If you're in the US, here's a decent resource for locating a certified instructor.

Many of them also have all the gear needed to get one on their way as a beginner, so you wouldn't need to shell out a lot of money on gear until certain you wanted to go forward.

Hey, via Davis' Oz Report (linked to above), here's a great beginner primer on hang gliding.

I'll second Davis's comment on VFF KSOs working well for people with wide feet. I have 4E size 13 feet! Thats X-Wide, not just Wide! I was able to fit in a M45 KSO without any problems. Fivefingers are very accommodating when it comes to wider width feet!

If they fit your foot, you either have a badly made pair (that happens to work in your favor) or you don't have real 4E wide feet. I work at a store that carries Vibram. I haven't had one person with 4E wide feet come in the store and manage to find a pair that fit their feet without being extremely tight. What's more, if they managed to get them on, most of the time only the big toe found its way in the respective toe slot. The other toes just sat outside looking into theirs.
