Happenings
 

The 2009 Perris Annual Holiday Boogie

The Perris Holiday Boogie is an annual event that attracts jumpers from all over the world. Due to the perfect-all-year-round-weather in Southern California, we are able to continue jumping, even if it snows elsewhere.

During the boogie I organized many Hybrid dives with Josh Hall and Erez Yaron. The jumps were extremely successful, and a lot of fun also.

Josh Hall of Fury organized some cool 8-ways which I had the pleasure of filming.

It looked like everyone who participated had a blast!
 

 
 
 


 

 

Other cool things that happened during the boogie were the 40ish ways organized by Mark Brown. With a good dose of fun and a pinch of chaos, the 40ish ways added plenty of spice to the mix.

 

 

During the boogie, Fury thought it would be a great time to give back to the dropzone with their “Fury Free Week”. We had a good number of participants and they certainly got their money’s worth. With Fury offering everything from ground coaching to 3-on-1, all the participants had a great time and learned a lot as well.

 

 

 

Performance Designs' Demo Program

PD helped make the boogie complete by providing demo-canopies for any interested jumpers wanting to try their quality products.
If you haven’t done so yet, I recommend taking full advantage of this opportunity. Contact any member of Perris Fury for more information on how to jump the coolest canopies ever!

Past Events
 

One on One

I joined Chris Farina of Perris Fury while he was coaching a student fresh off student status.

 


 

 
 


 

The student made huge improvements during his time with Chris, learning everything from exit techniques to more complicated RW maneuvers. Congratulations to Sun on passing his AFF!
