Re: [excaza] How many jumps to stay current

The demands for staying " current " is a joke. Skydiving is like riding a bike, once you've done it repeatedly from 12,500 ft or so, you don't forget how.

Its a way the DZ owners can take your currency and put it in their pockets.
Is this a serious post?

If the "riding the bike" poster is serious, he clearly has not seen the footage that is somewhere on this site of an experienced but uncurrent jumper going totally out of control (while being given the thumbs up sign by the alleged instructor) and then cartwheeling uncontrollably until the aad fired. Perhaps posted a couple of years ago.

I can't remember whether the topic of the discussion was about the poor instructor or the fact that people with a whole load of jumps absolutely can forget how to fall in a stable position.

Perhaps someone with a better memory than me can find this video - it may be relevant to this thread.
