Dumb shit you here Can't Post

Transcript of a facebook conversation I had tonight with a mate of mine. All identifying names/places blacked out.

Is this really going on with young jumpers?



xxxxxxx are funny with wingloading

how come?

xxxxxx told me on sunday I should start thinking of downsizing
And they have a student who has 30 jumps and he just bought a 170 and wingloads it at 1.4
But it hasnt arrived yet


That's pretty fucked up I reckon. APF would love to hear that


Yeh the guy was telling me and I was just like better you than me
Like I dunno if this guy has even talkex to them about it I mean he seems really cocky
And hes the guy who has had 2 chops in under 20 jumps

I hate that shit. Bet they deny it when he pounds in

Yeh

fuck me

It just seems weird
Like seriously seems like this guy has just bought the gear

hope he tries to take it somewhere else. They'll ground him for sure

Yeh like I said he hasnt jumped it yet so im keen to see if he even gets to
I questioned him about it and his reason for getting a 170 not a 190 was the container he bought only fits a 170

I won't be keen to go back there if they let him jump it. I'm not prepared to die getting hit by some fucktard who's way beyond his skill level

I reckon hed only weigh like 5kg less than me
Yeh I reckon

I bet xxxxxx'd ground him at xxxxxxx

Yeh I reckon so

Find out what loads he's on and go on alternate ones to him

Yeh im satrting to wonder if he actually would wingload at 1.4 or if he was just talking big

Nah you'd have to be 108.18kg to be at 1.4

Yeh me and you would but I dont reckon this guy would

Ohh but that includes gear. So 95kg would pretty much get you there

Yeh

I'm gonna black out the names on this conversation and see what people on the forums think

Haha alright

you jump last weekend? oh yeah Sunday

It doesn't matter where the conversation came from. The OP is soliciting comments about the *safety* of the noob jumping a wingloading that seems too high for his experience.

1.4 loading at 30 jumps = stupid.

You have quite a grasp of the obvious.

And smoking pot at a safety meeting is considered appropiate by some...

1:4:1 at 30 jumps equates into suicidal.
