Anyone who’s ever chased thrills has skydiving high up on their bucket list (pun intended), and for good reason. It’s the perfect activity to get your heart racing without the risk of harm, all thanks to the rigorous safety guidelines in place. But while it is a fun way to get your adrenaline fix, it’s definitely not a walk in the park.
Because of its extreme nature, it’s best to be ready for the big leap, both mentally and physically. Luckily, we’ve compiled all the things you need to prepare for this momentous leap. Here are all the things you need to do to make sure your skydiving experience goes perfectly!
Get Some Proper Shut-Eye
Struggling to get some sleep when you know you’re going to jump thousands of feet above the ground in just a few hours isn’t unusual. However, resting up can really make a big difference in the experience, and will give you all the energy you need to take that giant leap. Really high drops like the skydiving experiences at Wollongong and Byron Bay could really use your full, well-rested energy, so drop the all-nighter anticipation, and find ways to relax, rest, and get those zzzs in.
Don’t Go Jumping On An Empty Stomach
Just like with every big occasion, it’s good to get ready with a decent meal. Getting your fill before taking the jump will help ensure your body is properly fueled for this extreme, energy-demanding activity. It will also avoid any feelings of lightheadedness or hunger, so you feel great the whole time. Even a plain piece of toast can go a long way, so make sure you don’t skip breakfast! Sneaking in a light snack (or drink) before your descent will definitely be possible if you go skydiving at Yarra Valley, known for its delicious local food and wine.
Listen To The Pros
Every skydiving activity always comes with a quick but helpful briefing from your professional instructors to make sure you’re well-equipped with basic knowledge and skills to pull off the leap. And even if these instructors will be with you every step of the way, it’s still best to listen thoroughly so that you’re informed of everything that will go down, and assured of your safety during the whole process. With the skydiving jitters out of the way, you can allow yourself to focus on the uniquely breathtaking views, making skydiving adventures at stunning coasts like Perth Bay even more memorable.
Watch The Weather
The weather might not always participate, so it’s best to keep yourself posted on the current weather conditions for any major changes. If the forecast makes your skydiving plans unsafe, be ready to make the necessary rescheduling changes for the activity, so you can ensure that your thrills are paired with safety. If you’re lucky to get clear and sunny skies, skydiving adventures at Australia’s most beautiful spots like Perth Rockingham and Cairns will reward you with some of the most breathtaking sceneries you’ll ever see.
It looks like you’re all set for the big leap! Now all you need is to find the perfect skydiving experience for that much-needed fill of thrills.
