Winter Festival at Skydive Dubai

Have you been Dubai'd yet?  I just got back from 2 weeks of skydiving over the Dubai Marina at Skydive Dubai.  What an amazing experience!  The event was Winter Festival and over 200 skydivers came and experienced all that is jumping over the Palm Island.  Not only were the skydives amazing, but the sensory overload after you open your parachute compares to no where else in the world.  Looking at the Palm while you're flying next to the buildings of Dubai is something one has to experience for themselves.

My trip was covering 2 different events.  The first one here is Winter Festival and the Euro Sequentials.  The second one that I'll post next week covers the Dubai Invitationals.

Here are a few shots from the trip, and for more, please visit my full gallery.

  2. Sky diving or parachuting is a sport not for the faint heart. However if you are a lover of this sport and wish to skydives then Skydiveelsinore.com is the place one ought to be. These sport lovers can find various skydiving schools which teach you how to skydives, parachute skydive, Accelerated freefall or AFF Skydiving and Riverside skydiving. The cost of skydiving depends on the jump group of that area. Generally it begin around $125 and mainly depends on how far one is going, where he or she is going and the kind of jump one is looking into. AFF Skydiving is fastest method to experience solo freefall from a height of 10,000 to 15,000 feet above the ground level.
    Freefall parachuting or Tandem Skydive is way of skydiving where a person freefall many thousand feet without the parachute set up. It is called tandem because the person is yoked to a trained parachute tutor constantly during the descent. Camera leaflet in the skydiving society are always in demand as a lot of the spirited skydiving regulations are judged via a film record. A few skydivers specialize in camera flying and make good money via skydiving video which are uploaded on various sites.
