After 2 weeks of waiting due to intensive winds, we finally had a good weather to fly. Not only good, but perfect …

During the week, we decided to go to “Las Criollas” Beach of Barceloneta. Many pilots and students were arriving from different parts of the island. Two weeks are too much time on ground…

The Team Kamikazes pilots and family were:

Pablo Cruz and his wife Millie
Chey Sánchez and his wife Arlene
Chelo Meléndez, his wife Jessy and children Arialis and Marcos
Deron Freeman, his wife Carla and family (from Connecticut)
Noel Vale and his wife Tata
José Santini and his wife Zoe
Luis Daniel Ayala and his wife Vanessa
Luis Ruiz, his wife Jessica and son Noah Enrique
Ted Sowinski
Omar Román
Danny Cintron
José “TNT” Villanueva
Alex Diaz
Rafa Guerrero
David Silva
Ariel Rodríguez (Possible new student)
Miguel Rossy (Possible new student)
Alberto Sabah
Mark Grabowski
Randy Tirado
Sao Cruz

Early in the morning it was clear, but the wind was coming from the South. This changed at about 10 AM with the arrival of winds from the NNE direction. Quickly students Alberto, Luis Daniel, TNT and Mark began their practices of the control of the paraglider. In the meantime, the pilots prepared to fly.

Eventually, the wind stabilized from the North all day with an intensity of about 8 mph. This was used by all pilots to flying around and even to go “cross”. Chey, Pablo, Deron, Ted, Randy, David, Sao, Omar, Rafa and Alex, they were flying at will. They goes as far as the Arecibo Lighthouse with a close encounter with the Statue of Colon. And heading to the East they reached Mar Chiquita in Manati. The presence of whales in the surroundings increased the perfection of the day! They were recorded on more than one occasion.

There is nothing in the world quite like this !

Luis Ruiz for his part, was quite busy, first attending students of the school and then making some previously agreed passenger flights. It was not a typical day for him. He barely managed to meet all the people present. In total, he made 7 passenger flights. Nicole and her family traveled from Juana Diaz to live the paramotor flight experience, as well as a family natives of Rhode Island. Also from Juana Diaz, comes Angie accompanied with his friend Luis. In her fly she could witness the whales. She expressed that this one the first time she saw a whale in his life. Go Figure…  Randy, in one of his flights, recorded one of them. Here the video…

La ballena estuvo en el area como 20 min, se me hacía un poco complicado bajar más y aguantar el celular en la mano, pero ahí está, en par de tomas se puede apreciar. @ Las Criollas, Barceloneta PR

José “TNT” Villanueva and Chelo Meléndez premiered paramotors and paragliders today. TNT arrived with its SkyMax EOS 150 and Apco Lift EZ R paraglider, while Chelo premiered a SkyMax Moster MY20 and Apco Lift EZ R. paraglider. Both had unexpected difficulties in their take-offs. TNT had some technical failures, while Chelo had an unexpected failure in one of the straps of his harness, although he took off, he had to land quickly. Surely better days will come for both pilots 🙂.

In the afternoon Rafa arrived after fulfilling professional commitments during the day. He closed the afternoon of flights. It was an excellent day, and healthy sharing. As always we thank God for these opportunities that allow us to live 🙏.
