Knees over Slider... Radical Spiral Can't Post

In Chp2 of Brian Germain's "The Parachute & it's Pilot" book, he writes about an experience in 1987 when he hooked his knees over his slider & spiraled radically while hanging upside down.

Does anyone have any links to video of anyone doing anything like this?

Just because Brian Germain says it, doesn't make it a good idea.Wink

Well not exactly like that. lol.

Thanks for the video. Not exactly what I was looking for but I enjoyed it anyway. Who would think that could happen from flipping through your risers? Glad I never had the urge.

I don't think he meant it was a good idea. He just wrote that he did it during his first boogie. In fact he did say he nearly collided into another canopy.

The guy did exactly as u describedTongue but he flips through all the way when he looses control and now a wicked malfunction probably as a result or loading the harness one way or the other or maybe toggles in hands who knows and spiral here we come...
