Matt laid out his wing on the grass next to the path and landed in the same spot laying his wing back down on the grass. Jim Black was the tow operator with his first experience towing PG.

I get much higher surface tows on PG than HG.  And since PGs excel on climbing up on smaller and lighter thermals, surface towing PG on days when the mountains aren't launchable might be a feasible way to get up and stay up in the air. I heard down in South Jersey, PG pilots have gone XC on surface tow.

How do we go about getting USHPA skill  “Surface Tow Launch” for paragliders?
