Re: [Deimian] Question about coming back from a long spot

In reply to:
I guess that would be canopy dependent, but in general, what would be the way?

Not a stupid question! It's canopy and jumper dependent. Only way to figure out what works best for you and your canopy is to go play with it.

In the canopy course we teach, we have jumpers do a hop and pop exiting about 2 miles upwind of the spot. They then try both sitting in deep brakes and using rears and decide for themselves which gets them further back.

You can leave the brakes stowed if you're using rears, but don't forget to unstow them long before your hard deck (imho, easier to unstow them),
