Welcome to Season 2 E96 with your host: http://www.PPGGrandpa.com Sean Symons and your most awesome guest Jarrod Kaplan!
For Musician, Circus Performer, and Cannabis Entrepreneur Jarrod Kaplan, PPG has become a way of life. If the day is flyable, you will likely find Jarrod up in the air.
Originally trained by Joe Cruz at Blackhawk Paramotor in Valley Springs, CA in the Spring of 2015, Jarrod has since progressed to become a USPPA tandem-rated PPG Instructor himself; now teaching privately in and around Eugene, OR. Currently a USHPA P2 rated Paraglider, Jarrod is currently logging PG flight time for a P3 goal, kung-fu kiting, and beginning the journey into basic Acrobatic flying. He currently enjoys traveling to fly, making music-video style PPG videos, and inspiring others to get into the sport. He enjoys most of his air-time in the Pacific NW, but travels seasonally to fly in Mexico, Moab UT, and California.
Over the past few years Jarrod’s skills have grown exponentially with the help of many great PPG & PG instructors, including: Joe Cruz (Blackhawk), Rick Hallowes, Francesco DeSantis, Dan Dimov (Puerto Vallarta PPG), Steve Reed (Midwest Parajet), Jon Allan Drh Martin (Wind Pirate PPG), Fabul Harrera (Fly Adventure SIV Yelapa MX), Kevin Lee (Thermal Tracker Paragliding, Ashland, OR), and Harrison Ruffin (Astro Paragliding, Bend, OR).
