Why do I want a video?
As the owner of WNYSkydiving, I made my first jump many years ago at a dropzone in Mexico. I was in college, so money was not exactly free flowing. I was making my tandem skydive as a “once in a lifetime event.” Little did I know I would someday have nearly 7000 jumps!
The owner of the dropzone I made that first jump at was selling me hard on the video (actually, still photographs were all that was available at the time). I told him I didn’t want the video. He kept pushing it. I told him I couldn’t afford it. He kept pushing it. Finally, just to shut him up, I bought the pictures at half price, which was still way more than I wanted to spend.
Now, many years later I cannot believe how lucky I was that I got these photos. There is no way to describe my first skydive (a comment I now get from my students). These pictures are proudly displayed on a wall in my home. Not only do I get to tell a great story whenever someone asks about them, I get to relive that first jump whenever I see them.
Getting a video of your first skydive isn’t for everyone, but it should be. After all, this is the only time you will ever make your first skydive!
