Jump #237: My FIRST cutaway.
Kind of a tandem factory, but also the only full-time DZ in Southeast Asia (unless you have more than 500 jumps), so you’ll still find fun jumpers here. H8ers gonna h8, but there are loads all day, and it’s less than an hour’s drive from Bangkok. Also, USD1 beers, so who’s complaining?!
A last minute trip to deliver my rig to the buyer, so 顺便跳一跳 😉 Having just come back from Dubai and Perth, jumping in Thailand was triply sweet- cheap beer trumps all.
For visiting skydivers – All the hotels that I have tried near Thai Sky Adventures (the only fun jumper dz in Thailand).
I finally have the golden ticket! Here are some personal reflections on jumping out of a perfectly good airplane and also a list of my noob mistakes for you fellow beginners out there to avoid. This post is for those thinking of taking their first jump course or getting a skydiving license in Asia.
An account of my experience as an Accelerated Freefall (AFF) student back in 2015. This is for potential skydiving students that want to learn how to skydive solo (NOT the same as tandem skydiving which does not require any lessons or experience).
