Patience is rewarded in paragliding, explained Lam, a university lecturer and youth counselor who brought three novices and heavy equipment on a 40-minute mountain trail hike last month, with the group waiting two hours in the winter chill for the weather to turn.Paragliding has steadily caught on, Lam said, from just a few dozen pilots a few years ago to some 200 active members today.Hong Kong has eight approved flying areas for paragliding.
