Intro to Paragliding: The Art of Falling Up
Presenter: Sean Tierney
Biography: Local AZ native. Co-founder of JumpBox and Scratch Audio. Currently infatuated with enabling new forms of collaboration amongst musicians.
Description: Paragliding (not parasailing behind a boat) is like hang gliding only using a parachute instead of a fixed wing. I've flown 2+ consecutive hours ridge soaring the beaches of Ecuador and thermaling 6,000′ above ground & off of active volcanoes. In 5 min I'll introduce you to this wonderful sport and show you how a parachute can actually fall up.
