Working on My AFF now Can't Post

Hey everyone I am John.. Currently taking my AFF course @ Cross Keys in New Jersey.. I am new to the "sport".. Looking to buy a parachute if anyone has any advice for me.. I am 5'11 and 165-170 lbs.. I was thinking a 170 but I wasn't too sure.. By the time I am ready to use it I will have 10 jumps in..

Thanks!
John

Welcome to the forums! Smile Have you asked your instructor about the right canopy size for you yet?

Welcome to the forums man! Do what skymama says though and speak to the peeps in the know at your DZ, either your instructors or other experienced canopy pilots. They have seen you land and will be able to advise you best.

Stay safe

Awesome that you're jumping at Cross Keys...I am on level four now in Sebastian at their "sister" dz, I guess....a lot of the guys who work at Sebastian will go up to Cross Keys for season up there. In fact, Yonaton, who I was straped to for my first tandem, is up there already! I will definitely be jumping there during the spring/summer/fall. I can't wait!!
