    Flying with Rig in New Zealand

    I do it pretty much every week of the year through either Auckland, Christchurch, or Wellington. Always as carry-on in a backpack, and never had a problem in the past 10 years

    Collisions - two in a week

    Absolutely, but I'm not sure 30deg is enough. I'm tending to go with Wicked's 90deg now Ian Purvis http://www.loadupsoftware.com LoadUp DZ Management App admin@loadupsoftware.com

    Collisions - two in a week

    A quick safety vid we made last month for end of day viewing to highlight some of the day's dodgy ws flights. The first clip is as close as I ever want to come to being hit. Guy trying to exit on his back hasn't seen me yet. http://vimeo.com/170911192 Ian Purvis http://www.loadupsoftware.com LoadUp DZ Management App admin@loadupsoftware.com

  7. Long delay in posting due to having so much fun on this suit After reading this post months ago I contacted Walt who graciously agreed to send a demo Swurve all the way to little old New Zealand. After putting 10 flights on it I ordered one on 22nd April. The next day Walt was back in touch checking some minor details. He communicated every step of the process. Suit was cut on April 28th, and shipped on May 6th. Redline's service was great and the final fit and quality are outstanding. Can't thank them enough. If you get the chance definitely take the Swurve for a spin, it's an awesome suit. Ian Purvis http://www.loadupsoftware.com LoadUp DZ Management App admin@loadupsoftware.com

    Flysight beta update for voice glide ratio

    Awesome, much appreciated Ian Purvis http://www.loadupsoftware.com LoadUp DZ Management App admin@loadupsoftware.com

    Flysight beta update for voice glide ratio

    Almost fixed Michael The time zone offset craps out if you go more than +9 hours from UTC. Currently in New Zealand we're +13 hours. +8 and +9 work fine but +10,11,12,13 don't. Not a big deal. At least the folders have the correct date now as long as I don't jump before 4.00am. Cheers for the support Ian Purvis http://www.loadupsoftware.com LoadUp DZ Management App admin@loadupsoftware.com

    GOPRO 4

    Only 1 day of jumping it so far but I like it. Jumped 5 loads using 1080@120fps so I could play with some slomo and I'm impressed. https://vimeo.com/channels/blsd/111969513 Ian Purvis http://www.loadupsoftware.com LoadUp DZ Management App admin@loadupsoftware.com

    Closing pins piercing bridles - Total Malfunction

    Argus

    Yep this was the biggest crock of shit I've seen in my lowly 5 years in this sport. Due to the APF (ex Cypress dealer) I had no choice other than to buy a new AAD, even though I couldn't find any proof that there was anything wrong with my 4yo Argus. Happily just this month I shipped Argus to a guy in Florida who is putting it to good use. Ian Purvis http://www.loadupsoftware.com LoadUp DZ Management App admin@loadupsoftware.com

    Skydiving Kiwis

    Only a couple of years old but already has developed the ability to train, and more importantly, keep, students in the sport. They go out of their way to maximise the number of sport slots available, and are always happy to organise jumps to suit the level of those who want to play, even when it means having a simpler plan so that all are included. Their focus on fun jumping for everyone certainly plays a big part in the retention of their students.
