Be careful out there. I got in one jump this afternoon. Well...the last time I jumped it was about 55 degrees on the ground. Today it was about 80....with 90% humidity. Whats that mean boys and girls? The air is thin!!! I did my usual 200 plus degree front riser approach. Went to double fronts for a couple seconds...let up....the canopy is diving. Still diving....still diving....Uh Oh....Dig Dig Dig....and come to a stop about 1 foot off the ground. Ruined my surf!!!! So...lesson learned. Pay attention to the Density altitude and be extra cautious when it's a major difference since the last time you jumped. Happy swooping!!!
PS....Chuck! Rodney Cruz was down here today doin some of that nasty stinkin belly flying with Nemesis...
