||By now you probably know that being closely above another skydiver in freefall can be a bad thing. That low-pressure area above a freefalling person (or object) is called a burble, and if you get in it, the reduced air resistance lets you fall faster and onto the person below you, with sometimes funny but potentially dangerous results.
However, a burble can actually be a fun place to play (briefly!) if you know how. And when you know how, you also know how to get out of it in a bad situation, which is a very good thing. So let's play with burbles! This weekend's Transitions focus is on burble hops--safely flying over and under other jumpers to trade places in the sky.
Prerequisite for this challenge is the ability to sideslide and stop; if you need to work on this first, we're thrilled to teach you the way! :)
