Guest Posted March 27, 2008 Share Posted March 27, 2008 (edited) All, Nice and simple... the only advice I have been given on the subject is from a guy who has had to do it and is alive and flying. MAKE YOUR APPROACH (DOWN WIND) Ensure that all of your straps are undone Leave your brakes up. (DO NOT FLARE!!!) (ADDED) If you are flying a PPG You can jump out at 5 ft or so from the water. If flying PG this is NOT reccomended as the glider will more than likely land on top of you as it looses the weight required to fly. (think what happens to a kite when you let go of the string, a motor applies enough pressure to keep the wing flying away from you) Swim a good distance away from your kit (ACROSS) any noticable current. Fingers Xed from now on. My personal thoughts are do not fly over water unless you have glide clear height and or a bottom landing, and you will find that places like the IOW will not like you flying without a knife attached to your kit.
