  5. In my opinion, the only time a "swooper" should be swooping directly at a camera person, is if it was pre planned. For example: setting up for a specific shot. Other than that, doing so is very dangerous for everyone. Whether its' a camera man/woman or just a friend on the ground, suprising someone in this way is dangerous and some would consider "reckless" piloting. Swooping is having a hard enough time right now.... Swoopers are the pilots in control, period. Based on self preservation I would not unexpectedly swoop at someone. If your "swooping" skills are not up to par, as well as your judgement, then go "swoop" in a different area until you "skills" are up to par. Thats all... I really don't think there was much to "debate" on this topic, for those who "really" understood the actual circumstances. No need to argue, just seek solutions, to avoid injuries or worse. K
  6. I'm working on a "generic" proposal, as we all should. I would be more than happy to help anyone in regards to access. I have had success in the past, send me private mess or e mail me @ [email protected] peace k
  7. I feel a responsability to post "something" regarding this topic. Speed riding, ski launching, at resorts is a very "touchy" subject for those who decide wether or not we gain access. Look at B.A.S.E. jumping 20 years ago... Remember it was legal to jump El Cap. at one time. But a few recked it for the rest of us. 25 years later it's still not legal.... So in my humble opionion, and I'm not at all trying to be a speed riding no it all cop, but the way in wich we all (in the US) approach this,will determine if, access is to become a 20 + year battle, or a gentle process much like snowboarding went through. It's up to us to think about the big picture. Going bandito style too often, leads to bad PR for this great new sport. And could set negative precidents. All I'm saying is, think more about the future of the sport, not just the few runs you might "get away" with. Lets not "burn" the sport here in the US , before it has a chance to flourish. i encourage as many as possible to approach ski area Management in a professional and polite way and seek access everywhere. But tread iightly and get permission before flying @ resorts! Lets not ruin it for everyone, before it has a chance. Otherwise , we'll all be flying to Europe, everytime we want to legally speed ride. Or skiinning, snowshoeing, etc to get a couple short flights a day. I've been doing it, and believe me, chair lift access is a lot easier! Thats all I have to say.... Take it for what its worth, it's just one mans opinion. K
  8. I taught skiing and snowboarding for nearly 10 years, ya I could teach you. I'm a little "un current" teaching skiing, but not "un current" doing it. I could help you out , no problem K ps. the camps this spring, I'll have a private instructor or two for people like you. great canopy pilots, but not the best skiers, to bring people up to speed. will be up before Feb 1st you can find all the info ... dates and times etc

  15. Thats great news!! I would love to help in any way I can. I will be in Tahoe part of the season, but I should be available for several of the meets if any help is needed. I was REALY worried that I would not be able to compete anymore ha ha... K

  17. I fly with a friend who owns two Bullets.... I'll talk with him.... I know he does fly it with out skis, but he is a paragliding instructor, 13 years exp. so... I believe it is possible and safe in the right conditions and with the right experience level. I'll get back to you k
