Are you a thrill-seeker? Indoor skydiving is a great experience to try and it’s new to Bali since May 2019. Even though you are not jumping out of a plane, you get to fly and have the feeling of it. When you are more experienced you can even do some cool moves mid-air without touching the ground for several minutes. This would require some practice.

Advantages of indoor skydiving?
You don’t need to arrange a plane, fuel, pilot and all involved with skydiving from the plane. Also, an important thing is that you do not need to worry about when to pull the cord for your parachute. Indoor skydiving is a great way to get a similar feeling without fear. If you plan to do some skydiving in the near future, start with indoor and if you’re in Bali why not try it now?
Another great advantage is that you can learn how to move through the air. With slight movements, you can change the position of your body and in turn, you can follow-up with more movements to look awesome for everyone to see. Just make sure your friend is filming you 🙂

Tips for beginners
Don’t expect to immediately start. You will get some instructions first for safety reasons, this is called the pre-flight briefing. This is when you also learn about the gear you get to wear (flight suit, earplugs, goggles, helmet). Then you will do some practice outside the wind tunnel. This is where you will learn the movements to go up/down or vertical/horizontal.
- Looking up: You will go down more, as you create less air resistance
- Looking down: Creating more air resistance and you will go up
- Extending arms with palm down allow you to steer a bit
In the begin, you spend most effort not to spin out of control. No worries you will receive expert help from your instructors. You are not alone and with some time and practice, you will amaze yourself. The last and best tip is to enjoy every bit of the experience of the indoor skydiving experience.
