She Can Fly: Hot Air Ballon Fly-By

She Can Fly: Hot Air Ballon Fly-By

There’s nothing hotter than a hot French woman flying by a hot air balloon in a wingsuit. Except maybe wearing a wingsuit on a hot day. Following the “I Believe I Can Fly” documentary about highlining and BASE jumping, director Sebastien Montaz-Rosset just finished shooting this documentary about professional female BASE jumper Géraldine Fasnacht.

Bodysurfin' at Spaceland

Antonio Arias docking David Israd, dropknee style, on his 800th jump at Skydive Spaceland in Houston, Texas. Happy 800th David! This reminds me of this bodysurfing exit at Skydive Elsinore. View Photo »
Friday Freakout: Angry Birds vs. Paraglider

Friday Freakout: Angry Birds vs. Paraglider

Don’t you hate it when you’re paragliding through the Indian Himalayas and a couple of real-life angry birds come along and mess your shit up? I sure do. But this Ruskie handles it like a champ. After a reserve ride and hard landing, all is well. Even the “angry bird” survives. Watch Video »

Dancing On Clouds

Jessica Fragoso of Team Wonderland dancing on the clouds for her 300th jump at Skydive The Ranch in New York. Happy 300th Jessica. Please send some beer our way. Photo by Victor “BAM” Howard. This pic reminds me of Natanie Cogburn standing on top of the world. View Photo »
Fly Like Brick: Aerobatic Wingsuit Flying

Fly Like Brick: Aerobatic Wingsuit Flying

Aerobatic wingsuit flying is kinda like figure skating. Except it’s way more badass with a wingsuit in the sky instead of skates and glitter. Never mind. It’s nothing like figure skating. Congrats to Jarno Cordia and Alejandro Lopez Arce of team Fly Like Brick — a wingsuit skydiving team — for taking 1st place at... Watch Video »

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 »

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 »
