This month’s reader question is a two part-er! We all have things we have to work at in skydiving and BASE jumping and paragliding and life and what-have-you. But then there are some things that just came naturally and we didn’t even have to think twice about doing them.
For me, landing a canopy has never really been an issue; I can generally fly a pattern, flare at the right height and stand up (when appropriate). Body flight though, hoo boy. There is a disconnect between my brain and my body parts that I have to work really hard on. “Okay, so I want to side-slide to the right, that means I have to dip my left … no, right … no wait, left? Knee? Elbow? Hair? Shit!”
What is 1) your natural talent and 2) your “I will have to work on this until my dying day” non-talent?
