How do I sign up?

Signing up is nice, easy and free! Click the "SIGN UP" button, fill in your details and start fundraising! If you are 18 years of age you will need a parent or guardian to sign the Under 18 Letter of Permission on your behalf. This will be sent to you by the skydive operator at the time you make your booking. 

If you have signed up [now or in the past] for another event [ such as Blue September] you will already be in system [based on your email], so click on the Already Have An Account tab. Forgotten your password? Click Forgotten Your Password and do a reset. 

How do I get into my account?

Can't log in? No good! It's easy to reset your password though. Just head to the login page and click "Forgot your password?". It'll send you an email, then you'll be on your way. If you didn't receive the email make sure you check your junk or spam folder. It might take a few minutes to arrive.

How do I receive donations?

If it's your first time fundraising, asking for donations can be daunting. But don't be scared, friends and family want to support you! Just explain what you're doing and why you're doing it, then ask. If you don't get any donations the first time, you can always ask again later. See FAQ Can I share my page with family and friends? for instructions on how to share your page. 

How do I thank my donors?

Getting donations is exciting, but make sure you say thanks! You can thank your donors by logging into your fundraising dashboard, scrolling down to your donation feed, and clicking the little heart icon. Write a message, and we'll send it to your donor on your behalf.

Where and when can I do my skydive?

Is there an age restriction?

There is no age restriction, however if you are under 18 years of age, you will need a parent or guardian to sign a waiver form which will be supplied by the skydive operator when you make your booking. 

NZone Skydive and Skydive Wanaka state:

The ability for a child to jump is determined by their age (6 years and over), weight, size and how the harness fits. The minimum weight is 30kg/66lbs and minimum height 1.2m/47.2inches. All passengers must fit securely into the harness. Children 12 years and under are permitted to skydive from a maximum height of 9,000 feet. 

Is there a weight restriction?

To be eligbile to enter, participants must weigh over 30kg (to ensure they fit safely into the harness). The respective skydive comanies operate weight restrictions for tandem skydives, as outlined below. 

Please note, not all instructors are willing to take passengers exceeding these weights and the permission to do so is at the discretion of the instructor on the day. 

  • Skydive Wanaka and NZone Skydive:95kg*
  • Skydive Auckland: 100kg

*If permission is granted the absolute maximum weight is 115kg. 

If this is you and you are able to jump, you will be liable to pay any additional fee (max $50) direct to the skydive operator. If in doubt, contact us before signing up.
