A magical experience you will cherish for years to come.

Truly there is, nothing else like flying.

LESSONS

Knowledge is Power

        I’ve been providing instruction at a number of element & wind driven adrenaline sports 
for most of my adult life and enjoy helping people to learn.


I am an HPAC certified paragliding instructor with tandem rating. I have been flying since 2014. 
I am also a certified windsurfing & kiteboarding instructor and have taught windsurfing since 1987 and kiteboarding since 2004 and
have also taught both skiing & snowboarding professionally.


Whether you’re looking to practice on your own, improve a specific skillset, or are interested in learning from the beginning,
feel free to contact me with any questions.

       I have instructor alliances in several locations and am happy to collaborate with other instructors.

In fact I encourage it!
I believe as a student it is optimal to have a broader understanding from many sources and 
perspectives, to more clearly understand, integrate & apply learning principles.

To that end, I will collaborate with several schools & locations.
 

I travel to teach and to fly!

Guaranteed Success

I know how difficult it can be to find a reliable teacher that focuses on what you need. Instructors need to be able to motivate and guide students towards success. Its is not so much about teaching as facilitating learning.

 

As an experienced and passionate instructor, my approach gives students positive, constructive reinforcement. I design my lessons according to my students’ needs, with an emphasis on confidence-boosting activities & skill drills that emphasize muscle memory, so that ultimately you will instinctively know what do. 

Exceptional Progress

I specialize in a variety of lesson plans, and know how to reach my students with the right balance of personalized attention, patience, practical training, and positive encouragement. 

It’s easier to learn when you’re having fun & I make learning fun, through a variety of engaging and progressive practical skill building skills to make flying safely & second nature, as you progress.

Rewarding Results

     As an instructor in various adventure sport disciplines including skiing & snowboarding, as well as wind powered sports like windsurfing, kiteboarding & sailing. Between these different but related sports I have introduced literally hundreds of folks to adrenaline and sports fuelled by natures elements.

Flying is a natural progression thru the sport of paragliding. 

 

I’ve provided the tools and guidance needed to help all of my students excel naturally at what they do.

 

Take advantage of the vast professional experience & enthusiasm I bring to coaching, and the associate instructors and tandem pilots I have aligned myself with.

I loved it! I'm already a licensed P2 paragliding pilot, and flying a tandem flight with Sunchaser/Rod was a fun & informative flight that shifted my own flying, showed me more possibilities and increased my confidence & flying knowledge. Espescially in regard to learning how to fly thermals. 

I took my daughter & I for a sunset flight at Pemberton with Rod & his pilot friend, Guy Herrington from Sea to Sky Paragliding . A truly amazing & inspiring experience, beautiful colours, serene buoyant air. I felt totally relaxed and confident with Sunchaser Paragliding. 

A fun experience at Mt Woodside. We were able to climb up higher in the thermals than where we launched from and fly with my friends at the same time and soar with birds. 
What a
view!
