Latest on date 1st december 2020, registered teams, will have to send and upload what they consider their best choreography among their training jumps.
If there will be more then 20 Teams per contest there will be a pre-selection of the best 20 teams to enter the finals. This pre-selection will be done by the competitors thelmselves. The choreographies that make it to the finals will be viewed by two panels of judges. The first panel consist of few invited judges knowledgeble in the flying game they judge (ES-Panel). The second panel consist of non experienced skydivers though professionals in other sports or arts (NES-Panel).
Results from the 2 distinct panels will then be combined to find the overall win.
SkyonStage will award with medals and certificate of placement the following categories:
– Winners as per ES-Panel results (competitors plus invited judges)
– Overall Winners as per ES-Panel and NES-Panel combined results
– The PeterPan Award (competitor who enter most of the games and placed the best overall)
There will be some prizes offered by our Partners and by Sky on Stage to the winning teams.
As Sky on Stage is still defining and finding new awards to be offered, check the Award page to see what is offered so far.
Teams placed 21st (in case of more then 20 team registered to the contest) will be the winners of the Intermediate category . Final results of both the Intermediate and Pro Category will be announced on date 28 December 2020.
After exiting the airplane, in the time before opening their parachutes and return safely to mother Earth, the performer/s and the cameraflyer, fly around each other using the whole sky as their stage. Their aim is to create a team flying choreography. There are no mandatory nor suggested moves. Teams can choose any freeflying and freestyling techniques; they can choose any flying attitude, maneuvers, speeds, rotations, orientations, angles, interpretation. Team’s members can be of any mixed gender and nationalities. Competition jump can be performed over any skydiving center in the World.
The beauty about having the Sky as a stage, is that the body can fly and move through the atmosphere gliding in all orientations and directions with a wide range of possible combined vertical and horizontal speeds. The visual created are unique. All will be presented through the eye of the cameraflyer, who is filming the team performer/s while interactively flying with them.
Flyers are wearing a wingsuit, a specially built webbed suit (looking like a flying squirrel or a bat ) worn by the skydivers, to acquire an improved gliding ratio and flying power.
Wingsuit acrobatics is quite a new recent direction and SkyonStage is thrilled to offer a nice playground to push wingsuiting creativity even further.
A skysurfer fly with his/her feet linked, through to a cut-away system, to a board, similar to the one of a snow-boarder, wake-boarder or surfer.
A skysurfer can track, gliding on the air surface, like a snowboarder on the snow or a surfer on the water-waves, though can also spin and rotate in all orientations with a lot of power.
Skysurf saw in the past some epic times, making it to ESPN X-Games and SSI Pro-Tour.
The wish of Sky on Stage is to bring back to life this beautiful and outstanding discipline. To be able to share skysurfing sport/art to the public once again and hopefully push its evolution to further expressions
