One part of skydiving where people tend to have a bit of fun is how they exit the plane. Taking that first big leap into the open sky is only done one time every single dive, so you want to make the most of it. Here are awesome ideas for what you can do when exiting the plane.
The Human Parachute Exit
A basic jump that you can try is to turn yourself into a human parachute. You should basically be diving out of the plane with your chest facing the ground while trying to spread your arms and legs out as wide as possible to form a human parachute. This exit can be a lot of fun, especially if you link up with multiple people and take on the exact same pose.
The Tube Exit
The tube style exit requires jumping with another person since one person will be grabbing onto the other person's feet to form a very long tube in the air. Try to keep yourself as straight as possible for a bit of a challenge during those initial seconds. At the very least, it will help you stick together in the air.
The Cartwheel Exit
If you liked the idea of the tube exit and were able to pull it off, the next step up is to attempt the cartwheel exit. It involves three people that all end up linking up after they exit by holding each other's feet to form a circle. You can then start turning in the air as if you are doing a cartwheel.
The Leg Link Exit
Another partner exit is known as the leg link exit. You'll want to face each other during the exit while holding hands, and during those first few seconds in the air, you will link legs and let go of your hands. You can then lean back and still be linked up with each other with your legs.
The Train Exit
A fun group exit that you can do with many people is called the train. This involves everyone lining up in front of each other facing the same direction. You can then all hold onto each other's shoulders before jumping at the same time. You'll all form a train in the air during the initial fall while facing the same direction.
