The first time I jumped I was in Cuba. My parents and my siblings all jumped with me. At first, I was really scared, but then I started to relax. The view from the sky was incredible, and is something I'll never forget. After I landed, I couldn't wait to get right back into that helicopter and do it again. I love skydiving so much that I can't wait until I am old enough to do it here on Long Island.

Before you go skydiving, you need a lot of equipment. You'll need things like your goggles, harness and the rig, which is important for opening your parachute. You'll also need your helmet, jump suit, boots, sky board, and camera. Skydiving is so much fun, and I can't wait until I can do it again. Check it out. I'm sure you'll love it as much as I do.
