  1. Whats up everyone, kind of crazy and if you want an interesting quick read. This kind of goes into why skydiving and extreme sports arent just for the addrenaline, but the euphoric feeling. Pretty interesting. Give it a read. http://www.krush.com/blog/extreme-sports-addiction-infographic/
  2. Hey everyone, I just have a quick question. I was talking to one of your Tandem instructors and he said he had his gripper colors changed about 10 years ago on his RW suit. But the place he used has since shut down. Does anyone know of a place that I can get the colors changed on my grippers and about how much it will cost? Thanks
  3. I am not sure if you have bought the gift certificate yet, but I would love to suggest Skydive Elsinore, I am a fun jumper and just did my first jump there and it was a BLAST...absoulutley amazing.
  4. I had heard great things about Skydive Elsinore as an fun jumper, so when I found out I was going to be in Cali for a little longer than I had expected decided to check it out. Easy to find, not to far off the highway. Went in, signed my waivers and went right to the gear store to rent some gear since I didn't have mine. Great environment and awesome people inside. Plenty of people asking if I wanted to join them in a jump. Even though there was a Speed meet, and tons of tandems there was never a downtime for me unless I wanted there to be on. Two plans constantly flying gave me plenty of loads to get onto. See you all in two weeks.....everyone here is amazing!!
  5. Thanks everyone, as for the fingerpaints and pep boys custom lol it might work but I am looking for a specific airbrush design to be put on in relation to me being in the marine corps. I know I can't get cheap and good quality so just shopping around.
  6. Good morning all, I am just wondering if anyone knows a kind of cheap or good or both place to get a custom helmet paint job done. Thanks for anyone who has input. Blue skies

    Skydive The Farm

    I currently live in New York and did my first tandem in PA. A year after my tandem my dad who lives down in Marrietta offered to have me fly down to GA and do my AFF. Every bit of the week that I was jumping there was nothing short of amazing. The entire staff was friendly and busted their ass not only to get my AFF completed but also to do my entire A Licence card. I have tried setting up to go to different DZ's in NY but I always seem to have that desire to head back down to Rockmart. If I wasn't talking to Andy about windspeeds, I was talking to Hans about the next time I was coming up or any of the coaches and instructors on how to improve my freefall. At no time was I standing alone not learning anything. The knowledge is extensive, the atmosphere is nothing short of amazing, friendly doesn't describe the people. I am sure in the military I will come across other dropzones but I honestly believe that Skydive the Farm will always be my home away from home.
  9. Hey everyone, I will be going to jacksonville, nc for over a month at the end of January, just wondering if anyone has any recomendations on where to jump. -Drew
