Skydiving is the sport of leaping from heights and then parachuting to land safely, or so you might imagine. This sport was actually developed in the United States by two men in the early 1940s, who named it after their initials – Dave Dellanave and Don White. Over the years this sport has evolved in its form and has become one of the most popular sport that is also considered as a sport of extreme sports. One might ask what exactly is skydiving and why people would want to take part in this sport. The answer to that would be simple, skydiving is considered as one of the most extreme sport where in you can get the Adrenalin rush you need when you jump out of your aircraft. In skydiving there are several levels where you can participate and you can go from very basic jumps to the most complicated of jumps that will allow you to achieve a higher speed, faster descent and landing. Skydiving is a very exciting and exhilarating sport. However, if you don’t know anything about skydiving you might not know how the jumps work and you could end up doing something wrong and causing an accident. When you land from your jump you should open your parachute right away and make sure that the parachute is inflated as much as possible before you land. The more air you have in the parachute the better for you and your parachute is basically an envelope that provides you with cushioning while you are still descending to the ground. Once you have completely inflated your parachute, it is now time to release your gear. A number of things will determine how you land on your skydiving jumps. If you land properly you will only lose your canopy and parachute and you will only experience minor injuries from this. But if you don’t perform the steps correctly and land improperly, you might land on the ground severely injured and might even die in the process. Once you land on your skydiving jumps, you are going to need to take off in the same direction you are heading for. You will need to have your harness fastened around your legs and arms so that the harness won’t get caught in the harness straps or the parachute could fall away from your body and you might suffer an injury. Always keep the harness in your hands as you are falling down in order to avoid losing control of your parachute. If you have the parachute in your hand and it is too heavy, you might lose control of your parachute which could cause you to hit the ground hard.
