  1. The main is half your life, your real life is the reserve. Always remember you have a second chance. I took the packing course after my 7th jump. HISPA 21 www.panamafreefall.com
  2. gogles, log book, if you live in cold weather then gloves. What a while before buying an altimeter or anything else skydiving related. Oh yeah almost forgot, a T-shirt. Welcome to the sport! HISPA 21 www.panamafreefall.com
  3. That too! its kinda funny te see a skydiver on top of the wheel acting like a circus elephant. A good revenge is to fart on the plane before leaving. That will teach the pilots a lesson about customer service . HISPA 21 www.panamafreefall.com
  4. I wonder what would you do in my dz where there are no lights to tell you when to jump. When the plane is align to jump run stick your head out the window, look down, give instruction to the pilot in case there is a drift or are above clouds, yell CUT and jump, much better than trusting a light but thats only my opinion.

  5. The key in skydiving is "Dirt dive" and "practice practice practice". Get a big pillow, do your belly, arch, turn right, coast, stop, relax, repeat; after doing it 20 times, go for left, then again and again and again. I dunno if it will work but a thing I do to visualise is that the knee I put down is where my lower part will move. Right knee equals lower part moving to the right, making you turn to the left.

  6. First things first: get your own gear (if you don't have one) and then get a canopy control course. In Deland you can get the course with Scott Miller, he is a very good instructor that will teach you alot about canopy control and if am not mistaken he also gives the swoop course. Another good thing is to do what skymonkeyONE said, search the forums. HISPA 21 www.panamafreefall.com
  7. I use a bonehead boomerang, I like it more than a Z1. Z1 are shaped way to small, I tried a Z1 XL and didn't fit, then tried a Boomerang L and it fit great. HISPA 21 www.panamafreefall.com
  8. go for the square, easier to pack. Some riggers don't have the tools to pack a round. HISPA 21 www.panamafreefall.com
  9. Goggles, you gotta jump with style dont ya then came the altimeter, gear, jumpsuit, helmet. HISPA 21 www.panamafreefall.com
  10. www.skykat.com www.square1.com www.cousindave.com www.sunshine-factory.com www.aerostore.com All those are good stores, all gave me great customer service and good products. The only one that I dunno how they work is the cousindave store, but has some good prices. HISPA 21 www.panamafreefall.com
  11. I agree, I am one that have tried doing the last fold first and bag it and can't do it, I have no idea how the other people do it. HISPA 21 www.panamafreefall.com
  12. practice practice practice, F111 fabric should not give you to much of a problem, after some packs you will get the speed and technique you want. HISPA 21 www.panamafreefall.com
  13. What is a LAP qualification for rigger? I know what is back, chest and seat but I have no idea what is lap. Can you post some pictures of those gears? thanks. HISPA 21 www.panamafreefall.com
  14. Order stainless for everything. I just grounded one of my containers because one itsi bitsi small part of a the ring that is part of the container (the large ring, does it has a name?) got rusted and contaminated the webbing. My country has always from 95% to 100% of humidity. HISPA 21 www.panamafreefall.com
  15. VERY GOOD BOOK! thanks, my HP landing improved a 110% after reading that book yesterday. Do you know of another book that talks about HP landings (PM me please)? Blahr sorry for the small hijack.
