Paragliding is the recreational and competitive adventure sport of flying paragliders: lightweight, free-flying, foot-launched glider aircraft with no rigid primary structure.The pilot sits in a harness or lies supine in a cocoon-like ‘speed bag’ suspended below a fabric wing. Wing shape is maintained by the suspension lines, the pressure of air entering vents in the front of the wing, and the aerodynamic forces of the air flowing over the outside.
Despite not using an engine, paraglider flights can last many hours and cover many hundreds of kilometres, though flights of one to two hours and covering some tens of kilometres are more the norm. By skillful exploitation of sources of lift, the pilot may gain height, often climbing to altitudes of a few thousand metres.
In 1966, Canadian Domina Jalbert was granted a patent for a multi-cell wing type aerial device—“a wing having a flexible canopy constituting an upper skin and with a plurality of longitudinally extending ribs forming in effect a wing corresponding to an airplane wing airfoil … More particularly the invention contemplates the provision of a wing of rectangular or other shape having a canopy or top skin and a lower spaced apart bottom skin”, a governable gliding parachute with multi-cells and controls for glide.
In 1954, Walter Neumark predicted (in an article in Flight magazine) a time when a glider pilot would be “able to launch himself by running over the edge of a cliff or down a slope … whether on a rock-climbing holiday in Skye or skiing in the Alps.”
In 1961, the French engineer Pierre Lemongine produced improved parachute designs that led to the Para-Commander (PC). The Para-Commander had cutouts at the rear and sides that enabled it to be towed into the air and steered, leading to parasailing/parascending.
Domina Jalbert invented the parafoil, which had sectioned cells in an aerofoil shape; an open leading edge and a closed trailing edge, inflated by passage through the air – the ram-air design. He filed US Patent 3131894 on January 10, 1963.
About that time, David Barish was developing the sail wing (single-surface wing) for recovery of NASA space capsules—”slope soaring was a way of testing out … the Sail Wing.After tests on Hunter Mountain, New York, in September 1965, he went on to promote slope soaring as a summer activity for ski resorts.
Author Walter Neumark wrote Operating Procedures for Ascending Parachutes, and in 1973 he and a group of enthusiasts with a passion for tow-launching PCs and ram-air parachutes broke away from the British Parachute Association to form the British Association of Parascending Clubs (which later became the British Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association). In 1997, Neumark was awarded the Gold Medal of the Royal Aero Club of the UK. Authors Patrick Gilligan (Canada) and Bertrand Dubuis (Switzerland) wrote the first flight manual, The Paragliding Manual in 1985, coining the word paragliding.
These developments were combined in June 1978 by three friends, Jean-Claude Bétemps, André Bohn and Gérard Bosson, from Mieussy, Haute-Savoie, France. After inspiration from an article on slope soaring in the Parachute Manual magazine by parachutist and publisher Dan Poynter,they calculated that on a suitable slope, a “square” ram-air parachute could be inflated by running down the slope; Bétemps launched from Pointe du Pertuiset, Mieussy, and flew 100 m. Bohn followed him and glided down to the football pitch in the valley 1000 metres below. Parapente (pente being French for ‘slope’) was born.
From the 1980s, equipment has continued to improve, and the number of paragliding pilots and established sites has continued to increase. The first (unofficial) Paragliding World Championship was held in Verbier, Switzerland, in 1987,though the first officially sanctioned FAI World Paragliding Championship was held in Kössen, Austria, in 1989.
Europe has seen the greatest growth in paragliding, with France alone registering in 2011 over 25,000 active pilots.
Abseiling (/ˈæbseɪl/ or /ˈɑːpzaɪl/; from German abseilen, ‘to rope down’), also known as rappelling (/ɹæˈpɛl/ or /ɹəˈpɛl/; from French rappeler, ‘to recall’ or ‘to pull through’), is a controlled descent off a vertical drop, such as a rock face, by descending a fixed rope.
This technique is used by climbers, mountaineers, cavers, canyoners, search and rescue and rope access technicians to descend cliffs or slopes when they are too steep and/or dangerous to descend without protection. Many climbers use this technique to protect established anchors from damage. Rope access technicians also use this as a method to access difficult-to-reach areas from above for various industrial applications like maintenance, construction, inspection and welding.
To descend safely, abseilers use a variety of techniques to increase the friction on the rope to the point where it can be controlled comfortably. These techniques range from wrapping the rope around their body (e.g. The Dülfersitz) to using a custom-built device like a rack. Practitioners choose a technique based on speed, safety, weight and other circumstantial concerns.
In the United States, the term “rappelling” is used nearly exclusively. In the United Kingdom, both terms are understood, but “abseiling” is strongly preferred.In Australia, New Zealand and Canada, the two terms are used interchangeably. Globally, the term “rappelling” appears in books written in English more often than “abseiling”.
The origin of the term rappel in reference to the technique is attributed by Roger Frison-Roche circa 1944.Frison in turn attributed the techinique of abseiling to Jean Charlet-Straton , a Chamonix guide who lived from 1840 to 1925. Charlet originally devised the technique during a failed solo attempt of Petit Dru in 1876. After many attempts, some of them solo, he managed to reach the summit of the Petit Dru in 1879 in the company of two other hired Chamonix guides, Prosper Payot and Frédéric Folliguet. During that ascent, Charlet mastered the technique.

Whether you’re looking to dive, snorkel or simply slip beneath the waves to witness the mysterious underwater life- there’s hardly a spot as awesome as Cape Town. This coastal city is teeming with deep blue oceans that have the widest varieties of Mako sharks, cape fur seals, dolphins and blue sharks. You can visit most of these snorkeling spots throughout the year, and the options here are immense! And if you’re a beginner, we’re here to help get you started with the ultimate snorkeling mask buyer’s guide and where to go in Cape Town for snorkelling. In the following section, we have listed 7 of the best snorkeling spots around Cape Town. Read on, for more detailed insight on visiting these fantastic destinations.
If you’re looking to dive into the False Bay in Cape Town, Pyramid Rock can be your go-to destination. Located near Miller’s Point, this massive rock is visible during both high and low tides. The rock is more of a high profile reef which is well-sheltered from the North Western winds. As you visit the point, you’ll love the individual and group snorkeling tours that are usually guided by an expert.
Although this place doesn’t give you excellent shore access, yet, that won’t affect your free diving or snorkeling experience. Once you dive into the deep blue waters, you’ll get an opportunity to explore the wide varieties of fish, shy sharks, cow sharks, and even gully sharks. In case you’re looking for some added adventure, try swimming to this point from Shark Alley. Pyramid Rock is open throughout the year for snorkeling, but it is ideally suitable for winters.
If you’re particularly fond of Seal snorkeling and are looking forward to an ultimate wildlife experience- snorkeling at Hout Bay can be a great option. Plunge into the deep Atlantic blues as you swim through hundreds of cow sharks and Cape fur seals. Unlike most other snorkeling spots, at Hout Bay, you’ll get to interact with these seals in their entirely own environment and their entirely own terms. They are incredibly playful, and you’ll have a great time with them.
In case you’re a newbie who isn’t confident about snorkeling alone, you can always try for a guided tour. Hout Bay has several group tours for snorkeling enthusiasts that are usually guided by a trained expert. These experts will help you charter the deep blue sea which is home to more than 5000-8000 seals. The seals are curious and playful, and they’ll be more than just happy to interact with you. Like Pyramid Rock, Hout Bay too is open for snorkeling throughout the year.
This is yet another excellent snorkeling spot for the ones who are looking to dive into the chilly waters of False Bay. As evident from the name, Shark Bay is primarily famous for Sharks, and you’ll find hundreds of Cow sharks here. The place is available for free diving, but since it is located in the Castle Rock Marine Protected Area, you’ll need a prior permit for free diving here.
The Sharks are usually active from September to December. So this spot is ideal for winter snorkeling. In case you’re a newbie who’s afraid of swimming with the sharks, fret not, for cow sharks are not considered to be dangerous. The area boasts excellent marine life, but at times, the shore access can be a bit too tricky. So if you’re just getting started with underwater adventures, we’d recommend you to visit this spot with an expert.
WindMill Beach probably one of the most popular and incredibly beautiful spots for snorkeling. Located in the western part of False Bay and the eastern part of the Cape Town, this beach opens an entirely new world of marine adventures. This beach is widely popular for its fish, cow sharks and seals. But even with these wide varieties of aquatic species, it is the beautiful coral reefs that steal the show! The reefs are usually present near the granite boulders, along with the eastern part of the beach.
Located right next to Boulders Beach, WindMill Beach is an ideal spot for both newbies and experienced snorkelers. Although you can visit the beach anytime during the year, we’d specifically recommend you to visit it on a calm day. This is primarily because the waves of the southeastern winds can make you feel like you’ve been in a mangler.
The Old Harbor in Hermanus
The Old Harbor in Hermanus is probably one of the biggest attractions of this otherwise quaint town. As you delve into the deep blue seas, you’ll get a chance to see the Southern Right Whales. And guess what? If you’re lucky enough, you’ll also get to hear them. In addition to Whales, this place also boasts a wide range of Kelp and other varieties of fish. Accessing the harbor is pretty straightforward, and although it is open throughout the year, we’d recommend you to visit during the winter and spring months.
If you’re looking to dive into the chilly waters of the Atlantic, Sandy Cove is yet another snorkeling spot that’ll perfectly cater to your requirements. This cute little bay is located just around the northern corners of the Twelve Apostles Hotel, and it also serves as an entry point for the ones looking to dive at Oudrekraal. With its steep shore access, reaching out to this bay can be slightly difficult. But once you do manage to find the point, you’ll love it for the adventure it offers you. The bay is teeming with kelp forests and a wide variety of smaller fishes. This snorkeling point, albeit excellent, is exposed to the North Western winds. So if you’re planning to visit the spot anytime soon, we’d recommend you to visit here during the summer months.
Located in Simons Town, this is yet another spot which is perfectly calm and quaint. Owing to its relatively calm nature, this beach also invites regular swimmers in addition to the snorkeling enthusiasts who dive in, to catch a glimpse of the cow sharks, kelps, and coral reefs. This is beach is open for snorkeling throughout the year.
