Handicapped or not, let's go paragliding in a wheelchair!

Extreme sports video alert!

We were lucky to pull up to this scenic viewpoint just on the edge of Polipoli State Park in Kula Maui one day, as the paragliders were getting ready to launch.  They get in position and pop their kites up so fast you can blink and miss it.  Luckily I was ready with my iPhone camera for this guy as he got ready.  With some help from his buddy he got positioned, and off he went into the clouds!  You won't catch me doing that!

Paragliding by Polipoli State Park on Maui from Georgie Hunter on Vimeo.

Wow - that's pretty extreme. 

If you're looking for some action like this, head up to Polipoli Springs State Park in Kula on a clear day before it's gets clouded up.  It's a long drive and you'll end up way above the clouds, so bring some warm clothing.

If you're looking for a home for sale in Kula, search the Maui MLS here.

Thanks for reading my Maui blog...
