Paraglider Kiting Clinic at Kelambu Or Kalampunian Beach
To become a good Paragliders you have to learn to handle your gliders very well.  Paraglider kiting is managing and sustaining a paraglider overhead in the wind. In Europe, it's more often known as 'ground handling'. As a result of slight changes in the wind, the paraglider moves back and forth over you and provides feedback through the harness and brakes. By pulling the brakes correctly, you can balance the paraglider overhead. When you get really good at kiting, you can do it without looking at the wing. The initial key to learning paraglider kiting is lifting the wing to a straight overhead position prior to beginning. If you can consistently lift the wing to a solid overhead position, you are ready to start learning to kite. If you are not able to lift the paraglider straight consistently, you need to work on this before moving on to kiting.

A sub-group of the Kadazan-Dusun, they have a distinctive language, dress, architecture, customs, and oral literature. As with most indigenous ethnic groups in Borneo, culture revolves around rice; however, coconut and banana groves provide cash income. Women weave cloth on backstrap looms, and make containers from vine or beadwork. Many Rungus now work in town, and have abandoned the communal life of the longhouse for modern Malaysian society.  Most Rungus are 75% Christians & 15% Muslims.
