I want to thank Sporto for the coach jumps this past weekend. I  only got the opertunity to do 2 of them but I feel as if I progressed immensley. And I now have a base to start working on. I highley recommend if you have the opportunity to get coach jumps you take it.

While I do agree that Sporto is a great coach, I would work on some more of your belly skills first before trying freeflying.  In freeflying things happen at a much great speed and it is best to get some fundamental belly skills developed before working on freefly skills.

All opinions will be diffrent, but my opinion is for you to get to a point that you are comfortable with being on your belly. I say that because all of our gear is designed to open in a belly to earth attitude at 120 MPH. Being able to get to your belly and be in control is very important. But i also believe that the earlier you start freeflying, the better of a body pilot you will become. Remember your goal should be to become a total body pilot, not a "bellyflyer" not a "freeflyer" but a total body pilot. :D
