I bet the kids loved it! The winds were a little less than perfect yesterday here in the greater Houston area! I don't live too far from Sharpstown and I could not even play frissbee with my dog because of the winds! Who did it?:)

Yeah, it was a downwinder. Not too many options when you're long, and you're landing on top of a parking garage and the only outs are a freeway and a mall parking lot on the busiest shopping day of the year. No one was hurt, and the kids were loving it anyway. And NO, it wasn't me! :P
Oh, hello again!

Man, this reminds me of another Santa-Demo gone wrong, you guys remember of Niggel Roggoff? in december '98 he was performing a high performance landing into a stadium in england when he hit the overhanging roof over the audience, parachute collapsed and he fell from there with a small canopy that only had something like two or three cells inflated,
aweful bone crushing accident...
