    Holy crap

    Glad your ok. Any landing that you walk away from is a good one, right? Blue Skies Steve Ok, so it's pink, but I'm secure in my manhood, and I still look cool coming in under it!

  3. There have been a lot of threads on this topic. Try doing a search for "learning to swoop", how to Swoop" etc. There is a lot of information out there and your question has been specifically addressed. Although I am not a swooper I have found doing a couple of CRW jumps to be really helpful in learning canopy control, which is vital when learning how to swoop. Swooping is a lot more than just making your canopy go fast. I just looked at your profile. I am not trying to be jerk or anything, but if your jump #'s are correct I wouldn't even worry about swooping yet. Learn to make accurate straight in landings first. Good swoopers put there canopy where they want it. If you can't land where you want straight in at normal speeds you definitely will not be able to do it at higher speeds. Also look at your reasons for wanting to swoop. If you just want to impress people you may want to rethink it. I like the cruising across the ground part. I can come straight in under my 160, no front risers and if I flare right I can get 20-25 sometimes 30 feet out of a swoop. That doesn't sound or look impressive, but when I look down it feels like I am going a lot further, and I want to swoop for the feeling anyway.

  6. If you payed by credit card just call your credit card company, and explain what happened. Tell them you wish to dispute the charges because you did not get what you paid for. Most credit card companies will reverse the charges and put the burden of proof on the seller to show why the charges should be valid. It's a lot easier to do if you use AMEX.

  7. Yuck I liked my answer better. I think I'll just focus on that. AHH... happy thoughts. Blue Skies Steve Ok, so it's pink, but I'm secure in my manhood, and I still look cool coming in under it!

  9. Boortz rocks! I listen to him whenever I have the chance. Sometimes I agree with him and at other times I don't, but he is always entertaining. Blue Skies Steve Ok, so it's pink, but I'm secure in my manhood, and I still look cool coming in under it!

  12. My DZ had a packing class for $10.00. It lasted a few hours and went in depth about why we pack like we do, an explanation of linesets. We also disconnected the main and did maintenenace on the rig and then did a few pack jobs. I would think every DZ would offer something like this.

  13. Damn!!!! You rock! Blue Skies Steve Ok, so it's pink, but I'm secure in my manhood, and I still look cool coming in under it!
  14. Congratulations! Does that mean your smart? Blue Skies Steve Ok, so it's pink, but I'm secure in my manhood, and I still look cool coming in under it!
  15. It's also very cool to be able to go to a new dropzone and already know people there, no matter where it is. Blue Skies Steve Ok, so it's pink, but I'm secure in my manhood, and I still look cool coming in under it!
