FIFA World CUP 2014: Diving Diva’s
Posted: 20th January 2014
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.
The moment when you’re feeling all confident and trying to do some crazy tandem move and your partner bails at the last minute
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!
You’ve spent hours, days perfecting your act, only to flop and be shown the door.
Even when diving your shape throwing is reminiscent of your dad dancing after one too many.

Somehow when balance and grace is required, you revert back to your two year old self.
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!
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!!
This is simply known as the pancake – it might be flat but it’s definitely NOT a smooth landing
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.
Fantastic whole-day experience!
