Published: August 20, 2020

If you're searching for "what to write on your hands when skydiving" then it's likely you've booked your jump, locked down a media package and are now thinking about the finer details like adding messaging to your hands. Many of our guests do this with social media in mind to build engagement and grow their audiences! We love it, because that's the energy and fun we're after as well! Through our nearly two decades of skydiving on Long Island, we've seen a whole host of skydiving captions that have made us laugh and in some cases have made us shed a tear as we've seen some emotional tributes!

In this article we're not only going to show you the best skydiving captions for your hands, but also share some insights that will help you rock your photos to build your social media engagement and grow your audience.

 What To Write On Your Hands When Skydiving

Skydiving Captions For Your Hands

Writing captions on your hands during your skydive is not only a fun thing to do, but it's also a great way to spice up your photo and videos because you won't be able to communicate verbally! Due to wind noise, your video is going to be dubbed with background music so making a statement with your hands in free fall is the way to go.

Here are some of the most common skydiving captions we see from our guests:




Jesus take the wheel! #photooftheday You only live once!
Sorry Mom! #followme Life is short. SKYDIVE!
Making Memories! #girlpower Less stuff. More memories.
I love __________! #instagood Living My Best Life.
Wish you were here! #empowerment Will You Marry Me?!
YOLO! #lovelife Life is for living!

Framing the Best Skydiving Image for Social Media

Once you've got the messaging down, it's time to think about framing the perfect shot which includes hair prep and wardrobe (we're not even joking!).

If you don't want your hair to be the first thing that everyone notices (assuming you have long hair), you'll want to make sure that you bring some hair ties to keep your hair under control during your 120mph free fall! For guys with big bushy, ZZ-Top beards, you'll have the same consideration - keep that beard on lockdown!

  • Skydiving Photography for Social Media - What to Wear

As for what to wear, ladies may wish to give more thought than men in this department especially for social media. Because footage is shot from the wrist of the tandem instructor, photos can be more revealing than intended if wearing low cut shirts. We won't go further on the topic, but you'll want to keep this in mind as you think about what your photography will look like especially as you'll be sharing these images with the world!

Skydiving Photography for Social Media

  • Eyewear

Eyewear is something to consider especially if you're wanting the best outcome for your photography. At Skydive Long Island we provide guests with two different types of eyewear to protect the eyes during freefall. Goggles designed for people who wear glasses can be a bit bulky / boxy and dont' present quite as well as goggles used for those that don't wear glasses (lower profile). If you wear glasses, but have the option of wearing contact lenses, this may be preferred.

  • Messaging

If you do have a statement you're wishing to make (like an inspiring message), the place to do that will be under parachute. Your tandem instructor will be capturing both your video and photography while flying under the parachute and it will be very quiet during this portion of the jump as the wind noise won't be noticeable. This is the place to share your love, enthusiasm, politics... or whatever you wish to share with the world!

Media Provided for Social Media

Skydive Long Island proudly uses the most advanced video editing technology in the skydiving world today! We use a camera and editing system known as Revl. Revl uses artificial intelligence to quickly edit your video and delivers it in three different formats within 20 minutes of your skydive. The edits are as follows:

• Instagram Edit - 45 sec

• Freefall Edit - 60 sec

• Full Edit - 3-5 min

Once you receive your fully edited video, you will be able to easily share to social via the Revl app in seconds. If you wish to customize your video, you have the ability to select from over 9,000 songs licensed by Revl.

I think we covered it all! Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact us! We're happy to help!
