Kris Fade SkyDives with Steve Aoki
One of the best perks of my job is that I get to meet and hang out with so many cool people. Whether it’s a random person at an event or one of my long-term friends, it’s always awesome making connections with people from different walks of life.
This week one of my oldest mates, Steve Aoki, landed in Dubai to perform at Eden Beach Club. The guy is one of the most chilled yet gnarly characters I’ve ever met, so when he came to this amazing city I had to show him a good time. I thought long and hard about what I should do with Steve, but in the end I decided that jumping out of a plane was a good idea.
I honestly hoped that he’d chicken out of it just so I wouldn’t have do it either, but sadly for me he was excited, so down to Skydive Dubai we went for the jump. Thankfully we landed safely and both really enjoyed it, but I’m not so sure I’ll be trying it again any time soon.
Steve’s famous for throwing cake out into the crowd during his DJ sets, so in honour of that tradition I squashed a sponge right into Big Rossi’s face. Luckily for me, Rossi loves the sweet baked goodness so he wasn’t too angry with me about the silly stunt!
