  1. I won a free tandem voucher and it was about to expire, so I had to use it. Next week I was doing AFF, I was 34 in 2005. HISPA #93 DS #419.5
  2. 1 hour drive...if this DZ closes, the next one closer is a 3 hour plane ride plus 1 hour by car. HISPA #93 DS #419.5
  3. Have a friend that on his first cutaway he had 10,000+ jumps. Im about 2000 jumps, 0 cutaways. My brother had 2 before jump 100. HISPA #93 DS #419.5
  4. Or 3 side by side wheels with another jumper horizontal inside the tube, making it a 10 way HISPA #93 DS #419.5
  5. There is a chance of a collision if a jumper is trailing and trying to catch up. You can do a bit more than 90 maybe on a big way or if you see someone under you, but going back to where you came from is very discouraged and can even get you grounded in a camp. Ive been to about 12 angle camps and have maybe 1000 angle jumps, and breakoffs are talked about a lot in the briefings and debriefings. I dont barrel roll. HISPA #93 DS #419.5
  6. I surfed full time for 25+ years, with sponsors and shit and traveled the world doing that. I stopped like 10 years ago so I cant call myself a surfer. Same here. If you quit jumping you used to be a skydiver, not anymore. Regardless of jump numbers. HISPA #93 DS #419.5

    When Right is Wrong

    "I found it worrisome that several people staunchly defended the concept that "Low Canopy has Right of Way" overrides all other considerations under canopy." THANK YOU! Many people dont understand. If you are on final and you choose a lane, STAY ON THAT LANE! Being the lower guy doesnt mean you can swerve into my lane at the last second and expect that I toggle my self into the ground avoiding your stupid ass.
  8. I was challenged once, this wont help for an organized event but it was fun. What we did was take our phones with us, exit last at the same time from a skyvan and start tracking right away with the jump run. Deploy at 3000', farthest away from the DZ wins. Loser pays both slots. HISPA #93 DS #419.5
  9. That was me for the first 50+ jumps! Praying for rain or strong winds on my way to the DZ so I could have an easy excuse not to do it. What helped me and kept me going was remembering that feeling once you step outside the plane, where nothing else matters...and the feeling when you land where nothing is more alive than you. Those 2 thoughts for me were stronger than any fear. HISPA #93 DS #419.5
  10. http://www.dropzone.com/cgi-bin/forum/gforum.cgi?post=4416268 Unit fired within its parameters during a swoop and resulted in a fatality. Saw it a few times at the DZ actually. All 3 times I witnessed, no injuries. I've also witnessed 3 Vigil fires on final with no injuries...and pretty sure not the same 3 you saw. 1 in PR, 1 in Deland, 1 in Sebastian. HISPA #93 DS #419.5
  11. Won a tandem jump on a radio station contest. "Third caller wins blahblah" kinda thing. Had the certificate on my glove box almost to the date it expired. Did the tandem and the next weekend I was doing AFF. HISPA #93 DS #419.5
  12. me: 1,800+ jumps, 0 cutaways my brother: 2 cutaways before his 100 jump friend 1: 18,000+ jumps, 45+ cutaways friend 2: 10,000+ jumps before his 1st cutaway as you can see, they dont necessarily relate HISPA #93 DS #419.5
  13. Hey TK! Apparently what you think is very important to the universe! This guys cant sleep if they have a different opinion HISPA #93 DS #419.5
  14. Jason Gonzalez (Puerto Rico) has about 14,000 HISPA #93 DS #419.5
