I am new to this place and would like to briefly introduce myself. I live in Switzerland, 34 years of age and have jumped five times so far, one of them being an AFF-Level 1-jump two years ago. Since then I am totally addicted to skydiving. Whenever I look up into the sky, I see myself up there!
I have been contemplating to get into it for real and enrol on an AFF course but I really feel nervous about it for two reasons:
I have a very little disability on my right foot, its stiff, I can move it up and down only slightly. But actually it's more the landing part that really makes me jumpy. As well as on the tandems and on the AFF Level 1 I couldn't land on my feet. I plain and simply forgot to flare! Went all to fast before I could react.
This is no reason to quit is it and could you guys give me some hints on flaring? I'd really appreciate it.
