What do you do outside of skydiving?

Most recently, trying not to drown after falling off a surf board. So far, so good.

I’ve also been playing the guitar for pretty much as long as I can remember. To be honest, I should probably be better by now.

What makes SA such a special dropzone for tandems and students?

The team of instructors that I’m lucky enough to count myself among. The guys here are such an unbelievably experienced team from multiple disciplines, training systems and federations. Each of them has an infectious enthusiasm and passion for progression; both for themselves and their students.

Try to describe skydiving to a non-skydiver.

It’d be easier to show them. ?

Leave us with a life lesson from Andy…

Be safe. Turn high.

What’s something you’re proud of in your skydiving career?

Obtaining all three instructor ratings in one calendar year and going on to be awarded BPA Instructor of the Year 2015!

More recently, BPA Advanced Instructor was a tough nut to crack, but a feeling of accomplishment unlike anything else.
