Carlos Gomez

Carlos discovered paragliding at 16. While on a rock climbing trip, Carlos met a paragliding instructor and traded his climbing harness for a course of paragliding instruction! He has never looked back since, and for many years has been an accomplished international competitor and the GIN distributor for Venezuela. Carlos intends to continue for many years to come—although when he reaches 90 years old, he plans to devote himself to something else, like base jumping!

Resides: Oripoto, Caracas (Venezuela) with his wife and son
