For more than a year AK & I spoke about the idea of creating an annual event that caters exclusively to high level flyers and coaches. An event to push those who are usually in the role of pushing others. To collectively raise the skill level at the high end – We believe this to be something that can add real value by flowing down through the community to all levels of flyers – Something to inspire and motivate everyone.
To have so many high level free flyers and coaches in one place, flying for consecutive days with focus and direction, really being pushed, was something special.
In 2015 I was fortunate enough to be involved in the very first Downunder Dynamics camp organised by Mason Corby. Mason gathered together a group of experienced flyers from all over Australia. To have so many high level free flyers and coaches in one place, flying for consecutive days with focus and direction, really being pushed, was something special. There was a real energy and momentum built off that event. I have been told by many people that the video from the first Downunder Dynamics was a real inspiration and motivation for their journey. It was really good to have an event like this in Australia.
Traditionally for someone who really wants to be challenged and learn the latest flying techniques the best option was to travel overseas to events like Fly4Life and Angleweek. But with the momentum and sheer number of up and coming flyers in Australia right now, there really is an incredible opportunity to create something special, something that will hopefully run for many years to come.
… and so FLOW was born.
We had a vision for the group, the type of jumps and the location we wanted and to see it all come together was deeply satisfying. A huge amount of gratitude to everyone involved.
FLOW 2020 will be September 22-26 @ Skydive Oz, Moruya. See you there!
