My First Skydiving Experience

Sunday's skydiving went well... having done it the first time, it wasn't too bad at all. I'll admit it was fun, but my whole body ached the next day -- the muscles in my shoulders, my back, my legs, my behind were stiff. I felt so sore I couldn't get out of bed in the morning.

It was a surprise from the Hubby for our anniversary. He already told me ahead of time. I got nervous after he told me and I went ahead and watched videos online to see how others have done it.  Jumping out of a plane seemed kinda scary.

And when the day came, I didn't really feel nervous at all because I just kept thinking it'll be like a roller coaster ride. So when we got to the venue at Flyzone Bodyflight in Delta, I realized it was just indoor skydiving. My reaction was, "There's indoor skydiving available?"  Hubby being so secretive and keeping quite with this surprise and didn't tell me that we weren't skydiving out of the plane.

There was a group of 4 of us (including the 2 other guys). We sat down with the instructor and hear about the training lesson. Then we went to put on our gear: suit, earplugs, and helmet. And we were set!

It was my turn to go into the "vertical wind tunnel". There is no jumping nor falling sensation. My description would be like something milder than a roller coaster ride. It was a bit hard to breath at first because the wind just kept blowing up at my face. We just have to keep our head up and breath through our noses. After the second time, it was a bit better when I got used to it and not thinking about it. It felt like a really short session.

Here's me in the wind tunnel.

And here's Hubby in the wind tunnel.

I'm still wondering how it would feel if we did the actual skydiving out of the plane. I'd probably get a huge adrenalin rush during the fall.
