Even though Fly Awesome is a tunnel website, as it's summer and high skydiving season, we want to go a bit off topic and release an educational video about "how to pack a parachute". I had the pleasure to be able to do this with Colin, who many of you skydivers will know or have heard of. Colin allows us a little insight into his rigging loft in Empuriabrava and shares some very helpful tips on parachute packing.
This is part 1 of our project. Part 2 will be a mini series of short videos about how to avoid packing mistakes, like e.g. step throughs, how to set different types of brakes, how to activate your pilot chute correctly, etc.
Meet amazing coach Federico Rawa in this week's release. He is one of the most experienced coaches out there and from my personal view the one with the most structured approach. It's very rare to find somebody equally being a bad-ass flyer himself and also an excellent coach from the didactical skills side. Check out his view on coaching and developing yourself... He is based in Empuriabrava and if you want to develop your flying skills, be it sky or tunnel, don't miss to meet him for some super efficient and fun training.
Thanks Oana for this cool edit!

Watch this little Teaser Video from the filming with Martin. It had so much fun doing this recording :D Flying, filming, talking - and I have the feeling that every single second I learn more :-)

Proudly presenting the pilot episode of the upcoming interview series with some of the top coaches & athletes in the tunnel and skydiving sport.
We start the series with a blast: meet Raphaël Coudray, reigning World Champion in 4-WD & VFS. He gives us some insights on his thoughts on coaching, flying and a winner's attitude.
Raph is one of my favourite coaches, especially when working on technical details but also when it comes to the mental mindset - always a pleasure and always inspiring.
