ADVANCED PARAGLIDING TOUR

TIMBIS + PAYUNG NUSA DUA BALI INDONESIA

2018 Advanced Tour…New Location, new experiences…

If you’ve been on the High Adventure Advanced Tour is the past, you’ll know we’ve successfully used Candidasa as an Advanced site for six years, and it has been used by other tour groups for over 15. It’s no doubt an impressive site and offers the option of a Hike and Fly experience from Mt Agung, but this year we’ve been asked to make some changes.

The Balinese are a very humble bunch and also very religious, the locations of Candidasa launches and flight paths are close to some of the local temples, too close for some, and so in 2018, there has been a complete ban on flying in Candidasa.

…..THE GAME PLAN FOR THE ADVANCED TOUR

The dates will remain the same, and number two; the Advanced Skills Tour will stay exactly as it has in previous years, only this year it will be based in Nusa Dua and the sites used will be Timbis and Payung.

The Advanced Tour in Candidasa is focused on developing advanced skills and manoeuvres, all of this can be achieved on the sites in Nusa Dua.

The Advanced Tour is not the General Nusa Dua Tour. The General tour dates will also remain the same; they are July 29th – August 11th

The Advanced Tour is limited to 12 participants, and your instructors will be David, Diogo + Maderson.

THE SITE

The Timbis Paragliding site is located in the southern part of the island, called Desa Kutuh in South Kuta and sits above the famous Pandawa Beach.

You can launch and top land safely at the site, and it offers a huge stretch of coastal cliffs 70 metres above sea level.

I’ve attached some links to facebook and website pages that offer some great images of the site.

REQUIREMENTS

All pilots must fly with a reserve and are encouraged to fly with a life jacket (supplied) when attempting new manoeuvres. We should add that no pilots have ever thrown their reserve and people really push their limits.

Our aim is not to have you throw your reserve and land in the water, but if something does happen, we have a boat on standby for your safety.

You must be of an intermediate level and MUST have a reserve to join this clinic.

We recommend the use of a Go-Pro (helmet cam etc) for post flight technique analysis and critique.

GETTING THERE

You should aim to arrive in Bali by the 31st of July. In previous years people have arranged group transport with the hotel from the airport to Candidasa. Its almost certain that someone if not a few people will be on your flight that are also on this course. Closer to the time we will help arrange transport.

Keep in contact on Facebook so you can share rides. We can easily organise pick-up if you let us know in advance.

ACCOMMODATION

We will be staying at the Santika Siligita Nusa Dua – where we stayed in 2014 – 2017.

The Santika rates slide on a downward scale when we can offer them an indication of how many people will be staying and for what dates. Currently, the prices sit at $57 for Road facing and $70 for pool facing, and these rates will lower as we confirm numbers. This includes buffet breakfast for two and all taxes. 

You are more than welcome to book online with any third party booking provider at the advertised rate (booking.com, Agoda etc.), or you can book in with us and pay the hotel on arrival in Bali. We will be taking hotel bookings via FORM in the next two weeks and ongoing until one week out from the trip. This gives people enough time to consider their options for Bali 2018.

The Santika is a Novotel Style hotel in an excellent location surrounded by markets, restaurants and only 5 minutes from the flying site and the renowned Bali Collection shopping mall. They offer a communal meeting area, WI-FI and a generous Western and Balinese buffet breakfast.  There is also a shuttle that goes back and forth to the Hotel Beach Club. The Beachclub is part of another hotel that allows the Santika to use its beach facilities.
