We consider all our sponsors to be an intricate part of the Parahawking team and instrumental to it's development and success.
If you would like to be part of the Parahawking team and become a sponsor, please contact us .
Paragliding companies the world over are continually striving to produce more technologically advanced paragliding equipment and GIN Gliders are no exception. GIN are considered to be one of the market leaders in Paraglider design and manufacturer and it's this forward thinking attitude that inspired Gin Seek Song, GIN's owner to fully support Parahawking by becomming it's official sponsor.
Since the formation of this unique association GIN has provide me with the latest gliders and harness' including the very latest in the GIN line. It's due to this level of support that I am able to continue the Parahawking project, push the boundaries, experiment with new birds and really take Parahawking to the next level.
It also means that I can continue to use Parahawking to push the message of Bird of Prey conservation in Asia and the world over. As Paragliders, we should all have an understanding and respect for the birds of which we share the skies as without them the air that we fly in will be a lonely place.
Because of Gin I was able to use Parahawking to assist the RSPB (Royal Society for the Protection of Birds) and BCN (Bird Conservation Nepal) in highlighting a serious problem in Asia involving the rapid decline of many Vulture species.

They supply a whole ranger of leather and leather related goods. Their moto, which says it all, is simple "For people that make, mend or adapt things out of leather".
