Skydiving Tips For Beginners

Skydiving, to begin with, is not a sport for the faint of heart. Jumping out of a moving aircraft can be very scary, especially if you are a first-timer but there are several ways to prepare for the big jump.

First of all, you need to be physically fit. Pregnant women, for instance, are advised against this sport. Those who have back, limb, or joint injuries should not engage in these extreme activities likewise. Your doctor can help determine whether your body can handle this so be sure to consult with him beforehand.

Typically, you shouldn’t have taken any alcohol or drugs within 12 hours preceding the jump. If you went scuba diving, you have to wait for full 24 hours before you can go skydiving.

Aside from your health, you also have to check your equipment and be sure to use them the right way. Your instructor will guide you so pay attention to every instruction.
