  3. does this kind of rudder work when skydiving You are not now, nor will you ever be, good enough to not die in this sport (Sparky) My Life ROCKS! How's yours doing?
  4. Yup 12 years C&S and lviing it. Skydiving is one of the thing I always said I was going to do, whilst, I spent all my time and money on booze and drugs. Now I don't do either, and I have money to jump with Dude the best advice i could give to you is if your in early sobriety, jump and run, get you ass to a meeting and blow them away with feats od arial bravado. You never know who may come and and say, "Yeah i jump and it rocks" Recoveriong Alchi are in every thing niche of society. Have fun and when in doubt check a meeting out.

  6. Hi skygal3 You can drop into myDZ, it's nearly summer here, I have a spare room so you can ditch the tent. The DZ is in between the Indian Ocean and the hills, so the view is pretty special, and the weather rocks.

  7. I know it's obvious to a whole bunch of you lot, But what is a slink? When looking at a rig where do they hide, and do they bite if not looked after.? You are not now, nor will you ever be, good enough to not die in this sport (Sparky) My Life ROCKS! How's yours doing?
  8. Thanks airhead, My instructors are VERY experienced, aprox 13000 jumps between them, one does camera and one does the "float in front and show me how it should be done" bit. Both are very encouraging, which helps alot. Strangely enough the scariest part of all of this is climing out the plane not the fall or landing.

  9. I've got video of AFF 4, 5 &6 (will get 7&8 aswell) but for some reason I can't get my legs to lock into a box postion, they flayle around like a marionette You are not now, nor will you ever be, good enough to not die in this sport (Sparky) My Life ROCKS! How's yours doing?
  10. Just 3 words, "both VERY Tasty" You are not now, nor will you ever be, good enough to not die in this sport (Sparky) My Life ROCKS! How's yours doing?
  11. sure, I'll buy abeer for anyone who fronts up to collect. Pinjarra drop zone south of Perth Western australia, Friday 11th October 2002. Just mention this post
  12. I completely agree with Jose, unless you said stuff it I'm landing where they trew the balloon, just to see what happens, and you aren't going to tell us your that silly. So the onus is with the perpatrator of the drop , NOT, the victim. Just my 2cents worth You are not now, nor will you ever be, good enough to not die in this sport (Sparky) My Life ROCKS!

    whuffos

    ok people this is going to read like a dumb question, but I'm new to the forum and sport so remember "there's no such thing as stupid questions only stupid people" I understand a whufoo to be a "non-skydivier" am I correct? Also is it anacronym, how did it come about?? You are not now, nor will you ever be, good enough to not die in this sport (Sparky) My Life ROCKS! How's yours doing?

    Log book on PC

    yeah I'm certain it would, also matbe acess, but I'm not certain how to build macros or tmeplates. If someone has already done that, I'd prefer not to re-invent the wheel You are not now, nor will you ever be, good enough to not die in this sport (Sparky) My Life ROCKS! How's yours doing?
  15. there's a guy here in Perth, when we have major festivals he comes along with a few kites. He drives some pickets into the ground and anchors a harness he is wearing to the pickets. when he's flying the kites he susspended in the aire and streering the kites, the HUGE, he himslef is very small he's a little asian man (chineese i think) he'd weight about 50kg (110lbs) in wet boots and clothes.

    Log book on PC

    Does anyone know off any freeware or macros that i could use for a digtal log book. I have been SCUBA diving for over 20 years and and have all my dices logged on my PC, but I had to retropectivley logg a whole bunch of them, using a dive computers software. I'd like to do the same for my skydives, but this time start with a digital book instead of entering a bucket load of data later on.

    Real or Fake?

    I think possibly real, I train with a few women who are that toned, and a couple that are much more so,(there is a body fittness comp soon). But if the lights are lowand my specs are off, it don't matter You are not now, nor will you ever be, good enough to not die in this sport (Sparky) My Life ROCKS! How's yours doing?
  19. Hi guys, I'm kinda new here and to Skydiving, just wondering if there are any fellow Australians in this gathering? You are not now, nor will you ever be, good enough to not die in this sport (Sparky) My Life ROCKS! How's yours doing?

  21. I'm about to do AFF 5 and more control I am given the more freaked it makes me, which in turn hightens the buzz. Lets face it if it didn't get your adenilin going you wouldn't be doing it. I relatio to your landings, i read a few posts here that talk about radio asistance, but nothing about physical TA asisstance. My DZ had a break in and lost all their radios so my last 3 jumps have been on visuals only. I find that when I'm focussed on what my TA is doing it's easier to glide in and land. Mind you this comment is made from the massive ammount of 4 jumps I have done, so puhaps sofar I've just been dead lucky.

  22. Hi, I just finished my 4th AFF Jump and landed it for the 1st time Jump one , rolled around in mud Jump 2 forward tucked roll 'cause I screwed up Jump 3 didnt ket the feet moving Jump 4 "Listened to the TA and didnt take my eyes off of him, did what i was instructeed to do and it worked a treat. Made the jump a much bigger buzz. Since your JM will be on the DZ before you ask them to guide you in (if they don't alreddy) using signals or radio.
