I had two try’s at Mission Beach but because of weather conditions and overweight i couldn‘t jump. The Team of Skydive Mission Beach did nearly everything for me thanks a lot it was a pleasure. They are so friendly and because i had to leave the town to catch my flight soon asked Skydive Noosa because this was on my way of i could try my third try there. And what should i say it worked out on my last Chance!!!! One Day later, a lot of driving but at the end it comes to an Happy End. I did my Skydive at Noosa and i had the best weather, 15.000ft and no Problems with the weight. That was the best Experience of my Live!!!!! If something not works out in your live stay on, work for it and keep the Dream alive!!!!! 🤘 Hell Yeah 🤘 i can recommend it to everyone do it, it’s fucking insane, mindblowing, Adrenalin pushing and worth every effort. Thanks Skydive Mission Beach for everything and Skydive Noosa i will Never forget anything 🙏
