Very good welcome. I had a great time with Théo, he's more than a coach, he's passionate! Between the thrills (head in the clouds), the flying carpet etc.... you feel reassured by his explanations beforehand. Really nothing like my first experience. I recommend this team and see you soon for new adventures. JP the gym teacher

The weather was against us (windy and very cloudy). Antoine, Alex and Théo rescheduled the flight to 1:15pm: although we had to get up very early, we don't regret having listened to this very good advice! Very good experience for our first paragliding flight. Confidence building and great sensations. Many thanks to the whole team. -V & G-
