It would be MUCH more fun to talk about the WORST "pilots" we know. All this butt-kissing is unnecessary. I now consider it stevo-ing.Wink

I'll throw out another vote for Jay Mo for the traditional comp events. He brings the heat!

As for the freestyle, I give much respect to Andy Farrington, Jeffro, Craig G. (Yeah, him) and JT.

As to who I try (not very well) to model my flying after, that would be Clint, and JC. The both have the smoothest, cleanest style IMHO.Smile

Steve-O was a freeflyer (ADD #3), and as far as freestyle goes Noah was bringing the heat at the end of last year.....complex tricks and forever water contact.

I agree with the general response but would also like to put my 2 cents in with the pilots that are teaching skills to up-and-coming jumpers. I have a lot of respect for great pilots that are teaching students how to fly a canopy safely and responsibly. These teachers may not be winning the medals but are teaching skills that are crucial to the survival of the sport of swooping. I myself am a student and consider my education class on "high speed approaches" priceless to my career as a skydiver.

In reply to:
Best freestlye i have seen is Vince from Babylon in Ampuriabrava. Juggling ghostrider - miracle man and a half (not sure what its called but doing a 540 thru the landing) after starting his turn blindman etc etc...

I second that.. He makes it look EZ !!

Noone else I have seen comes close when talking about freestyle.

No, he is not jumping. I did see him at The Last Big Splash in 2009 though, but he was just shooting ground video.
