as a side note...at what point do people stop saying that they are "new to the sport"? 5 years? 10? 100 jumps? 1000 jumps? 5000 jumps? what is no longer new enough to be looked down upon and considered naive? Serious question...not facitious
Serious reply.... Generally I don't take anyone seroiusly till they have 500 jumps. Most people never make it there. I expect people with less than 100 jumps to never show up again. Take a look at the number of AFF grads that still jump. Here at Zhills we have a bunch of pictures of AFF grads that I have never seen since the picture.
5 years in the sport...I think you have seen enough.
And when you stop saying things like skydiving is safe.
Have you noticed that all the experienced folks don't think that way?
