Saturday Spin Up

Tunnel Party Time!

Want some budget tunnel coaching with Christy Frikken and friends? Then, Saturday Spin-up is for you!

Get more in-air control with individually coached flight time, and when you are ready, join another flyer (and a coach!) to double your time.

All skills are welcome, from fledgling flyers to four-way freaks!

How does this event work?

You will get five minutes of individual coaching with Christy and her crew. You can work on anything you want, but each night has a Theme Skill and suggested Signature Drills.

For the Double Shot, you will either spend five more minutes honing your skills or doubling up with another flyer to put your new skills into practice.

When will I fly?

You won’t need to be there for the entire evening. Once we are close to the event, we will send out your exact meet and flight times. There isn’t a formal debrief for this event; however, if you stick around to the end, Christy will do an express debrief with you to highlight your improvement and what you can work on next time.

Why does it say “5-15” minutes?

If you are ready and willing to fly with others and have a compatible partner, we will pair you up with your coach in three ways. In the three ways, you’ll practice drills that put your individual skills into practice. By doubling up, we can extend your time while keeping the focus on improving your bodyflight!

How do I know if I am ready to fly with others?

To fly with someone else (3ways with a coach), you should be able to enter the tunnel unassisted, match fall rate, and smoothly pick up a sidebody. Again, you don’t need to be a rockstar, but we want you to be safe!

Do I have to fly with others?

Nope! If you want just 5 minutes of individual time, select that option after registering.

What Does “Theme and Signature Drills” mean?

Each Saturday Spin-Up will have an optional theme: fall rate, turns, sliding, stopping, lower body movement, moving with others/piece work, gripping, stability, and dozens more awesome abilities.

The Signature Drills for the night will be a list of targeted drills for various skill levels. Signature Drills are a fun way to share focus for the group.

BUT… we can use your tunnel for any FS skill you want! You can customize your session with your coach if you have a particular focus.

How is this different from regular coaching with Christy?

There are a lot more people to start with! Saturday Spin-up is a whole evening of shared time with a busy, fun atmosphere.

And because there are so many eager flyers, we can pair you up with others for drills (when you are ready) to stretch your value. You are sharing Christy’s attention with the group, which is why it is so budget-friendly!

If you are interested in regular coaching, you can connect with Christy by booking directly or by emailing for a custom time. She routinely coaches at all of the tunnels in Southern California and can work out a time to fly with you.

Who are the coaches? Will I fly with Christy?

Christy Frikken is the head coach and provides the drills and direction for the night. She also has a super awesome team of volunteer assistants to help with this event. You’ll typically fly with a combo of Christy and her helpers.

Can I fly more than one block?

Yes, you can fly up to four blocks in the event.

I really like Christy's coaching style, it's a great mix of serious and fun, with the ratio adjusted as needed for each person/team. Great organizational skills to keep all the cats herded, and she is skilled and knowledgeable.
