I'm okay little sore today, but my instructors did say my flare was a little late. I was instructed to flare approx 15 ft off the deck. The ground came up pretty quick. I was worried about flaring too soon. I suppose it takes a few times to get the jist of it. Does your body slightly pendulum out from under the canopy during the flare?

This might help to better understand flare charcteristics of the canopy. he seems to know what he's talking about. but continue to talk to everyone at your DZ and gather as many tips as you can, and find out what works best for you. Take this with a grain of salt because i'm still a newb.
That's what I was thinking too. The other day I retrieved a frisbee off the top of my roof and used a PLF to get down. On my two canopy rides I was fully committed to PLF's but my feet were in front of me
Thanks a lot man, very informative video. I like technical explanations it helps me visualize what is going on. On my descents I was no brakes at 16ft to full brakes thru the last 15 ft. My question is.....at what point do people go from full flight to a braking condition on decent?
