Drop Zone Action

Another beautiful week in paradise. The week started out great, good weather and a good crowd turn up for the week.

Ramblers had plenty of students and novices continuing through there course packages. Towards the end of the week the weather did put a hold on things, but we still managed to get up in the air for some skydiving action.

A huge congratulations to all the girls that attended the Australian women’s record attempts over the weekend. It was challenging, as the weather was not on the girl’s side at all. BUT they did manage to break 2 new records! A 2 point Total Break Sequential 24-way and a 23-way Star Formation. Check out the photos below.

Ramblers new AFF students for the week were: Taylor, Erin, and Thomas. All students started their ground training and continued through there AFF course during the week. Our ongoing students for the week were: Ben, Jason, Rain, Bella, Taylor, Thomas and Jack all continued through their AFF Course and some even started their B-Rel training jumps. Let the fun jumping begin… Certificate B training – B-Rel jumps were done by: Connor, Hannah, Dave, Glenn, Peter, Conrad and Mia.

We welcomed our newest Tandem skydivers: Hunter, Jason, Levi and Alexander – big congratulations to all who took the leap, we look forward to seeing you all come back for more.

They helped me overcome all my fears! It was INCREDIBLE!

So last week I did a tandem jump!!!!! Was such a mad time! 🤯🤪🤩😮🤗 I've never wanted to skydive before but was asked to do it for work, so I really quite nervous. But the team at Ramblers Toogoolawah were so professional and cool that they made it such an undeniably EPIC and INCREDIBLE experience! Would even do it again! Highly recommend jumping there.
