  1. So is it mandatory for you guys over the pond to have to do tandem jumps before you start AFF?
  2. Greetings, great read and good that your still jumping, hang on in there as it does get a lot easier / more comfortable
  3. Hi all, So im looking to buy my first rig, i am 5'7" with an inseam of 28.5" and weigh 182 lbs. I'm looking at 2nd hand gear to start me off, i have spoken to my instructors and they say i should be looking for a 170 or be conservative and go for a 190, i like the conservative approach. So anyway i have seen a Jav Odyssey for sale with a saffire II 190 and nano 193 res in it, the rig is located a good few miles from me and the guy isnt available till next weekend, no biggie but i have the container info now but i just dont understand what it all means, i guess what i am wanting to know is what will the fit be like so i dont waste my time driving down for it to be totally unsuitable, so here are the numbers... MLW 17-1 Yoke C Leg pads 23 Lateral 25 J4K C-17 Any help really appreciated.
  4. Depends if im in the car or on the bike, the car takes me about 40 minutes, the bike i can do it in about 25 minutes
  5. That'll teach me to watch it at work with the sound down in stealth mode while i should be working lol
  6. Has anyone noticed the video says its a saber 1 yet the logo on the canopy is an icarus safire
  7. Thanks everyone for the tips / advice, some of them making real sense, as has been said its something what will come to me with practice, for the time being this weekend when i am back at the DZ i am going to spend the whole day just packing packing packing, one of the guys i did the course with spent the day there yesterday packing then the last few hours went through undoing twists with one of the packers and today he has his tangle test and if this goes ok he will get his packing cert, so this just proves to me that with practice it will come, just need more practice and a bit of patience while i am in the learning stage
  8. Hi all, so on Friday i did a packing course at the DZ as its a requirement to be able to pack / fault find etc to obtain the B licenece, its like a dark art, it took me 6 hours to pack a chute and even then i wouldn't let anyone in the world jump it, the hardest part was doing the S folds and getting it into the d-bag, i know its going to take lots of practice to become proficient at it but has anyone got any tips to help along the way at all. Cheers.
  9. Hey everyone, Well after poor weather lately here in the UK, i finally managed to get all my consol jumps completed along with CH1 and now i am officially a licensed skydiver, i'm absolutely buzzing and cant wait to keep the journey moving and learning more, but most of all, have some fun
  10. That i am afraid is something i cannot tell you anything about, i am still only a little fledgling student at the mo, but hoping to change that this coming weekend lol. You could always drop them a message on facebook, they are pretty good at replying so you should get the info you need pretty quickly. https://www.facebook.com/skydivelangar/
  11. I can vouch for Langar, my local DZ, 2 caravans jumping from 10 till 8 pm
  12. Hey there, enjoy every minute of it, i am still student status but now cleared to self supervise, all i can say is every day i go i have to have refresher training on my emergency procedures, its kind of drilled in to me that once i pull and do my count and check my canopy, then its, 'is it big? is it square? is it damage free?, if any of those is a no then its time to cut away, but like i said i am still a student so dont take what i say as being correct but listen to your instructors and do exactly what they teach you, it really is the most amazing thing in the world to do. And most of all, have fun
  13. Hi all, bit of an update, so the weather in the uk over last few days has been really nice so yesterday i spent the day at the DZ and did 4 more jumps and went from the level 4 right through to being cleared to self supervise myself for my 10 consolidation jumps, to say i am happy is an understatement. Levels 6 & 7 with the backloop & tracking was amazing fun and i cant wait to get back up there now later on today Cheers
  14. I have been back to the DZ a number of times since then but the weather has been really crap with lots of low cloud, the joys of the UK, got the next 3 days off work so plan on being there each day so fingers crossed now. It's my wedding anniversary on Wednesday so i told the wife i'll take her out for a meal, they do a great breakfast at the DZ
  15. Thanks for the comments, i can be my own worst enemy sometimes over analysing things and beating myself up about things but i feel much better prepared for my next jump now
