Benvenuto, Welcome, Bienvenue, Bienvenido, Willkommen, Dobrodošli, ようこそいらっしゃいまし, KIAORA !!
My Name is Stefano Gigli
I was born in Rome (Italy) in 1972. As a child I was attracted by the snow-capped mountains, the clouds in the sky and the waves in the sea. I liked everything that moved in the air and when I happened to see a seagull flying without beating its wings, I dreamed of being able to do even I grew up. Following my passions i became a professional outdoor sports. Ski Instructor, Sailing instructor, Mountain Bike Guide, Stand Up Paddler, Surfer, Professional Tandem Paragliding Pilot, working in the field of Kite and Paragliding i am part of a big family, The Ozone Kite and Paragliding company..the best one in the world !
I live in New Zealand most of the time but during the summer season i'm in Europe, (Italy) in Poggio Bustone, Rienti.
"Stuff your eyes with wonder, live as if you'd drop dead in ten seconds. See the world. It's more fantastic than any dream made."
I started it to share my travels, my adventures and enterprises around the world with my friends and my Customers
I obtained great achievements during the past years but now I have chosen to work having fun, living and traveling around all the places that inspire me.
If you ask which is my favorite, the answer is "everywhere everything moves in harmony with time and nature! where I can fly and where I can, ski, sail, kite and surf!
The important thing is that you live as you like;-) spend your energy for passion, love and don't forget your dreams...
Nothing inspires me more than seeing people create the life they want.
Today I have a great desire to fly over every corner of the world and I believe that the only true limits depends from a condition of our mind.
I dream to fly high, and even if I lose the pure thermal wrapped, I never cease to fly.
I thought also to give you the opportunity to know this beautiful world and travel with me, follow this web page, and see that there are often interesting explorations to do together.
Dream fly UP !.
Your experience will become our next adventure
