It's an interesting and funny sport. I have tries it, loooooong time ago. At the same time when I was riding an air-balloon over south Australia, I also tried this and went on a 3 days canoeing down a side-river of Darling River at Tilpa.

Air balloons are fun, but a flight on a hang glider, flying like a bird, the silence with only the rush of air across your face, it's a magical experience.
