Describing the indescribable...

Everybody who hasn't jumped out of a perfectly good airplane wonders the same thing: what does it feel like to skydive?  There are both physical and emotional answers to this question.

It's such an unfamiliar concept, falling through the air at 120+ mph. Most people who have jumped say things like "the feeling is indescribable" or "unlike anything else" when talking about the sensation of freefall. Not exactly helpful. So, how is a first-time skydiver to know what to expect?

Many people wonder: is there a weight limit for tandem skydiving? The answer is yes.

But why? Well, there are a few answers to that question, and we will explain them here.

Most skydiving centers will say their weight limit for a tandem passenger is approximately 200-220 pounds for women and 230-250 pounds for men. There is typically no minimum weight, only a minimum age (18 years old in the US). But there's more to it than the number on the scale.
