Video of the Week :: Forgotten Island

The island of Socotra is located in the Indian Ocean, just off the coasts of Yemen and Somalia. While it is an unlikely destination for paragliding, that fact couldn’t deter this group of four highly-skilled test pilots from trying their luck on remote sand dunes rugged cliffs. Much more than a film about flying, this is a story about adventure, friendship, and exploration.

Matt is a paragliding pilot and adventure seeker living full-time in a 25-foot Airstream travel trailer pulled by a Ram 2500. His love of the outdoors has driven him to explore remote destinations across North and South America in search of the most aesthetic peaks and beautiful flying sites. IG: @m.b.swartz
