I lacked the experience to use the altitude to be able to fly to the beach. Certainly one of my mistakes was to fly almost to the Ifonche instead of staying above the Taucho and using the altitude to land on the beach. I was blown back due to my misjudgment and overconfidence. After a soft touchdown I was knocked off by a strong gust of wind. Sustained partial damage of shoulder ligament by hitting a sharp rock.
Paragliding is an adventurous as well as dangerous sport. The same goes with Powered Paragliding(PPG) and hang gliders. Things can GO Wrong no matter what. Paragliders end in water landing. Factors contributing in Paragliding, hang gliding and paramotor include human factors as well as the forces of nature. Paragliding, Speedflying, Acro Paragliding, Paramotor, Hang Gliding, powered paragliding and hike & fly give great flying experience but they also pose greater risks including injury or at worst loss of life.
This video does not cover fatal accidents. Prime purpose is to understand the forces of nature and any mistakes to learn from. Many respected pilots shared their mistakes so that other pilots can learn about them and avoid them.
