Posted on: June 20th, 2014 by Gordon 1 Comment

World Cup fever has gripped the nation and we have all become a nation of armchair pundits! Not wanting to be left out here at GoSkydive HQ, we thought why don’t we put our skydiving expertise to the test and give our verdicts on some of the most memorable dives from the first week…

Fred Diving good10. The Wa-hey

That moment when you’re about to land and your instructor is all calm and your still screaming with your eyes closed not knowing you’ve touched down.





vertongen9. The Dip and Dive

The moment when you’re feeling all confident and trying to do some crazy tandem move and your partner bails at the last minute





Pogba8. The We Weren’t Ready Yet!

That moment when you’re pushed out the plane and you weren’t quite ready – and your mate isn’t too happy about it either!








world-cup-brazil-fifa110-760x4907. The You’re Not Coming in Son

You’ve spent hours, days perfecting your act, only to flop and be shown the door.





Brazil Soccer WCup Switzerland Ecuador6. The Father Like Son

Even when diving your shape throwing is reminiscent of your dad dancing after one too many.








FBL-WC-2014-MATCH15-BEL-ALG5. The Toddler

Somehow when balance and grace is required, you revert back to your two year old self.














Marcello 4. The Banana Split

The look of horror when you realise you’ve nearly done the splits and are wearing yellow….You know the banana split jokes are coming!





322282_PhotoGalleryMain3. The Try Hard

There’s always one, who thinks they’ll show the rest of us plebs how it’s done… then you stand back and watch in glee as their composure and arrogance falls apart!!





2. The Pancake

This is simply known as the pancake – it might be flat but it’s definitely NOT a smooth landing








van-persie1.The in Your Dreams!

Flawless technique, oozing confidence, gliding through the air…then you wake up!

Think we’ve missed any, send us your dives of the tournament to @GoSkydive #divingdivas
