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 »

Head Down Happiness

Head Down Happiness

Mike, Bill and Dave flying a head down exit out of the caravan at Skydive Burnaby in Wainfleet, Ontario. This reminds me of the head down hottie pic I posted last month. Photo via Bill Ackford. What’s your favorite style of skydiving or BASE jumping that puts a smile on your face? 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 »

Soul Flyers' Inverted World

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 »

S.A.F.E = Stupid And F**king Extreme

What could possibly go wrong? Anthony White — a newbie to big wall BASE jumping, with a hangover — takes Lonnie Bissonnette — a paraplegic — for a ride on a big wall BASE jump in Norway. Next time, I want to see you do this blindfolded Anthony! Photo via Lonnie Bissonnette. View Photo »
Pilots of the Caribbean

Pilots of the Caribbean

This SkyArt canopy was part of the Icarus Canopies (by NZ Aerosports) 2011 Summer Photo Competition. Nothing says “good luck” like looking up at skull and crossbones before swooping. Photo by Gatsby Rynbout. If you were to get a SkyArt canopy from NZ Aerosports, what design would it be? View Photo »
Ski-BASE Jump: Escaping An Avalanche

Ski-BASE Jump: Escaping An Avalanche

Matthias “Super Frenchie” Giraud is hardcore. This is the aftermath from his insane avalanche ski-BASE jump in the French Alps. If you haven’t already seen the ski-BASE jump avalanche video, stop reading and watch it right now! Did I mention it’s insane? View Photo »

Will Swoop For Beer

Filip Morén swooping for beer at Skydive Näsinge in Sweden. If this is Filip’s first time swooping for beer, then that’s more free beer! Oh, the vicious cycle. Photo by Trond R. Teigen. What do you think: did he catch it or drop it? View Photo »
