The view, the pilot, just the entire experience was awesome. And I mean it in the text book meaning of the word.
1. inspiring an overwhelming feeling of reverence, admiration, or fear; causing or inducing awe: an awesome sight  or experience. “

Richard “first of all, it was awesome with you guys!

I arrived in Cape Town 3 days before this flight and my girlfriend told me Santa Claus is waiting for me in Cape Town. 

I had no clue what’s going on and how Santa could handle it without snow. Then we drove to Lion’s Head and five minutes before we arrived i slowly figured out what she was talking about. Santa Claus could fly, and I have to fly with him. I was totally excited and a little bit scared but Santa – or Jacques – was such a nice guy I relaxed a little! Walking to our starting point I slowly realized that I’d have to jump off this mountain with these stunning views of Cape Town and the Ocean. Whoop, a few seconds later I was up in the air and totally breathless. Wow, amazing, awesome, wonderful, stunning, crazy! Maybe I used all the words I know and invented some more 😉

Now I can say, i flew with Santa Claus. Thanks for this wonderful experience! ” 

Lisa on behalf of her boyfriend Jan who paraglided from Lions Head “They really loved it and couldn´t stop telling us how wonderful it was 🙂  Merry Christmas to all of you!”
