Yes, that’s right, there are actually people out there who professionally compete in freestyle skydiving competitions. It may not seem like it but this is actually a very competitive sport. You see besides the fact that you are falling from an airplane there is actually a whole lot more to this sport. Firstly, the entire point of this sport is for teams of two to perform aerobic actions while free falling. You should know that both teammates don’t perform at the same time. Instead one will record their partner with a camera mounted to their helmet. It is important to note that all safety protocols are followed.

With that said, you may not be too keen on freestyle skydiving and that is totally understandable. Luckily, if you are still trying to get your thrill on you can with indoor freestyle skydiving. That’s right, you can do this indoors. Now you will still technically be flying excerpt you will be doing it indoors in a safe and secured vertical tube. But that’s not all, indoor freestyle skydiving is also done to music which adds a certain level of whimsy to this very extreme sport.
