Tony Hawk visits ASC

A beautiful week at ASC was marred slightly by high winds which allowed only 5 jumpable days. But jumpers made the most of the days available.

Recent AFF graduate Charlie Cummins completed most of his A-License proficiency card on Tuesday with the help of some RW coaching at ASC. We also had four AFF students out that day working on a variety of levels.

Only one load made it in the air on Wednesday due to high winds, but that jump was a beauty at sunset. A thin layer of clouds to the west of the drop zone made for an amazing sunset view for fun jumpers and students. Gusts upto 45 Tony Hawk after making a tandem skydive at Atlanta Skydiving! knots made all of Thursday unjumpable, but we were back in the skies on Friday.

Skateboarder extraodinaire Tony Hawk visited ASC and made

his first skydive on Friday morning. Instructor Chuck Owen took Tony on a tandem skydive with Nate Gilbert on video. Tony Hawk was in town for a skateboarding event. A couple of Tony Hawk's friends are experienced jumpers and wanted Tony to get a taste of freefall...he loved it of course!
