34 Do a parachute jump
Skydiving is one of the fastest growing sports in the UK offering divers the
freedom to make the sky their own.
Skydiving as a competitive sport
requires total body control, knowledge of the air and a great deal of skill to
allow the parachutist to perform acrobatic manoeuvres as they descend. For
most enthusiasts and first-timers alike, a straightforward descent remains
both exhilarating and hugely enjoyable.
Doing a parachute jump is one of
the most exciting and nerve-racking things you will ever do. Your first jump,
after some initial training, may be taken on your own. Alternatively, you may
opt for a tandem jump, strapped to an experienced instructor so you don't
have to worry about pulling the cord too late or landing in a tree. The feeling
of freedom and weightlessness combined with the adrenaline rush is
something everyone should experience at least once. Again, to add to your
motivation, why not do the jump for charity and raise money for a good
cause at the same time?
