So the winter will be a great time for you to read read read!!   :)  Allison posted some great links about wing loading, check those out.  I would wait until the spring to figure out what size canopy to get, get some more jumps under your belt, keep on working on your accuracy and landings with the student gear.  See how things go under a 190 and go from there.  Next time you go climbing, lets chat about it  :)


Mark has assured me we will have a 190ish student rig next year, which should help with decisions such as this one.
