Load organising will be present, with 3 different groups (2x intermediate, and 1x expert group) allowing everyone to learn and be challenged at his or her own skill level.
The day will be spent doing smaller formations. Depending on which group you are flying in. more points and different flight levels.
The last 2 jumps of the day we will put groups together, and throughout the week, progress to bigger and bigger formations. Multiple plane loads are possible, if the group (thats you!) and the flying during the day shows everyone is up for bigger jumps.
We'll also be experimenting a bit with (sunset) traveling flocks. Smaller flocks (free/no slots) with an experienced flyer as base, making nicely carving/turning tracks across the sky at slowly altering speeds and angles (bring smokes if you got em!).
David haygarth (Birdman Topgun), Alejandro Lopez and Jarno Cordia (Team Fly Like Brick) will be load organising with resident EmpuriaBrava wingsuit pilot Gustavo Cabana shooting additional video and stills on all jumps.
A video will be released online after the event.
1 on 1 coaching We will also have additional 1 on 1 coaches present for people with no/low flocking experience, who will jump/coach at slot-price.
All coaching fees besides your coach' slot are covered in the boogie registration. So also an oppertunity for those seeking some coaching. We'll have different level coaches available, depending on what you want to learn and do.
special jumps & altitude More info on this one soon...
Flocking apartments Next to the DZ's nice but cheap bunkhouse rooms, Skydive Empuriabrava is offering shared apartments at walking distance from the dropzone. These apartments include TV, kitchen and living room, and will be home to wingsuit pilots attending the event. This means the nights are there for sharing video and talking about wingsuits and everything related, to flying 'till deep in the night, accompanied by Spanish beer and cheap pizza.
If you want to sign up for the "flockapartments", send an email to the office at Empuriabrava, telling them you want to reserve an apartment bed (2 people per room) at "Maurici Park" for the wingsuit event. The website of Skydive EmpuriaBrava also lists many other nice appartments in the town.
Entertainment and parties More info on this one soon...
Raffle and Prizes More info on this one soon...
Cost Event registration: 30 euros (subject to small changes, due to additions/special jumps/raffle/sponsors)
