sfBAPA.org is the website of the Bay Area Paragliding Association (BAPA). Our club started in the early 1990s and has grown to be a large, active community of pilots sharing sites, knowledge, and - most importantly - lots of flying.
Our communication started with RidgeDancer, our newsletter, and attempts at a phone "bulletin board" for sharing information about when it was flyable. Various technologies have been tried for getting the word about when it's flyable to our diverse members spread throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond, but we're still trying to find the magic means for letting everyone know where to go and when.
This site is intended primarily for sharing information about longer-range plans and providing a reference to more static information. We also have been able to get our Membership database online, making it easier to join and manage the membership information. However, it was the target of a major (random) hack attack and had to be completely rebuilt from scratch in February 2012. So a lot of our reference material is only slowly being added back to the site.
Thanks for visiting, and we appreciate your patience while we get our online club back up. Meanwhile, hope to see you in the air!
