The first ever Pro edition of the Dubai International Swoop League (DISL) is done and dusted! It took place at Skydive Dubai over the past week.
Special congratulations to Cornelia Mihai for her 3rd place overall and our very own Kiwi shredder Chris Stewart for his 7th overall! Both were flying JPX Petra’s for Distance and the new JPX Sofia’s for Speed.
Rob Wallace from SoCal Evolution brought home 9th place overall with some solid rounds on his JPX Petra.
A bunch of Speed records were broken at the DISL this year as well. Cornelia Mihai set a new Female World Record of 2.208 andChris Stewart set a New Zealand National record with a 2.225 second run.
Congratulations are in order for Pablo Hernandez on his 2.086 Speed World Record too. Respect.
Starting today is the canopy piloting rounds at the Dubai International Parachuting Championship. We’re looking forward to seeing how our athletes and Petra pilots do in this next test of their power and speed!
