Rob made his first 3 jumps in 1981, at a time when they trained via static line. A friend of his convinced him to come out and give it a try. It wouldn’t be until 2000 though that his passion for the sport really kicked in. In the 19 years since Rob has competed in competitions across multiple disciplines, won several awards and became CPI’s AFF Coordinator. There isn’t a weekend that goes by that you won’t find Rob at the Dropzone, teaching classes, taking up new students, or just plain fun jumping. Rob’s accumulated skydiving knowledge has made him an asset to jumpers of all experience levels

Skydiving is in Sarah’s blood, with both parents as pilots and her father also an avid skydiver it was no surprise to anyone when she made her first jump on her 16th birthday. Sarah’s love of the sport has only grown as she’s spread out to other disciplines. Probably one of the most naturally gifted personalities you’ll find on any dropzone Sarah’s traveled all over the world meeting all sorts of people through skydiving and it’s become one of her favorite things about the sport. Especially memorable was a sunrise jump off the coast of a tiny Panamanian Island.
