    Good Helmets

    Excellent, Thank you. I read some reviews on Bonehead Guner and it seems most people Did not like the chin strap because it came undone in free fall and they lost the helmet. Not my idea of fun. -"It's amazing the kinds of things you think about when there's no time to think." TOWER LADDER 44...FDNY, SOUTH BRONX

    Skydive The Farm

    Did my jumps 1-21 at the Farm. Everyone greeted and welcomed me right away willing to teach and share their knowledge. Wealth of knowledge at the farm in every aspect of the sport making learning on a fast pace VERY easy. Everyone is VERY helpful and wants to see you succeed and do well with everything as much as you want to. When waiting for the next load there is always someone showing video or jokes being thrown around. It is a ton of fun, Will miss it very much. I would tell anyone either just getting into the sport or experienced the farm is where its at and the place to be.

    AFF 4

    On AFF Level four now and repeated it once. My instructors are all VERY VERY helpful and giving me great tips a long with everyone else at the farm. But For some reason I cant Seem to keep my legs solid in the proper position during free fall. They either wobble a round a bit or are very unsymetrical. I am very comfortable in the air but I don't know what it is. On the GROUND I got it down but it seems once im in the air I "feel" as if I am doing ti but video shows I am not. Anyone have any tips on me keeping a proper arch and good legs throughout the sky dive. I REALLY want to just bang out the level and have everything click. So Whatya got for me...? -"It's amazing the kinds of things you think about when there's no time to think." TOWER LADDER 44...FDNY, SOUTH BRONX

    Welcome Jon! Where are you jumping at? I'm heading to Calverton in July to check out how the island people do it. Ill probably be heading to the Ranch to jump sounds like a good place from what I hear. Any advice you got otherwise about the drop zones around here lemme know bro. -"It's amazing the kinds of things you think about when there's no time to think." TOWER LADDER 44...FDNY, SOUTH BRONX

    Whats Going on? My Name is Jon, New to the sport and the site. I did my Tandem jump this summer and got hooked. Always looking for more adrenaline than what fires and motorcycles offer and always looking to make mom nervous haha. But going to be starting my AFF this week and looking forward to it. -"It's amazing the kinds of things you think about when there's no time to think." TOWER LADDER 44...FDNY, SOUTH BRONX
