Skydiving Quotes You've Learned.

Recommended Posts



"Having a blast on every jump is more important than achieving a task in every jump"

One of the discussion points I use when teaching skydiving actually came from teaching snowboarding. It goes like this:

The whole point of skydiving is to have fun. If you are having more fun than anybody else, you are the best skydiver!

Kinda along the same lines...

"If your main doesn't work, cut-away and pull your reserve. If your reserve doesn't work, walk towards the light."
