Amazing Skydiving experience

Start Skydiving Rated 5 by: cntheiler on 2013-11-12

Pros: Such an amazing expereince.
Cons: Our appt time got messed up

Booked months in advance and when we arrived our appt time was incorrect which made us late for our other plans that day. That was dissapointing. Our skydive was absolutely amazing. My instructor was Clint and he made me feel 100% comfortable and at ease. It was a great day with my girlfriends and I plan to return!

I had such a blast skydiving yesterday!!!

Startskydiving did a wonderful job making me feel at ease and prepared for my jump. It was my 20th birthday and I know I will always remember this one. Lonnie Kirk you were so great!

You were making me laugh and made sure I felt relaxed and comfortable. I wanna go again! Next time I will scream during free fall to make sure my breathing is more stable hahah.
