Weight Limit

I believe the weight limit is around 500lb total for both jumpers and all the necessary equipment. They told me I was just at the limit at 6'3" and 215lbs. I think the practical limit is how much weight the instructor can handle because he has to hold the student up in crouched/kneeling position just prior to jumping.

It doesn't matter how fast you are going, it's the sudden stop that gets ya!
