A Different Perspective Of Hawaii Life

It is laidback to see why Hawaii has become equal with paradise. Just look at these sweet beaches, beautiful coral reefs and picture perfect volcanoes signaling daring souls. 

Photographs of these islands dispersed in a baby blue ocean are wonderful, without the need for any tourist catalog exaggeration. The sunrises and the sunsets are so impressive and stunning that they are cause for festival all by themselves. As tropical vacations and getaways go, Hawaii could not be cooler or more worth the journey, although visiting these lovely islands is not always inexpensive. Whether you are fantasizing about swimming in waterfall pools or learning how to swim in the beautiful oceans or tanning on golden sand beaches of Maui, you will find what your heart desires here in Hawaii.

On the day of my first vacation in Hawaii with Miss Natalie, we landed in Oahu pretty much pennilessly,  and with my Samsonite suitcase lost in the airport world of planes and terminals. We camped romantically on the beach, pulled fresh organic guava from trees above our blankets and spent days hiking in Oahu. When it comes to Hawaii, I will always be ready to go, just hand me my sandals and board shorts. Of course the sunblock and it has to be SPF 55 because she deserves nothing less.

What are types of outdoor activities for Hawaii?

Hawaii IS life outdoors. Whether it's surfing, swimming, fishing or paragliding in Hawaii, parasailing in Hawaii, skydiving in Hawaii, bungee jumping in Hawaii, with family, friends or Miss Natalie, meetings with the environment are filled with the customary Hawaiian significance of aloha – love and respect for the land.

But nothing really compares to hang gliding in Hawaii. From the experience Natalie and I had 5000 feet above ground.

What is Hawaiian Hang Gliding?

Hang gliding in Hawaii is an air sport in which the pilot flies a lightweight no motor airplane called a hang glider. Most contemporary hang gliders are produced of an aluminum frame with artificial sail cloth to create the wing. You, the pilot, are entrenched in a harness adjourned from the frame, and control it by fluctuating body weight in resistance to a control frame, but other procedures, including contemporary aircraft flight control systems, may be used in steering the hang glider in Hawaii.

What Spots Are Best For Hang Gliding In Hawaii?

The great part about Hawaii is that the options are so vast for hang gliding when it comes to locations and scenic views of landscapes. Natalie and I really did not have much money to go travel far for another spot to hang glide. We were stuck in Oahu, so we had to just glide there but it’s just as perfect and breathtaking as any other spot in paradise. Besides hang gliding in Oahu, the hang gliding in Maui is highly noted as one of the best places to hang glide in Hawaii, as well as the hang gliding in Honolulu and the Big Island.
