Well came across this forum while drooling over gear I some day wish to have.
Figure ill post my incident from last summer, it was a real pisser as I was on my AFF 4 jump. I had an hour earlier cleared my AFF 3 jump and was all giggles, I had enough cash for 2 jumps that day BTW.
My coach and I are going through the motions quite well as he later explained to me until apparently I forgot I had legs attached to me, I went into what we both guessed was 15 -20 über fast spins.
(Note) I'm now glad this happened because I learned I will NOT freak out in an "incident" situation as I (as I'm sure all) folks wondered prior to something going awry 6000' up
Well I waved off before Coach came in and risked his own butt and I pulled on my own. Then the fun begin with my line twists!
I quickly also learned that I DID in fact pay attention in AFF class! Spread the risers and kick like you're riding a bicycle!
The rest of my jump was uneventful except when I came in hot and barrel rolled my butt to the ground while angrily yelling profanities to Coach for my previous lack of brain capacity through a radio he could not hear me through but he was was laughing hysterically in the distance as he rightfully should have!
Long story short as I yearned for redemption I ran out of funding due to money issues at home, that was my last jump....
Since then I have saved and saved (lost and re saved) and now 6 months later I have a hand full of dough to throw at my AFF, hopefully pass and move onto my coached jumps ill be starting jumping again as soon as Colorado weather warms up and I get a tad of free time
Best regards, hope everyone gets a good laugh from this one
And btw I also was smart enough to buy myself some time indoors to keep my legs under control now
