    The overwhelming feeling you get while skydiving (for the first few jumps for sure) isn't something you can accurately explain to someone who hasn't done it +Ricardo Williams…but you know that now…lol

    Hey +Mark Rodriguez…different areas have different requirements for helmets. At the dropzones where I've taken people on tandems, its not uncommon for both student and instructor to have helmets on (some choose to not wear them on either person…but it is a requirement of our basic safety rules in Canada to wear them).  We don't usually put a hard helmet on the passenger as that tends to be more in our way from an instructor perspective…and you can imagine what a hard shell helmet to the face can do at opening time…passengers usually get the Frappe Hats (padded leather aviation style…for the full style points…lol)

    I've gone the other way (deep ocean) +Ricardo Williams  but haven't decided on the jumping from on high yet 🙂

    I sold all my Scuba gear the first season I started skydiving +Richard Ball 🙂

    +Jeff McDonald  I did a little bit of scuba but my sinuses couldn't take it so I never really got past that. I did do a dive in one of those submersibles down 800 odd feet into the Cayman Trench and that was very interesting. I've been tempted to try sky diving on a couple of occasions but the cards never aligned. 🙂

  42. Jeff McDonald

    The submersible would be a cool experience! (I can sympathize on the sinuses, mine don't do well on a good day, scuba was hard on them)
