Freefly tunnel training Can't Post

I'm thinking of taking a month off work this summer to learn how to freefly with the goal of filming tandems..

Who would be a good coach and which tunnel? I'm not too interested in California... I'm from there so when I travel back to the states I'd like to go somewhere other than home.

Cheers for any tunnel and coach suggestions!

Joe Winters, and I hear he's at the new tunnel in Raeford, NC.

And I don't think the goal of filming tandems is the right reason to learn freeflying, but whatever floats your boat.

Thanks i'll look him up..

I would rather improve my camera with freeflying and that does float my boat! I very rarely fun jump..

I'm curious, In your boat... Why would I want to learn freeflying?

Cheers

I was thinking that Tandem Camera is not something that requires much freeflying.


And of course the best reason to learn to freefly in the tunnel or otherwise, is because it's fun.Smile

one of the first things thaught to me by my mate and instructor, a guy with 11'000+ skydives: "whereever skydiving takes ya': its ALWAYS FUN!!"
out of this enormous number, about 6'000 were tandems..

the best skydiver is not the guy turning the most points, its the guy having the most fun!

I'm sure he had a Baby or is about to..... Congrats if it's the former.

So my guess is he's been at home as much as possible.

Joe,

You'll have to excuse Justin....He has ADD, unless your talking about skydiving.

Congrats on your new addition.

If you're heading to North Carolina, another excellent freefly instructor would be Mick Nuttle. Have fun.
