Skydiver Has Double Malfunction With Line Twists & Line Over

Andrew ReveszBy Andrew Revesz

Two malfunctions — line twists and a line over — followed by a cutaway and a downwind landing puts the “fun” in malfunction, especially for your first cutaway! This skydiver was admittedly a little scared since he’d never experienced a cutaway before, so he tried to fix the malfunction(s) while keeping a close eye on his altitude. He managed to kick out of the line twists, but couldn’t clear the line over and he cutaway at his decision altitude.
