Things You Should Know about Skydiving

No matter how many times you’ve gone skydiving, or especially if you’ve never gone before, there are a few things you should know about the activity. Having as much information as possible about skydiving can really enhance your enjoyment of the entire experience, so we’re here to answer a few of the questions you may have. Of course, if you have any questions we haven’t answered on our blog, don’t hesitate to give us a call!

Many people have a misconception about skydiving that it is a physically intense activity that only people who are in great shape can enjoy. While it may help to be in decent shape before skydiving, it is by no means a strenuous exercise. The act of skydiving can and should be exhilarating, but you don’t have to put in a lot of hard work to make it fun. In fact, when you take advantage of tandem skydiving, you can relax knowing your experienced partner will be doing the majority of the work for you.

Another thing people often wonder about is the type of outfit people where when they go skydiving. Why do they look so strange? Well, they may not be something you wear on the street, but they are actually perfectly normal and made for this exact type of activity.

Skydiving suits are meant to help you get the most lift, but we actually think they look pretty cool.

Many people worry about how to land, but it’s actually quite simple. Again, your partner will do the majority of the work for you. They will steer, and all you have to do is lift up your feet and gently touch the ground.
