Anyone up for Sky Diving?

  • Needs a date

  • Needs a location

  • OK I have always wanted to go skydiving and check it of my bucket list.
    I'd love to get a group together and go. I working on finding the best place.
    Tandem Skydiving is the most popular method for a first skydive. Tandem gets you in the air quickly and gives you freefall on your first skydive!
    There is a place down the shore so we could make it into a nice weekend of beach and skydiving!!

    The cost I have been seeing are around $[masked] I'm going to see if there are any group rates.

      I've always wanted to go dwarf tossing....sadly people won't let me...mostly because dwarfs hate to be tossed across a bar! Who knew! But now if you read what I have just written you too can skydive!

      April 3, 2013

  • shahram d.

    Instructions of how to be a good meat bomb...aka skydiving student!
    1) Call Hans! Tell him he has a nice accent and you know me. Give him $15 in pennies as your deposit.
    2) Show up on >>>April 20th at the Rockaway Mall @ 8am<<<. Hans and will have a short buss for you to take you from NJ to Skys the Limit in PA (http://www.skysthelimit.net/)
    3) At STL you will be given a short class on being a proper meat bomb!
    4) You will wear ill fitting umpalumpa outfit that will make you look like an escaped mental patient! It's ok.....it's slimming!
    5) You will be attached to a handsome man with soft hands...you will be his little spoon...see just like being in prison!
    6) The aircraft will fly up to 14k ft. We may fly higher depending on how much the pilot likes you. Odds are he won't so we will only be going up to 14k ft.

    April 3, 2013

    • shahram d.

      12) Land...not hard
      13) Run around like a wild flaming banana high fiving strangers and screaming "I am a god!"
      14) Get on the short buss for your ride back to the Rockaway Mall.
      15) Go to local bar and brag about how awesome you are....

    Queen Jodi,
    If everyone chickens out on this event might I suggest a carefree Dumpster Dive in its place?
    Your humble serf.

      No dumpster dive. But thanks for using my proper title.

      My Queen..if I SkyDive, there's a chance I end up as a gweasy spot on the ground. If I Dumpster Dive, I end up with a greasy spot on my shirt. Nevertheless, I am going. Huzzah!

      February 17, 2013

  • shahram d.

    Ok the season starts in 30 days. But as you can tell its freaking cold! And at a 125mph wind chill it will not be fun. Here is what you need to do if you want to jump. Save money, $200, wait for May, get a group and call skys the limit. Wear jeans and a long sleeve shirt and sneakers. If you have a question email me.

    Ok ladies, skydiving....there are only about 7% women in the sport! So you can forgo shaving your leggs or even showering and odds are some good looking well to do man who lives a fun life will hit on you!
    The only places better for a single hetro woman other than a drop zone are Engineering school and maybe the military! Hope that helps in your decision making process.

    Here is how Skydiving goes.
    50 people sing up.
    25 show up
    10 pay
    5 jump
    If you want to make your first jump STL has a very nice operation with very nice aircraft. You fly up to 14k ft and you and your Tandem Master (TM) jump.
    You free fall from 14kft-5kft at which point he saves your life.
    You fly around for about 5 to 10 min. And you land sliding on your ass.
    The cost for all this fun? $200 if you just want to jump. $300 for jump + video.
    If you want to jump solo, you need to do 10 jumps, 3 of which are tandems. your 11th jump is all on your own. And when you have 20 jumps you can call your self a skydiver. Total cost starts at $2k for the first 10 jumps and another $200-$500 for the other 10.

  • Rob N.

    I've already jumped by myself a few times via static line (self opening). Eventually that would lead to a hop and pop (quick self pull) and then full jumps. Jumping alone is far cheaper than tandem because you're not paying someone else to jump with you. After 6 hours of class for 160 bucks I payed 40 bucks a jump after (first ones free), the place is in vermont close to canada. I can send you guys more information if you would like.

    June 12, 2012

  • shahram d.

    Where are you guys and gals going to make your first jump?
    If it's Sussex; Saturday we have a fire and we all have dinner together at times. If it's Sunday the local bar has free food for all the skydivers.

    June 12, 2012

  • Sivonne

    July 21st works for me ....or August 18th Or August 25th

    June 11, 2012

  • Dave

    Saturday in August is good for me.

    June 11, 2012

  • Gael

    Ok Folks I'm call tomorrow to see about setting something up. So sorry for the delay. Is a Saturday or Sunday better in July for folks I'm looking at July 15th or 21st? Let me know or we can do a date in August?

    June 11, 2012

  • Rebecca

    This is something I've always wanted to do!!!!! Hopefully plan far enough in advance so I can save up the moola! I'm a struggling college student! :p

    Yesterday was a very nice day to just hang around at 13.5k ft

    May 21, 2012

  • Steve

    and on a day like yesterday, hanging around all day with a fun group of people is a good thing.

    May 21, 2012

  • shahram d.

    I was up at Sussex this sunday, $180 online, 13.5kft.
    If you are going to do a group event, just know you will be there all day.

    May 21, 2012

  • Steve

    So I just did a 10K jump with another group at http://www.skydivejersey.com/ yesterday and had a great experience. I don't know how they rate versus sussex but it's worth adding to your list to compare
