This is not skydiving but….

This is not skydiving but this guy offers us a perfect lesson about positive attitude towards the learning process, wich is sometimes one of the most difficult things to learn but absolutely necessary for an efficient progression. Something that everybody should keep in mind when you fuck up a move in the tunnel or do a bad job during a jump. Stay positive and try harder !!!

Voss Ventus

Our friends, Voss Ventus, the team who won the Battle of Bottrop asked Andreas Johannessen to film and edit a video clip from them training. The result is one of the best tunnel video I saw, with a perfect balance beetwen high flying skill, professionnel production and great understanding of the sport !!!

Winter time: such a boring life !!!

Additional information:

All the camps in Bottrop are one on one coaching. Except the 12th/16th december: It’s just before the Battle of Bottrop,  so this camp is dedicated to do some 4way with Havard, Raph and Juju (4speed) my team mates for the battle.

The camps in Eloy will be in collaboration with Håvard, Petter Jönsson and Matt Hill (Krystal). This is a mixed tunnel and skydive camp. The plan is to do some “Nordic Meet” kind of flying: no holding hands 🙂 Only 8 slots per camp: one coach for two students !!! more info here.

St Petersburg:
in November: one on one coaching, contact Bjørnar Knutsen for more info
in march: one on one coaching but I’ll be there with Håvard, so dynamic 4way is possible.

Feel free to write me for whatever you want: more info, more dates or just to say Hello.

Håvard and Alex awesome trip….. again

Few weeks ago me and Håvard went to the Ukraine to visit our friend Dima, to learn how to surf….. I know there is no sea or ocean in Ukraine but there is no dropzone in Bottrop and it’s definitely one of the best place to learn how to skydive. Wake surf is to surf what wind tunnel is for skydive! A specific boat creates a wave big enough to surf, you start with a rope and as soon as you can, you drop the rope and follow the boat. Absolutely awesome… we can surf !!! Huge thanks to Dima, or BoDhima as we now call him, for a epic visit in Kiev!

After the wake surf we went to Rumania for the TNT Brothers Boogie. When you know how skydiving works in Romania, it’s absolutely amazing to see what those brothers have managed to set up. The general freefly skill is improving and it is gonna be pretty hard to beat them when it comes to positive energy and making stuff happen. A dropzone full of potiental, and recommended destination.

Cherry on top, they organized some acrobatic flight with some world class pilot for us…. If you ever get the chance to fly an Extra plane, with preferably a Rumanian pilot, DO IT! An unforgettable experience !!!

Nordic Sequentials 2012

Just arrived in Chicago with Håvard and finally get a chance to upload the Nordic Sequentials video. Rock solid organization, good weather, the beech and a super efficient ground crew offer us a great week of skydive in my favorite scandinavian drop zone: Nasinge. We’ll be back soon for angle week 7-11 august. That gonna be mega.

Video edited by myself and projected the last day of the event.
