My home away from home. I feel safe here.

Skydive San Marcos Rated 5 by: CanopyConductor on 2013-07-24

Pros: PEOPLE, great pilot, new gear, extraordinarily safety oriented
Cons: I can't be there every day?

I started AFF here and, at first, I didn't think I was cut out for skydiving. I didn't realize how difficult it could be to fall... I just couldn't get stable. The instructors gave me great advice that has never failed me, I finally got the hang of things, and finished AFF without a scratch ;). I must say that Hank(Henry Prewitt) is an amazing person. He really went out of his way to make sure I felt comfortable and safe from the moment I arrived. No matter what stupid shit I pulled out of ignorance, he and/or the other instructors helped me through it without tearing my head off or making me feel like an idiot. The staff really goes the extra mile to ensure customers are having a friggin' great time. The world would be a better place if there were more people like these guys. I only have 31 jumps and I learn something new or actually grasp a concept I had previously been taught every time I go out there. Not to mention, whether you're doing AFF or Tandem, you'll feel surprisingly safe because the vast plethora of knowledge & sheer amount of experience these guys(&gals) have is astonishing and they'll readily share it with you. I'm out there almost every weekend & I've never seen a Tandem/AFF student that wasn't smiling ear to ear after their jump. Aside from all the fun, jokes, and drinking(after hours of course), SAFETY is put first and everybody looks out for one another. Oh, and if you're a fun jumper, the packers & pilot are awesome. I haven't been to any other DZ, but I've heard numerous stories from fun jumpers that this is the place to be because the atmosphere, packers, and people are their favorites. I've been going out there for ~4 months & I've never been maltreated or given bad information. I guess you could say I've become a bit obsessed with going out to SSM and skydiving :P
