Max Marian - acro pilot from California, USA

A report and interview by Karina Gomez:

Max Marien was born in beautiful San Diego, California in 1988. Living in Southern California, he quickly learned to surf, snowboard and paraglide. He has been paragliding since he was 12 (half of his life) and works at Torrey Pines Gliderport as a flight instructor. He works with students and does tandems for a living. Needless to say, he loves his job.
