Adventure travelers learn to hang glide off the sand dunes at Jockey's Ridge State Park in NC's Outer Banks. The popular air sport attracts individuals who want to soar and glide over the sandy beach. People new to the sport can learn at such hang glide schools as the Kitty Hawk Kites' Hang Gliding Training Center, one of the largest hang gliding school in the world. Persons with USHGA Hang 1 or other agency-approved rating cards may hang glide on the ridge as well.
