Risk One

Your parachute fails to open.

"First he tried to cut the failed main chute off".

Risk Two

People hitting each other in the sky

"Two skydivers were killed and collided in mid air over Southern Africa"

Reward One

Getting to say you got to skydive

"It is said that escaping your comfort zone is the first step to living"

Reward Two

Feeling free while flying

"A beautiful aspect of skydiving is feeling experienced in free fall"


Looking at the risks and rewards going skydiving is probably not worth it. Yes, you get to tell all your friends that it was really fun but if your parachute doesn't open you're going to die and falling to your death doesn't sound very fun.
