If you want to go skydiving, having the proper equipment is a must. Although there are some equipment that are considered to be staples or standards when diving, there are also those that can be add-ons depending on your body and the type of jump you'll be doing. One of these extra equipments is called weights.
Skydiving, as the word implies, is an activity in which you'll be literally diving down from the sky with some safety measures, of course. It's done from an airplane or a helicopter which takes off from a drop zone, which is like a small airbase. If you're planning to do this breathtaking activity, then you should be prepared to know that skydivers would usually exit their airplane at the height of 4000 metres or 13,000 feet. After doing so, you would have to do a freefall for a period of time and then you could open your parachute to slow down your descent until you reach a safe and slow landing speed.
Skydiving can be one of the most exhilarating experiences of your life. Choosing to free fall from thousands of feet above ground not only requires professional training but it also requires a few key pieces of equipment. Without the proper equipment, the safety of your experience can be severely compromised.
