For Laughs Can't Post

I posted this on Facebook but since the general audience doesn't know anything about skydiving, this video isn't as funny to them so I thought I'd share with you all. Maybe it's just funnier to my instructors and I but I hope you enjoy and get a chuckle or two!

I was never coined "graceful" that's for sure! Laugh

And for the students out there, you can learn from my mistakes! Wink

HAHAHA thank youLaugh

you're exit was very nice!

but you're attempted back flip (I think?) was hilarious!!!

You'll want to give yourself more momentum next time, pull your legs in to your chest and bring your arms in across your chest as you through your head back (your body will follow) all that in one fluid motion.Smile Approx. 3/4 through the flip you can re-arch and assume your normal position. Give it another go :)

Haha, thanks for the advice! Yeah it was supposed to be a back flip! I kept thinking "I'm supposed to do something else." then I remembered a bit late the legs part! Laugh

I'm really looking forward to another try at it. It was so much fun and now that I know that I can get stable after becoming unstable I feel way more confident (which I was lacking a lot of before).

Maybe tomorrow after I pass my level 7!! Smile

Haha, yes, by far the best part of the video! One of my instructors want to give me the nickname "dolphin" for that very pose! Laugh
