Emas jatuh dari langit ..

I’ve done my first tandem jump at Sydney Skydivers on 31st August 2015 and can’t rave enough about it! Although the set up is very basic, they’re extremely professional and follow all the proper safety procedures. Luckily, the time I jumped was on a perfect cloudless day, so the views across the paddocks below was awesome. I felt completely safe at all times, and would recommend everyone feels this ‘high’ at least once in their life!

Million thanks to my wife who supports my decision to do skydive, as before that I need to convince her via YouTube video to show her how cool & safe the activity is.

For my first jump, I went tandem, which means I was connected to a professional. Unfortunately, he was a quite aged man, but he seemed confident enough in his ability to open the parachute and navigate to the ground. And so we flew to 14,000 feet and prepared to make the jump.

Only after the jump did I realize who Phil was, he is in fact Phil Onis the most experienced skydiver in Australia with over 24,000 skydives.

I can’t begin to explain what it’s like to hear the door open for the first time and feel the rush of wind enter the cabin. And the view is even less describable. The fall however, is the easy part; it’s going to happen one way or another. And many tandem skydivers won’t have it any other way. There is no turning back.

When you first jump out of the plane, you get that falling feeling for a brief moment, and the rest of the 45-second free-fall is absolute bliss. Skydiving is about the closest you can get to flying. And the trip down after the chute opens is pretty fun as well.

The best part is after you realize you already jump out from the plane ;)
And we’re gone…

 
Ultimate thrill of free-fall at over 200 km/hr for up to an insane 60 seconds, and then float under canopy for 5-7 minutes soaking up spectacular views of Wollongong and the Southern Sydney beaches.
Phil kept saying to me to remember to breathe normally, oh my god that was so difficult to but once I realized that breathing through my nose was much easier. The freefall lasted about 50-60 seconds and then the parachute was deployed and we started to fall slower, no you don’t get pulled up, you just fall more slowly.

 
Skydiving. Madness, Really

It’s fun, it’s frightening, it’s beautiful, and it really is a life-changing experience. If you’ve ever considered skydiving, don’t wait. You never know, you might find yourself coming back for more.

The experience was incredible, better than any ride in a theme park. The rush we got was extreme and it was an experience that will never be forgotten. Falling from 14,000ft is something many people would only dream of doing. We believe skydiving can build confidence and is one of the thrills you have to experienced at least once in your life. Recommended for all the thrill seekers out there! Can’t wait to go again…
