Paramotoring in Alaska: The Chase Video

By | February 25, 2013 - 7:00 am

I have been an outdoor sportsman all my life… archery, fly fishing, snow machine, dirt bike, jet ski, skiing, snow boarding, wake boarding to name a few. I recently (5 years ago) found a passion for kite surfing and snow kiting. That progressed to the need for more “air time” so myself, and several “kiter” friends, picked up the sport of paragliding and then “Powered Paragliding” as seen in the video.

Now I find it hard to do any other sport, except flying paragliders, weather motor flying or free flying. Only because I spend so much time in the air. I tell everyone the same thing….”You have not lived until you have flown” and I don’t mean sitting in a plane, but rather being the plane.
