Re: [potatoman] How to stop short on landing/comments on "Demo Jumper hits spectators"

This guy didn't have a clue and the last thing you wanted was him flying with his feet at the head level of the spectators. All he had to do was land straight and he couldn't do that. Again note his hand position in the photo. He's turning INTO the crowd as he crashes.

BTW if the guy in the video is reading this YOU should look at your hand position and watch it through the entire video. It will explain to you why things were happening that you didn't expect. It wasn't wind, it was you steering your canopy in a direction you didn't really want to go.
