Take a giant step into the wonderful world of skydiving!
Let us introduce you to the thrill of unassisted flight with our tandem instruction program. We have developed the safest – and most enjoyable – way for you to make your first skydive. Prepare for the adventure of a lifetime! After one hour of orientation and ground instruction you will ascend to skydiving altitude with your instructor ready to skydive San Francisco. Attached to your instructor, you will exit the aircraft on parachute equipment built for two. Imagine yourself entering the boundless sky in freefall, hearing and feeling the rushing wind as you accelerate to speeds of up to 130 M.P.H. This freefall sensation has been described by many as “floating on air” as you relax and become comfortable, your instructor may take you through a series of turns. At 5000 feet, you or your instructor will deploy the parachute. Enjoy a breathtaking ride on a modern ram air parachute over the scenic Northern Californian coast. Best of all, you will learn how to fly and control the parachute in this phase of your skydive. You will be able to practice your landings with your instructor for a smooth touchdown. This is a low pressure, high thrill and breath-taking skydive. It is a perfect first jump for those wanting an adrenaline adventure.

With us you will never feel like “just another jump”. Although our instructors have done many thousands of safe skydives we do realize that your jump is YOUR first! We are the ONLY skydiving provider in Santa Cruz, California. Skydive Surf City focuses on first time Jumpers! With about twenty minutes of instruction, you will gear-up and fly up to altitude. Then, while harnessed to a fully trained and licensed tandem instructor, you will leave the aircraft and freefall to an altitude of about 5,000 feet, a trip that takes about a minute at approximately 120mph. Once the parachute has been deployed, you will have four to five minutes of time to enjoy the view, learn about parachute flight, practice for the landing, and just enjoy the ride. You are then invited to assist in flying and landing the parachute softly and safely onto our landing area.
