    1" x 1/8" disc Neodymium magnets, a source

    The 1" rare earth (or any magnet) are too wide. 3/4" or 1/2" work and are easier to sew in place. As far as being too strong ..... put two pieces of fabric between two rare earth magnets .... perfect. Life is short ... jump often.

    Safety watch outs jumping in costume

    I'll never forget when Santa Clause crabbed into my canopy at 100 ft in winds so strong there was no penetration. I saw him coming but could not move forward. He couldn't see me because his beard came across his face. Thanks for that Ken ..... Life is short ... jump often.

    I'm not a board expert but, that thing looked pretty short. Life is short ... jump often.
  22. Wow ... I thought you were JUST a great freeflier .... Life is short ... jump often.
  23. A roll over .... McConkey .... is an advanced exit. It was not this guy's first day I imagine. I have seen so many jumpers walk onto the Perrine without their legs strap tightened, or even off. They finish gearing up at the exit point. That drives me crazy. I am ready before I walk onto the bridge. Maybe because I am not an expert. Life is short ... jump often.
