Certain Special Forces have been using that method for more than a decade. It could be unsafe near the mountain side or close to the ground, as we know wind directions are different there..plus microbursts etc. They have no recovery envelope! I'm just jealous, too old and too many responsibilities to do it! That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it :-) But it looks like the most exhilarating non-powered flying sport ever!

I think my reasons for not wanting to try it are the same as yours OS plus I'm too sane to risk my neck thank you.
