Skydive general
No whuffos allowed.


Current news:
Looks like the son of VP of the USPA has broken some rules, as well as his ankles when he took bachelor contestant Rachel on a tandem skydive.

Dumb fuck did a low turn on final and fuckin smashed his shit up.

Surprisingly the USPA will probably let him keep his tandem rating even though he’s a 20yo retard who’s mom owns a DZ and is on the board for USPA

nepotism for sure

Yeah. Its probably just getting to me as I am new to teaching. It sucked to see them come in all hyped the fuck up, and gradually just fucking die over the course of 7 hours and 90+ degree heat until they one by one gave up. Oh, and the wind died down. If they had waited one more hour they could have gotten a jump in. But I don't think they even cared at that point. This was easily the most students we've had at once here and it just leaves a real sour taste in my mouth to have literally all of them bust hard like that.

I'll be in a better mood tomorrow guys I promise.

Yeah it's rough, we used to operate Thursday-Sunday and a few years ago there was 3 weekends in a row we couldn't get any students up due to weather days, and winds. It sucks to tell them and drain their enthusiasm but theres no real way around it.

At first I loved watching the worst fighters on SBs, the rawness and freshness of seeing unskilled fighters clash brought back the unpredictability of early MMA especially early UFC, but with rounds and gloves it wasn't *that* similar. Now I like to watch the better fighters too - at the end of the day, there's such a charm to backyard fights, I've always sought them out. But could they not at least put down a carpet or AstroTurf? Grounds a fucking sandpit lol

Just watch King Of The Streets instead. KOTS is the best thing ever.

Not sure if diving is welcome here but i figured i would ask anyway.

Would like to get properly trained and get my own equipment how much am i more then likely going to be spending?
Whats the best way to find quality instructors?
If the equipment is out of my price range are there rental options and trip packages?
Where the fuck do i get started?
What literature would you suggest?

Some ratings holders swear by a singular method when several can work

Others shit on you for having a knife, not having a knife, what fins and mask you use, whether you bring a snorkel, MUH SPLIT FINS MEME, talking to any girls who dive while simultaneously simping and creeping on them, whether you went PADI or NAUI, how many times you dive and how often....some of these fucking dudes have 150 dives and act like they are navy fucking seals infiltrating a 240m deep submarine on every shore dive.

I agree the people in that 100-200 dive range are usually the biggest faggots in the hobby, people mostly start to become pretty chill again past that bump, there are always exceptions of course.

Yeah exactly.
It's not just speed, it's about catching you when you're not expecting it. The slowest fencer can beat the fastest fencer if he knows the rules better. SPEED is important, but there is a time and a place to be fast, a time and a place to be slow, and a time and a place to be just the exact speed to take advantage and surprise.

Why can't I ollie, is it because I'm too fat, because I don't have the muscles yet, or just a matter of technique?

90kg here, literally got on a board for the first time in 10 years, have somehow gotten better at ollies from some practice today than I did as a teenager. Some observations;

-I got fitter since then though my weight is the same. I can run for longer, lift more weight and actually do pullups now. Not being so much dead weight helps with balance
-new muscles got used though so I feel pretty sore already, particularly my hamstrings and arches
-for the longest time I didn't quite get what an ollie was. Basically you're simply jumping with your body and bouncing the board off the ground so it hops into the air with you. The front foot is purely to flatten it out.
-back foot ball in the center of the tail lip and front foot in the middle of the board for the set up. If the front foot is too far forward it's easy to kick it forward too much I think
-landing and keeping balance is hard. I try to focus on a spot on the ground a little furhter out to the side so that I land more centrally, otherwise I wind up landing more erect and rigid and I fall backwards, ruining the landing. Landing back into bent knees helps too. Crouch in the landing rather than letting yourself stand tall
-also best to lean a little forward too/land front foot heavy. Natural inclination makes you want to kean back more, but that's the most likely way to slip and fall backwards
>>
>>51672
yo thanks for this, it's all great stuff to keep in mind
>>
>>42867
i think a lot of it has to do with muscle. your body just isn't use to exerting that much power in your legs. when i take a long break from skating, i still have the technique down but it takes a while to get them good again as my muscle memory comes back

Can anyone here confirm or debunk that mike indeed executed 10K squats per day?
>i know for sure he did 500 shoulder shrugs with around 35 kilos

Link to a good book 100% about the importance of shoulders:

You should read up on prison workouts. They gain and stay muscular despite many not having any equipment due to repetition. 10000 squats is bullshit. 1000 to 2000 would be possible if you don’t have a full time job.. unless you disappear every full hour to do your 100 squats and 50 push-ups.

I was thinking about how when I was a kid random hacky sack circles would form with total strangers in all kinds of random places and it made me nostalgic for it and I think it will be great when people start coming together again.
