CAMPS

Whether you're looking for FS, CFS or Angle coaching, at Invasion this year, you can take advantage of getting your very own coach!
Enjoy 2-ways with our assigned coach for the day in your choice of discipline, in a thorough and structured learning environment where our organizer will cater entirely to your goals and skill level.

The best part? While private coaching usually costs a few hundred dollars per day, this coaching experience is completely free!

As long as you are registered for the boogie, you can sign up for private coaching.

Jumps are limited to two 1-on-1 skydives per student.
You will be placed in rotation and your second jump will be completed once every participant has had a turn with our designated coaches.
All coaches are chosen from the LO list provided for the boogie.

All Intro Camps will be designed to target jumpers who have only participated in two and three ways in the discipline they've signed up for.

This is perfect for anyone who wants to learn new skills in the form of flying in a safe and structured environment, or those looking to brush up on skills they've developed at home, but would like to further progress with some more technical training.

Briefs and video debriefs will be provided between each jump.
Group sizes will be kept small to ensure safety and comfort for each participant.

Have you done some flying and are fairly familiar with the rules of the sky, but looking to challenge yourself with a more demanding skydive?

If you've got experience with medium to large size groups, can approach and dock on a formation (and keep flying!) as well as always execute safe and appropriate break off procedures, these camps are for you!

Once again, groups will be broken up according to experience and skill level.

Formation skydiving camps will focus on 8-way as well as big way training.
Freefly camps will take on some exciting VFS work, while Angle camps will get you moving steep and fast, and also adding dynamic flying elements to movement as well.
Briefs and video debriefs will be provided between each jump.

Intro to Head Up Camp participants must be able to:

- Hold Sit
- Safely approach other skydivers
- Execute safe break-off procedures

Intro to Head Down Camp participants must be able to:

- Fly head-down the entire skydive
- Safely approach other skydivers
- Execute safe break-off procedures

Intro to Angle Camp participants must be able to:

- Flat track in groups
- Execute safe break-off procedures

My name is Sam, but most know me as Sunshine.

I started jumping in 2008 in Chambersburg, and since then have made well over a thousand freefly and angle jumps, and have logged about 500 hours in the tunnel.

I've had the pleasure of working at three different tunnels in the east coast, as well as being part of the Skydive Suffolk staff as an AFF instructor.

I've most recently been part of the opening crew at iFly KOP and spend my days ripping it up in the wind with my friends, and teach people how to fly.

When I'm not at work, I spend as much time at the dropzone as possible.

I am super amped to be joining the team for Invasion, and shredding with new friends and old.

Till then, EFS and blue skies to you!








I have 11 years in the sport, with jumps in all disciplines, from formation skydiving to wingsuits, but my heart belongs to freeflying.

It's been an honor to fly with the elite in 3 vertical world record formations and 2 women's world record formations.

I've competed in 4 U.S. National completions with 2 VFS teams and 2 MFS teams, taking home one bronze metal in the MFS Open category.

I'm also a yoga instructor and massage therapist, I love laughing, long walks and sunsets on the beach.

Skydiving Roles: FS Organizer, FS Tunnel Camp Organizer, Dealer for Vector, PD, Vigil, and Cypres

Achievements: I think my biggest achievement is working hard to stay current and relevant in a sport that changes rapidly.
I've not allowed myself to fall into the very easy category of "used to be".

I also believe I have helped many people navigate our sport in terms of gear, technique, safety (especially canopy) and how to choose their mentors.

Fun Fact: I took Evil Knievel pheasant hunting and hid $45,000 of his jewelry in our carburetor while we walked in some fields.
He was a cool guy.







Mike Brewer is a self-proclaimed non-hipster, in spite of his man-bun, eclectic vinyl collection, and Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts

After graduating UNC Wilmington, Mike filed his diploma in a very thick stack of other useless documents, bought himself a nice tent
(to finance his tunnel membership), and settled down in the fine city of Raeford, NC.

Eventually, the Paraclete XP staff got sick of him whining about his shitty sleeping bag, and offered him a job.

Since then, Mike has spent his days shooting tandem video, buzzing around in the windy tube, and ripping with the XP family on his days off.

In spite of all his progress, he still eats Lunchables for dinner.

He volunteers on the weekends as skydiving/tunnel videographer and photographer as well as a Tandem instructor and coach

to create as well as currently earning his Bachelors of Science in Strategic Studies and Defense Analysis

He's also a Mac and cheese connoisseur and pizza enthusiast

WINGSUIT ORGANIZERS

Scotty Bob Morgan started flying a wingsuit after he bought a used Phoenix-Fly Phantom while he was deployed to Iraq with the U.S. military.
“It didn’t fit at all and it was in McDonald’s colors,” he adds, “but I skydived it anyway and it was love at first jump.”

Since then, Scotty Bob has become one of the world’s most dynamic terrain flyers and a pilot known for his legendary per-flight planning and precision flying.
He has opened many wingsuit BASE routes in the U.S. and Europe, many of them “short rock drop” sites that require advanced low-speed flying skill.

He says that one of his secrets to success is repeating to himself before each jump, “don’t screw this up.”

He says of his chances for winning the Grand Prix are unpredictable because “I’m not that good at racing, but I make all my gates, and I can fly the crap out of a wingsuit, so I think I have a shot.”

Scotty Bob also has a sense of humor as legendary as his planning and precision.

When asked who he would least like to fly against in the head-to-head race, he names “Graham Dickinson, he smells really bad...like seriously, have you smelled that guy? He stinks. I bet I’ll still smell him four or five seconds after exit. My ideal opponent would be Marshall Miller. I mean, look at that smile...such good teeth – and I wonder who does his hair?”

On a more serious note, Scotty Bob offer this advice to his friends and fans: “Always wear sunscreen.”



Romain Bignon started jumping in 2009 right here at Skydive Sebastian!

In 2010, he did his first wingsuit jump.

Since then, he has logged over 1400 wingsuit jumps.

He was recently added to the PhoenixFly Need4Speed wingsuit team in 2015, and has been focused on wingsuit acrobatics and dynamic backflying formations.
