4. Eat moderately (and pack healthy snacks for the day)
Skydiving on an empty stomach is no fun. Skydiving on a full stomach is no fun, either. Think of your skydive as a moderate athletic event, and behave as such. Along those lines: Eat normally, moderately and nutritiously. Arrive hydrated (but don’t drink alcohol, or you won’t be allowed on the plane). When you pack in the morning for your tandem skydiving adventure, make sure to bring along soft drinks and a few healthy snacks.
5. Dress for success
You wouldn’t wear a sundress and flip-flops to a 10k, would you? Then don’t make a similar mistake when you dress for your tandem skydive. Wear thin, close-fitting, athletic layers and bring along extras just in case. It’s best, in fact, to pop a dropzone jumpsuit over your street clothes: it’ll keep the fabric of your clothing in check, and prevent any grass stains from cramping your style.
