    Hello Peter!
    While I was surfing the internet, I accidentaly found your website. There are some interesting informations.
    I think that skydiving must be fantastic. Itís like flying, isnít it?
    Would you mind to answer some questions?
    First of all, I would like to know if everyone can go skydiving. What are the skills I need to go skydiving?
    And additionally itíd be interesting to how long you have been doing this activity.

    By the way, I also really enjoy biking even if itís not a mountain bike.
    I donít do as much sport as you do but I hope Iíll find the time to do.

    Have a nice day,
    Jay.

    The gerund is after "mind", not "would".

    The gerund form is normally used after "would you mind".

    Please stop using home-made emoticons. If you want to insert a smiley, click on and choose from those available.

    You can certainly use a gerund after 'would you mind'. In fact, 'Would you mind to answer?' is wrong.
