Lack of professionalism and coordination on top management (Rob and Dylan) I felt used for my time, money and enthusiasm to be there... I had to wait on other people that showed after I did and who where allowed to go on 2 or more rounds of paragliding...everyone else on staff seemed nice otherwise..if you decide to go paraglide with...

If I could give Eagle Paragliding a 0, I would. We traveled from over a 1000 miles away to spend two weeks with Eagle getting our P-2 certification. We exchanged multiple emails and phone calls with Rob Sporrer to ensure that all logistics were set up and that instructors would be ready and available. Unfortunately for us, we invested over...

I spent about two weeks with Eagle Paragliding last month, in January 2015. I cannot go another day without posting a review as I was amazed at the overall quality of instruction, staff, and training grounds. Prior to heading out to California I had only taken two days of ground kiting lessons a few years back when I was visiting... More

Eagle Paragliding is one of the top West Coast Paragliding Schools and you can train at Elings Park located in Santa Barbara, then advance to flying in the mountains or along the ocean cliffs. Rob Sporer is a fantastic guy who also leads paragliding tours to exotic locations around the world. A very safe, caring and skilled group for solo... More

I'm a 25 year Hang Glider Pilot, with about a 10 year break, now going into Paragliding. Additionally, I have taught hang gliding in the past and have worked with another paragliding instructor last year for one lesson in Malibu, CA. THAT, was a poor experience! I talked to Rob, who I found on the Internet. I explained my experience,... More

I went to Eagle Paragliding expecting to be sitting in a classroom all day before we actually got to paraglide but we got to learn the basics from the instructors outdoors in the park overlooking the ocean. Groups were small enough that you could ask questions and everyone felt very comfortable with the paraglide before we were even asked if... More

Words cannot describe well enough the first time I experienced "free flight" off the training hill at Eagle paragliding. The staff gave me careful instruction and training for the first couple of hours on the basics of paragliding and how the equipment is properly used. Then I launched off the hill for my first flight! I found the entire experience... More
