First IAD grad at Skydive Monroe, GA Can't Post

Hey all, my name is Seth and as of last weekend (Saturday) I was the first student IAD graduate from Skydive Monroe in Monroe, GA. I got into the sport from a future roommate of mine from Savannah who had been jumping in Palatka, FL for the past two years. From the first IAD jump at 3,500ft I was instantly hooked. I started the IAD course in February and graduated at IAD jump 13 when normally you have to go to IAD jump 15. I graduated early and had to do my first solo Saturday and another Sunday. I'm glad I finally joined this forum because I've heard so much about it and I'm excited to be here!

Thanks for having me and being so welcoming!

Seth

I'm a beer sales rep for a local distributor so I've got plenty of stock coming their way. Wink

Thanks Skymama! A friend of mine actually went to that boogie this past year and had a great time. He's living with me this year so I'm definitely planning on putting that on the calendar.

Here's a youtube video of my IAD #13 jump. Any pointers or advice would be great and helpful! This was my last jump on IAD student status and graduated two jumps early!
