Gringo Camp

February 26 - March 10, 2017

How about jumping barefoot in shorts and T-shirt for two weeks, boosting your skills with top coaches, landing on the beach every single jump and chilling out with Taco’s and Margaritas afterwards? Mexico sounds like our dream destination.

ToraTora sets out to organise a tropical event for freeflyers and wingsuit flyers around the world. The Gringo Camp looks like a mix between a boogie, a skills camp and an exotic holiday. The camp, at Puerto Escondido, Mexico, includes jumping in small and larger groups with professional coaching, opportunity to do 1-on-1 jumps and accommodation close to the beach. With two weeks of beach life, delicious food and drinks for ridiculous prices and some exciting excursions to see the wonders of Mexico, we can’t see this one going wrong!

The mornings are used to focus on small groups and to provide 1-on-1 coaching for those who want that. The afternoons are all about group organising where groups can become a bit bigger (6-10).

More coaches may be added when more registrations come in

The camp is open to all levels, from beginner to ninja. If you’re already able to jump in groups of 4-8 people, you’ll get the maximum out of this camp. If you don’t have that level yet, you can still join to jump for yourself or with your friend(s). On top of that you can get 1-on-1 coaching jumps to improve massively during the camp.
