Where I live (Scotland) it's unregulated, but we made a documentary short about a guy nuts enough to try and dive straight into it. Most people have a background with some combination of skydiving/paragliding/kitesurfing.
Globally the rules (and the level of enforcement) vary pretty wildly.
That was an awesome watch! That looks like so much fun.
