Why Starting Out Tandem Is A Good Idea
Many of the questions you might have about how to get started in skydiving are answered by the tandem skydive. The feeling of exiting an aircraft and falling back towards the earth at 120mph is difficult to accurately describe to others - and after trying to properly explain it for a while, you'll likely aim to convince them to just try it for themselves!
But how do you explain what tandem skydiving is!? Let's get into it ...
Can You Breathe While Skydiving?
We used to believe some wacky things.
For example, when humans began weighing up the idea of freefall, it was considered smart to do so curled into a ball in case the rapidly increasing velocity would rip any extended limbs right off your body!! Thankfully this was not found to be true, and over time we figured out that we can not only freefall through the sky in a comfortable, open position, but that doing so let's you manipulate the air with very precise control.
Skydiving Do’s and Don’ts.
Here at Skydive Long island, we are intentional about making tandem skydiving accessible and work hard to make your first skydive nothing short of amazing and highly memorable. Once you are committed to jumping out of a plane, your brain will likely fill with questions that mostly revolve around the idea of how to do it right. The good news is, you'll be given information and guidance at every step of the way - when to arrive and to correctly prepare, do the required (straightforward) paperwork, and nail the (fairly easy) physical tasks.
Most Nerve Wracking Part About Skydiving: Anticipation
Being anxious about going skydiving for the first time is completely normal. In the grand scheme of things we humans are land animals, and only very recently have figured out ways to take to the sky. One of the very best things about skydiving is that as soon as you jump, any fear and anxiety you were carrying instantly vanishes - and there is only the freedom and joy of being up there in the open sky.
