Sunday evening, Bas on the telephone;
Bas: "he man how are you doing? I am on my way back
from Brienne France I've been flying the whole week.
K-J: "Cool men wish I could be there with you cause
its time for another skydive adventure, when is the next event?"
Bas: Next event is this week, Texel freefly extravaganza,
it starts wednesday, you should come with me..."
The freefly extravaganza was organized by Paracentre Texel. Marco Tiezzi one of worlds best skydivers and personal friend
of Bas was invited there to give Atmonauti clinics together with Gigliola Borgnis, (parents of the Atmonauti style!!!).
As soon as
Marco heared that I was in for an atmonauti tandem he became even more
enthousiastic than he allready was.
Atmonauti is not just skydiving, the technic allowes you to really "fly"
so you will have more air time before you open the canopy. In tandem it
is even possible to go without drogue (breakchute which is normally required
to reduce your speed) Super cool!! As Marco sais, "Why fall when
we can fly"
Thursday morning would be the day. Cause its more fun to jump with a group
we found some guys who wanted to jump allong. Beside Bas and Marco, there
were Gigliola (Top of the world, also atmonaut creator), Peter Leemijer
en Erwin BJ who joined us. With four videocams and a photocam the footage
was secure. After some instructions from Marco about the flying technics
and the way to hold my body and arms we took off to go to 15.000ft (specially
for us, 5km) for one hell of an amazing flight.
to Marco, Bas, Gigliola, Peter, Erwin and off-course Paracentre Texel
for making this happen.
