Skydiving in Sebastian has become increasingly popular because of our spectacular views. Many say it is one of the best locations in the world to skydive.
Jumping out of an airplane can be scary, and our bodies respond to certain dangers such as fear. As you move towards the open door of the aircraft, your heart rate dramatically increases.
In fact, most skydivers who have thousands of skydives under their belt still feel a significant spike in their heart rate as they move towards the door. It’s also natural to feel this way. For most skydivers, it’s the feeling of excitement!
When jumping, experienced skydivers say it’s an awesome feeling because you don’t feel like you’re falling. You’re riding on air molecules that remove that plummeting feeling.
We spoke with skydiver Juan Diego Grisales who makes jumps regularly.
“I started skydiving around two years ago. I am on 96 jumps, and it still freaks me out. But I love it. It’s such a great sport to do during the weekend to start off the week fresh and waiting for Friday to go back and jump again,” Grisales told Sebastian Daily.
Most people will not skydive because they are afraid; after all, you are trusting the parachute. But Grisales says it’s not like that with skydivers.
“My advice for people who are too scared to try it. Well, just do it. Once you jump, you will feel stronger and confident. And there are people that work doing this and jump around 10 times a day, for the whole year. So it’s a very safe sport,” Grisales said.
On any given weekend, when weather permits, you’ll see the skydivers hovering Sebastian as they get closer to their landing zone at the Sebastian Municipal Airport.
