Sky Diving in WA - Andres Marin

 
Sky Diving in WA - Andres Marin
 
July 11, 2012 - 
 

I just came back from a super fun day of jumping at Kapowsin air sports in sheldon WA.

Kapowsin it is a great place to jump great energy, awesome jumpers and incredible view make that place one of my favorites places to jump, specially since I learn to sky dive there.

 

Opening the door of the plane at 13,000 feet, get to see MT Rainier and the olimpic peninsula check and make sure that no other plane is under my feet, then I jump off letting my body relax and flight while checking the beautiful landscape under me, it is an amazing felling. I get to flight for about 55 seconds check my altimeter reach for my pilot chute at 3,500 feet, feel the canopy opening over me and it is time to enjoy the ride down to the ground while making deep turns and getting ready to land. After 7 min of flying under my canopy, my INSIGHT HIGH TOPS which are my favorite shoes to jump with, feel the great security of solid ground. My Heart pumping and rush of adrenaline running through out my body I can't wait to make other jump.

One of the first people that I see is Andy Farrington which is one of the most bad asses sky divers and base jumpers in earth and a fellow fiveten athlete ask me how was my jump.

Can't wait to head back and jump some more there what a great place to do it and people to hang out with.

Thanks Kapowisn for such a great times !!!!!!!!
