What is a Tandem Skydive?

A tandem skydive is hands down the best way to experience the thrill of skydiving without having to do it alone. Lets face it, skydiving is not a trial and error sport. Most reputable skydiving centers require two tandem skydives before a student may pass on to solo jump training.


Here's How It Works

Okay, you finally make the call and your reservation is made. You are going skydiving! You make your way to Skydive South Padre.

As you are greeted by our staff you wonder what you got yourself into. With your toes in the sand and the sun on your face you meet your instructor. He gets your harness on and adjusted just for you while your videographer captures your excitement starting to build.

After a short briefing we make our way to the air conditioned van and head to Brownsville Airport. Once we arrive it should really be sinking in now. After some more safety checks and pictures you make your way to the airplane. Time to go!

The airplane takes off and you are on your way up and out to the beach. Your fears grip loosens as you look out the windows. Getting your first look at how awesome this is going to be.

As we climb your instructor points out the the Coast and The Rio Grand. Just as you start to relax your instructor tells you its time to hook up. He makes all the necessary attachments and calls out his saftey checks. Your videographer snaps a few more shots and you make your way to the door.

Ready! Set! GO!


You're Skydiving! The first thing you notice is how controlled the skydive is. The wind is rushing by and your senses are overloaded as you fall throught the sky at speeds over 120mph. High fiving your cameraman and spinning though the air your instructor gives the sign its time to pull! Wow!


Now you and your instructor settle in for an awesome 5-7 min canopy ride above South Padre Island. If you feel up to it your instructor gives you the student controlls and lets you fly. You are starting to realize what we all know. Skydiving is fun and ANYONE over the age of 18 can do it.

You and your instructor make your last few turns and he lands you back where it all started, toes in the sand. Your cameraman and friends are there to see your excitement. Congratulations! You are officially a skydiver.
