Paragliding

Postby kitenaked » Wed Dec 11, 2013 10:04 pm

Benicia has a great setup for land kiting in the hills next to the skate park. The hills have been mowed clean by goats that are brought in every fall.

Anybody interested in checking it out give me a shout.

Will get some footage soon with land kites and some paraglider action as well.

Soaring with the paraglider is incredible to say the least.

Chris,
Thanks for sharing. I've been looking for a good (grass/dirt) spot in the east bay and had almost given up hope. Looking forward to seeing some footage.
Thanks,
Bric

I would love to check that place out.
I've been looking for a new place to kitelandboard since the grass in
mountain views kitepark was removed. If there's any wind - I'm definitely down
for checking it out tomorrow.

Channing Hill is West of this location. You can get here by going to Gateway Park in Benicia then following the trail along the houses heading East about 150 yards.

Going up there tomorrow to land kite. Direction is forecasted good for tomorrow, but will be way too windy for paraglider.

what software do you use to dejitter your videos. quite impressive to see the outer frame jittering like crazy and the footage rock steady. Or is it a sowtware in our camera?

It was the free tool from YouTube. If I used a monopod or heavier camera, it would have been better. Took it from my cell phone....samsung galaxy..
