Fly The Golden Sky

There’s not much to say… other than I wish I was flying in this golden sky with these skydivers. Photo by Trond R. Teigen. When and where was your most memorable sunset jump? View Photo »
Friday Freakout: Parachute Catches Fire, Goes BOOM!

Friday Freakout: Parachute Catches Fire, Goes BOOM...

Legendary skydive cinematographer Joe Jennings was asked to coordinate a burning parachute stunt for a music video. Normally they soak the parachute in gasoline and build an ignition switch. But the first attempt didn’t work, so they added gun powder and closed off the front cells to prevent the fuel from drying out too quickly.... Watch Video »

GoPro Photo of the Day: Sunset Tracking

Skydiving, sunsets and wingsuits are the perfect combination for great photos, which is why this pic was selected as GoPro’s “photo of the day” a while back. Photo by Greg Boban, founder and Chief Test Dummy at Delta Gear. View Photo »
Amazing Collection: The Art of Flight

Amazing Collection: The Art of Flight

This is an oldie but a goodie released earlier this year by Phoenix-Fly called “The Need 4 Speed: The Art of Flight.” It’s a collection of proximity wingsuit flying footage during the 2009/2010 season by a group of talented wingsuit BASE jumpers, including Jokke Sommer, Robert Pecnik, Dominik Loyen, and the late Mirko Schmidt and...

Dizzying 1080 Degree Swoop

Dizzying 1080 Degree Swoop

Gettin’ dizzy just watching this skydiver crank out a 1080 degree hook turn while swooping. This reminds me of Nick Batsch’s hook turns on a 2.97 wingload when he was testing the JPX Petra 69 prototype from Icarus Canopies. Watch Video »

Remember the original The Matrix: Swooping pic I posted a few months ago? Well here’s a similar time-lapse shot of Max “Lovestoswoop” Krampe swooping his Icarus VX104, only this time from a different angle. Photo by Philip Be.

The Sky Is Our Playground

The Sky Is Our Playground

The sky is a playground for us skydivers… especially when it looks like this. David Costa, Marco Tiezzi and Gigliola Borgnis were having a little fun in their playground on this atmonauti jump.

He did it! The fearless Jeb Corliss made history on September 24, 2011 as the first person to fly a wingsuit through Tianmen Hole — an actual hole through a mountain — in Hunan Province, China. Jeb jumped from a helicopter 6,500 feet above the mountain before flying through the 360-foot-tall, 96-foot-wide, 260-foot-long hole in... Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: GoPro Camera Catches On Reserve H...

Don’t get me wrong, I love GoPro! But GoPro cameras and metal handles don’t play nice with each other — especially when freeflying. Yet another reminder to watch those GoPros and protect your handles. On the bright side, at least she didn’t lose her reserve handle. What’s your take on GoPros and/or metal handles? Watch Video »
Taking The Leap

Taking The Leap

Sacrebleu! A stunning overhead shot of Matthias Giraud as he counts down before taking the leap off an exit point on Mount Baring. I’m sure you remember Matthias, also known as Super Frenchie — the crazy Frenchman who escaped an avalanche while ski-BASE jumping in the French Alps. He’s 1 part French, 2 parts badass. View Photo »

No Pond? Swoop The Puddle!

No Pond? Swoop The Puddle!

As skydivers, we usually don’t like rainy days… unless your DZ doesn’t have a pond to swoop. Then you pray for rain and swoop the puddle(s) once the clouds clear. This was another entry in Icarus Canopies’ Summer Photo Competition. Photo by Stephanie Schwarz. View Photo »

Experience Zero Gravity

Following the release of Experience Human Flight, this is the second chapter in the Experience Series from design studio Betty Wants In. Chas Mackinnon from BWI says, “Most skydiving videos are edited with fast cuts and set to up-tempo music… we wanted to explore the other end of the spectrum.” This is, by far, some... Watch Video »
