Cutaway

Some background, did a Static Line Jump, last year, when going for the risers noticed the right did not come down like the left, noticed the line over. Released the brakes all the way, then pumped twice. Am a student, so should of cutaway sooner. But I wanted to fix the issue, looked at the altimeter, thought I had time, hindsight may of been some what hesitant. Repeated the third S/L today, got knocked on my back, the lines were twisted, the slider stuck. I cutaway on instinct this time. Even I have to repeat it, the hesitation to do a cutaway is gone, so in a way the jump had some positive aspects.
