When I was on Team Mandrin, one of my teammates for 2 years was Mike Wittenburg. A few years ago Mike along with his wife and 2 kids moved over to Dubai and put skydiving as their main activity. Since the kids weren’t old enough to skydive, they were welcomed into the privately owned Wind Tunnel. As some of you might know, the Crown Prince of Dubai is a very active skydiver and very much responsible for the surge in skydiving activity over in the U.A.E. I was lucky enough to visit them in Dubai earlier this year and saw the kids flying, at the time they were Eight and Six. Mike put this video together for his now Nine year old daughter. Talented doesn’t even begin to describe it. It just goes to show what the no fear attitude of kids coupled with family support and hard training (and a little bit of ice cream) can accomplish.
Sit back, turn up the sound, make it full screen and enjoy what the kids are up to today. I’m really looking forward to seeing what they can do next year!
