    Valkyrie 67 demo first jumps

    Charlie, you still fly like a toggle monkey. Get in touch with me and let me know when your jumping and where. I will make a trip to come make some jumps with you. It's been a few years. Some people analyze everything their parachute does and others fly by the seat of their pants.
  2. Agreed. Excessive hunting is going to increase your chance of linetwists. The canopy is extremely hard to steer when the slider is stuck up at the top. Ian hell, quit trying to steer it, just enjoy the ride! it is a high performance canopy after all. they tend to throw you around more when you pay too much attention to them. just relax and let them hunt, they will eventually come back to where they belong.

    Texas Swoop Comps 2009

    Your answer goes both ways.... true, but think of it this way, do you want to compete or do you not? when I was competing i would find myself driving all day to get to a comp on the next day. how bad do you want it? also, dave is right, you could always organize your own comp. trust me, that job sucks. "if you build it, they will come"

    What Can We Do About Skyride II

    I have personally witnessed some of those stories when I was at the farm. I have also personally witnessed the other stories when I was at ASC. everything POPS posted, I have seen happen, more than once.
  10. +1 I found that this was one of the hardest things for my brain to grasp when I was learning to swoop.
