I have a fear of heights and a compulsion to jump. And if you want to do the kind of stunts like you see on this website, you know, flying down the Matterhorn in winged suits, base jumping, that sort of thing, you've gotta start somewhere.
Here's my start: jumps 1-4 of my Accelerated Freefall Course with Target Skysports and Skydive Spain in Seville.
Unfortunately bad weather meant I couldn't finish the course during the week I was there but I should be going back soon and getting my full 'A' license and maybe even joining in the Christmas Boogie.
But just so you know we can't all be glamorous and look cool when starting out, I've left in the shaky legs, hand waving parts of my learning curve. Hopefully it'll make you feel better about yours.
