T Minus 1 Day

Take Care

Eat normally; drink water; get sleep. You want to wake up bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, ready to seize the day!

Stay Sober

Skydiving hungover is awful and, per FAA rules, you can’t skydive if you’re under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Pack Up

Grab your ID (and student/military ID if applicable), the card you paid with, snacks and water, and a sweatshirt.

Do Your Reading …

Complete the waiver and safety briefing documents you received with your confirmation email and waiver email.

… And Your Math

No SCUBA within 24 hours of jumping – SCUBA diving before skydiving may lead to decompression sickness.

Be Prepared

Remember, we are at the mercy of the weather gods. Pack your patience and good vibes.
