    READ AND COMMENT:::SONY CX!!

    Look around. You can find a cx100 on e-bay.
  2. If the spot is long I'll never know it until I flip back belly to earth. I just have to trust the TI notices and deploys high for me (which they do). I never see the ground until after their deployment and go off timing. When I flip over and look at my alti. and it still says 5k+ I know to look for DZ and pull high.
  3. He actually meant the 29th, 30th, 31st. Too many years at 14.5!

    Body Board Flying

    You'd jump out and bye bye board in the blink of an eye.

    VERY intersting thought

    In that case the same can be said for crossing the street, swimming under water, etc.

    Q & A's about the Monarch

    Old canopy. Flies somewhat like a Sabre. Big difference from a Nitron (which flies like a larger canopy with a lot of flare) to a smaller Monarch. The flare power will be less and I think you'll like the way your Nitron flies much better.

    First AFF, injured but looking for more.

    Busted mine (Coccyx Fracture) on my 2nd AFF jump in March. It still hurts if I sit wrong. No quick fix, but I jumped the next day.

    First Jump

    Glad to see you enjoyed it. Dane is one of the best guys you'll ever meet and the finest skydiver you'll ever meet. Glad you enjoyed it. PM me if you are interested in the first jump course. You'll be hooked for life I promise. As for the arch, it was your tandem jump, if you got down to the ground, you did great!

    Starting AFF

    Sounds like you are progressing fairly normally. It takes some time before you can recall much about the dive flow. Talk with your instructors about your progressions and about your stability concerns and arch!

    Wow, I'm shaking just typing this.

    Welcome to the dark side. It's a great sport. Also the DZ makes a great place to run your bike full out down the runway on off days!
