Doug, if you have a back problem, a tandem jump is definitely in your best interest. Prior to landing, you lift your feet up and let the instructor and parachute take the contact. Note that I did not say impact. The large surface area ram air canopy and an experienced instructor will make a tip toe landing. Regards, Eric. Eric Rood ericrood at freenet.columbus.oh.us
