What's it like to go skydiving?

It is like standing on top of a 90 degree cliff looking straight down. The adrenaline rush coursing through your body is exhilirating. You feel fear and your body starts to freeze. A lot of things will go through your mind (mostly the thought of splattering to the ground 😆). When you do take the plunge the wind is so strong that you feel as if your skin will peel off by itself. All in all, the excitement is uncanny and when you land you will feel the relief and the joy of having the thought of doing it again.

I Found a Article that you can read

Agreed that sticking your head out the window while going 100mph is a good way to duplicate the sensation on the ground.

For me it was an awesome rush of air as I jumped out...then as the chute deployed, the pain in my armpits and around my legs as I was jerked up from a freefall was far less pleasant. Lots of bruises after that. 

I've only done it once, but was actually kind of disappointed. There was no real "high," if you will. The world didn't seem real from 15,000 feet, so there was no fear that anything would go wrong. I was also 19 and a total adrenaline junkie...now that I'm a little older, I'm not sure I'd have the same "devil may care" attitude about it. But I won't know until I do it again!

I believe that the sensations that skydiving gives you would be incredible. I haven't tested it yet, i hope one day i could.

Of course, there’s been a build up to my first sky dive. Hundreds of thousands of other people have already done this, including, I’m hoping, my instructor. I use this thought to keep me steady on the morning of the big day. I’ve met people who’ve done parachute-loads of these things, including those for whom it’s simply a matter of getting from A to B: barracks to war zone. Their plight puts my pre-jump jitters into perspective.
Then again, there’s no escaping the fact that it’s only string that’ll stop me from hurtling into the earth at 180 km per hour or, as it’s otherwise described, at terminal velocity.
As soon as I arrive, it’s obvious I don’t belong. Sun-weathered faces cluster along the bar, while the loudspeaker announces the next “drop” with all the excitement of a station manager in Epping. The whoosh of all-black ninjas turning somersaults in the air before speeding in to land gets ignored by everyone apart from us.

The two minutes of free fall was the BEST adrenaline rush of my life, it felt like flying. However, the ride down with my instructor steering made me very motion sick (windy day he had to keep doing big looping turns) so I have not done it again.

Incidentally I don't know if I could have jumped myself without the instructor dragging me along. Looking out the door I was paralyzed with fear. He counted to 3 and at 2 and a half I yelled wait and he either didn't hear me or just decided to jump with me anyway. Glad he did.

Actually its a FALLING. With safety gears. You will know the difference between live and death when earth gravity pulls you closer.

I've never done it, but friends tell me it's the craziest experience ever, my friend was super terrified of heights and skydiving so forced himself to do it, and as soon as it was it was his first reaction was "i need to do this again" haha.

It's a out of the world experience 😁😁
You get to fall from a height and enjoy the view

I've never experienced skydiving but it seems like exciting and fun to do it.
