An exciting/fun jump guarenteed

Skydive East Texas/East Texas Skydiving Rated 5 by: Mr.mike on 2011-07-22

Pros: Friendly, move at your pace, make you feel comfortable, safe, really good people
Cons: None

For my 21st birthday I went to Skydive East Texas to do my 1st ever jump. These guys were super professional and extremely friendly. I was a bit nervous so I kept asking questions and they never once acted irritated. They answered my questions thoroughly and enthusiastically and gave me great tips (chewing gum to pop my ears on the way up). Wore a smile the whole time and put my mind at ease. Would highly recommend to anyone interested in jumping :) A++++++++++

Nicest, most professional people on earth

Skydive East Texas/East Texas Skydiving Rated 5 by: melliek322 on 2011-07-09

Pros: Professional, courteous, caring, safety-conscious
Cons: NONE

It's unfortunate that one person had an unpleasant experience. However, I SERIOUSLY doubt that they were ever rude-it's just simply not in their character to be that way. I feel this person just didn't get an answer he wanted. Both my husband and son have skydived with Cori & Lee and found them to be the most professional, courteous, safety-conscious people around. My family thinks highly of Cori & Lee and will continue to skydive with them.

Skydive East Texas/East Texas Skydiving Rated 5 by: Pilot111 on 2011-07-08

Pros: Safety and professionalism
Cons: none

There is a saying among we pilots when we want to send a compliment to a fellow aviator,"You can fly my wing anytime" I will jump with East Texas Skydivers "Anytime" From one professional to another, Hooooahh!

Can't trust my life or money with these people

Skydive East Texas/East Texas Skydiving Rated 1 by: TexasFight on 2011-06-27

Pros: Never got to the startup
Cons: Extremely rude and unprofessional

Local friends told me not to use them. Thought I would take a chance. Friends were correct. They were very rude and would not answer my questions. They said I needed to come in to see if I was too big. They told me to just call their competitors. So I did. Dallas Skydive and San Marcos Skydive were so nice and helpful. Dallas said the chute doesn't know if my weights fat or muscle so why do they need to see me? Booked with San Marcos 6 hours away.
