Tandem Skydive | Bryan Hodges from Sherman Oaks, CA
Tandem skydiving allows first-time jumpers to experience the thrill and excitement of the sport without the preparation and knowledge required for a solo jump. It only takes a brief training after which you will freefall harnessed to a highly skilled instructor from over two miles above the Earth, reaching speeds of up to 120 miles an hour. At the safe altitude of 5,000 feet the instructor will deploy the main parachute. If you choose, you can activate the parachute yourself, and then take in the view of the San Joaquin Valley, Santa Andreas Fault, on the tranquil ride down.
Your USPA certified tandem instructor will wear a special glove equipped with two cameras, one for video and one for stills, with a special lens to capture the up-close footage of you in freefall. You will be able to share your reactions and expressions of your greatest adventure with everyone!
We dub, edit, and add music to personalize your video right after you jump. You will leave Skydive Taft with your own personal USB thumb drive of your video and digital photos for you to keep. Please notify us at the time of your jump if you would like our skilled instructors to capture your skydiving experience forever. http:www.skydivetaft.com/tandem
