Nice vid with the GoPro on your foot. I mean, what else do you do with your feet anyway? Just a big GoPro mount.

It doesn't give the best view in freefall but was nice for landing. It was clearly windy, just from seeing the canopy breathe before landing. Great view as you instantly start getting dragged backwards on landing until you can reel in your big canopy. Sporty.

yes my whole body below the waist is a big GoPro mount -I'm going to try it on my knee next- (would of been good to have one on each foot- giving us a view of what the rest of the formation was doing).

Yes it was windy, even TK pulled out of a load soon after watching a few canopies collapse in their base leg or final.

It was great fun to slide along, despite thinking that canopy was going to drag me to the cement -came close- but what the heck i was allready on the ground nothing more then road rash would have come from that. (which I got anyways for some bizarre reason)

same with my muff dive final but at least that time i was sliding on my *ss Wink

today I'm going to test jump a different pair of gimpFF pants... the old ones must retire some day...
and today is that day Smile

shall see if these new pants- with some design changes will let me fly stable or will I turn into a tumbling fool
