About The Project
Founded in 1998 by a pair of optimistic young mates, Skydive Australia has grown in every way since its humble beginnings on a beachfront in Wollongong. Starting with just one single-engined aircraft, they quickly evolved into a well-known company and now boast 14 drop zones across Australia. The Hopscotch team was brought on board to execute a sharp new website to match their adventurous and lively brand persona. The result was a huge hit.
Skydive Australia’s site was ageing. They were requiring a fresh updated look with some key requirements. Firstly, obviously it had to be easy to navigate and increase sales. Secondly the website had to be blazing quick as we all know seconds in load times are potentially lost customers. Finally the website had to be easy for the Skydive team to edit, without the risk of large errors.
To achieve all these requirements, Hopscotch Digital made a custom made WordPress theme. The theme was cut-back and as light as possible to ensure load times were minimised. We used minimal plugins and made most small features (such as popups) ourselves as again a way to minimise the amount of plugins required.

Website Design & Development
When designing the Skydive Australia website, we wanted to create something unique that gives the user a sense of excitement as well as assisting users along the booking process.
We achieved this with a solid use of video and imagery that really encapsulates the Skydive Australia experience. We want users to come to the website and get excited about Skydiving!
