Sarnia’s Henri Podlacha tests his 40-foot paraglider at Canatara Beach last week, in a practice known as ‘kiting.’

Paragliders use thin suspension lines and air entering the wing vents to gain altitude and fly long distances without an engine.

Though the wind wasn’t strong enough for flight on this day, practice makes perfect, said Podlacha, who took up the adventure sport three years ago.
