Re: [andy2] bleeding off altitude on final leg?

In reply to:
If it looks like youre going to overshoot your landing target and possibly crash into the highway, trees, or some other hazard, but you have enough room to bleed off some altitude, what is the best way for a beginner to do this? With gentle S turns, or with a few high up flares to stop foward motion? Which is the most effective? Thanks.

I noticed that JTVal has already mentioned this but I like to use my front risers in this sort of scenario. The only downside for the newbie is that it is going to add extra forward and vertical momentum that you may not be used to and may not be comfortable with. Try this at altitude first and then try it with some wind in your face before you try it on a no-wind jump. Wink
