Imagine hurtling towards the earth at the speed of gravity with nothing but goggles and a small backpack attached to you? This is what members of the Johannesburg and Pretoria Skydiving Clubs relish and live for.
Unlike bungee jumping, where the fall is over in almost an instant, skydiving offers people the chance to view the earth from a unique perspective. Of course, this is after you have overcome your fear of falling at break-neck speed. But once this has been done, you can then enjoy the fall to earth from the ultimate view, barring the International Space Station.
Finding skydiving clubs is a lot easier than you think. Which is great news if you are looking for that adrenalin rush.
If you are considering a Johannesburg based club, look no further than the JSC, or Johannesburg Skydiving Club. All information on the club can be found at www.jsc.co.za. When you browse the club’s website, you will see that they are dedicated to every aspect of skydiving. From safety, to club rules, to training as well as for those beginners who are looking for a once off experience, the JSC will take care of you no matter what your experience is.
Another Johannesburg based sky diving club is Sky High Tandems, primarily focusing on beginners and individuals who want to jump with an experienced skydiver. They have a 10-step plan to having a great time and these details and more can be found at www.skyhigh.co.za.
When you are considering Johannesburg and Pretoria skydiving clubs, you do not need to look much further than www.iloveskydiving.co.za should you be looking for a club based in Pretoria. This club is dedicated to all aspects of the sport. So if you are a first-timer, or an experienced professional, you will find a happy home here.
Browsing through their website you will notice that they do not throw around crazy skydiving terms that only the inner crowd would know of. They take it one step at a time so you feel comfortable in every aspect.
Beyond that it will be up to you as to your level on involvement. If you want more, then you will need to get that much more involved.
If you are still not convinced, all clubs mentioned have a “Staff” section on their web pages. Here you can browse through the staff and get a better understanding as to the experience each club has. For each staff member, the number of jumps is listed as well as the number of years each staff member has been involved with the sport. This provides great peace of mind, especially for those who are concerned with safety.
Another plus factor is that each club is setup for families, and not just individuals. Based on this, you will have a great mix between supporters and participants of skydiving and all will engage in a fun and friendly atmosphere. There can be no better feeling than finishing off an exhilarating and arriving to a warm welcome and positive support from the club members and family.
So if you are looking for that adrenalin boost this weekend, consider Johannesburg and Pretoria Skydiving Clubs as a great place to start your weekend adventure.
