Paramotering is a welcome relief, blowing the heat from my skin as I look over the cliffs of Bangalore. I am ready. I lean my chest deeply into the gentle wind, throw my arms up and let my feet leave the ground. Empty space opens up beneath my toes but, rather than fall, I allow myself to fly. My childhood dreams of soaring across blue skies are reality. My new bird's eye view reveals a spectacular coral reef meeting a roaring surf break.

One of the greatest draws to this adventure sport is its accessibility. While most people believe it's a pastime only suited to adventure junkies, it is actually a gentle sport that is easy to learn and something that anybody with an adventurous spirit can take up. It doesn't matter if you are tall, short, light, heavy, strong, weak or even slightly disabled, chances are you can still fly a paramoterist.
