And my cameraman was... More

I did the 15,000 feet skydive in July 09'. I was able to book in at late notice (half an hour ahead!) to take advantage of a blue sky afternoon.

I had the most amazing dive in Lake Wanaka on Monday July 20th. After 2 failed attempts in Queenstown, it was 3rd time lucky. The staff of the phone were real friendly, I was picked up from my hotel and taken to the local airfield. Skydive Wanaka is a very professional outfit. The team there were excellent.
