Speed Flying & Riding

Posted on

Speedriding is a new discipline of flying/paragliding and of ski freeriding. Its simplicity lends itself to a wide public range of opportunity: no need to have paragliding experience, only good skiing skills (on & off piste) is needed to Speedride. Indeed, this activity is practiced on snow, and consists of skiing & low flying using a pair of skis, a harness, a helmet and a small speed flying wing.

The idea is to go down slopes quickly by mixing the glide on snow and light flying. Speed riding becomes speed kiting when the wing is used to pull the skier at an angle.

Learning to fly solo (without proper instruction) is unsafe and is risky for other skiers. PLEASE DO NOT ATTEMPT TO LEARN ON YOUR OWN!

Since having a tandem paragliding experience in Switzerland a few years ago, my two teenage sons have eagerly wanted to learn to paraglide. I wanted to learn with them, but with a much higher level of trepidation and fear!  Kay Tauscher (Advanced Instructor & Owner at Peak to Peak Paragliding) has been the perfect teacher for each one of us.

Her teaching style is very personable and supportive of every students individual process. With a wealth of knowledge and encouragement she has taught us effectively, with fun and with ease.  She has made herself available at every opportunity to streamline our learning time.

My boys are now both well on their ways to becoming independent pilots.
The learning curve for me has been much steeper but Kay has stuck with me, gently encouraging my every step. I am so glad to be learning this amazing sport. If you want to give it a try I really can’t recommend Peak to Peak Paragliding enough.

Paragliding is awesome and my recent training experience to obtain my USHPA P2 rating with Kay Tauscher with Peak to Peak Paragliding has been exceptional.  The self-paced, weather permitting curriculum will deliver a fantastic opportunity to gain the skills necessary to fly with confidence.  Kay accommodates various personal schedules to help students achieve their ratings at the pace they want to progress.  The training site in Boulder is perfect for all student skill levels.Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download

Kay is very clear from day one that she teaches with emphasis placed on form and technique and has a keen eye for the tweaks that will help you get the most out of every flight.  Based on my observations, there is a difference between learning to paraglide and learning the art of paragliding.  Kay Tauscher teaches the art of paragliding with a passion for every one of her students to succeed in their flying experience.~Jerry Patton, P2, Age: 48 Yrs, Westminster, CO.
