FlajFlaj, two weeks of phenomenal fun in the air and on the ground with 120 skydivers from all over the world! Need to say more?
Once again the one and only Peter Nilsson and his amazing crew and Skydive Elsinore put together the biggest skills camp there is. What a ride again! We jumped monday to friday up to 9 jumps a day with different groups, sick fun, sick flying. For the coaches it’s a great event, you get to fly with lot of people and the DZ makes sure everybody gets to jump a lot and every evening the coaches get to fly together for a jump or two. For the participants it is particularly interesting because the coaches line-up in amazing with many multiple world champion flyers and some of the best flyers, coaches and organisers in the world! So if you ever feel like flying a lot and want to learn new things about flying your body, you should definitely do yourself a favour and sign up for next year’s FlajFlaj!
During the weekend people spread out all over SoCal doing different things. We finally made it to one of the most legendary rock climbing spots in Unites States, Joshua Tree National Park. Joshua Tree is on the Mojave desert in Southern California and the park is named after the actual Joshua Trees. It’s almost 3200 square kilometres of desert filled with rocks, blocks, boulders and small walls of yellow, very good quality rock that makes a climber run around like a madman and wanting to climb everything. I had only shoes and a chalk bag with me and I ended up running left and right, bouldering where ever I found a nice feature to climb and solo up easy, little stuff I knew I was not gonna fall off and just generally being very exited about all the beautiful features to climb and rock to touch. Different shapes and forms of rock and the beautiful holds just makes you want to climb everywhere, touch all the soft scoops and stick your fingers into cracks. Watching the sunset in the desert from the summit and seeing the bright stars and moon come out made the experience very rich and I hope to go back soon.
