Suggested rig for big guy Can't Post

Okay, I'm a big dude, 6'7" 300 lbs.

I want to get into skydiving and after reading some on this forum, I realize, my best hope is to get a rig of my own since I doubt ant DZ around me will have a rental rig to suit my hughness.

I need some advice on where to look and what to get. It would be awsome to find something used, but I know that is a long shot.

And advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Blake

According to your profile you are from Louisiana. I did my training in Moss Point, MS (Gold Coast Skydivers) Call them and see if they still hae the big boy rig to train you. If not let me know.

Sweet I trained on that rig as well. I have not been out to the newest location yet, but I hope to see you there. Keep it up!
