I travelled from West Oz to an amazing part of the country where Cloudbase Paragliding has got it wired. Chris & Mark offer the full live in package where you are immersed around the clock in paragliding heaven . Experienced instruction keeps you both safe & comfortable. Its easy to see, as these guys are oozing with passion to get you achieving your goals. Probably take me another week to get this silly grin off my face.
