Maybe you have always been the kind of person who loves the feeling of adrenaline that comes from doing something that actually could be life-threatening. Perhaps you have mastered many extreme sports, but you still have one major thing on your bucket list that you want to accomplish at least once in your lifetime. That one thing might be your turn at skydiving.
Maybe you were lucky enough to have somebody give you skydiving as a major gift. Or, maybe you are paying for it yourself. If you are paying for the skydiving experience yourself, just know that it's not cheap. You might also think that every penny that was spent was worth the thrilling experience. Read on to learn more about your first skydiving experience.
First of all, know that you won't be skydiving by yourself, no matter how brave you are. The facility where you will be doing your skydiving has experienced skydivers who are certified to be your partner. Strange as it might feel, you'll be strapped to a total stranger. He or she is the stranger who will literally throw you out of the airplane. At first, you might have the feeling that this is your last day on earth.
At that time, this stranger will pull the parachute mechanism that will open the parachute. You'll probably go from thinking you're about to die, to thinking this is the most magical feeling you've ever had.
Don't be concerned at all about your landing. Your partner will take charge as he steers you to a landing spot. You'll pull your legs up, slide for a short while, and then as if by magic, somebody will be there to unhook you.
You don't have to be in fabulous shape to skydive. After all, you won't be doing much of the work yourself. That will be left to your parachuting partner and to the laws of gravity, which do almost all of the work for you and your partner.
When you are looking for places to skydive, look for a place that has breathtaking scenery. You'll certainly have a bird's eye view of what's under you.
Be aware of a couple of things that might be unexpected. The first thing is that you might be cold up in the sky. The second thing to be aware of is that the harness might not be that comfortable, especially if you're a guy. But, the experience will be so great that you'll forget about any discomfort while you're soaring in the sky.Share
