Tips for first time skydivers:

  • For your first time, you go tandem: A tandem jump is when you are attached to a professional instructor. They do all the work such as pulling the rip chord and maneuvering you to the landing zone. This gives more peace of mind and a better experience for first time divers.
  • Wear looser fitting comfortable clothes: Your best clothing choices for your jump will probably be comfortable athletic wear. You will be provided a jumpsuit to wear over your clothes. Also, leave you glasses in the hotel room.
  • Get a good night's sleep: It is advised that you are fairly well rested before you go on your skydiving adventure. You want to be alert and remember all of the safety information that you will briefed on before you go up.
  • Eat a regular meal: You might be tempted to skip breakfast as you feel your stomach might react to the jump. That's just nerves. It's actually recommended that you eat a regular meal, but don't overdo it, before going skydiving.
  • Don't bring electronics: You have to skydive a certain amount of times before you are allowed to wear any electronic equipment on your person. You won't be able to bring any camera or video equipment with you on your jump.
