    Thumbs Up Sky Diving! Bloody Ace!

    Was a 21st Birthday present from my folks and did it last weekend, here's the pics (albeit not many).





































    It was a RAPS 2 day course with 1 jump, when i finaly got back to the fence line i couldnt stop smiling, truly an undescribable experience, so much so i've got my next jump booked a few days after i get back from my hol's

    Anyone thinking of doing it, DO IT!..

    Was brilliant, i was bricking it right up until we got upto 4000 feet and they opened the door and i have to sit with my legs hanging out then i crapped it!. But i think itll only be the once.

    The price was blanked as it was a birthday present but iirc the school said it was around the £250 mark.
    Dont hesitate though its like a crash course and saves a lot of time.

    I thought that, there was a guy in our group that was doing the jump because he was scared of heights and planes , that was the funniest part of the day when he told us all that.

    go for it. It was a solo jump, the chute is automatic (if it doesnt fail) but you control it, pull the reserve if neccesary and basically have all the fun .

    Seen it on FB, its pretty awesome, saturdays fun, If your in a group bigger than say 5 be prepared to stay from 8-7 on saturday, if you all get there early sunday though you'll probably get the first and second plane, i had to jump on the second as my folks were late lol.
