I have wanted to skydive since I was a young adult. On my 50th birthday my husband gave me a gift certificate. I asked my adult children and husband to jump with me and they agreed. Although I was excited to jump, I was also very scared. Ashley was my tandem instructor. She was very patient and sympathetic to my concerns and fears, and I felt confident jumping with her. She was exactly the person I needed to paired up with. When it came time to jump I had developed a trusting relationship with her and felt confident that everything would be ok. My experience was more than OK, it was unbelievably fantastic! Thank you Ashley for making my first skydiving jump everything I had hoped for and more! I will be back. Beth Maloney

This place is the best spot ever for skydiving. I heard about Westside through Groupon and wanted to give it a try due to so many good reviews, and they sure did not fool anyone with what they thought. There is nothing better than working with people who undoubtedly love their jobs and prioritize people rather than numbers; my tandem instructor, Nate, took the time to know me and made me laugh from the ground up until after we landed. I highly recommend going to this place for your first time. Everyone balances the jokes and teasing perfectly with safety and professionalism, and I could not have asked for more. I am definitely going back for my birthday again!

I was asked to be my buddies best man for his wedding over the summer so i was thinking that we needed to do something crazy, something different than just going to the bars. West side was very accommodating to our large group of 12 jumpers and they have a great sense of humor about them. What i like most of all was how educational they were about the skydiving procedure, the harness and the general science behind it. Pulling the shoot and steering it was the best part, already signed up to go again

My jump with Scooter was amazing. I was a bit scared to do it but she made me feel safe the entire time. I highly recommend Westside Skydivers for any kind of skydiving. The videos are excellent and so are the pictures. Definitely worth my money!

First time and it was a fantastic experience. As another reviewer said, a perfect balance between laid back and professionalism. Safety is #1, but it's not suffocating. Nate, my tandem, was knowledgeable, friendly, and made me feel super at ease. I was almost disappointed at the lack of adrenaline I felt before taking the plunge! They're just that good I guess! Pinky, my videographer was equally awesome. He captured the entire process like a pro. Even though it was super busy and these guys were working their butts off, I noticed each instructor gave their assigned tandem adequate attention and instruction. In addition to being impressed by the instructors, management was incredibly professional and helpful. I had a bit of an issue with my USB not having all my photos on it. Mike called me back immediately and dropboxed me my missing photos ASAP. As a sidenote, allow for plenty of time to get out there if you're going to the Texas location. The road is a bit tricky to find if you use google maps - just use their directions on the website and save yourself the trouble. Overall, well worth it. I've already purchased and will be back for my 2nd jump soon!

From the time I got there, to the time I was getting ready to jump I was laughing and having a great time. I just had my first jump yesterday and am already excited to go again! The cool thing about Westside Skydivers is that your second jump is only 125, which is an excellent deal. The video and stills are well worth $75. My tandem diver Nick was truly great!! I couldn't have had a better experience!

Do not go anywhere else! Westside skydivers made my first tandem jump very memorable! We drove 4+ hours to get there, but was totally worth the drive. Awesome, crazy, and friendly staff. Never once did I feel unsafe or uncomfortable. Staff was well trained with a lot of experience and knowledge. It was so much fun I had jump again a second time that same day. The video we purchased was awesome as well. The editing job was great and captured my experience so well. I would never go anywhere else to skydive. Nothing to complain about. Look forward to going back again and again! You rock Westside!
