Schaffen Belgium, Invitational Flocking weekend Can't Post

We just had a great weekend of flying with a small group of UK, Belgium and Dutch wingsuit flyers (Spike & Jackie, Paul & Elana, Costyn, Eli, Hans, Bassie, Bavo, Bart, Benoit and myself).

After most people spent the last 3,5 weeks traveling through-out Europe to boogies in Soulac (FR), Gap (FR) and Siofok (Hungary) we managed to squeeze in one last weekend of fun flocks.

We did 9 group jumps with a lot of fun point flying. Im working on a full video with both inside and outside views, but couldnt resist already showing one of our fun jumps by posting the rough video to my YouTube

Enjoy! More later!
Thanks to all peeps who came this weekend!

p.s. Not my packjobTongue

Very entertaining! I'm loving the multi-point flocks and the backflying.

The full video is coming soon.

That was a weak throw (if you can even call it a throw) at the end of that video.

Jackie, Spike and my teammates had asked me to make a video of their jumps. Shame I couldn't make it. Sure looks like you guys had fun. Smile

That is what backflying is supposed to be ...

Agreed. Bavo and Spike are awesome backfly base flyers. I hope one day I'll get to their level, but doubt it. Smile

grap ... *miss* ... grap, hold, release. I'm not a thrower. Unimpressed
I rarely throw my pilotchute. I never thought about it. It's always in one motion and never had any problems. so I think it's in my system now. Maybe I'm gonna work on it. Smile

I would work on throwing it. There are plenty of videos of what can happen when you just release it in a wingsuit ...

I'll say this, Spike picked up backflying quickly.
