    Good DZ for my brother

    Hey Mike DQ here from Spaceland Houston. I run the tandem department here and would love to take your family on a jump. All of our instructors are qualified and should take care of them. Cya soon and feel free to send a message if needed. DQ@skydivespaceland.com
  2. Camera on student, not telling the student to arch while dealing with line twist and improper emergency procedures while pulling handles or handle in this case. If it smells like a Lodi and it sounds like a Lodi. It must be a Lodi. Lol
  3. Definitely not faster than a katana. It does carry farther distance. And now they want to be known as Icarus world lol.

    Skylark odyssey

    Do it. I know nothing about you, or even met you. No info in your profile and no info in your post? Also you are asking about some euro rip off canopy so what does that tell ya! Go ask someone at your dz

    Valkyrie pics

    First my info. 2000 solo canopy flights. Coming from a Velocity 96 loaded at 2.7, haven't jumped any other xbraced canopies besides a 103 velocity, 90% of my skydives have been focused on swooping or high performance canopy flight. Not sponsored and I don't compete. Now on a Valkyrie 96. I only made 2 jumps on mine because the weather has been shit but it was awesome. Openings were better than a velocity. Tons of range and power. Can't wait to fly it more and fly it harder. https://vimeo.com/120315122

    Skydiving in Minneapolis?

    1. mid april to end of october is the season for STC but Chip Falls jumps all year out of 182s. 2. This last couple years the fun jumper numbers have been going up with a strong freefly and angle scene growing and as always a strong belly rw group. they have one of Spacelands super fast caravans and you won't get bumped for tandems. STC also has a huge trailer park that is full fun jumpers every weekend rain or shine. 3. as i said above ChipFalls in wisconsin jumps all year when their runway is good to fly on, grass strip. folks also go up to Soup but weather up there can be iffy with the big lake but awesome views.

    Swoopy summer

    This is a repost of your own post, guessing of your own video. I'll give you the credit for it being some amazing flying but it's not skydiving and a repost.

    Jedei canopies?

    Airlock canopy from the 90's. More advanced canopy then the Pilot. Have fun on windy days with the airlocks.

    Carpooling to Skydive Wissota

    you could save gas money and drive a quarter the distance to Skydive Twin Cities.

    Neos vs Velocity

    if you flew a velo, you are going to think the neos is shit.

    how do you stow your rds lanyard

    with full rds you will always get some line burn. i'm guessing it's on your center cell top skin near the tail?

    Kitesurfer seeking skydivers advice

    in the skydiving world we don't use anything like that but in base jumping for static line jumps break cord is used. it's 80 pound break cord.
