DZ where you learned to jump: Most of what I've learned skydiving, I've learned from jumping with the LOs at Perris. I did my first jump at Perris in 2017.

Nationality: Canadian

Favorite Quote: "You can't soar like an eagle, if you surround yourself with turkeys."

Most memorable jump: It's honestly so hard to pick one. The jumps that go perfect are great because they worked, the jumps that don't go as planned are great because they're usually very funny, the jumps where you land off are memorable because you got to adventure and find a way back, I like the jumps with new(er) jumpers and seeing them have "light-bulb" moments when they realize it works. My "firsts" are always memorable too, I was so nervous once I caught myself petting another person in the plane. I seriously just love jumping, everything about it... except when someone farts in the plane, I could do without that!

Nationality: American, from the North

Favorite Quote: Prayer before every jump: “Dear God, please don’t let me f**k up first, or worst. Amen!”

Most memorable jump: My 500th, a completed 20-way with some of my best friends at Perris. Afterward I got pied with about 20 pies & tossed in the pool. :)

Dz Where I Learned to Jump: Skydive Perris with Jim Wallace Skydiving School

Nationality: USA [and German (I'm dual!)]

Favorite Quote: "Alive or just breathing?" or "Measure twice, cut once"

Most Memorable Jump: There are so many....hmmm....Jumping into the Playa at Burning Man 2011 was super epic. And jumping into Sorrell Ranch in Moab, Utah was breathtaking. I will never forget my first night jump or my first balloon jump. I wish balloon jumps were easier to get to (it's hard to get up at 3 am for a jump) and cheaper because I would do those every day if I could. Oh and the cross country high pull at Lost Prairie Boogie was amazing. Oh and the glacier jump in Alaska wasn't too shabby. Oh! and the Lake Havasu Boogie jumps were beautiful but unfortunately no longer allowed. OH! and the solo jump in Interlaken, Switzerland was beyond belief!

Where I learned to jump: Skydive Perris

Nationality: Persian

Favorite quote: "I can quit anytime!"

Most memorable jump: My first (already gave beer so don’t ask)! Skydiving was never on my bucket list but I did it anyway. I hated it so much that never tried it again! Oh wait a second…
Before your first jump you are asked to sign a waiver. I think they should change it. It should include: “Skydiving is highly addictive, time consuming super fun sport which results in rapid deflation of your bank account/wallet. You understand that we are not liable for any addiction therapy needed in future
as a result of skydiving.” 
Although I should mention that I can quit ANYTIME! *SNIFF* this jump ticket smells so good!
