I’m afraid your link is not mobile friendly. The video can’t be played on my iPhone.

The link works on my android phone.

Looks very exciting, but not for me at my age!

Wow! Technically, this video is Speed Riding which is different from Paragliding. Parasailing is different again - that's where you get towed behind a boat.

Hello AlanPrice,

Well there's someone who knows his business! :)

I was wondering as I never heard the word paraSAILING. So I see there's lots I've never heard of. Not that I would do it myself… ;)

Oh, there was a time I would have travelled the world to do this, but those days are long gone. The video was shot in Chamonix ( I think). I've flown from the other side of the valley. A great place to paraglide!
