  1. I probably dumped a student a little high last weekend because of some confusion between JM's. I had to be honest with the student and let him know he didn't do anything wrong, I was worried about some other stuff. But twice is too much. Now you're just being a huge dick.

    Spectre

    Great all-around; im a beggining swooper and this canopy helped me figure the setup and dive procedure. however, if you are far from the dz, prepare to give your arms a workout while holding the rear risers for a few minutes to even out the glide slope.
  3. Im doing a 270 now at about 500-600 ft. and I end up high. I keep hearing 'slow down the turn' but that seems to give even less dive, and I am initiating from brakes.
  4. I am thinking about starting to do a 180 and then another 270 for more speed and more dive. Im on a sabre2 135 (1.5:1) and I just dont feel like Im getting a lot of dive out of it. Any suggestions? Thanks, Nate
  5. My team is looking for a point flyer to sub in during the SkyQuest competition this weekend (Nov 19 and 20). This is a ten round competition in Lakeland, FL. We scored a 10.5 at Nationals this year. Team information and videos are available at www.airlockskydiving.com. If interested, please email nate@airlockskydiving.com asap! Thanks! Nate Airlock

    4-Way VRW

    This is AWESOME!! The camera man would be a much more aggressive slot to fly! Wow, I have been having fun with 4-way in the past year but I can see this being way fun in a year or two when I have the skills to progress into this. What a great focus for all these freeflyers to have. It seems like a lot of un-organized free fly dives could be converted to very productive practice dives for this competition. man, that would be the shit!
  10. When my team was training at ASC, June 26th I believe, we met Nate. My parents were there taking pictures of the team and when they called me for a shot (my name is Nate as well) he kept turning around so they took this one of him. Its a good shot and I'd like to mail the photo to friends or family. My email address is nsf@wrek.org. My deepest regards, Nate Fisher
