Things to Do: Beginner Hang Gliding Lessons on the Sand Dunes of Jockey’s Ridge State Park (Nags Head, NC)September 27, 2014 | Maya
328th day RVing and we’re in and around the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Researching things to do in the area, hang gliding lessons was listed. Felt Wright at home with this adventure where “The Wright brothers… generally credited with inventing, building, and flying the world’s first successful airplane.” Quite honestly, learning hang gliding seems equal to the perspective of a paper airplane or how it feel to actually be the kite. LOL. Overall, if we had more time in the area, I would have signed up for their week long Hang 1 Camp but their 5 flights package was really fun.
Call us adrenaline junkies. Adventure tourism is our style of travel since we’re always on the lookout for activities that involve an element of risk. When we had recently experienced a Carolina Moonshine ride on the Great Smoky Mountain Railway, we saw an activity desk passing out brochures for a beginner-friendly white water rafting outfit in Hartford, Tennessee called "Wildwater."
What is Riverboarding?
"Riverboarding is a whitewater activity that is basically like bodyboarding meets whitewater, but on a beefier, more buoyant board. Riverboarders lay on their stomachs on their boards…" –Kevin Yount, Appalachian Riverboard Company
