On the 24th of May 2016 I did my first time jump course, then decided to do AFF and started on the 25th of June. My first freefall on my own is probably the scariest, but also most amazing thing, I have ever experienced. I was standing on the step, holding onto the strut supposed to remember this whole sequence that I needed to do with the instructors and all I could think was how stupid I had been for signing up for this, everyone was right, why would any sane person want to jump out of a plane, maybe I could just climb back into the plane, somehow I just kept doing what we had practised on the ground and there I was letting go…little did I know in that instant I was not just letting go of a strut, but of the person I had been prior to that very moment.
Just like everyone else I wish I had started skydiving sooner, but as cheesy as it sounds rather late than never. Even if I had the opportunity to learn how to skydive at any drop zone in the world, I would choose Robertson and I think that says a lot.
