Pro Skydiver and Swooper

Post by travy » Fri Nov 24, 2017 8:20 pm

Hello everyone,

I am a self certified professional skydiver and professional swooper.

I am looking for advise on how to get into speeriding. I can not ski. I have watched many youtube videos of speedriding, the sport looks quite easy and straightforward, I have already bought a 9.5 Mirage, therefore I guess really I don't need any advice, I got this.

See you in the alps.

Hy Travy, you need to learn skiing, a parachutist frien of mine he learn skiing for do speedriding very quick.
Then take some lessons.
Otherwise you can start learning speedfly, it’s the same but without ski, just running down of a slope.
But with ski it’s much more beautiful , you can do more things, like touch and fly again, and it’s a little safer for the touch down, more speed no problem, you can use smaller canopies.
Good luck
