  1. hi i am looking for skydivers from hibalstow in the uk. we are having some problems with one of your students on basejumper.com to understand what the problem is please go to this thread. http://www.basejumper.com/cgi-bin/forum/gforum.cgi?post=2945387;sb=post_latest_reply;so=ASC;forum_view=forum_view_collapsed;;page=unread#unread its been a while since i did a clicky and cant remember how its done. maybe check out some of his other posts as well to see what i mean. he seems to think he is an 'elite' skydiver and wants to start basejumping now with only 31 skydives.nothing anyone says to him seems to make any difference. his username is ukmarkj does that ring a bell anyone? i wondering if someone could alert his instructors to what is going through his tiny mind as they may be the only ones he may listen to, though maybe not!!! i am hoping the next time he turns up to the dz one of the intstructors will take him to one side and explain in a way he will understand. if at all possible contact his wealthy mummy and daddy and tell them to make sure he is not given the money to buy base equipment untill he has learned to skydive. my hovercraft is full of eels.
  2. what organisation/company is the writer from? my hovercraft is full of eels.
  3. there is potential for abuse of this system isnt there?. my hovercraft is full of eels.
  4. oops im sorry, in England SWAG is slang for a criminal's loot...i honestly didnt realize you are an Australian.... i apologise for the old put on a prison uniform and tell him to sit in the bush joke as well... my hovercraft is full of eels.
  5. Didn't Phoenix Fly have a helmet as one of their products a while back? I can't seem to find it now, but I do recall some discussion of it. The Stinger, I've used one for my last 100 odd skydives. Good helmet at a good price, don't know why they discontinued it. i found it! http://www.phoenix-fly.com/products/helmet_stinger.htm my hovercraft is full of eels.
  6. i have always used an open faced helmet so far but im also keen on finding a full face which is tracking/wingsuit friendly. i was thinking a full face without a smooth profile visor is not aerodynamic at all for chin on sternum tracking. base rig manufacturers seem to be going for the tracking aerodynamics, surely the helmet is a very important part of this? thoughts anyone? i hope you persue your line of enquiry with the helmet manufacturer but add a flip up visor (removable)for the aerodynamics. this may be a good question for the wingsuit forum. my hovercraft is full of eels.
  7. it most certainly does sound like a dangerous mission.! you need a black and white striped shirt and some trousers with little arrows printed all over them, get a sack with SWAG printed on the side, dont forget the balaclava!!. now go and fiddle with the lock on the gate for 3 minuites, then run and hide in the bushes and see who turns up.. report back to this thread tomorrow morning at 07.30 sharp with the results of your mission. btw wait in the bushes for at least 4 or 5 hours as "they" may delay their arrival at first just to fool you. my hovercraft is full of eels.
  8. ALL of them!!!! that must have kept you awake for a while!!! when you say broke under the cascades do you mean below ? so you mean the A- B cascade or was it just the B lines that broke? can someone point me at the particular thread space is talking about. very interesting stuff! my hovercraft is full of eels.
  9. so, what exactly is it that you are trying to tell us? my hovercraft is full of eels.
  10. do you know which lines broke? space, i was thinking that for an in sequence opening my money is on the centre A lines going first but certainly centre lines. and for an out of sequence opening all bets are off, surely it depends on what goes wrong. i would guess the first lines to tension would be the first to break. my hovercraft is full of eels.
  11. but did you learn anything? do you listen now? my hovercraft is full of eels.
  12. i apologise dan , ive just checked the thread. http://www.basejumper.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=400&start=0&postdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight= and you did ask nicely. edited to add: im not surprised to see you in this thread desperate dan, when i read andys first couple of posts it reminded me of you. my hovercraft is full of eels.
  13. and then you begged for your rig back accusing the people who got it down of theft? my hovercraft is full of eels.
  14. arent you the guy who static lined his rig from an antenna (sensitive site) and then left it hanging from a tree in the sun for a week? my hovercraft is full of eels.
  15. stop begging for attention get off the internet, go outside and learn something. my hovercraft is full of eels.
