  3. Skydive Abel Tasman (Motueka) was a good option back when I was in country. Not sure if it still is currently active with the border control and tourism hit.
  4. 2,500 tandems here, wish they were all on Icarus, spot on about the toggle configuration as well.
  5. You need 500 jumps at a lot of them, not just the C. Life is ez On the dz Every jumper's dream 3 rigs and an airstream
  6. You can hook your harness and risers up to suspension points and practice on the ground Life is ez On the dz Every jumper's dream 3 rigs and an airstream
  7. I know Mitchell, Kozak and maybe a few more from your crew. I doubt you followed their advice when it came to buying that VK. Everyone so far ahead of the progression recommendations has a story they tell themselves. Fact is, 2.6 is an outrageous WL for anybody with your experience. This is coming from someone who bought a Velo 103 at 700 jumps, so I took the similar risks, here I am 3000 jumps later still jumping 103 VK... not saying something bad will result but it's a red flag.

  8. 700' is too low for 270 with a VK at 2.6. I'm above 800 and only loading 2.3... just my opinion. Life is ez On the dz Every jumper's dream 3 rigs and an airstream
  9. Totally correct, recovery arc will never be like a speedwing, mainly due to lineset length. Maybe a stiletto 150 but you are Lready pushing the w/l recommendations if your jump #s are accurate. Life is ez On the dz Every jumper's dream 3 rigs and an airstream
  10. Interesting debate, while I personally believe psychic readers are scammers in long tradition, there is emerging scientific evidence that the human brain is a quantum computer, and that the information it stores is not lost after death, but folds back into the universe, a soul if you will. The theory is called Orch OR and can explain where EEG rhythms originate in our brains.http://www.express.co.uk/news/science/728897/LIFE-AFTER-DEATH-consciousness-continue-SOUL Life is ez On the dz Every jumper's dream 3 rigs and an airstream
  11. Anyone using Chipolo? $25 per unit, 200' range and 12 mo battery apparently. We have a lot of trees, could be a good compromise vs the Iota cost. https://chipolo.net/ Life is ez On the dz Every jumper's dream 3 rigs and an airstream
  12. Bump, is this a no go? Life is ez On the dz Every jumper's dream 3 rigs and an airstream
  13. 5 chops in 2,400 tandems 1. Excessive line twists 2. Lineover 3. Streamer, main packed wet 4. Tension knots 5. More tension knots Life is ez On the dz Every jumper's dream 3 rigs and an airstream

  15. Anyone else think it might be useful to have a written section on unusual situations? Strut hang-up, cameraman entangled with drogue, etc. ? Life is ez On the dz Every jumper's dream 3 rigs and an airstream
