This apparently is a "footlaunch"

I have zero experience with paragliding (and don't expect to acquire any), but this video would certainly tempt me to try it if I were 40 years younger...


  1. Holy carpe diem! That was beautiful.

  2. We were in the area around Grindelwald in Switzerland last summer. Now the thing is to use parasails to do the same thing. We got to watch someone up close launch themselves from just below the Eigergletscher. It was amazing how quickly she was able to take off and rise what must have been several thousand feet from the already high moutainside.
