We asked adrenaline junkie and Finder Crew member, Shirley Liu, some burning questions about skydiving, and she told us everything we’ve always wanted to know.
The scariest part is when you've spent about five minutes on the plane and you've realised what you've committed to – there is no backing out now.
Yes, I did. Everyone goes through individual checks to ensure your harness is put on correctly. You're also attached to a professional skydiver who skydives as their full-time job – that probably made me feel most safe.
The view is nothing short of amazing – though I think the location really matters in this case. I skydived right next to the beach, so all you could see was the beautiful beach and the mountains right next to it. I still remember it fully. When you initially drop you actually spin for a bit, so you get a full, 360-degree view in a matter of seconds.
The first couple of seconds when you drop – you can try and scream but you're dropping so fast that you can't even hear yourself. It's completely free fall so your stomach drops and the adrenaline is rushing.
It was, but you're wearing skydiving gear so it keeps you warm. You also wear goggles to protect your eyes from the wind.
Not at all, I actually landed on my feet. Some of my friends landed on their butts but it wasn't painful.
Yes! I'd love to try a different location.
The location you choose really matters – aim for a view you know you'll enjoy. Also, in most cases, the base cost of your ticket only covers the skydiving. So if you want photos and videos, you usually need to pay extra. In my case, I opted for the video and took screenshots as photos. You'll love it! It's an experience you won't forget, promise!
