"Less than one year ago, I started skydiving. As soon as I obtained my A-license, I went to the tunnel and saw Mike flipping upside down, flying upside down, and carving all over the place. At that point, I thought to myself "I want to do that stuff". That night, I asked Mike if he could handle coaching me. He had no idea what that actually entailed. Nonetheless, Mike has taught me canopy control skills, RW skills, Backflying, Sitflying, and we continue to work on other aspects of freeflying. That being said, the overriding principle inherent in everything Mike teaches is "safety first". Thank you Mike, and I am looking forward to many more coach jumps in the future. Seth"
