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
