Hello, Skydive Suffolk!
I just wanted to send out a thank you for a great experience last Saturday, July 27. I came in with Steven's Kicking Cancer celebration and was impressed with the friendly woman who makes it all happen at the tandem check-in area. She had a packed room of jumpers and friends/families and mentioned it was likely a record-breaking day, but she kept a smile on her face and kept the groups rolling along without seeming frazzled or getting frustrated. Bravo!
Then I jumped with Eric H and had a forever memorable, great time! He exudes confidence without cockiness and was friendly and responsible, introducing himself well before the time of our jump. While Eric gave me my instructions and told me all that I needed to do during the jump and for our landing, I was so caught up in the experience that I needed extra prompting. He made sure I did what I was supposed to do, despite being distracted by my excitement. When it was time to land, I was slow to pull my legs forward but he reminded me and I finally acted. Unfortunately, in my excitement, I dropped my legs, just before landing and caused us to pitch forward. We made first impact on my shin but without missing a beat, Eric rolled us so I wasn't injured by any further impact. Later that evening, when reviewing the still shots from Doug's documentation, I saw that Eric pulled my forearms back, protecting my arms and deferring a face plant! His quick response and great instincts likely saved me from a life-altering turn of events. Instead of limping away with grass in my teeth, thinking I'd checked that off my bucket list, I walked away with a huge smile that still hasn't dimmed, and hope to tandem jump again. The only thing that hurts is my cheeks from smiling so much. Please be sure to thank Eric for me. I wasn't his easiest jump that day, but I sure do appreciate his experience and professionalism.
Thank you to Doug too for getting great pics and video! His friendliness is a sure way to create ease, both for the jump itself and the interviews.
I am singing the praises of Skydive Suffolk and reaching the >50 market with nothing but positive feedback about my experience.
