Get plenty of rest the night before, eat something a few hours before your actual suspension, and get in a good headspace. Trust in your facilitator (what I mean by this is dont waste a lot of energy worrying about falling or failures), and keep your mind focused on getting through it. Have a good friend or multiple friends with you that will be a positive influence. There will be a time where your head will try to talk you out of it. PUSH PAST IT!!

ENJOY YOUR FLIGHT!!

^^^ What Mike said.  Who was by the way (with his team) the "facilitator" of my first beautiful flight.

The only thing that I'd add to Mike's post is to expect nothing. Walk in with no expectations... the only time I forgot that wonderful piece of advice was the only time I wasn't off the ground for more than a few minutes.

standingtyping is correct. A lot of people come into their suspension expecting something or seeking a specific outcome. This is a quote and not mine, "You will rarely get what you wanted from a suspension, but you will always get what you needed"

I agree with everything said already.

I just want to add... getting to know your team before you suspend is great. I find that being really comfortable with the people around you is helpful, and adds something to the experience.

I'm not a pro, but from what I've seen/experienced...

A lot of people say that suicides or superman suspensions are good for beginners.

BUT...

People start with LOTS of different styles of suspension. Don't feel like you are limited to something that is for "beginners." Even with my limited experience, I've seen people do notoriously difficult suspensions their first time up and rock it out.

Your suspension is about YOU. Do what sounds fun to YOU. Don't focus too much on what is expected of you.
