. I’m the guy with the white paraglider chasing my family around the Mountain:
A BIG THANK YOU TO THE TANDEM PILOTS KI AND STEVE FOR TAKING CARE OF MY FAMILY.
