Accidental cool skydiving video and the education to go with it

This is one of my favorite skydiving videos from back in the day…

A super cool accidental visual, yes, but also an awesome educational piece on a bunch of different fronts:

  • To fly through the inevitable benign bumps on exit no matter what your discipline
  • To approach the formation in your quadrant
  • To get on level
  • To fly on level in your slot being patient for the formation build in front of you
  • Only taking your grips when it is built (“let the center build” “build the center first” 😉 )
  • A clean 180 before breaking off to clear the space behind you
  • Tracking away cleanly.. safe deployment of your parachute


  • Clearing of your airspace once you’re open, ensuring you are flying a clear safe direction once open while you stow your slider and do your controllability check

Check. Cool, I hope this helps..

Safety always always always first.

Also, I hope it makes you feel better about however you make it happen flying yourself.. I look so weird in this. Hahahaa awesome. Funny eyelashes and the coolest reflection of the formation building in my visor.

Relating this to life coaching and personal growth, it is also an awesome example of trained execution… and how possible that is in ANY ENVIRONMENT OR SKILL SET.

We have the capacity to learn and do pretty much anything.

Not overly cheese, “we can do anything!!!,” but rather the objective understanding that we are capable of learning and doing so much more than we ever currently think.

Boom. Nuff said.

Have an epic day everyone!

Thank you as ALWAYS for being here.
