    RIGGING TOOLS

    ParaGear and ChutingStar have plenty of tools and you can compare those prices. I recommend NOT buy a kit as it has things you may not want/need. Find a used kit bag and source out individual parts, it'll save you money...

    Seven cell 170 in Curv VC3

    I have a brand new Storm 170 in a VC3 and it fits perfectly.

    Opinions on reserve riser damage?

    Always contact the manufacturer about stuff like this. As it appears "minor" remember that this is your reserve and last lifeline. Would you chance it? Also, you may have a terminal reserve ride which has much more force, I would not want to chance it. Just something to think about...

    Skydive San Diego

    Pack area is nice and clean and in the perfect location relative to the landing area which is super grassy. Staff was helpful, caring, and professional. The initial check-in was top of the line among DZ's. Locals have been soo awesome to talk to and jump with. Plenty of experience around and a willing to share. The vibe is amazing. There was plenty of tandems there but they were still pumping out fun jumpers. Couldn't believe how many attractive women were there. Only issue, which wasn't as big of an issue as I thought was the lack of actual bathrooms. They had plenty of porta potties but they were very well maintained and very clean. Could have more to provide in food and drinks but its cool. This DZ is seriously awesome and a total hidden gem out there.

    POV cameras and Jump number.

    Can a 18 year old who just received their drivers license own and drive a Lamborghini? Can a 200lb roughly new jumper buy and jump a Stiletto 150? Yes. Should they? Probably not. But then again, these are RECOMMENDATIONS. At the end of the day, most of these things discussed don't actually directly affect anyone but the user. Sure, there are special and circumstantial cases but the responsibility and risk lie with the user. You guys don't have to attack or belittle this dude for a post or comment. Thats what this forum is for. JWest, don't be discouraged or let some of these comments bring you down. Have fun and be safe bro!

    Hey! I'd love to jump with you. I usually jump at Elsinore but want to start jumping at Eloy, especially since Im only 3 hours away. I am also working on free fly and am working on perfecting my sit. Lets stay in touch and get together whenever you get in town.

    Looking to meet new some jump buddies.

    Thanks! I got my license through the military. I love Elsinore and have jumped with different people there but never the same people lol. Eloy is nice as well but seems a little "clicky". I should try to spend more time there to make an accurate assumption. I do plan on attending the Rookie Roundup there in Eloy as well.

    Looking to meet new some jump buddies.

    Hey Im Jasen, I live in Yuma AZ. Looking to find more people to meet and jump with. Im lucky enough to be in the middle of Eloy and Elsinore. Haven't jumped at Perris or San Diego yet though. I have under 200 jumps am tired of doing solo freely lol. Lets go get some sky...

    It will be exhausting but you can fund yourself by becoming a pack ninja working on the DZ.

    That is accurate.

    circumcision..!?

    Circumcision is also a sanitary-promoting procedure as well. It is not uncommon for males who are not circumcised to encounter yeast infections...
