Although going skydiving is sure to leave you with memories to last a lifetime (some may be good, some not so good), nothing says “I’ve been skydiving and lived to tell about it” like a t-shirt from the skydiving adventure. Sure, you could take the easy way out and just buy the shirt, and make people think you’ve experienced the ultimate thrill of jumping from a plane, but how shameful is that? If you’re going to wear the t-shirt, then you better have one heck of a great story to back it up. (Other than “I bought it off eBay.”)
Skydiving t-shirts come in many different styles and sayings. If you’ve completed this fearful yet gratifying experience, then reward yourself by choosing something bold and even humorous. Avoid the shirts that say, “I went skydiving and all I got was this t-shirt to prove it.” That’s boring – and frankly, it’s a bit unbelievable. It’s been done many times before, so do something different! And if you have survived skydiving, then let everyone know not just by your t-shirt. Consider buying auto tags, posters, bumper stickers, or coffee mugs. What a great conversation starter those would be!
A skydiving shop in Georgia called US Airsports Network has many t-shirts that are absolutely bold and original. You’re not likely to find these shirts anywhere else and they are sure to get people to ask you about your experience. You will find a wide variety of t-shirts with different slogans, such as “If at first you don’t succeed, skydiving isn’t for you,” and “Skydiving: Speed Limit 120 mph”. Along with t-shirts, you will also find an assortment of skydiving souvenirs to add to your collection. You’ll find mugs, mouse pads, bumper stickers, and key chains all that have original skydiving slogans and pictures.
Skywatch Gallery in Florida has the best assortment of colorful skydiving t-shirts. One shirt available has an actual picture of a person skydiving that says, “Skydiving: The Art of Falling on Your Face Gracefully.” This particular shop has over forty different styles to choose from with prices ranging from $15 and up. The shop also has original skydiving posters and auto tags available for sale.
Perhaps you have completed a military course in skydiving. This is referred to as “Basic Airborne Course” and is offered at Ft. Benning, Georgia. If you’ve successfully completed this course, you certainly don’t need a t-shirt to tell about it. Each graduate of this course receives airborne wings to proudly display on your uniform. But, if you want a t-shirt to advertise your accomplishment, then you can find a wide variety of t-shirts on base at Ft. Benning or a search of the internet will provide you with military style airborne shirts.
No matter how or when you completed your skydiving adventure, it’s never too late to buy a t-shirt to add to your memory of jumping. Most skydiving facilities will provide you with a free t-shirt at the completion of your jump, but keep in mind there are always many choices available to commemorate your unforgettable experience.
