Skydive Top Sites

Here we want to present some of the most interesting, provocative, colorful sites as our "Pearls on the Net". If you have created a unique, funny, informative page, or if you know of such a web page, please send us the URL so we can feature it here!


Bridge Day History

Skydive and BASE veteran Jerry Waters has decided to place in timeline fashion the events of the early history of jumping from the New River Gorge Bridge. As he states on his website, "Much has been forgotten and many people seem confused to how it all started. I will do my best to use both interviews, newspaper clippings, and memory in order to present a factual history".

Jerry has done great so far! On his Bridge website you can read the story about Burton Ervin, who was the first man to ever jump off the New River Gorge Bridge, pictures of Ted Strong's and Robin Heid's tandem jump from the bridge, some very old Bridge photos, as well as many facts and tidbits about the Bridge Day. We can't wait to see what Jerry will come up with next after digging a bit more in his memories. Curious? Go to Jerry's site at

Rodriguez Brothers

Zany can only describe the virtual Tequila-soaked online presence of the (in)famous skydiving clan of Rodriguez Brothers! And what a family! Check out the listing of 'brothers' and you will see some 326 names (from what we can see, some sisters, too!). This prolific 'family' has a colorful skydiving website like no other. Be sure to check out the craziness and before you leave, sign the guestbook and leave a few inspired ramblings. Where's the online application? We want to be a Rodriguez Brother, too!
