How can you skydive? That’s crazy? No it isn’t…. This is crazy!

So over the years, people have told me that I’m crazy for skydiving, they said that I was crazy for jumping off of planes, they said I was crazy for wanting to do it day in, day out.

Then, when I decided that I wanted to learn CRW (Canopy relative work – AKA: Parachute formations) I was told by even more people that I was crazy… Some of these people are skydivers themselves!
Genevi√®ve has always supported the fact that I want to fly CRW but she herself refuses to do it claiming that it’s crazy to “play in each others’ lines”.

When I was in Florida at Skydive Sebastian, I mentioned that I got to fly with a guy named Nick. Well Nick and I have kept contact and yesterday, he went a step above simple CRW….
Yesterday, he and a friend decided to attempt a jump using his Sabre2 150 loaded at 1.34 and a Velocity 90 loaded at 2.5.
He calls this Crazy CRW, I agree with him… On that note though, I want to try this!
