Defying Gravity: Jorge takes a dive!

Tsunami Skydivers' Boogie in Belize V

It is considered one of the most extreme sports in the world, but skydiving can also be considered the best, it all depends on who you ask. The Boogie in Belize group from Tsunami Skydivers Incorporated is no stranger to the people of Ambergris Caye and Belize. For the past five years many eager spectators have flocked the beach annually to the landing drop near Coco Locos Bar, north of the bridge. The day is enjoyed while taking in the scenery as the divers jump out of a shark painted plane, open their colorful parachute and land on the ground in a perfectly safe condition. And while many prefer to enjoy the scene, many also like to be front and center of the action.

The San Pedro Sun’s Jorge Aldana was one of those eager to try out this extreme sport, and he got to experience a true bird’s eye view of La Isla Bonita. Read more about his experience in Thursday’s edition of The San Pedro Sun.
