Looking to learn how to indoor skydive? The instructors at CLYMB Abu Dhabi, the UAE’s ultimate indoor adventure hub, are sharing some tips on how beginners can gear up to experience indoor flying
GET SUITED UP
Before visiting CLYMB Abu Dhabi, make sure you’re dressed in comfortable attire. It’s important to be completely at ease so you can fully enjoy the indoor skydiving experience. On arriving you’ll be provided with the equipment needed before sitting through a short training session.
WATCH AND LISTEN CAREFULLY
Before you hit the flight chamber, you’ll be given a brief that explains the positions required while in the flight chamber, as well as hand signals your instructor will use to communicate with you. This is also a great opportunity to ask your instructor any questions you may have.
STRETCHING IS KEY
Stretching is a crucial step before tackling any physical exercise. Prepare yourself for the ultimate indoor skydiving experience by stretching and warming up your muscles. Stretching will also help you feel more relaxed before the adrenaline rush of indoor skydiving/flying.
CHIN UP, YOU’VE GOT THIS!
As soon as you enter the flight chamber, simply lower yourself forwards through the door and keep your chin up. Next, arch your body by keeping your hips down, and you will soon be in the perfect body position. Then, let the airflow hold you up and help you float.
As you feel the airflow beneath you, hold still but stay relaxed. When you hold still, your instructor will be able to correct your initial body position (this is where your training comes in handy!). The key is to hold still and remain calm to enjoy your flight to the fullest extent.
YOUR INSTRUCTOR IS YOUR BEST FRIEND
During your experience, keep an eye on the signals your instructor will communicate to you with their hands. By following the instructor’s guidance, you’ll be able to maintain a stable flying position, allowing you to make the most of your exciting experience.
KEEP CALM AND FLY ON
It’s normal for beginners to get nervous before stepping into the chamber – but have no fear, your instructor is here! The instructors recommend staying calm and relaxed to remain in control of your body. This will also help you be better aware of your body movements.
LESS IS MORE
With indoor skydiving, the less you move, the better your experience will be. By starting off with small movements, you’ll be able to get a better grasp on the relationship between your body and the airflow, after which you’ll be able to feel what works for you and what doesn’t.
Indoor skydiving is a really fun activity that you can definitely get the hang of when you’ve tried it a couple of times – keep breathing, stay cool, and you’ll be a pro before you know it.
THE FUN TIMES NEVER STOP
Smile! Enjoy the state-of-the-art experience and remember that CLYMB Abu Dhabi’s instructors are with you during your flight. The instructor is there to help you learn the techniques, from the basics to the more advanced moves.
