Hang gliding at Dockweiler State Beach has a long history dating back to the earliest days of the sport. It is a training facility that also provides excellent dune soaring for the more advanced pilot.
[http://www.rogallohanggliders.com/JimHobson/index.html Jim Hobson in 1962 with "Rogallo Wing Hang Glider" (EAA editor), then Richard Miller and friends, and then saving grace activism of Joe Greblo brought a gem to California in the resultant official flight training site.
The dune faces to the west and south west which is the prevailing directions for the on shore breeze. This provides 300+ flyable days year.
Windsports manages all hang gliding activity at the site. Unsupervised flying is strictly prohibited and jeopardizes the site.
