What is Paradise Portugal?

Originated in the concept of FlajFLaj in the US, Paradise is a freefly and wingsuit skills camp with a high jumping and coaching intensity, where the main priority is for people to learn and progress in a safe environment of small groups, no matter what their level is. And of course, we added a little ToraTora sauce, with the goal of turning the camp into a fun vacation as well.

To anyone who doesn’t think their level is high enough for a camp like this, what would you tell them?

If you’ve successfully finished your AFF, you’re good to go. You probably won’t be doing many groups, but with your coach you’ll focus on 1-on-1 instruction jumps and homework jumps in between. Our coaches are not limited to showing you a few freefly tricks, they all have extensive skydive experienced and are there to teach you in all aspects of the sport. We might even be able to send you home with an A license.

Why choose Skydive Algarve to host your event?

For the perfect late summer climate. For the beaches and the views. For the food. And for one of the most professional skydiving operations in Europe.

What advice would you give to a jumper with a freshly stamped A licence?

Be eager. Be hungry. Keep your eyes and mind open. Visit a skills camp.

Any final words?

Can’t wait for October. It’s looking like this year will be the largest skills camp we’ve ever organised so we’re fully focused to ensure that quality and safety remain at the highest level.
