I think this looks pretty dangerous, Art. :-o

Doing these extreme sports, you can't be very much retired. :-))

What's next? Skydiving? Base jumping? Mountain climbing? Maybe Kilimanjaro? :-))

Per, The trainers at the Kittywake Kite Hang Gliding school make it safe to take these entry level lessons. Notice that the trainers are running beside with tethers attached to the wing struts. This makes it possible to prevent a ground loop or crash landing if you don't do the right thing. My wife was so light they had to use the tethers to keep her from blowing away. -Art
