Tandem Skydiving gives you an opportunity to feel ultimate freedom. A must do "Freefall" Makingtrax not only has found the best company, we have also designed and manufactured our incredible harness system. Making this amazing experience possible for all abilities. Come join us in the sky, falling from 12,000 feet over 200km/hr. The adrenaline rush of a lifetime, to a slow descent having a safe controled canopy landing, absorbing the spectaculer birds eye view.

Our skydiving harness makes landing a breeze. In freefall your legs are harnessed together. Once the parachute opens your knees are pulled to your chest giving you time to enjoy your flight back to earth. When landing you slide in on your extremely experienced Tandem Masters butt, you hardly touch the ground. Tried and tested over and over again by Trax director Jezza as he has an addiction to skydiving. Check out our videos of the harness in action.

So no excuses, contact us today.
