Dynamic flyers! Unite!

We have some great news. After over a year’s break, spent making dynamic an FAI-sanctioned event with official World Champion titles, we are back organizing our very own competition!

Next D4W stop : TOKYO, at Flystation Japan.

This competition will be special. The best eight teams in D4W and top eight teams in D2W will be invited to Japan for a week to compete. Their flights, accommodation and entry fees will be covered! The goal is to set a standard and initiate a yearly event, leading up to 2020, when we plan to host a competition at the same time as the Olympics, in an effort to bring Dynamic closer to this dream !

WHEN?

Training : March 26 - 30

Competition : March 31th - april 1st

(You can arrive before and leave after if you wish to check out this incredible country, which I highly recommend, but hotel from the organisation will be covered march 26 - April 2)

WHAT?

A Dynamic Flying competition, in D2W and D4W, using the same rules and divepool as the World championship in Canada.

We will have freestyle as demonstration and show, not competition. If you're interested, you may send an application too.
