Skydiving is NOT like riding a bike

Recommended Posts

At least, not for me.

About 8-10 years ago I did 87 jumps. I was definitely not a natural. Life circumstances took me out of the sport.

On Saturday, I sat through a FJC and then did a currency jump with an instructor. From the unintentional front flips out the door to the backsliding all around the sky, it felt like I did back at my 5th jump. I suspect that it was mostly the combination of being very rusty and being very NOT relaxed. I've got some tunnel time booked in a couple of weeks, and definitely hope to do a few more instructor or coach jumps as I ease back in.

Those first few seconds out the door, though....I've missed that a lot.

Anyway, it is good to be back in the sky, and also, lurking here on DZ.com.
