  1. I started paragliding about a year ago and I felt very comfortable once airborne. Since learning how to kite, it really helps me when landing after a skydive or base jump to shut down my canopy behind me so it's not full of air. Makes for a quicker get away.
  2. Do you have any areas around you with paragliding? It's pretty chill and at 34, I'm usually the youngest guy in the group.
  3. I started skydiving to become a homosexual, so I'm mostly doing freeflying.
  4. The only reason I read this forum is to see what Virgin-Burner writes. Please don't take that away from me. Please.
  5. I did. I only come here for the brand wars.
  6. I've been told that articulated harnesses will conform to your body better during different body positions, like freeflying which wasn't as popular 25 years ago.
  7. You've been watching too many movies. One in particular.
  8. I think my grandmother still does bank transfers.
  9. It used to be on the Price List on the website, but no longer is. I'll just keep flying my PTS.
  10. If my rig was ever exposed to "vaping fluid", I would burn it out of fear of becoming a homosexual.
  11. What don't you understand about current AADs?
  12. I just don't understand why you are complaining about a potential problem that doesn't exist. If they offer it for sale and don't provide any information on it, then sure, I'd understand your frustration.
  13. Are you one of those guys who jumps barefoot? Those guys look cool. Just land really well and you'll have no problems! Genius!
  14. Haha! Good catch! Horrible advice.
  15. So now the jumper is in the same situation they'd be in if they had a regular AAD. So now the jumper is in the same situation they'd be in if they had a regular AAD. That's what the audible is for, so you're not wondering. What would you suggest?

    I was brought up to use the term "Nylon-American". The word "r*gger" is offensive to some.
  17. I have a pair of Crispi Airborne GTX Boots that I used to wear before I was a skygod. They are pretty expensive and heavy, but have excellent ankle support and don't have hooks that could be a snag hazard.
  18. I'm at work and don't have access to the video, but I watched it before work and I was certain that I saw him fly over the wall. Was I mistaken?
  19. I think they meant that the mylar forms better to the suit when it inflates because it's not sewn together in the back. The slat system is open on the front and back to help airflow over the canopy in deep brakes which makes it less likely to stall. The slat system doesn't "stick" to the canopy.
  20. My DZ offers free jump tickets when they rape my girlfriend, so I have no complaints.
  21. If I could do it over again, I would have gotten more coach jumps in the beginning instead of doing solos. You won't get much feed back from a solo. It also took a while for me to realize the dropzone I was at didn't have much of a training program after AFF, so I had to go to another dropzone to get coach jumps.
