Yesid - 500 jumps

Looking to get out of my comfort zone, give a change to my life as an engineer and fulfil a point on my bucket list, in September 2018 I decided to jump out of a plane starting my AFF course at Xielo Skydive Colombia. There I completed my first 50 jumps and later decided to travel to the United States of America seeking to satisfy my desire to fly and expand my horizons in the sport.



In the USA, for six months I travelled through many states, jumped in many DZ's including Deland, Perris and Z-Hills, I also flew in a wide variety of planes. At that time, I was flying in order to learn and accumulate knowledge to start flying wingsuit. At that point in my skydiving life I had only seen videos and I knew the story of Jhonathan Florez as a world reference, here I knew that this is what I wanted to fly.



After my time in the USA and accumulating 200 jumps, I decided to travel to Australia. I settled in Brisbane and started my new skydiving stage at Skydive Ramblers. Here I started my wingsuit flight course with Ben Nordkamp. Then with inspiration from wingsuit enthusiasts like Luke Rogers, Tomic Kluzniak, Jeff Weatherall and Peter Kerr I was motivated to compete for the first time in both the 2021 National and State Championships, with fear! But with the idea that I inherited from Tomic, "the competition is always with oneself".



Now, after three years in the sport I have accumulated 500 jumps, many experiences and friends, additionally I am preparing to compete in the 2022 Australian National Championships at Nagambie seeking to continue learning and feeding this desire to fly, the same ones that germinate from the first moment in which we know heaven.



Skydiving is magic, every jump, every wingsuit, every friend, every DZ always has something we can learn from.

Shelby - 4 years in the sport.

“I started skydiving just before Christmas in 2017, doing my AFF course at Skydive Ramblers. I got into it after doing my first tandem with my dad a few months earlier and being completely hooked from the first moment.

Since then, I’ve done just over 950 jumps at 10 dropzones across 4 countries and I have no plans of stopping any time soon! I’ve made more likeminded friends than I could poke a stick at and laughed more than I ever thought possible. I’ve made countless memories from every single fun jump I’ve done from night jumps to early morning hop’n’pops and competition jumps to demos and coaching. I even had the opportunity to assist with judging at the Danish, German and Austrian Canopy Piloting Nationals.

If I had to choose, I would say that my most memorable jump would be my 800th jump which was a sunset hot air balloon jump in the Czech Republic. It was a very surreal and exciting experience to be in a balloon climbing to height with 5 new friends who all spoke different languages, what a laugh. We had to sneak into a farmers field to launch the balloon and try to do it quickly enough that we wouldn’t be noticed. The view and experience was something I’ll never forget and the sunset colours for landing back at the dropzone absolutely blew my mind; I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face for a long time after that one.

Skydiving for me, is home. I love the community we all form part of. The opportunities are endless in every way and you never know what’s coming next. I hope to be and can’t wait to be jumping when I’m geriatric! 👵🏼”
