  • Skydiving In OC

    I saw the thread about the parasailing and thought I might throw this idea out there. I have never done parasailing, but it seems kinda boring after the initial thrill of getting into the air. After that you are just hanging out there. I did skydiving in OC a couple of years ago and it was the thrill of a lifetime. I have done a couple of tandem jumps over the years and the one in OC was definitely the best. When you jump out you get to see the entire OC peninsula from DE to the tip of OC. It really is an amazing experience and I would do it again in a heartbeat. If you do the tandem jump it only takes about an hour of signing some papers and watching a quick video and then you are up in the air. I have never gone solo because I don’t want to take the all day class but you can do this here too, it just takes a whole day to do and is more expensive.

    Here is the link to their site. http://www.skydiveoc.com/index.php

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    Kirk, I give you credit for skydiving. I keep chickening out of Parasailing and as I'm getting older I'm starting to have issue with heights that I never had before.

    anyone else ever do this? do they let you take pictures?

      Thats another reason I go tandem, even if you chicken out, you are still attached to someone and they push you out. If you are asking about pictures of skydiving then no. You cant really hold a camera up there. You can have your jump videotaped. People on the ground can take pictures of you taking off and landing.

        Uh,................no thanks. I'm the worlds biggest chicken when it comes to that. I'd have a heart attack and die right there. WTG Kirk!

          This always worried me too - What if the guy you're hooked up to, quit taking his meds the day before, and is contemplating suicide???

            The parachutes have a built in altimeter and when they hit a certian feet level they automatically go open if they havnt opened yet and every chute has 2 chutes built into it. It is actually pretty safe.

              I was kinda kidding around (obviously) about that before, but I'm glad you posted your response. Learned something new here. Thanks!
