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.

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

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 »

Mike Holmes survived a nasty double malfunction at Taupo Tandem Skydiving in New Zealand, making a nauseating thud as he hit the ground at 70+ MPH. His intense footage aired on the Today Show shortly after his accident in December 2006. I’m not sure that luckily landing in a plump patch of blackberry bushes helped... Watch Video »

Soul Flyers' Inverted World

A brilliant BASE jumping shot of Fred Fugen and Vince Reffet of the Soul Flyers, along with Håvard Flaat and Kristian Moxnes as they track away after a head down carve. This pic doesn’t do freefly-BASE much justice until you watch episode 2 and episode 3 of the Freefly-BASE Series by Soul Flyers. View Photo »

Rollerblades + BASE Jumping = Roller-BASE

Rollerblades + BASE Jumping = Roller-BASE

So you’ve seen an insane avalanche ski-BASE jump by Matthias Giraud, skydiving in a kayak (aka skyaking) by Miles Daisher, and skydiving with roller skates by Freakfly. But what about roller-BASE… BASE Jumping with rollerblades? That’s a first for me, and I’m lovin’ it! Why didn’t I think of that? Watch Video »
