Hi I'm Alexei Can't Post

Hi I'm Alexei, I just started skydiving this academic year, just thought I'd say hi. I go to bristol uni (uk) and do math. I'm on a raps course. I've done 5 jumps so far, and I'm on DPs, (I failed to get my second DP >_< ) so i got 2 more to do still. But the weather is being pants so it may be a while before I get onto freefall. anyway, err. Any tips on getting the DP so I don't mess up again? oh and er Hi. ^_^

Welcome to the forums! Smile I'm glad you've found the site. It's one way to keep busy until the weather clears for you. I'm not that familiar with the raps course. What is a DP?

a DP is a dummy pull, its like a fake ripcord you pull and show to the jumpmaster while your still on static line, its practice for when you have to pull it yourself.

Ah, DP...cool. We call that PRCP (practice ripcord pull) in the states (for the places that still have ripcords).

Remember something, DZ.com is a great resource, BUT, check ALL information with your instructors before believing it to be fact. No matter how many 1000's of jumps the person has that is saying it.
