Try to describe skydiving to a non skydiver. 

Whenever someone asks me what it’s like to jump out of aeroplanes, my answer is always the same, even if i could explain it to you explicitly you still wouldn’t have a clue what it’s like…. the rush, the adrenaline, the fear and how you feel when you conquer that fear… it’s impossible to describe. You just have to try it- the only way you will ever really know what it’s like is to DO IT.

How many skydives do you have?

I currently have approximately 250 skydives.

What’s one of your most memorable moments skydiving? 

I find all my jumps are unique and joyful, but jumping onto the beach of Alvor, seeing the Atlantic Ocean in front of you during freefall, and then landing barefoot onto the beach, are always particularly memorable jumps.

Leave us a life lesson from Antonio.

Never ever give up on your dreams, even when everything seems like it’s falling apart, stand up and “fight” for your dreams. The good things in life don’t come easy.

What’s something you’re proud of in your career?

I’m proud off “cutting away” from a “normal” prosperous job to become fully submerged in a skydiving career, that was a life changing moment.
