Thrill seekers

Paragliding, alpine skiing, motorcycling. All can get you gassed with the thrill rush.

I have been watching "speed flying/ski gliding" develop. Performance parachutes evolved into paragliders, paragliders on skis gave rise to para-skiing. Now from para-skiing comes ski gliding.

I can see moto-cross and x-cross sports getting wings too.

But this.... man oh man, what a rush this has got to be.
