A B-Rel Experience

Time to B-Relevant. (Relative Freefall Training)

You’ve now taken the first step to becoming a Super Saiyan and you’re now wondering what to do next after attaining your A license. Well, pay close attention I have the answers right here.

Step 1 – Ring your boss and tell him you quit.

Step 2 – Be a skydiver instead.

Let’s B – serious.

The B-Rels are the next step on your quest to learn how to fly more like an Eagle, and less like a Salmon. They focus on

Flying safely with others
Learning how to locate, slot and dock
Being more accurate with center point turns

If you are looking to share your new talents with your mates, this is the way to go. It’s not imperative you do them straight away, but in my opinion, it would be best to carry on your lessons as soon as possible to let those new skills you’re learning develop as fast as possible. In fact, I recommend converting some of your AFF jumps into B-Rels to get a head start. I managed to complete B3 before failing miserably on B4.

Being fabulous.
The most important part about flying with others is that you look stunning when you do it, so best invest in a super fly jumpsuit, with some streamers for your limbs, and possibly some tassels for your nipples depending on the weather.

But the ABSOLUTE most important thing about flying with others is flying safe, and that’s why the B-Rels are a must if you want to be able to jump with friends in the future.

Focussing on flying safely with others is the most important, but it’s also the most fun part you can learn, because it’s learning how to track away from your partner, to ensure you have a safe distance for when you pitch, and tracking so far, is my favorite part about skydiving.

BEEing a Keeper.
I was forced to return home to continue saving the planet. Sort of, (I’m a Bee Keeper, in case you missed it) but if I could’ve, I would have continued my B Rels so I could then jump with my friends, because after all, jumping out of a plane is much cooler if you have a friend to give the finger to.

I find myself very lucky to be near a local drop zone and continue learning here at home, but man I’m missing Moruya big time. Particularly the large drop zone target area they have because let’s face it I am not all that great at landing.

“The B-Rels bring all the boys to the yard” – Oprah

10 Tips Overcoming Fear of Skydiving

What is Fear?

It might help to get specific about what exactly you’re afraid of. Look at the pictures you have in your mind about the situation. What is happening in them? What are you really scared of? Become an observer of your inner space. Where do you feel the fear, and how do you react to it? Below are some tips and tricks that may help you turn your fear into courage.

What can YOU do about it?

Be In the moment. Ask yourself, do you need anything right now? When you center yourself in the right now, you can realise that reality is how it is at that moment. Naturally – being in the moment is easier to accept. Tapping into the power of now can be as simple as noticing your own body posture, thinking about what you can taste or smell right now and keep focused on one thing and try not to think too far ahead – focus on right now.

You’re not alone. Remind yourself that the practiced, experienced, focused, trained professional skydiver who is stoked to be going up for a skydive with you also wants to land safely on the ground as well. 

Be Thankful. Whenever you feel fear, switch it over to what you are grateful for instead. This might be different for you but for example: If you’re afraid of public speaking, be grateful for the opportunity to communicate with so many people, and that they are there to genuinely listen to what you have to say.

Be Positive. Try and change any feelings of fear to positive feelings. Instead of thinking of something bad that can happen, think of something positive. What’s a positive outcome to your fear? When you’re thinking about stepping out of the plane, imagine yourself doing it perfectly instead of the ways you could get it wrong.

Role Model. Find someone who had the fear you have, but managed to get rid of it. Therefore a skydiving instructor could be a great place to start! Get in touch with them, ask them how they did it, and learn to use their strategies in your own approach. Simply get in touch with Skydive Oz, we get asked frequently about fear and might be able to help ease your nerves.

Breathe. As simple as is sounds, how you breathe can be a powerful technique. How you breathe affects your whole body and mind. If you maintain a smooth, slow rhythmic breathing It can anchor you in the now and help you vanquish and overcome your most pervasive fears. This is one of the simplest yet effective technique for most people.

Meditate / Pray. If you are religious or not, you may consider praying for guidance through the fear. Prayer is very similar to meditation. In the end, it doesn’t matter what you choose, as long as it works for you.

The Sedona Method. This method consists of asking a few simple questions while focusing on your fear.

Release Control. Surrender. We want control and predictability, even though it’s impossible to get. Where we don’t have control, we experience fear. But is it possible to ever have control? Even if you can swim, you can drown. A professional guitar player can still make mistakes and butcher a gig. Give up the illusion of control, and you’re free.

Understand Failure. When you realise that failure is not the end of the world, you become free. Therefore, failure is just a stepping stone to success. And most of our fears are fear of failure, shame, or somehow not living up to our own standards. Before stepping into the airplane you take comfort in the fact that skydiving involves methods and procedures to help deal with physical or mental problems which could occur.
