I can only imagine the amount of adrenaline flowing thru the veins of these three. (not to mention the poop of the student)

it was quite a ride! Actually, the student finally got stable and was able to proceed. Made for an interesting video though!Wink

That's the best shot of an "OH MY GOD" expression I've seen in a long time.

For those who advocate doing a tandem or a couple S/L before AFF, this shot could be used to illustrate the point. Laugh

So now the real question... did the student graduate to the next level? Tongue

Yes, his exit SUCKED, but he did "ok" on everything else. They figure they're stil gripping him on exit on level 2. His exits will get better. Crazy ... I guess.

Truthfully, I believe he was a one-shot skydiver from the word go. He took his 1st jump course MONTHS ago and had to be retrained. He seemed clueless to me when we dirt dived, but what do I know? I'm only a coach and vidiot.Wink

Is that unusual? My diveflows didn't have them letting go of me until midway thru level 3, and no ungripped exits until 5.

Was that pic taken on the hill? I never quite inverted, but the sensation of being vertical at that point was very confusing to me.

Nice sharpness, btw.

Just looks like a fun ride to me and a chance to practice a roll over too!

It is in the old levels (not sure about the new categories off the top of my head) Level 3 (or 4??) they let go.

Yes, it was on the hill.Cool

Hehe - and the student is oblivious to the two guys doing headstands on his back and is just doing what he's been taught...checking his alti! Nice picture Smile

All my "earning the money" shots are on the Skydive Paris Tn web page.
Can't get them to attach here thoughUnsure.
I am the TM in dark blue, royal blue and in the tie dye freefly suit.

It looks like he arched and then fell like an anvil unexpectedly. Did you all funnel after you did handstands (it sure looks close to that) and if so, what happened to the student after that? Just curious about details.

Yea he arched and took them for a ride for about 1800 ft just like in the photo, then both jm's popped into their slots for a stable 3-way, the chunk was stable the whole dive, just made for a good shot, so I took it.Smile
Really I was laughing and just happened to bite my trigger. (just kidding)

I think it was great that the middle guy kept those other two wings under control. Tongue

Good student.

Thats a good one dude!

I'm going to have to give Joe a hard time about snacking on the bill rig in mid air... I've worn that thing and I don't think I got as cozy with it as he is Tongue

Who's the right side jm?

And when did we start doing freefly demo's on level I?

Russell. I don't know how many times guys do this on the tandem jumps. And of course they always do it with 140# TM! Made me work my 220# butt off to stay below them!

I'm impressed at the professionalizm though... she may be forcing you to work extra hard but... you've got a huge smile on your face still... Cool

That's not professionalism, I'm just a ham whenever there's a camera around! Angelic
