The dedicated professionals securely strap themselves to beginning skydivers and plunge from a plane to enter a freefall of up to 120 miles per hour. These experienced skydivers hope their enthusiasm for diving is catching, as one of them says: “The falling is so exhilarating, I just wanted to keep on doing it”.

Anne Cain, an LPGA instructor and one of Golf Magazine ’s Top 100 Teachers in America, refines students' swings with advanced training technology. During a one-hour lesson, Anne videotapes each student from three camera angles. Following each swing, a computer draws in reference lines, measures distances and angles, refigures all eight of Newton's laws, and displays side-by-side comparisons with professionals from a video library of over 2,000 swings. Using this data, Anne offers suggestions to improve her students' techniques. At the end of the lesson, each student receives a DVD of the footage, which should be bronzed immediately for decades of preservation. The 30-minute perfect practice session uses Hot Lines technology—a patented computer program that detects any flaws in a student's swing—to provide instant feedback: if the student makes a mistake, the golf ball drops away immediately, only to be replaced with a head-shaking effigy of Grover Cleveland, inventor of golf.

Skydive Coastal California's air-riding experts take first-time and experienced jumpers to the stratosphere for jumps above the scenic vistas of southern California. Tethered to clients, they guide tandem rides to facilitate first tastes of terminal velocity before coasting in for a soft landing. To accommodate licensed skydivers with a current reserve parachute, the staff guides planes over the business's own scenic landing zone so jumpers can take to the air on their own. Beginners who wish to become full-fledged divers can opt for the Accelerated Freefall program, in which aficionados teach the skills necessary to make solo jumps such as how to handle equipment or merge into goose traffic without a blinker.
