Skydiving Car: First Test Drive In Freefall

Skydiving Car: First Test Drive In Freefall

The über talented Steve and Sara Curtis, Greg Gasson and Joe Jennings took the Chevy Sonic on its first skydiving adventure in the Arizona desert. And apparently Chevy’s new Wile E. Coyote option — a massive parachute — works as advertised. I call “shotgun” on the next jump! Watch Video »
World's First Wingsuit Flight Between Buildings in Malaysia

World's First Wingsuit Flight Between Buildings in...

Congrats to Luigi Cani on becoming the first person in the world to fly a wingsuit between the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The buildings officially ranked as the world’s tallest until surpassed by the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. Speaking of “firsts” and the Burj, check out the first world record BASE jump off... View Photo »
I Believe I Can Fly

I Believe I Can Fly

The Skyliners are a group of friends pushing their limits by combining BASE jumping with highlining — a vertiginous mix of climbing, slacklining and tightrope walking. This is the trailer for the feature documentary “I Believe I Can Fly (Flight of the Frenchies)” by Sebastien Montaz-Rosset. I can’t wait to see the full documentary. Stunning... Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Surprise!... Canopy Collision

Friday Freakout: Surprise!... Canopy Collision

Losing your helmet in freefall is never fun (watch closely at the 0:03 mark). Neither is a canopy collision/wrap immediately after dumping your main. This video is from the good ‘ol days — 1989 — back when, apparently, tracking away at break-off was only a suggestion. Oh well, nice video. Watch Video »
Petra-fied Pro Swooping

Petra-fied Pro Swooping

The JPX Petra makes Patrick Boulongne look like a pro on the pond. Oh, wait… he IS a pro. Patrick placed first overall at the 2011 French Canopy Piloting Nationals with his Petra 76. Now check out this video of Patrick swooping the pond, only inches away from his friend’s face. Now that’s trust! Photo... View Photo »
200-Way Record Attempt Over California

200-Way Record Attempt Over California

Following yesterday’s photo of the 200-way exit, this is Craig O’Brien’s video of 200 of the world’s most talented skydivers attempting to break the California state record at Skydive Perris in October 2011 (submission as an official record is still pending). Congrats to everyone on the jump! Craig, that’s some badass backslididing at break-off. Watch Video »
Big Way Traffic: 200-Way Exit

Big Way Traffic: 200-Way Exit

A little traffic is expected on big ways, especially when 200 skydivers exiting 9 aircraft attempt to set a new California state formation skydiving record at Skydive Perris. Landing must have been interesting; kind of like this big way landing traffic, only twice as many skydivers/canopies. This is just a teaser for tomorrow’s video, so... View Photo »
Flying First Class

Flying First Class

Why fly economy when you can fly first class with Babylon Freefly — the real rock ‘n rollas — at Skydive Empuriabrava in Spain. You’d almost think these guys are experienced skydivers or something. Watch Video »
2 Girls, 1 Bridge

2 Girls, 1 Bridge

Usually the old saying, “If all your friends jumped off a bridge, would you do it too?”, is a rhetorical question… unless you’re BASE jumping at Bridge Day, in which case the answer is “hells yeah!” Photo by Andrew Revesz. View Photo »
More Than A Feeling

More Than A Feeling

A juicy edit by Paul Doppler of Team Freestyle from their paragliding adventures in Switzerland, Austria and Italy. Congrats on this stunning piece of cinematography, Paul, and great track choice too! Watch Video »
Old AND Bold BASE Jumper at Bridge Day

Old AND Bold BASE Jumper at Bridge Day

Who says there are no old, bold BASE jumpers? With over 400+ BASE jumpers at Bridge Day this year, you’re bound to see it all, including gorilla and bunny costumes, Mr. Bill, TandemBASE, and an 82-year-old BASE jumper — Donald Cripps from Emerald Coast Skydiving in Alabama.

Wheelchair BASE Jump at Bridge Day

Wheelchair BASE Jump at Bridge Day

After getting a taste of his first wheelchair BASE jump at Bride Day last year, Lonnie Bissonnette of Team FX was psyched to try again at Bridge Day 2011. Unfortunately, due to public safety concerns from the local authorities, he wasn’t allowed to jump with his wheelchair (what changed since last year, Sheriff??). Oh well.... Watch Video »
Unofficial Vertical Wingsuit Formation Record

Unofficial Vertical Wingsuit Formation Record

This was the vertical wingsuit record attempt at Skydive Carolina in September 2011. Although it was the largest vertical wingsuit formation flown so far, it’s an unofficial record because the USPA doesn’t have a category for vertical formations yet. Photo by Richard Schneider. View Photo »

Friday Freakout: Synchronized Swooping Fail

A brilliant display of synchronized swooping. “Just flare when I flare… biff when I biff.” Great team work guys; real friends stick together to the very end. Watch Video »

Red Bull Air Force at Bridge Day 2011

What do you get when you put 180,000 spectators and 400 BASE jumpers on a massive bridge? Bridge Day 2011, and what would Bridge Day be without Othar, Charles, JT and Santa of the Red Bull Air Force entertaining the masses. Also, TandemBASE was available for the first time at Bridge Day 2011 in its... Watch Video »

The Matrix: Freefly Edition

Although this isn’t true time-lapse photography like The Matrix: Swooping or The Swooping Matrix: Reloaded shots, it’s a very cool and creative composite of Cristian Vasari freeflying at Fly Zone Fermo in Italy. Photo by Roberto Caratella. View Photo »
Best Idea Ever… Swoop 'n Slide

Best Idea Ever… Swoop 'n Slide

No, really! Best. Idea. Ever. What better way to cool off on a hot summer’s day at Skydive Arizona than to swoop a 200-foot slip and slide. Just another day at the office for Niklas Daniel of AXIS Flight School — the same guy responsible for setting his parachute on fire and skydiving with a... Watch Video »

The Upskirt View of a Canopy Flock

All you gear sluts out there surely remember the rad skull and crossbones SkyArt canopy I posted back in September. Well here’s another upskirt view of Team Off Track’s sexy SkyArt canopies from Icarus Canopies (by NZ Aerosports). The canopy design competition ends tomorrow (October 19th)… so hurry up and submit your design on Icarus’... View Photo »
