Funny Sit-Fly Attempt
Well everyone this is me trying to sit-fly. This is my third attempt at it and as you can see in the video... i still suck. I was laughing my head off though during the jump every time i flipped over and lost it. Hope you all enjoy!
Ah the memories....... I have more than a few of videos just like that. My FF instructor always had a camera and dubbed the video for me. I have maybe 20-40 FF jumps from my progresion on one tape. It is funny as shit! But once you get it......It's great.
Congrats! It took me dozen of jumps to do something that resembled a sit fly. Once you’ve learned you will wonder why it took so long. Just one note: when learning the basics of freefly stick with 2-way, even if you jump with a coach. The other guy in the jump was very far but he could have been floating above you creating a risk of collision. Actually, I recommend you only jump with a coach at this stage. Although you’ll jump less, your learning curve will be much faster and you won’t develop bad habits that may take even more jumps to get fixed. Never lose eye contact with a jump partner, especially if he is not proficient enough. Believe me, I almost got myself killed in a freefall/ canopy collision. Luckily I was able to survive and learn with the experience. Enjoy your training jumps!
Thanks guys for the input. I have done a few more FF jumps and can now pretty much hold a sit the whole time. It will take me a while to get into it sometimes but once i get it I am able to hold it ok. Still working on it! :)
