my skydiving expirience

Published on July 3, 2014



I am completely terrified of heights and planes and to celebrate my boyfriend’s twenty-first birthday we decided to take him Skydiving. Originally we planned for just him and his brother to go. However, the fear of missing out on an incredible life experience and the quote “You won't regret the things you did but the things you didn't do when you had the chance” made me really think about and eventually decide to go.

It was a little cloudy on the day and after being strapped up and given a rundown on what happens we scooched into the tiny plane that would take us up to the jumping altitude of 14,000ft (4,267m) where it was 0°C. By this time I was absolutely terrified but we slide up to the door and were out so fast I barely had time to think about not wanting to go. The feeling was indescribable; it wasn't like falling at all. We had 60 seconds of freefall before the parachute was pulled. As we floated down to the ground my instructor pointed out landmarks on the earth below and let me steer by pulling the handles on the parachute before coming in to a weirdly soft landing on the grass.

Overall I am extremely happy and proud that I went and I would actually go again. I hope you enjoy the video and embarrassing pictures below, also here is my boyfriend's video if you're interested, I like his video much more then my own. Fun fact: I was born in the town we jumped above!

And Thank you Byron Bay Skydive!

  13. Awww what an amazing experience with your babe! Nothing like jumping out of a plane together to really tighten the bond! I did it once (in my early 20's) and now wanna move onto bungee jumping! Which I actually hear is a better dive down! Kinda scurry, but really invigorating as well! You've reminded me that I need to cross this off the list- awesome shots!
