Skydiving for the first time? Go Tandem Skydiving in Gold Coast

While Skydiving looks like an activity for the daredevils, it really is not! On Gold Coast, you don’t have to be an experienced skydiver or a professional to try the adventure sport! The basic guidelines of skydiving are simple: following a quick safety briefing session, you will be strapped into a harness and flown up 15,000 feet high after which you will skydive out of an aeroplane. The freefall lasts approximately 60 seconds after which the parachute is deployed. You can then float in the sky for a good 5-7 minutes and see the picture-perfect views below while you glide back down to Earth. Beginners and first-timers should go for a tandem skydiving experience whereas experienced divers can go solo. 

What is Tandem Skydive?

There are two primary forms of skydiving at Gold Coast: Accelerated Freefall (AFF) and tandem skydiving. While you would need specific training and licenses to try AFF, tandem skydiving as an option is available for everyone.

With tandem skydive, you’ll not attempt a freefall solo -- instead, you will be accompanied by a professional skydive instructor every step of the way. Before the jump, while in the aeroplane, you’ll be attached with a harness to an instructor; they will control the skydive, from the jump and landing to the deployment of the parachute and appropriate body positions to adapt. It is the best option for first-time skydivers or those looking to learn more about the basics of this adventure sport.

Tandem Skydive Options

Solo skydiving

For all experts and professionals capable of doing the jump on their own from start to finish, solo skydiving is the way to go! People with previous experience and/or who possess a skydiving license usually take up this option. Unlike tandem skydiving, you take complete control of your dive. From the jump to parachute deployment and landing - solo skydiving covers it all!

Solo skydiving is open to beginners as well. However, it requires you to undergo intensive training to learn about the different equipment functionalities, exiting the aeroplane, controlling the freefall, making a safe landing and lots more to experience a secure and thrilling jump.

What to Expect on Your First Skydive Tandem Fall in Gold Coast

1. Skydive slot availability depends on weather

Among several factors that play into your skydive, the weather is the most important one! Depending on the weather and availability of slots, your reserved skydive experience may move up or down. It is recommended to book slots early in the morning, around 7 AM to plan your day accordingly. You’ll be required to sign a few forms and complete the training session if the weather looks good.

2. Before the skydive

Get enough rest before skydiving. It is normal to have a sleepless night before an exciting activity like this, but a good night’s sleep will help you enjoy this activity better. Ensure that you eat light and pack some snacks which will help you keep calm and grounded. Wear loose-fitted clothes so that you’ll feel comfortable the whole day. Yoga pants, leggings, a T-shirt and a long-sleeved shirt or tops would be ideal for this experience. 

3. Arrival at skydive facility

Your Gold Coast skydive experience will begin once you reach the drop zone. It is recommended that you check in about 15 minutes before your assigned slot, allowing you to complete essential paperwork in time. After this, you’ll have to undertake a standard health check-up, where your height, age, weight and other relevant factors will be checked to ensure you’re fit for a skydive.

4. Training session

After the health check, you’ll meet your skydive instructor team. You’ll go through a training session with them, where you’ll be given the necessary instructions about your skydive. You will learn about basic skydive body movements to remember before and during the jump, what to expect, what to avoid, etc. This session should last between 20-30 minutes.

5. Gearing up and technical checks

After your training session, you’ll be provided with all the necessary equipment for the skydive. Your tandem skydive instructor will guide you towards the aircraft. To reach the 15,000 ft skydive height, you’ll fly for about 20 minutes. Before the jump, your instructor will attach themselves to you and alert you to get into position right before the jump.

6. The Tandem Fall

Now comes the moment you’ve been waiting for: the freefall. You’ll freefall for about 60 seconds with your instructor until they release the parachute. At this point, everything will slow down a bit, actually giving you time to soak in the magnificent view below. Nothing will prepare you for the view of the sparkling ocean, lush landscape and clouds around. You will freefall for about 5-7 minutes, after which your instructor will navigate a safe landing back at base.

7. Landing

During the landing stage, float back to the base while enjoying a 360-degree view of the captivating scenery around you. Upon reaching the base, you can collect any extra photos or videos you may have paid for.
