Me and my girlfriend stopped off at Skydive Surfcity on our road trip between San Francisco and LA to do our first tandem skydives. We had booked our skydive reservation a few months in advance for the 10am slot but the owner Volker emailed the week before to ask if we wanted to move it a little later to avoid the risk of fog in the morning - we really appreciated it since if our skydive had been cancelled due to bad weather we wouldn't have been able to come back another day.
I had read in reviews for other skydiving companies to expect a lot of waiting around - not ideal when you're nervous about your first jump - but Skydive Surfcity were really quick, we showed up about 10 minutes earlier than required for our jump time and they got us started on the paperwork and safety video right away then we met our instructors and got suited up! The instructors were amazing, they've done over 8000 jumps themselves but they still made your jump feel special as they knew it was your first one. They made us feel totally at ease and we couldn't have asked for more.
The skydive itself was amazing, we chose the higher altitude jump which was great - the views were incredible and we had a perfect clear day to see the ocean.
Our photos and videos were brilliant, we definitely wanted to get everything as we're probably not going to skydive again and we really appreciated the extra time the guys spent with us afterwards getting us some photos that we could share with our friends while we were still on holiday as we wouldn't be able to download everything til we got home.
Overall an amazing experience & great customer service, if you're thinking about skydiving this is definitely the place to do it!!
