I called Morningside Park and asked if they offer paragliding tandem rides. They don't because conditions are to iffy to make a business out of it. He suggested there is a guy at Burke Mountain Resort in Vermont who does it. I asked about Cape Cod and he said there's no paragliding during the summer because of nesting birds. I then Googled New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and PEI + paragliding. It doesn't look encouraging. I may have to settle to parasailing.

"Thing Explainer cover all kinds of neat stuff—including computer buildings (datacenters), the flat rocks we live on (tectonic plates), the stuff you use to steer a plane (airliner cockpit controls), and the little bags of water you’re made of (cells)."
