    Thats so true, the same priciples are there for springboard diving aswell, which i also do. I do remember saying to myself on my last 4 way, 'dont do that again', and thins like that. Next time it will be this is what im going to do.

    Levels. Proximity. Grips. Thats seems like a good way to think about it!! Then you have words to say, and you no what order to do the things I might try 3 ways aswell, maybe that WILL help with getting used to there being more people in the sky. Oh well what ever i do, its all fun. I dont REALLY mind people laughing at me when i get to the ground

    Yeah ive learnt my lesson about reaching for grips. I found my self in the right spot for the first time, but just a bit high, and not thinking i reached down for the grips. I went right over the top of the others So i wont be doing that again. Next time i will keep eye contact so i can match the fall rate and get in the right spot and then look for the grips!! Im determined to get it right tho, next time i go up ill think more before i do silly things that stuff up the jump. Practice practice practice!!!!

    Yeah that makes sense. Do you know how many people have trouble with the 4 ways? I have spoken to some people at my DZ and they all seem to get it pretty much straight away!! On the 2 ways my instructor kept a steady fall rate and i had to match it. I had no problem with that, so i guess if i react quicker when im starting to pop up or sink out, it will help? Should i think about that first? Most of the time im to busy thinking about the grips i need to get to.
  5. Congrats dude, it just keeps getting better from here

    Yeah im going to do some more 2ways before i do my 4 ways again!! I was told the same thing by my instructor about the following your head!! That was my problem in the first one, but the second one i did a really good slow fall, But when i finally got my stuff together it was break off time!! I think i will try the relaxing thing, cos that worked for me aswell, in my 2 ways, But 4 ways are so much more stressfull, and it feels like there is so much to think about

    Yeah all my 2 way and 4 way have been with an instructor so far. And some of them have been video'd. Im just getting really frustrated with myself because i went through all my 2 way B-rels with no problems, they rocked, and now that i get to the 4 ways i cant do it!! It might be because i dont want to stuff up the jump for everyone else, or i might have been having a bad day!! I dont know, i just wish i could do the 4 ways as well as the 2 ways!! Should there be any difference? I mean beside there being 3 other people instead of one?

    Im having trouble with fall rate on my 4-ways, on my first one i ended up being way above everyone else with no hope of getting down, and my next one i kept sinking out (was with different people) I have done 3 of them now and just cant seem to work out the fall rate thing. I havent had a problem when its just me and 1 other person. Does anyone have any suggestions to help with this?
  9. Beer for everyone on Friday!!!
