Above all else, hang gliding is about following your dreams as metriculously as routine safety procedures.
Learning to fly takes a lot of continuous effort, but the reward is more than worth it.
"Flying like a bird" is exactly what hang gliding feels like. Very natural and non-mechanical. You feel that you're present in the real world, not just a passenger in a videogame.
A hang glider doesn't have an engine – the only moving part is you.
Hang gliding affects you beyond summer weekends. It puts things into perspective. It requires you to never give up. It makes your life easier.
