Skydiving is one of the most exhilarating things you can do in this world. It’s exhilarating because you actually get to fly through the air. And not just a little—you get to dive right off the edge of a 4000-foot drop and soar through the air for miles! The feeling unlike any other.
But there’s more to it than beauty, freedom, and adrenaline. Skydiving is a way to test your limits and push yourself beyond what you thought was possible. It’s also a great way to get photos of yourself skydiving!
“Never say never because limits, like fears, are often just an illusion.” – Michael Jordan
The reasons people skydive are as varied as the people. Skydiving can be a life-changing experience. It’s not for everyone, and we understand that. But if you’re the kind of person who wants to push yourself outside your comfort zone and do something truly epic, skydiving is a great choice.
People come to skydive for all kinds of reasons: some want to mark a milestone birthday or a major accomplishment; some are just looking to try something new and have a fun time with friends. No matter what your reason is, we’re here to support you in making your bucket list dreams come true!
Conquering Your Fear
Many people have a fear of heights, which is completely understandable. The thought of being up high, above the ground, and away from your comfort zone, can be scary. But what if we told you that those feelings of fear are exactly why you should go skydiving?
The unique thing about skydiving is that it allows you to face your fear—not in a way where you just have to grit your teeth and bear it, but in a way where you’re actively doing something about that fear. When you’re up there, with the ground so far below and just a parachute between you and it, there’s no doubt that it’s scary. But once you’ve jumped out of the plane, the exhilaration of freefalling overrides those feelings of fear. And when the parachute opens, and you’re floating safely back down to earth, those feelings of fear can be put away for good.
Sure, you’re gonna be nervous—who wouldn’t be? But imagine the rush! Imagine the feeling of being pulled by a parachute through the sky, taking in that view of your entire city or state, or country at once. Imagine the feeling of accomplishment and pride when you land safely on the ground and realize that you can do anything you put your mind to.
Time to Fly
The best way to learn skydiving? From the pros. Learning from a certified instructor or skydiving program. You’ll be flying in no time!
When you try skydiving, you’re not just jumping out of an airplane; you’re leaving behind the world of land-dwellers forever. You are now one of those who has seen what it is like to float under a parachute canopy and to look down from the sky at the world below.
You’ll feel your stomach in your chest as you climb higher and higher into the air, but once you jump out of that plane, all of that fear will melt away, and all you’ll feel is freedom. The wind will be rushing past you; your whole body will feel alive. When you finally pull the cord, that feeling will become even more amazing as your parachute opens and time seems to slow down as you drift back down to earth.
Skydiving isn’t just a thrill; it’s a way to reconnect with yourself and the planet we live on. The world will feel new again when you see it from the sky and get a bird’s-eye view of how beautiful it is and how much there is to explore. You’ll gain a new perspective on life, your place in it, and what truly matters.
