Mentally Prepare Yourself
After booking your first tandem skydiving jump, your mind might start to wander as you think about all the new experiences ahead. A lot of people find themselves overwhelmed with this new height to conquer, however, they are usually amazed to discover that they found a new sport. Some even sign up for their Solo Certification right away!
The hardest part about skydiving for the first time is the unknown. Not knowing how you’re going to feel during this process is completely normal!
Whether you’re fearful of trying something you’ve never done before or anticipating a new height, all your questions can be answered with our FAQ or with your instructor beforehand.
In addition, we always try to encourage beginner jumpers to break down their experience into manageable steps. Start with how you’re going to prepare yourself the night before:
- get to bed early
- wake up in time to not feel rushed in the morning
- have a light breakfast
- dress in comfortable athletic clothes
- keep your hair out of your face!
