SA's top skydivers have finished locking horns at another annual state championships held on the weekend.

According to organisers, competitors needed composure at terminal velocity, working delicate manoeuvres while plummeting at speeds of 200-300kph, vying for that podium finish.

This year's championships, hosted at SA's iconic Adelaide Skydiving in Lower Light, was held last Saturday and Sunday, with a training day on Friday.

With six competition categories (including freefall/canopy formations and sports accuracy), top Australian coaches, and skydivers from across the state making the pilgrimage, the event was once again a special part of the skydiving year.

The competition saw everyone from current Australian champions 'Line Burns' retain their crown, as well as first time competitors joining the action and earning medals.

Fifty nine plane loads were sent into the sky with a total of 353 individual skydivers taking the plunge.
