Artificial turf landing area

Recommended Posts

I've played sports on artificial turf and that stuff will cut you up if you slide.  If you are doing a demo with a jump suit its probably not bad on you.  The typical freeflyer in shorts might not like the result.  I was also thinking if it can cut into a human easily then its possible it could wear on a canopy easily too.

There are also some concerns with the rubber pellets causing cancer.  Landing might kick up a lot of those.  

I know it sounds cool especially for warmer climates where water is a commodity.  I'm just not sure its the right mix of materials especially for those who don't have pro rating skills.
