Wind Tunnel with SDC Rhythm XP
SDC Rhythm XP holds workshops throughout the year at the Paraclete XP Tunnel in Raeford, NC, the largest, most powerful wind tunnel in the world. Rhythm has a proven curriculum that was developed over hundreds of tunnel hours and thousands of coached jumps. Our workshops focus on formation skydiving skills and comprise mainly of one-on-one coaching and 4/8way coaching. Between the thorough preparations before each flight, the flying time itself and the in-depth debrief afterwards, a single hour in the wind includes many hours of instruction and review.

Fundamentals of Formation Skydiving: One-on-One Coaching
The Rhythm one-on-one curriculum includes a clearly defined and systematically laid out lesson plan. It starts with the basic points of motion (forward-back, sideslides, slowfall-fastfall and turns) and builds on that to develop more and more complex flying capabilities. Because we are preparing you for skydiving, we also focus on things like grip taking, referencing with other people, and presenting your body in various orientations like cats, phalanxes, and closed accordions - all terms you will learn during the camp. We also fully understand that each student learns in their own way and comes to us with different skill-sets, and we pride ourselves on customizing our standard curriculum to best fit the needs and interests of the student.
During the camp, your time will be split across multiple sessions throughout the day. Before each session your coach will prep a series of drill dives with you, explaining how to do each dive, setting goals and walking through the dive flows. During each session you'll fly 10 minute-and-a-half flights with your coach (one student with one coach in the wind tunnel at a time), with minute-and-a-half rest between each flight. After the session, you will join your coach for a full debrief of your flights from video, and tailor the next session's jumps appropriately. At the end of the camp you'll be able to download your video files. You can watch a video from a previous camp.
4way and 8way: Group Coaching
For experienced tunnel flyers or teams we also run a 4way curriculum that can accomodate 2on2, 3on1, or an entire team flying with the Rhythm member coaching from outside. For 4way, we work with groups that come to the camp as a unit or, if you don't have a group, we can pair up individuals with comparable skills to form 4way groups. Rhythm has deep experience training skydivers who are just starting out in 4way as well top, seasoned competitors. We pride ourselves on fitting the instruction to the participants. Coaching in Spanish is also available. Please ask for more details. If you have a friend or loved one who wants to just join the group and freefly, we can arrange that as well.
*You do not need to be present for all days of a camp -- just what is practical for the amount of time you want to fly. Days will fill up on a first-come first-served basis, so we recommend booking as soon as possible.
