    Part 1: 80ways

    I've been dreaming about a Brit 200 way since I learnt what bigway was. The 400way was in 2006 and I followed it as best I could on the internet. Totally engrossed and absorbed albeit details from Thailand were few and far between at the time. Let's make this happen. Somehow. Somewhere.

     

    My current plan is

    2022 - 80ways, Late Sep/Early Oct... TBC. Perris... TBC.

    2024 - 120ways

    2026 - 200ways

     

    I'm also done with the world being divisive and polarising. For 2022, I want to make these 80ways inclusive. So in the best traditions of our Rugby Union teams, Let's make this a British and Irish Lions bigway. Let's get this bigway festival started...

  • BigWay CARNIVAL

    It's like Bigway but with more of the fun stuff and less of the boring stuff. Events at Langar, across the UK and Europe. And, ahem, Costa Rica. Did I mention I went to Costa Rica? ;-)

    Paul Rimmington

    A northern legend

    The ultimate team player. A total asset. Can't do enough to help. Both before the event, during and after. Always gets the shot I need to coach with, no messing around. Paul has been filming my groups since 2016. Rubbish at replying to requests for profile pictures though.

     

    HIRE HIM

    Martin Skrbel

    The most enthusiastic

    Relatively new to flying camera but loves to fly and loves to film and is starting to make big waves. Devotes time and money to being a better flyer and a better photographer. The most helpful person you could meet, he even wins prizes for being helpful, and then isn't there to collect the prize because he's left the DZ to help someone.

    Emily Aucutt

    Pure fun

    Emily is just a bundle of pure fun and great to work with. Her enthusiasm is infectious and her willingness to listen and learn is top notch. She was British Skydiving Instructor of the Year 2019 and she applies herself to her camera flying just as thoroughly.

    Dave Clarke

    A pro

    Dave gets flown all around the world to film events by some of the top FS LOs in the world. His flying, camera and editing skills are top notch. Another level up.

    Tom Shorten

    Multi-disciplined

    Tom appears to be a natural flyer but he works hard on his skills. Angle, belly, freefly, he can film it ALL. You want him to carve head down around a formation with it all in frame? Princess is who you go to. A regular cameraflyer for Zion FF at their events. Also a BPA CSI, TI, AFFI and USPA TI and AFFI.

    Learn bigway, the right way

    The best entertainment and education per skydive.

    WHO SHOULD BE DOING THIS CAMP

    • Skydivers who want to get bigway current for the summer
    • Skydivers who haven't done multi-plane before
    • Skydivers that want to learn bigway properly
    • Skydivers who want to have a fun trip. Obvs.
    • Skydivers that want a reference for other events

     

    WHO SHOULD NOT BE DOING THIS CAMP

    • Skydivers who want multiple completions.

     

    This camp isn't about completions. It's about learning the skills required in a no stress atmosphere. As soon as there is an expectation of completions, the stress increases, decisions are rushed and mistakes are more common. No stress. No blame.

     

    You need to be aware that you will do some jumps in your comfort zone. And then you will be rotated into a slot that you are not comfortable with. 50kg people in the base? 100kg people on the outside? That's what we do. Test yourself.

    There were zero completions in 2018 and 2019. Perfect. But everyone came away more confident about performing under pressure in a traditional bigway environment AND they were all smiling.

    This is how you learn bigway properly.
