Famousgrouse Posted August 27, 2012 Share Posted August 27, 2012 Hello chaps Still undecided as to whether to learn this as a new hobby, biding my time! Hope to meet up with a member who's local and I already know who partakes, have a watch and see what I think. Anyway, today and unrelated- I did a tandem skydive from 12,000ft. The MOST bizarre thing I've ever done and the feeling leaving the door was something I can't describe to anyone. Freefall was fantastic and utterly weird. Think I laughed the whole time! Once the 'chute popped open however, all changed- I very quickly started to feel VERY ill. To the point that I did actually chuck Poor Mike the instructor took some of it (can't have been very much though- wasn't a full blown explosion but bad enough!) Was really annoyed with myself because I'd been looking forward to steering the 'chute on the way down and also getting a feeling for hanging from a canopy. Could've been a number of reasons, lest to say- it happened and sadly did spoil the experience for me but such is life! My question is, anyone ever feel/felt queasy paramotoring? I'm guessing it's far less violent than plummeting from a plane and the forces (generally) not nearly as extreme. As I was descending, all I wanted to do was get off the thing and get on the ground as quickly as possible- and I'm somewhat worried that I'm going to start to get ill paramotoring in which case it'll never work for me.... But I'm not comparing apples with apples to be fair... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
