Re: [hackish] 180 degree front riser requirement for "A"

Hey Mike,

Not sure who told you it's impossible....but I did it. Now if I was asked to do more than a 360, yeah, it might get really tough.

Imagine me, 5'8", 120 lbs, on the front riser of a Manta 288.

Trust me, it is fully possible.

In my opinion, if you "can't" do at least a 180...you're too weak to be jumping. That may sound harsh...but seriously.

Chris

Edited to add:
By "you're too weak to jump", I'm not indicating that this is you specifically, but jumpers in general.
