Look no further when it comes to an SIV/Acro course. Not only are you learning from 3 of the best pilots in the sport but you're flying at one of the best flying sites in the world! Think Lewis Hamilton being your driving instructor type levels. On top of the 3 instructors there is the fantastic team on the mountain of Blaise and Twitty on take off, calming any nerves and assisting with takeoffs. There's also the legends driving you up the mountain as well as the lovely team in the Magic Tulip Beach Hotel. All around class team!I couldn't recommend these guys highly enough if you're looking to get into the sport like I am (from a paramotoring background) or looking to further develop your acro skills. My knowledge and skills went through the roof over the week and now I've come out the other side a far more confident pilot.Just an epic 2 weeks and I will be back. Cheers RISE Team!

Can’t recommend highly enough! I’ve been flying occasional acro for years and was maybe just feeling a bit like progress was plateauing. Great coaching from the RISE team, just what I needed. there is so much I’ve taken away from these few days. Subtle changes in how to visualise manoeuvres and critique footage that have really tidied up stuff I thought I was doing ok at, to getting pushed enough to try new things and actually getting my head round them. Corks and Jokers unlocked!!Obviously these guys can fly to an incredible level but their ability to spot how to improve and give a few things to think about to make it achievable is really amazing.Overall experience great- Blaise and Twitty sorting out the best take off conditions and super nice vibe. If training Acro they will do their best to let you get some extra free runs in, think I managed 6 in a day while on the course.
Rise is simply the best paragliding school there is! They deserve more than 5 stars, for sure. Great professionals in every aspect: expertise, organization, training methodology, clarity of briefings, and overall atmosphere. I'm a vacation/weekend pilot, curious of acro but not really athletic or competitive - and the program was adjusted so well to my learning pace and skills, that I progressed to heli in a week and enjoyed every try. And I'm definitely coming back this year and will recommend Rise without any doubts

RISE exceeded all expectations! Hands down the best tution, course, organisation and pilot progression I've experienced in over a decade of flying. This is a must and will become a yearly pilgrimage as I continue to invest in my flying. See you there!

The RISE team are not only fantastic pilots themselves (some of the best acro pilots in the world), they are brilliant coaches. They will keep you safe and ensure you benefit the most out of your time with them. ENJOY!

My second trip to Oludeniz to see the Rise team and all I can say is that I will be going back again and again and again... The team, comprised of Jack, Theo, Cesar, Blaise and Twitty go above and beyond covering all bases to ensure your time spent with them is nothing less than incredible. The instructors assess and debrief each pilot individually which really helps maximise the time spent on the course, and their passion for this sport shines through in everything they do. Thank you team x

Rise Paragliding is the company to hire for SIV/Acro training. They’re organized, professional, experienced, deliberate, and caring. I appreciated their front-end training for reserve parachute use, their launch support team, their briefings & debriefings, the HD video they take of your flight from the ground so you don’t have to wear a GoPro, their expert coaching, and the close out talk regarding post-SIV safety. At every turn, they’ve sought to perfect the business of teaching maneuvers in the safest, most efficient, and most enjoyable way.

You would literally have to be INSANE to take an Acro or SIV course with anybody else…Jack and Théo are the best at what they do and there is no one you’d rather have with you on launch than Blaise. The RISE team is absolutely phenomenal - I wouldn’t take a course with anyone else!

RISE, is by far, the best SIV/Acro course on the market. The course is tailored to each individual for maximum confidence and progression. I am definitely a customer for life. Thèo, Jack, and Blaise are so kind and caring, and really listen to their students, and do everything they can to make sure teach person obtains everything they can and want from the course.

These guys are the best in the business, highly professional, great coaches and always up for a laugh too! Cannot recommend Rise paragliding highly enough. Amazing instruction with full briefs on all manoeuvres, coupled with video footage & analysis after each flight. Brilliant course, brilliant people and felt that it really progressed my flying & understanding of how to safely control my wing, whilst pushing me in areas that I needed to be pushed. Will 100% be returning to RISE for future training! Jack, Theo and Blaise are your guys and I’m already looking forward to next years course! Thanks again for an awesome week.

The best Pilot trading I’ve ever experienced! Rise Paragliding is the best SIV/Acro training in the world! I can’t believe how much of a better pilot I’ve become thanks to RISE! Theo, Jack, and Blaise are providing something really special!

RISE is top-notch!The coaching is technical and thorough, both before and after the flights. When I had trouble with a particular technique, Theo deftly switched to others, until he found one that worked for me (and my glider) - all this was in-flight. During my courses, I was coached through several new tricks, giving me the basis for starting to perform them on my own. I even had the thrill of experiencing Infinite, getting several rotations on my last flight.Safety is also well-considered by RISE. Amidst the sometimes-chaotic scenes at launch, Blaise was instrumental in finding each pilot a launch slot and getting us safely into the air.Finally, RISE also had the integrity to honor my reservation for almost two years, during which different COVID-related circumstances prevented me from being able to attend.I will definitely return to RISE!Remember, it is not the number of training flights, but the quality of each that truly matters.Rick Farrington

Amazing SIV course in Oludeniz. Very organized, I felt safe the whole time. The paragliding manouvers were tailored to my specific skill level and debriefs were very insightful. I will definitely be back! I'd recommend RISE courses to every paraglider pilot no matter your skill level.
