Sudden loss of balance

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I am new to skydiving and have 30 jumps in total. I have only done belly to earth jumps so far and feel that I am very stable at this point.

the other day I tried to change things around a little bit and barell rolled over on my back and maintained that position for a while followed by some frontflips.

I simulated a break off and tracked for a few seconds before maintaining belly position again prior to pull.

I was stable on my belly for a few seconds when suddenly it felt like a vacuum was created under my legs and I completely lost balance and ended up standing up before getting back to belly position. At first I thought it was a premature opening..

Any ideas what this could have been? Haven’t encountered this before.
