Gear up for the Season

Tip Tuesday with PD Athlete Anna Moxnes 😎

If your skydiving gear has been stored this winter season then it’s time to check it out so that you can be ready for the start of the season. It’s also a great time to remind ourselves of how to properly store our gear when we know we won’t be jumping for awhile.

Some things to keep in mind

  • 😃  If your gear has been sitting for awhile… repack your main!
  • 🔍  Check out the quality of your rubber bands.
  • 🤢  Moisture creates mould! Make sure you store your rig somewhere safe and dry.
  • ☀️  At the end of the summer, think about leaving your canopy unpacked.
  • 🗓️  Make sure your reserve is in date before you head to the DZ!

Thanks PerformanceDesigns 👍 😎

Meet: Performance Designs

We are dreamers, creators, testers, and producers.  Driven by a true love for skydiving and an insatiable curiosity for possibility in parachute design, we’ve delivered revolutionary canopies and unrivaled customer service for over 30 years.  Our sport will never stop evolving. Neither will we.

Combine one man, one skydive, and boundless ambition and you end up with one of the most successful companies in the skydiving industry to date. Founded in 1982, Performance Designs is the realization of Bill Coe’s dream to deliver improved performance of ram-air parachutes to the sport of skydiving. Bill’s passion ignited following his first jump at the age of 18 in 1976 and burned fiercely. He relocated to chase year-round jumping, but was dissatisfied with the canopies he encountered. First modifying, then building new designs from the ground up (all self-funded), he set out to revolutionize the sport and did so with the release of an early version of the PD 9-cell from his shop in DeLand, FL. Bill’s friend and also ardent skydiver, John LeBlanc, matched Bill’s passion and drive for modernized designs and joined PD as VP. With their combined efforts, the company thrived, yielding cutting-edge developments such as Microline, cross-bracing, and zero porosity fabric, all of which endure as standards in today’s parachute industry. Today Performance Designs calls DeLand, FL home, where Bill and John continue to lead and inspire their team to create progressive designs, and still encourage lunch break skydives.
