How to compete in the upcoming IBA competitions at iFLY SF Bay May 15/16 or iFLY Seattle May 22/23?
If you are looking to have some fun in the tunnel, competing and training for a competition is it!
Here some helpful tips for flyers that are new to competing.
If you are looking for a team-mate of similar skill level, add your name here to find one. SF Bay: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AiJMfRRLYGHXdFFZc2JZSjE2QWxPSTNHYUVMb2pqZFE#gid=0 Seattle: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AiJMfRRLYGHXdGp5aFhmUWlKdnliaGZEMkdOc3dhTlE#gid=0
Nothing accelerates learning faster than training for a competition regardless of skill level. If you don’t have a team-mate either find one following the links above or just compete in Neo-Freestyle. The IBA rules are very close to the official “International Air Sports Federation” (FAI) rules, so our tunnel competitions are a great way to get experience for USPA Nationals or even international competitions.
We have recently created a “How-to” video on putting together routines for Freefly and Neo-Freestyle and will create more for 2-way VFS to explain the dive-pools.
