    ASSHOLES

    Who are you talking about? I've never had any problems with anyone here or in person. The only other beginners here that I've seen getting shit seem to thrive on it.
  2. I think 15 minutes in the tunnel is plenty to learn how to fall stable, hold your heading, and probably do some simple turns. Knowing how to do that will keep you from worrying about freefall so that you can spend more time worrying about other things, like exits and landing your canopy. Don't think that your first time in freefall will be as easy as the tunnel though. You'll still have to deal with the probable sensory overload and resulting brain lock. But it is nice not having to worry about going into a flat spin when you get released the first time. You might even save some money if it keeps you from having to repeat levels. I did tunnel time first and I'm real glad I did. Have fun!!!
