Skydiving
So I just got my A license and need to start logging some jumps for my FS1, if anyone is around in the UK with a license, drop me a message and we can book up some jumps, my local clubs are at Sibson or Chatteris, however I got my license all the way over at Netheravon so I can travel a bit.

Also interested to see how many of you have tried freefall (Not Static Line jumps or Tandems)

It's the adrenaline rush, the feeling of freefall, particularly the first time you try it, even if it's just for about 3-4 seconds on a static line, is genuinely like a better high than any drug.

Get back to me when I've got over a thousand jumps logged and i'll take you on a tandem, it's not the same feeling as doing it yourself but it might give you the confidence to do a static line jump.

Mine did for the first couple jumps, you don't remember the first few seconds, but everything you've learnt means you just go straight into autopilot and you don't really have to think about it, it's only later on that you're actually conscious of the whole thing, would recommend.

Someday I might want to try it but that is awhile from now. I would have to really work up the courage.
