No. of Jumps
Skydiving for most is an extreme sport in itself. But for a base jumper, skydiving is often referred to as 'the training grounds'. A world above to test new suits, new canopies, new ways of flying. Why here? Because of the altitude.
Altitude is a jumpers friend, allowing safety margins to compensate and adjust for things. In base jumping parachutes are pulled around 200 – 600ft off the ground. Where skydiving gives us the room to open up 2500-3000ft high. It gives us more time to work out challenges. And more time to use your reserve parachute if needed. (Base jumping has no reserve parachute, no back-up)
The training grounds also double as the, “Lets just mess around” grounds which makes skydiving a no stress all fun good time!
