What's your favourite exit?

Recommended Posts

Late (but not last) diving exit from the Cassa or skyvan, standing in front of "the line", timing the run, feeling the back of the plane rise just as I'm getting to the tail, hands and arms in front of my chest cupping air, riding that explosive wave, then going almost head down to blast toward the formation.
(not last so the person behind can ask "how did you stay so high for so long?")
It doesn't get any better than this!
This is the paradox of skydiving. We do something very dangerous, expose ourselves to a totally unnecesary risk, and then spend our time trying to make it safer.

6 way tube out of a skyvan.

Is that the same as we called a catapiller out the casa? Man what a fun/wild jump. If you were last hold on. LOL.
I hold it true, whate'er befall;
I feel it, when I sorrow most;
'Tis better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all.

The "Prop Blast Spiral Exit" I'm the only one that knows how to do it, cause I invented it. (True) The most spirals I've done before I got really nervous was 20, when I looked at my altimeter, I was concerned. :o I use 2 audibles now, and I wear any number of helmets.

Rolling out a C206 Rear door, while the tandems look on without knowing it is jump run. Fake falling out the door.

Their faces are priceless....

Gainer, for sure a favourite.
Exitting from two planes, always nice to see the other plane's people exit as you dive out to formation.
You have the right to your opinion, and I have the right to tell you how Fu***** stupid it is.
