  1. There's actually a lot of controversy about this. Everybody wants to claim it, so everybody will have different stories.

    what's your average hd fall rate?

    Usually somewhere between 140 mph and 200 mph. Seriously, don't really concentrate on "speeds" per se. If you're there, you're flying the right speed.

    How do you do a layout?

    Fly your positions, don't ever throw them.

    Side flying?

    I posted about this vry subject quite some time ago....can't remember what it was called, run a search. You'll surely find something on side tracking if you run a search as well.

    Average fall rate calculation

    Don't shoot for average numbers. Just make sure you can stick with whatever dive you're on. They're going to change every time.

    Freefly Load Organizing

    I always want an organizer to give me a challenge. None of this "Okay, we're gonna exit in a flower, turn it into a round, open accordian, round, open accordian, round, open accordian, round, open accordian, round, open accordian.........." stuff. I like it when they change things up and throw something unusual in the mix, whether it's a weird exit or a strange point. As long as it's original and challenging, I'm happy.

    Head down advise needed

    My opinion......at 111 jumps, stick with your upright flying. Just cuz you can hold the position doesn't mean you've mastered it. People will tell you a lot of different things, but here's my personal progression recommendation. In a sit, I think you should be able to have CONTROLLED movement in all directions (including sideslides), be able to do transitions on all axis (flips and such) while staying on level, and be able to take docks and HOLD them with either hand and either foot. Then you can consider trying some inverted stuff. Trust me, learn all this stuff and wait for head down. You'll be glad you did later. The fun is in the journey, not in the destination. Good luck, and have fun!! Oh, and no matter what, work on your backfly while you're at it...it'll come in handy.

    2005 Freefly Goals

    [ED] Season is started!! YAY!!! [/ED] For me.... I also want to spend more time flying upright....I've gotten rusty, and it seems all of Tecumseh is going to be doing much more upright flying this year, with good reason. Big way skills.....enough said. Transitions....I need to clean them up a little. And I really need to do more tshirt and shorts jumps.

    Freefly popularity

    Yeah, but other than "When is it safe to start freeflying", "What kind of container do you recommend for freeflying", or "Check out this cool pic/video", what are we gonna talk about? Edited to add.....here's a short video to tide you over till someone posts something cool. Frankly, I'm fresh out of ideas. http://www.skydivewrongway.net/HTMLobj-805/ThreeWayLowQuality.wmv Filmed by Corey at Tecumseh.

    Toes in the sand?

    Turtles don't do sand dumbass, you'd get stuck. Amphibious creatures should stick to water.

    Good starter camera

    Any chance you could fill out your profile so we can know how many jumps you have, etc? That might provide more responses.

    Training Curriculum?

    You have some good ideas there, but I would suggest against backtracking off the line of flight. The reason I say this is because you could be turning while tracking on your back without even knowing it (having no reference point in the air such as another person), which could put you in any given place in the sky, including somebody elses airspace. If you wanna track off the line of flight, you can do it on your belly, but I personally think 15 seconds would be an awfully long time to track on a normal spot. I could be wrong though on that one. Anybody wish to comment on that? As for backflying/sitflying.....I think it's a good idea to want to learn backflying...not a lot of newbies think about that. Good on you. I'd recommend getting a coach or at the very least an experienced freeflyer to go out with you just as a reference. In a sit you'll be flying all over the place for sure at first, and most people (I've seen) first learning backflying have a habit of sticking their legs out too far and not using their arms enough, tracking all over the sky.....hence the need to a reference point. Bottom line....you have some good ideas there, and I respect your desire to keep it safe and smart. That's awesome. Just get some coaching to make it even more safe and smart, and to speed your progression even more. Good luck, and have fun!

    What do people want from a bad ass Freefly fest?

    To me....it's all about the coaching/organizing during the day, and how many different kinds of free beer you have after dark. The rest can be left to the vibe the people in attendance bring. Edited to add: A couple live bands are awesome too.
