What to consider when jumping a raft?

In this video, Mark Perna from Perndog Channel gives tips for jumpng with rafts, dolphins, unicorns etc, from real life experience…

  • Be sure you have the skill level for the jump, pay attention to safety
  • Communicate with the DZ and other jumpers on the load
  • Make good handles to hold onto the inflatable, especially a raft
  • Only part fill the inflatable, it will expand in the ride to altitude
  • Break off high, with a staged break-off plan
  • Protect your emergency & deployment handles when leaving the raft/inflatable
  • Be prepared to lose the inflatable
  • Have a blast!
