Pat:

Pat is our head tandem instructor. Although he constantly teases staff & students alike, Pat’s passion for the sport of skydiving is apparent through his dedication & loyalty to jumping out of our orange pumpkin plane. In his off-time, Pat doubles as a paragliding instructor, hiker, adventurer and video editor. As a Central Coast native, it’s common to simply look up and find Pat in the sky.

Anna:

As our DZO, Anna is the backbone of our business and keeps the office running smoothly. Her passion for customer service & fun sets the tone for our incredibly happy team. Although she previously resided in Fiji, Anna returned to her Central Coast roots last year and hasn’t looked back. When she’s not making skydiving reservations, Anna is enjoying her two fantastic children and soaking up the California sunshine.

Andie:

Andie holds the fort down by handling the marketing, media and manifest aspects of Skydive Pismo Beach. Although her full name is Andie, she also responds to the nicknames of Schmandie, Andie-Pants & Mermandie. She previously lived and worked in New Zealand, where she first discovered the sport of skydiving. When she’s not working, you can find her anywhere near the ocean, surfing, attending local events, baking, exploring and of course – laughing.

As our DZO, Tom specializes in skydiving, instructing and keeping our ‘pumpkin plane’ ready to fly. Although Tom is constantly on the go and has skydived all over the world, he admits that Skydive Pismo Beach has “the best views & team, hands down.” Devotion, fun and passion are just a few words Tom has used to describe his feelings towards skydiving.

Paula:

Paula specializes in packing our parachutes, so make sure not to distract her! Yet another blondie-team-member, Paula brings a unique twist by being born and raised in Finland. She holds both American & Finnish nationalities and has been to 25 different countries. Although her main passion is skydiving she also loves traveling, surfing, snowboarding, sledding and napping. Paula is in the midst of becoming a certified skydiver and hopes to witness her next travel destination from the unique perspective of free-falling above it.

Micah:

Micah’s shining face tends to be seen around town giving out information & flyer distribution. In addition, she plays a big role in our media and manifest tasks. Currently, Micah’s in the midst of training to be an EMT. Her passions include rock climbing, child care and adventuring. Micah’s always up to try something new, which is why we’re lucky enough to have her here on the Central Coast as she recently picked up and moved from Northern California.

Alex:

Alex is an excellent ground crew member & parachute packer. He completed his first skydive right here at Skydive Pismo Beach and fell in love as he is now a certified skydiver. When Alex isn’t packing our ‘chutes, jumping out of planes, hiking or messing with his GoPro, he doubles as an engineering student. Alex has excellent facial-hair-growth skills and never has the same beard, mustache or sideburns for too long.

Jonny:

Jonny is a key-player of our ground staff team. Along with packing our parachutes, he keeps our operation running smoothly by driving the van, harnessing students and keeping smiles on customer’s faces. Jonny first skydived on Mother’s Day of 2008 and hasn’t been able to stay on the ground since. In his free time he enjoys getting in touch with his creative side through the art of glass blowing, fire-poi and paintball. Make sure to ask him about his awesome leather jacket!
