This was a post I had made over in the Swooping and Canopy Control forum in this thread, but I don't think it was doing much good over there.
Would anyone else besides me like to see a new forum under "related sports" for Groundlaunching/Speedflying? There seems to be a lot of talk about these disciplines here in the swooping and canopy control forum, but I think they are unique enough to warrant a separate forum.
And I know there are other groundlaunching/speedflying forums out there, but I'm referring to here on dz.com so that we can discuss things from a skydiver's perspective.
Not many saw the thread, but Kolla loved the idea and says "Sangiro - pretty pretty please??"
This sport/discipline will be bigger than skydiving as a whole in years to come considerng the amount of companies producing gear for the new sport.
It may well entice some more traffic from the paragliding community also, I envision the paragliding speed flyers, taking up skydiving to forfill the ever increasing need for speed in the form of high perfomance approaches.
