No more PARACHUTE !!!

Yesterday I made a skydiving it was my 20th birtday with a delay of almost one year...

But it was GREAAAAAAAAAT !!!!!!
13'000 ft from the ground (= 16'000ft from the 0 of the sea)
The falling 200km/h during 50-60 seconds. It was an incrediple moment, so fast so hight.
Then the parachute opens so relax.










Much more on myspace.

Wow, and it should be noted that you are the only one smiling* in the group pic.

Attitude (and altitude) goes a long way!









* Yes, it could be a nervous smile, but work with me here people!

You're one of the craziest girls I've ever seen.

But also one of the coolest.

... I want to do that one of these days. But I'm afraid of heights!

Oh yeah. And Happy Birthday.

Thanks, but many people do those kind of stuff.
It's not so incredible...

And thanks for my birthday, even if it's a little bit in advance (it will be on 8 of May)

Great, and what a beautiful location. I'm a Helicopter Pilot and they have sky diving at my airport but I've yet to go. Glad you took the plunge, I'm sure it was a rush.

Yeah yeah so you say. I want to do it, but I want someone to do it with me and everyone I ask always gives me a resounding "No WAY!" lol. Oh and that IS a beautiful place to skydive. I live in Texas... no mountains anywhere around here!

Deckard... the fact that you are a helicopter pilot just made your coolness factor gain +20 points. Congratulations.

skydiving, always wanted to do that, but alas, too much work atm lol

closest I've been is bungee jumping, but you can't be a kiwi and not have bungee jumped

and paraboarding,which is might difficult, windsurfing is much better

but if you combine those two, I've basically been skydiving then lol

Elodie should marry someone with the last name Jones. lol. It would be appropriate for her to be "Elodiana Jones."

Yes of course. It's an additional person who made the jump just to make a video and take pictures
