Highlining BASE Stunt

Highlining BASE Stunt

A shot from Sebastien Montaz’s brilliant documentary, I Believe I Can Fly, about BASE jumping and highlining. If you haven’t seen the trailer yet, I highly recommend you check it out here. View Photo »
What It's All About

What It's All About

No, this isn’t a trailer for another one of Guy Ritchie’s blockbuster movies. It’s Team Polte’s year-end video. This is what skydiving is all about… fun times and blue skies (and a great edit always helps). This is definitely up there with my favorite 2011 year-end video from STF 4Loko, which I’ve watched at least... Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Low Pull. Two-Out. Roof Landing. Darwin Award.

Friday Freakout: Low Pull. Two-Out. Roof Landing. ...

What do you get when a skydiver with only 115 jumps decides to use a camera and impress a girl? A video with too many mistakes to mention. After everything that goes wrong, at least he remembers to collapse his slider, right?! He’s lucky all this cost was a reserve pack job and a new... Watch Video »
Speedflying Rockstar

Speedflying Rockstar

GoPro Bomb Squad rockstar Neil Amonson playing with his new GoPro HERO2 on a speedflying session. Rather than shoot 3D video, Neil’s using the 3D housing to get video and time-lapse photos at the same time. Brilliant! So if you have a few GoPros just lying around, give that a try.

Fall Sessions: Shadow Play

Fall Sessions: Shadow Play

You know you’re pushing the limits of wingsuit proximity flying when you can high-five your own shadow. Then again, that’s not so hard. I just high-fived my own shadow, but it was against the wall with the help of my desk lamp. Watch Video »
That's My Oh Face, Again

That's My Oh Face, Again

The classic “oh face” is back, and it’s a worthy contender against the original “oh face.” They’re both pretty funny. Which one do you like best? Photo by Thayer Healey. View Photo »
Swooping The Pond... With A Hang Glider?!

Swooping The Pond... With A Hang Glider?!

Ok, so this isn’t a skydiving or BASE jumping video, and it isn’t exactly a pond either. But it was too good not to share. Have you ever seen a hang glider swoop over water like this? I think this guy should challenge Nick Batsch and his JPX Petra to a distance duel. Watch Video »
Piggyback BASE Exit

Piggyback BASE Exit

The pre-exit photo wasn’t too reassuring, but it looks like Lonnie Bissonnette’s piggyback BASE exit went according to plan. As a paraplegic, Lonnie doesn’t let anything get in his way. Have you seen his wheelchair BASE jump at Bride Day? Did I mention his middle name is Badass? You truly are an inspiration to us... View Photo »
Skydiving 30,000 Feet Over Mount Everest

Skydiving 30,000 Feet Over Mount Everest

Imagine skydiving 30,000 feet over Mount Everest and landing on the highest dropzone in the world, Everest Skydive — 12,350 feet above ground level, the altitude where most of us begin our skydive. Why pay $50,000 and work up a sweat to climb Mount Everest when you can spend half that amount to hitch a... Watch Video »

World's First Ski-BASE Jump Off The Matterhorn

World's First Ski-BASE Jump Off The Matterhorn

In episode 4 of the Super Frenchie Diaries, Matthias Giraud pulls off the world’s first ski-BASE jump on the Matterhorn in the Pennine Alps, Switzerland. He was lucky enough to avoid the same disaster that cost the late Shane McConkey his life — losing a ski on exit. But Matthias likes a little excitement. After... Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Wingsuit Strikes Cliff

Friday Freakout: Wingsuit Strikes Cliff

Considering the alternatives, this BASE jumper couldn’t have asked for a better outcome. Well, aside from not hitting the cliff at all. If you’re going to walk, err, fly away from a cliff strike without a scratch, the least you can do is pack your rig while waiting for air rescue and do a heli... Watch Video »
Wingsuit Fly-By Over The Famous Hollywood Sign

Wingsuit Fly-By Over The Famous Hollywood Sign

After lots of red tape, Luke Aikins of the Red Bull Air Force was finally able to pull off a project he’s been working on — a wingsuit fly-by over the famous Hollywood Sign landmark in Los Angeles. Well done guys! I can’t wait to see the video footage from Airborne Images. Photo by Andy... View Photo »
Chinese Scenes

Chinese Scenes

Matt Gerdes takes us on a ride in his wingsuit down some stunning lines in China, and it’s just as awesome as you’d expect. This is the same event where Jeb Corliss made history as the first person to fly a wingsuit through a mountain in China. For more wingsuit proximity flying from Matt, check... Watch Video »
Get Away From Me!

Get Away From Me!

When there are 200 skydivers on a big way record jump, the only thought running through my mind at break-off until landing is, “get away from me!” If you’re looking for video, check out Craig O’Brien’s footage from this 200-way California state formation skydiving record attempt at Skydive Perris.

The Jetman himself, Yves Rossy, took the stage at a recent TED Talks to share a powerful short film about his experience and accomplishments in his jet-powered wing. With 4 small turbine engines strapped to his back and a max speed of nearly 190 MPH (approx. 300 km/h), how could Yves not smile from ear... Watch Video »
