Experience a different type of tandem where you exit from a lower altitude of 7,000 feet instead of our usual 12,000 feet. A popular choice for on a budget for those wishing to try before embarking on the higher tandem.
Training is to the same high standard as our regular tandem skydives. On arrival at the parachute centre your tandem instructor will take you through all you need know to make the jump safely. This will include the equipment to be used, aircraft orientation as well as covering what you can expect in freefall and finally the position you need to adopt for landing. This briefing and training generally takes 30 minutes and the instructor will be pleased to answer any questions you may have.
For your skydive you will be provided with a jump suit, gloves, goggles and headgear. Next you will be fitted into your harness by your instructor. Once inside the aircraft you will be attached to your instructor. You will still experience that huge rush of adrenaline as you see the door open at 7,000 feet and you move towards the edge of the aircraft. Momentarily suspended outside before you exit. Your instructor will deploy the parachute within seconds and by about 5,000 feet you'll be under a Ram Air Tandem Parachute spiraling through the sky. The parachute has dual controls and you can aid the instructor in steering the parachute to make the most of the stunning views over the Gower peninsula. Your instructor will take complete control of the landing after about 5 minutes, guaranteed to take your breath away! To commemorate your skydive experience you'll also be presented with a certificate of achievement.
The cost for the Ground Rush skydive, including the instructor payment and third party insurance, is £160 per person. A deposit of £40 is required at the time of booking. See below for our booking enquiry form.
You do not need to be an Olympic athlete to become a skydiver but there are limitations as regards to your weight and mobility. The weight limits for Ground Rush tandems are 16 stone for men and 13 stone for ladies (both fully clothed). If you are over the age of 60, or rely upon walking aids for your mobility then we will require you to attend the centre for a pre-assessment before accepting a booking.
There are TWO DIFFERENT TANDEM MEDICAL FORMS.
EVERYONE has to fill out ONE of these medical forms. You may require a doctor to sign & stamp your form.
Anyone aged 16 or 17 will require the signature of a parent or legal guardian on the BPA Membership Agreement (also known as the under 18 parental consent form).

Parachuting does have an element of risk which you accept by signing the terms and conditions in the information pack and the Student training record sheet on the day of the jump. All staff ensure training is to the highest possible standard, with safety being the number one priority. If any individual is considered not capable of undertaking the planned parachute descent, before or after training, the individual will not be allowed to complete the jump. We reserve the right to decline anyone we consider unsuitable to jump on the day, even if they are within the weight restrictions.
