Into the Wind in Southern California

Amelia Earhart once said, “Adventure is worthwhile in its self.”  This belief, along with our shared attitudes about altitude, encouraged me to try the engine-free flight options in southern California.

The entire southern coast offers numerous ways to fly into the wind.
