  1. Never heard of Chet Poland, what did he do for me. Dave D830 http://www.skydiving.co.za
  2. Not yet. I might have to pack my own rig when I go to another dz at the end of the month I dont jump the rig much any more, it was my first rig and I only use it on wingsuit jumps, nice big square. Noticed the reserve was packed a year ago so I better get that done as well. Dave D830 http://www.skydiving.co.za
  3. There was a time in my life where I took anyone. I thought I was invisible and could handle anything. I have taken quads and I have taken a student in excess of 250 pounds, take into consideration I am at a high altitude dz, 5500 ft The youngest I've taken is 5 yrs old, not the youngest I've seen. Each have there own risks. I dont feel like dealing with any aditional risk so I have set the following restriction. My weight limit is 100kgs(220) No arguments, the landings are just too fast over that weight and I think I scare the safety staff My age limit in 9yrs old, anything younger than that and I'm scared the child wont listen to me and try something stupid on landing. If you cant walk the 100m to boarding point you staying on the ground, there are just so many things that can go wrong with quads and cripples. Dave D830 http://www.skydiving.co.za
  4. Dude, there is only 1 important skydiver and that is you. Skydiving is a very personal sport and we all get out of it what we put in. So, decide what you want and make sure you stay alive to tell the stories. Dave D830 http://www.skydiving.co.za

  7. I'm looking at the video market for new toys. Th FS200 is cheaper than the CX100 has more memory and has the thread the SX40 does not have. I was wondering if anyone has jumped it successfully. Dave Dave D830 http://www.skydiving.co.za
  8. I thought I'd pop in and report my first incident. It was about 2 weeks ago, 8 Aug, I havent had access to the net. Once I get home in a week I'll post the video.
