sky diving & surfing... the fake kind.

Posted on: 11.07.2012

the pictures are horrible quality because they were screen shot from the video we got. these images just don't do the chaos justice that is going on in there, haha.

I may have possibly been complaining to Trevor latley about how I hate law school, how I am over it, and sick and tired of him studying all the time because we never get to hang out.

Granted we have made a big effort to schedule more planned dates together, and it has been fun, but I guess I am a greedy wife who wants even more time :)

Well Trevor must have been listening because last week he told me had a surprise for me, and asked if I could get part of my work day off on Friday. A SURPRISE?! I love a good surprise, and of course I have to try and figure it out because that is my nature. All week I was trying to guess what it was but I couldn't figure it out.

Once I heard we were headed up to Ogden I knew what it had to be. Trevor and I had talked about trying out the indoor skydiving they have up there and how we wanted to try it sometime. I mean why else would we be driving to Ogden?
(those not from Utah - Ogden is a city just north of Salt Lake, there is no real reason to go there unless you know someone - which we don't ha)

I was so excited when I was right :) Indoor Skydiving?! I was pretty stoked!

It was fun to take off work, school, life and do something fun together :) I love that Trevor had picked up on me wanting to spend more time with him and made the effort to plan a surprise for me. Love that man.

I wasn't nervous until I got there and saw the people doing it. It was a pretty strange experience having 160 mile winds blasting you up so you are floating. Odd is about the only word I can think of to describe it, cool, but odd. Trevor and I both agreed it was such a foreign concept and you spend so much time thinking about how to place your body etc. it was hard for us to say it was "super fun." It was definitely exciting though and I think it could get more enjoyable the more you do it. It is something everyone should experience, the whole idea of floating!

At one point the instructor grabbed me and flung me around in circles up and down the tube with him. WOWZA! Spit was flying out of my mouth, and I was having a mild freak out but enjoying it all at the same time. It was just overall an interesting experience! haha

wipe ouuuttttt!

After the indoor skydiving we hit up the flowrider for an hour. It was a total BLAST! It was much easier to get into because waves is something Trevor and I both have experienced before. I wont lie though, the wave was INTENSE! At one point I wiped out and wasn't expecting it to literally pick me up and throw me over the top of the whole wave contraption... yeah I may have bruised my hip.

To say we woke up sore was an understatement, but it was such a fun date night! We topped the night off with dinner with friends. Having some time off and doing something fun together and then seeing our friends, it just made for a great day. We don't get a lot of time to do stuff like that together, and it was just really really nice :) thanks for planning such a great day Trevor!

39 little notes:

  1. This is SO cool! Best spontaneous date ever :) Funny enough the wave looks scarier than the indoor sky diving to me, but both totally worth it! Would love to do this someday.

    1. Like I said, the sky diving doesn't look as intimidating because you can't look at it in pictures and get an idea of what it is like in there, it is so intense!!! Haha

  5. Wow! That sounds like an awesome date! I always wondered what that indoor skydiving was like! How do they get you down? Do they just turn off the air and you fall down?

  10. What a fun day date!!! Glad you two enjoyed it! I went indoor skydiving last summer and oh.my.gracious it IS so much harder than you would think! I was so nervous, and to top it off, there were Army parachuters practicing in the tunnel before it was our time. They were so cool to watch but wow... it was amazing what they could do compared to what I could barely do! hah. As for the surfing wave, I would be scared to try that!

  22. I've grown up surfing, but that fake wave is soooo hard!! We did it at an indoor water park once, and I finally gave up. Of course, there were about 10 10 year old boys waiting in line, I was the only girl, and I kept wiping out. Plus, when we first got there, the instructor told us about his buddy that wiped out and broke his nose. Awesome. Props to you guys - that thing is hard!!!
