Thats awsome.
Imagine living in a place where there was steady wind all the time. You could fly yourself to work every day. Getting home might be tough though. But the ride out would be worth the walk home I bet!!

I'm betting that it's like ridge soaring - the updraft created by the dunes gives them the lift ...
Hoping to travel to work by powered paraglider some time in the future :smilegrin:

yeah, and they didn't look too overpowered. Lots of 9s and the bushes were flaining and the sand was calm. There was one scene where the guys pants wer flapping... maybe just under 25? Hardly seems like enough.
