Welcome to Parafreedom Air Sports the only paragliding school on the Texas Gulf Coast.
Do you snow ski, water ski, scuba dive or enjoy other outdoor activities?  Are you ready for something new and are 16 years old to 75 years young?
Have you like many people always wanted to fly but couldn't afford the expense of general aviation training?  Maybe this is for you - an aircraft that will fit into the back of your car.
Explore paragliding and soar for hours like a hawk on columns of rising air or ride the waves of air running along hill and mountain tops.  In the flatlands you'll tow up and release to search the air free flight.  In mountain areas you'll launch from slopes to ridge soar or go cross country seeking thermals.
Do you have land you'd like to explore?  How about growing up wondering what was on the other side of those trees or wondering where the best duck ponds and fishing holes were.
Ranchers,  do have cattle to look for and fences to check?   Do you wonder what wildlife your lease lands hold but don't want to spend the money for helicopter surveys?   If yes to these questions then maybe you want to look into Powered Paragliding.

Super Fly and Bud Wruck's Parafreedom have been partners for years.. . It doesn't take long to see what kind of person Bud is; a look at Bud's students tells the whole story. They are all first class people. Bud always reminds us that his Houston area outfit is just Super Fly south. We are flattered that he thinks of us as his counterpart and we always look forward to our next Super Fly/ Parafreedom event.

In the words of Dave Crocket: Yall can go to hell, I am going with Parafreedom!
