Sandy Reid made his first jump in May 1970. In 1971 he attended the famous Ted Strong School of Rigging and it was there that he first met Ted and recognized a kindred soul. Ted was a selfmade individual who was not afraid to try new ideas and concepts and he made most of the first jumps on his designs. This impressed Sandy and as he advanced up the rigging ladder into manufacturing, and he too followed Ted's example. That simple concept has guided him to this day. Along the way he has been incredibly lucky in having an innate ability to see what others could not. The Curv is the most advanced harness and container design in the world and our customers recognize this. He has been a leader, not a follower and he's not done yet.
