Tandem Freefall

Tandem Skydiving

Tandem Freefall

For thrill-seekers new to the experience of skydiving, tandem skydiving is perhaps the most popular means of becoming acquainted with this thrilling activity. Other types of introductory skydiving practices, such as static line and Accelerated Free Fall, will require extensive training for the uninitiated. With tandem skydiving, a person can simply show up, present a valid ID, listen to the safety instructions, and find him or her in the sky shortly thereafter. This is because during freefall in a tandem skydive, a novice jumper is attached to a tandem master, who will be well trained, certified and able to take care of the all the technical aspects of a jump. A beginning diver doesn’t need to worry about anything besides managing the surge of adrenaline that comes right before jump!

Preparing for a Free Falling Experience in NJ

Although relatively little preparation is needed for a tandem jump than what would be necessary for a solo dive, there are still a few things to keep in mind. It tends to be chilly at higher altitudes. Even if you’ve scheduled your jump during the dog days of summer, bring something warm and comfortable to wear. Regardless of the weather, it’s also important to remember to wear sneakers and only sneakers. Boots are not recommended, primarily because a tandem master would like to avoid touching down with massive bruises on their shins. Sandals and slippers are also discouraged for obvious reasons when planning to freefall at speeds up to 120 mph.

Experiencing a Skydive Tandem Freefall

Once a person is versed in the necessary procedural regulations and requirements, as well as fitted with their jump equipment, then the only thing left to do is jump! So how does a tandem freefall feel? Even attached to a tandem master, a dive is an extremely personal event. It will be loud, and once your feet leave the floor of the plane, all your normal concerns will disappear. The actual jump will last less than a minute, however it is far removed from the range of average experience, it can seem like it all happens in the blink of an eye. It also could feel as if floating without any real sense of how quickly time is passing. At first, there is the sensation of acceleration; but once all the surrounding stimulation sets in, many describe achieving terminal velocity as feeling as if they are flying.

Planning a Free Falling Experience in NJ

There is nothing that quite compares to the thrill of skydiving: the sheer altitude at which the jump begins, the speeds at which the body travels during the fall, and the incredible and unique perspective of the landscape below. It is an activity that can only be fully understood by getting out and trying it. With tandem skydiving, the commitment is minimal and anxieties are diminished, which leaves a person free to embrace fully the experience.
