Junior has been a tandem and AFF instructor at Skydive Algarve now for almost a year and a half. We caught up with him for a quick interview to find out a little more about him.
Skydive Algarve's Instructor Junior

What do you like about being an instructor?
Helping people to make their dream to become skydivers come true and also how to deal with their fears. I also love that big hug from a tandem customer after landing, It is such good energy!

What do you do outside of skydiving?
I like to share good moments like cooking, traveling and snowboarding with my wife, daughter and friends.


What makes Skydive Algarve such a special dropzone for tandems and students?
Everybody smiles here. We are always in a good mood. I guess it’s got a lot to do with the good weather.

Try to describe skydiving to a non skydiver.
Who jumps cannot explain, who doesn’t jump cannot understand.

Leave us with a life lesson from Junior:
Be humble, respect people, do your best, take time for yourself, if you have a question ask more than one person’s opinion. It will be easier for you to make your decision. Stop being a dreamer and start being a doer person: Only you can make your dreams come true.

What’s something you’re proud of in your skydiving career?
To make people think more about safety and to progress in baby steps.
