Local Hero

Free falling!

28 May, 2018

Malin is one of Wicked Family’s local heroes. In a few posts Malin will let us in on her adventures as a skydiver. Hope it will inspire you to try it 🙂

I never forget my first tandem skydive jump, committed and focussed to not allow the fear to stop me. The fear only really came later, when I decided to jump on my own. I am now on jump 90 and still going…

Skydiving is an unknown world to most people, an activity that just doesn’t make any sense. In fact, less than 0.001% of all people jump for fun!

There is no explanation possible to give to people that haven’t jumped, but for those who have – there is no explanation needed!

Congratulations to other “local hero” Reon Van Der Watt, who did his first free fall during our stunt job in Namibia last week. He is now planning his journey to become a wing suit flyer. Welcome to the “blue sky family”!
