Jacques du Plessis
Owner of Icarus Paragliding.
Jacques du Plessis, experienced a similar story at age 8, when he constructed some wings and flew off his two-storey house. Luckily, he was not injured. But this experience made Jacques want to fly even more! Later in life, he was introduced to paragliding which eventually became his career. In 2009, Jacques ranked 2nd in South Africa for Tandem Paragliding and, in 2011, he ranked number one!
Jacques and his wife, Louise, created Icarus Paragliding in 2013 and have been taking like-minded flyers on adventures around the Western Cape ever since!
