South Carolina Skydiving
There's no denying the natural beauty of South Carolina—especially when you're floating 10,000 feet above it, unable to string together a complete sentence between your screams. Though this may seem like an extraordinary circumstance, it's just another day at work for the professional instructors at South Carolina Skydiving, who strap themselves to first-time skydivers and jump out of planes high above Charleston and Myrtle Beach.
But don't worry: before all that happens, beginners are given full briefings with tutorials on how to maintain proper form. In fact, for people who make a living by free-falling to earth, these guys are as risk-averse as it gets. They impose strict weight limits, work only with high-grade equipment, and refuse to skydive when lions are present.
