Skydive for Unbeatable Views, Thrills, and Excitement

Aug 17, 2007
Skydiving is a hobby that's enjoyed by people of all ages. A favorite of those with a penchant for thrills, this hobby can be a little costly, but for those in love with its draw, nothing compares with a clean jump for fun, excitement and pure adrenaline rush. The fun of it all is what keeps people coming back.

There are those, of course, who say "Why jump out of a perfectly operable plane?" Skydive lovers will respond: "because it's there." The views, the thrills and the sheer excitement combine to make this sport one that's loved by people the world over. Jumpers can virtually be of any age as long as their physical condition doesn't impede them from taking part in this thrill-seeking sport.

First time jumpers will find the experience is like no other. Just imagine standing thousands of feet above the earth's surface and jumping to the depths below. Freefalling through the sky as the view below is taken in in all its glory. Nothing, absolutely, nothing compares.

For those with a desire to skydive, there are plenty of locations the world over willing to take first-timers and even fiftieth-timers on tandem jumps or offer training for solo jumps. From Florida and California to Colorado, Europe and beyond, any place there's a small airport, there's likely to be a skydiving opportunity available.

First timers will find that most jump locations require them to go tandem at least for a while. Specialized classes generally are required for those who want to jump. The on the ground training will generally be offered at no charge for those who want to jump. If the schooling scares them off, there's no charge.

The courses cover the basics involved in jumping and prepare those new at skydiving for what to expect. Since most beginners' jumps are tandem, though, the student shouldn't have to worry about needing to know it all as an expert. Tandem jumps are assisted by experienced divers who handle all the necessary maneuvering so the "newbie" can kick back and enjoy the view - provided his or her eyes are open!

So, what's the appeal of jumping from a plane? The view, of course! Sky dive locations in places such as Las Vegas, for example, give participants a view of the earth from several miles above the ground below. Imagine being able to take in the Strip, Hoover Dam, Lake Mead and the Colorado River all at once! Nothing quite compares.

It might not be for everyone, but those who love to skydive say they do it for the thrills, the freedom and the views. Few things can come close to the thrill of a freefall from several miles up while the eyes take in sights only the birds are generally privy to. The sport in and of itself is loved by thousands the world over of all ages. Getting started, too, isn't as expensive as it might seem and generally there's no risk for those who just want to "check it out" before they commit.
