Paragliding on the Central Coast of CaliforniaJanuary 1, 2019 7:49 pm
Just south of the amazing Big Sur coastline is San Luis Obispo County California. Here is a beautiful day at the beach with the members of the San Luis Obispo Soaring Association. Flying in SLO County is usually best between November and March. Low barometric pressure, northwest winds, and cooler temps are the best weather conditions to soar in at this site. My wing is a Skywalk Tequila 4, and there are a few Ozone Buzz 5’s and an UP Trango XC3 in this video (among others). The video was shot with a helmet mounted GoPro Hero 7 Silver.
In this next video, I had my favorite coastal ridge paragliding spot all to myself on a day with perfect flying conditions. The top view camera is the GoPro Hero 7 Silver attached to a magnet mount. Enjoy this solo “dune gooning” session.
