I'm planing on heading south in feb. for a week and am interested in getting some free fly coaching done. I'm looking for a program versus just a few jumps. I already have an idea of where and what I want to do but am interested in hearing about others and there experiences.
Based on reputation.... I'd give the Flyboyz a call at Perris, Wicked Liquid a call in Georgia now, Olav and the Gang a call at Palm Beach or Levin in Texas. All are great coaches from everything I'v heard.
Can you be a little more specific than just south? Do you have a certain state/region in mind, or are you going JUST for the coaching and nothing else? There are many freefly schools in Florida(and the weather rocks in Feb), there are a few in SoCal(pretty damn good weather there, too), and as Phree stated, some in Texas.. Texas doesn't seem to get the consistant weather, though.. Ya know, ice storms can ruin a good jumping weekend..
southern states, it dosen't really matter I guess. I'm leaning towards arizona freeflight.
I don't think you can go wrong with AF.. The weather in AZ that time of year almost guarantees non-stop jumping, the dz has great facilities and awesome people, plus there's a lot more to do than just skydiving if you stay in AZ a few days after you finish..
If you plan to go to any of the well known schools in Florida, Arizona, or California - you should have great jumping weather and great training.. Now I'd suggest finding people that have been to the schools your considering, and get their opinions..
