FS Indoor Nationals 2017

With the weather back on our side, the team shuffling has begun and the season of training for Nationals begins once more.

As you plan and train, don't forget that South African Indoor Nationals in FS Open will be held at the Bodyflight World Challenge again in 2017. The more support we get from SA teams, the closer we get to adding in the non-FAI categories and to hosting our own independent event.

For Intermediate and Novice 4-way teams, the Challenge has Rookie, A and AA categories in 4-way so there really is a competition for every level. It's a great experience, loads of fun and an opportunity to meet, watch and learn from the world best skydivers. So even if we have no indoor SA Nationals for you yet, the competition is a not-to-be-missed event and important training tool.

So add indoor to your team plans and join us at the Bodyflight Challenge, 6-9 April 2017. More details here.

Garth goes pro

This year has seen some great achievements from South African flyers, and we're really excited at the announcement of yet another. Garth Lewis started skydiving with us in South Africa and at his first tunnel camp found his true love: body flight. He left South Africa about 3 years ago to pursue a career as a tunnel instructor, first in England and then in Bahrain when Gravity Indoor Skydiving was built there a year ago. 

Garth has just been selected onto Gravity Indoor Skydiving's first professional Dynamic Flying 2-way team, with Ben Roane from the USA. They will attend their first competition early next year and we wish them the best of luck in the Team Gravity.

Looking for freefly tunnel coaching?  Why not contact Garth at Gravity Indoor Skydiving and arrange a trip out to to Bahrain
