Sandra is from Düsseldorf and Janine from Cologne – so the tunnel camp on February 9th till 11th had to be dedicated to carneval! Our awesome coach Sven joined in as the „Dompteur“ of the SKYNAMITE „Wild Cats“. What a blast 🙂
Her real name is Carola Fietz – but the skydiving community knows her since 1992 as „Caro“. If she is not touring the world as flight attendant Caro will be found skydiving (4-way and 8-way), scuba diving or skiing. When we met her first she arrived at the airport with only a tiny bag and a big smile.
11 years of swimming used to keep her fit. Now she goes to the gym to optimize her days. Caro is an early bird, turning on her music after waking up. „Rise and Shine“ seems to be her motto in life. That’s what we like about her (at least after our first coffee) 😉
First Jump: 1992 in Klatovy
Home Dropzone: TAKE OFF Fehrbellin
Tunnel Hours: 120
We are happy that our Cookie G3 helmets have arrived in less than 3 weeks after ordering them. We chose Cookie G3 Skydiving Helmets because they provide great comfort and a wide field of vision – plus they are light weighted and durable. Team SKYNAMITE decided to go for grey helmets like the beams in our logo 🙂
In Skydiving we need our videos to debrief our jumps and to do our homework behind the scenes. Skydiving is all about being prepared and mentally on track for those expensive seconds during freefall or tunnel. So we are super happy that the bc-unity team sponsored us a 3,7 TB NAS including their magical setup and user administration so we can upload, download and manage our videos, fotos and schedules. Thanks bc-unity for your awesome support!
Real skydivers like to be outside in the sunshine, free falling into blue skies, sweating through a great training camp or just funjumping with friends.
Even if we have great indoor windtunnels in Europe we still lack a good amount of fresh air and light throughout wintertime.
So our Inside Center Sandra took some flour and lots of sugar and created a fabulous new interpretation of the seasonal christmas bakery. Try it – it’s destressing and lots of fun at the same time!
…and it’s THE greatest christmas present for your skydiving friends. GO TO RECIPE!
- are not vegan (well, at least there is no meat in them..)
- are not in the least sugarfree
- same for fat – you get a full blast
…and we like it like that 🙂
(If you need an English recipe version please contact us)
All of us have been jumping and competing in mixed teams for a long time now – with several medals in different classes. We never wanted to jump in a girls-team… But now as a female constellation we found a new kind of team spirit and flying quality.
