Once you're under canopy, assume every other person in the air is trying to kill you.

This also works for driving...

you forgot
"when in doubt add another rotation."

When it comes to choosing a canopy, remember that you are a grown ass man, make your own decision, life is too short being told what to do. That goes for when you sell your canopy to a newbie as well. Got money??? You've got my canopy.

The best advice I ever received regarding canopy control

Trust that your canopy is going to do what you ask it to do, when you ask it to do it. Brian Germain in 2002

You just heard that last week?

Either way, it goes for way more than just your main. Same thing when picking a reserve. Same thing when choosing a pull altitude. Same thing when planning a skydive.

Hope for the best, but plan for the worst.

A good landing is when your not talking about it from a hospital bed.


Speed is life, altitude is life insurance. No one has ever collided with the sky.

If you were too high on the last run, add a 360

Swoopers always have the right of way

Never give up the gates

What's the point if you don't look good?

I have been jumping for a long time, though not much and not often. I had learned to listen to the voice in my head... When I gently pull down and hold the front riser for the final turn, there is usually a voice in my head saying: "Just a little bit more..!" I had learned that that is, actually, just the perfect time to let go of the riser.
