    Softest opening canopy

    If we're going to have a discussion on the softest opening canopy we should probably start with the Crossfire2 and then just end the discussion.

    San Diego 9/12-9/18

    Do San Diego and Oceanside get consistent winds?

    San Diego 9/12-9/18

    I’m thinking I’ll try to hit San Diego and Oceanside at least once and hit up Perris and Elsinore for longer days. We’ll see how nice work is to me.

    San Diego 9/12-9/18

    I’ll be working in the San Diego area in mid September but I’ll be doing night shifts so I should be free every day from about 10am to 10pm (minus commute to Kearney Mesa). I was wondering if anyone had current dropzone recommendations or would be interested in jumping together. I’ll have a car and my rig, feel free to reply or send me a message.

    Sabre 2 openings

    I’ve been jumping Safires and Crossfires for a long time, but spent my last four jumps on rented Sabre2 canopies. I hate the openings (harder and more off heading than what I’m used to) but once open they fly great and have an amazing flare.

    Denver block coached time

    I just tell them I want the $850/hour coached special.

    Seeking a serious mentor

    If you can afford it, joining a tunnel league down in Park Meadows will hasten your progression and hook you up with like minded people to jump.

    Denver block coached time

    They sell block time at $850/hour coached, but you can buy it in increments as small as 10 minutes. So I book three 10 or 15 minute sessions per week and pay as I go. You don’t have to do it all at once.

    Denver block coached time

    I'm just starting hour 3 with Rich. I've been taking a break from jumping nursing a reconstructed ACL, PCL and meniscus and cant wait to hit the skies after all the tunnel time. I'm doing the $850/hour coached special that they have here (and probably all of the ifly tunnels).

    Trading a rig

    I have a Curv with a Nano 160, Safire3 149, and Vigil 2. I was on a Crossfire2 129 but am just starting to jump again after getting 2 new ligaments in my knee and am wondering if I would be happier with something larger. Eventually I may want to work my way down to something smaller and faster again but have been jumping a 210 and 190 rental since I came back last week and am wondering if a 170 would be a good canopy for the season, but 150 is the biggest that my Curv will hold.

    Trading a rig

    Does anyone here have experience on trading rigs? I want to upsize but already have the largest canopy I can fit in my current container. I'm wondering if I should sell or if it's worth trying to trade with someone downsizing.

    Velocity i43 with a pulse 190 ?

    I used to pack a Pulse 190 into an I34, I can't imaging bagging it one size down.

    Denver block coached time

    Does anyone have a recommendation who to track down for a block of coached tunnel time? Should I just call the tunnel directly or is it like Ogden where you can get a much better deal dealing with coaches?

    Microraven 150 @ 1.25 WL

    Having landed two Micro Raven 150s at loadings between 1.3 and 1.4 (one in Longmont, CO at 90+ degrees and 5000’) I can verify that stayhigh is correct. They are still the only reserve that I have landed, and both could have been stood up, but neither could be taken past my stomach without starting to accordion and stall. I have since lost weight and now have a larger Nano in my container. I don’t know how that lands and hope never to find out.
