  1. It was clarified at the USPA BOD meeting. First, FIA has (as far as I know) redacted any opinion. So there is no opinion as far as FIA goes. Second, USPA has confirmed that a drivers license is sufficient. Also...any competitor may anonymously submit a complaint, which will be reviewed. I can’t remember who it’s reviewed by, either the BOD or competition committee. So that’s how it stands now.
  2. You are right about changing sex to win. However someone that was a competitor and has changed their sex has now decided that he will take the female records. So it is after the fact. It’s a moot point in this instance because said person can’t beat her, however in my opinion a precedence of this should not be set.
  3. I have about 450 jumps on one of my Petra’s. At the end of the day it will always be better than ZP. It’s my go-to canopy.
  4. Spain? You do know their tech comes from NZ, right.
  5. That is categorically incorrect. Many men can pull fronts down to their lower abdomen, I haven’t seen women do that. I’m not saying that it can’t or hasn’t happened, but it’s not the norm.
  6. Anachronist, while your intentions are good, weight isint the main issue. We have NB who is one of the best ever, he’s probably 130 lbs. and we have Greg who’s probably 250, also very good. Those numbers don’t include weight or gear. We can go down a rabbit hole about speed and drag, but let’s not. Point is...there is no female competitor that is as strong as Nick at his 130 lbs. whatever happens, I guess we can decide our gender. If it comes down to that everyone will suddenly become female.
  7. Glad I could humor you, I hope you didn’t take that statement seriously. Your lol proves my point. Just because she can beat men is not relative to this situation. We could get rid of gender identity in competition all together. I’m sure that some would take issue with that also.
  8. Or we could just get rid of female records all together. If everyone wants equality, why not? We don’t have “male” records. Why the bias?
  9. It is my belief and understanding that genetically men have more body strength than women. Paticualrly upper body strength. An example would be in apes. An ape has approximately 8 times the strength of a human male. I don’t want to compete in any strength contest with an ape. If you like you can YouTube MMA fighter fights a chimp. Men have, regardless of transgender, more strength than women, particularly in the upper body. So pulling in front risers would in my opinion be a detriment for women compared to any born male. This won’t be an issue now since the female will smoke the said male. However do we want to set this standard, what about the females competing against me? Can I now set a female speed record? All it takes is a drivers license saying I’m female. That’s easy to get in California.
  10. What does everyone think about a female compitetor who has to to compete with a (LGBT) male for female records. I know it’s confusung. USPA has already made a ruling on this.
  11. I have a Sensei which is a beast. All sail re-trimmed, dives like a SOB, but just right (took a couple of tries on the lineset). Lots of bottom end. As you know Brian, the sail takes a little more aggression on the lineset due to the increased lift. Great canopy.Quote
  12. That works every time. Get nose down, pull it through the horizon and push together.

  14. Depending on how quickly I get my Petra and Sophia, I'll be in raeford for the sun path open.
  15. Obviously anything I've said may have been in haste, not really planning on someone losing teeth, that would be bad for swoop pics.
