    Kitesurfer seeking skydivers advice

    I have no basis for this, but I am wondering about the 50lbs figure. Does this number come from somewhere? I just imagine with a kite surfer as routine more force is involved to drag an adult across waters surface. But as I said I have no basis for this assumption and might be missing the purpose of this device.
  2. Now now, posting to the interwebs never directly hurt or killed the one that made the post.

    Why do you skydive?

    Do you really think I want to land with the plane? Have you met any pilots?!

    Manifest Qualifications

    A local DZO declares a vagina is a primary qualification. The declaration continues, men can do the job mostly, but don't have the same follow through on it, and it's the follow through that's important.

    Intentional Breakaways

    That's a good consequence for sure. One I'd agree with absolutely given someone I care about, or anyone at all, might end up strapped to their front one day. Thanks,

    Intentional Breakaways

    Not a specific reply to you Jerry(previous poster) but off that line of thought. Is there a (current)legal point at which premeditated intention to use your reserve makes it no longer a 'reserve'. If you leave the aircraft with the 100% intention of deploying this reserve chute can it be said to be held in reserve? Could it be called just a second planned main deployment? (regardless of planform, branding, naming, being packed by a certified rigger ect)

    So I know this guy...

    A very nice read, seems like a solid introduction to the sport and culture of skydiving by my limited experience so far. Thanks for putting it up for preview, much appreciate. I'll gladly refund that negative beer if we do cross paths eventually.

    Don't underestimate your speed

    Talk to the instructors at your home DZ who came up jumping rounds, they'll be able to tell you, show you, and watch you not do it correctly Also ask them about spotting.

    UFOs over Lake Wales

    This was amazing to watch on the ground. Has anyone heard of any UFOs actually reported yet?

    SAFETY FIRST with Brian Germain on SkydiveRadio.com

    I found this interesting, an argument that safety should be 3rd. http://www.mikeroweworks.com/2009/08/safety-third-huh/

    Canopy collision? anyone seen this one?

    Protect your handles when getting wrapped, and/or do not chop a parachute and go back into freefall while wearing another jumpers chute.
