    Why don't skydiver's like Vegas Style Tunnels?

    think of it this way.. sure you can get just as drunk and enjoy yourself with pale watery beer instead of well crafted microbrews, but why would you if you had the choice? with modern high speed tunnels popping up everywhere in the world why bother with the last generations substitutes?

    Sean McCormic still teaches Skysurfing to interested jumpers, I believe he is at a FL dropzone.. I think there are 1 or 2 at Perris as well.

    SkyVenture NH is the next level

    why the "step backward" with flat walls? everyone i've talked to LOVES the rounded walls of Eloy...more expense perhaps but the lack of 'wasted space' in the corners makes up for it...

    enjoying yourself IS accomplishing a goal.. everyone does not always share the same goal...

    A "humbling" experience

    same as any other form of skydiving.. relax, breathe and dont try so hard... its amazing how fast you'll 'click' once you stop fightng the wind, trying to hold a stiff position and relax into the basic position.. also.. small movements and inputs are VERY helpful...

    Skyventure Az on news

    some good clips... Ray is laughing his ass off as always rotflmao.. and Neil is trying to pick up the anchor woman on live TV...
  12. hard to say without seeing video, but you might be doing the classic 'potato chip' and if so it is generally caused by being to rigid with your body position.. you have to learn to breath and relax into your arch.. stable does not equal stiff

    Eloy or Marana

    Noooooo contest.. Eloy.
  15. totally agree here I should have jumped my gear the first jump back to... instead i borrowed a canopy with break settings WAAAAAY to short for me and PLF'ed in as i was very afraid of stalling it with a normal flare... next jump i put my canopy back on... admittedly i had issues with flaring to high, not completely even, and worse, reaching for the ground with my feet.... but the problems were mental, not physical...i'd tested my impact level jumping rope and a few practice PLF's before hand, but it took 5 jumps before i got my head on straight and was flaring correctly, i had to 'hold' my flare to prevent the panic spook response my brain was giving me, but after i got the first one right, it all came back and i even started back with front riser 90s to final and getting a decent surf out of it... in the end, i totally agree.. do what you know..and focus on the what you 'know' vs succumbing to the panic that may be left over from the jump that injured you....
