Project Orange: First-Ever CRW Canopy Fly Through

Project Orange: First-Ever CRW Canopy Fly Through

During Performance Designs’ Project Orange event at Z-Hills in October 2013, these CRW dawgs were able to accomplish something no one has ever done before. After building a 12-way formation and punching out the center of it, PDFT’s Ian Bobo flew his Peregrine through the formation. Behind this CRW formation is over 100 years of... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Swoop. Bounce. Crash. Fail.

Friday Freakout: Swoop. Bounce. Crash. Fail.

Ouch! This looks like it hurt, but could’ve ended a lot worse. There were a number of contributing factors, namely staying on his brakes to let larger canopies land first and trusting his rears too long when he realized he was too low. Other than that (and the resulting bounce)… nice swoop :p When in... Watch Video »

Phew… only broken ribs, a concussion, a misplaced shoe, a missing sock, and a missed competition. Saied went against everyone’s advice and jumped in crappy conditions after a recent downsize, driven by the anxiousness to be ready for a competition in 3 days. So much for that. Glad we can all learn from his non-fatal... Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Bouncy, Bouncy, Broken Leg.

Well this doesn’t go quite as planned. I’m no doctor, but I think his broken leg takes priority over his bruised ego. Ok, now let’s go eat some birthday cake kids! Watch Video »
Skydiver Drop-Kicks Baseball Player On Demo Jump

Skydiver Drop-Kicks Baseball Player On Demo Jump

Getting kicked in the head probably isn’t the best way to start a baseball game. Nor is drop-kicking a baseball player the best way to end your skydive. It’s a pretty big field. Skydiver: 0, Baseball Player: 0. Watch Video »

Nothing better than jumping into a tight space with a lot of spectators to get your blood pumpin’ and ego soarin’, AMIRIGHT? The cheering! The kids! The autographs! The free drinks! It’s all glitz and glamor when you land that beautiful nylon wing — unless you’re this character, of course. Watch as this jumper slides... Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Swooping Fails... Many Fails.

“This is Sparta SoFPiDaRF!” Pull them strings, people. It’s a good thing these guys were swooping over water, cuz the ground wouldn’t have been so friendly. Ouch. Take the time to learn swooping safely — seriously. Oooor just trust your rears and never give up the gates. Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Parachute Stalls At 250 Feet. Yow...

It’s never fun when you’re close to the ground and your parachute is still there but suddenly not square — especially around 250 feet! However, no real freakout from this skydiver, but I’d wonder what was going on in his head. Safe landing in the end, but yeah, yowsah! ~Mel Watch Video »

Sttttrike! A swooper takes out a “spectator” (for lack of a better term) at a respectable speed. Why wasn’t she watching?? No one can see how awesome you are if they’re not watching. Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Swooper Bounces, Goes Boom.

The thing with gravity is that she just can’t wait to introduce you to her friend — the ground. You know how hard it is to be introduced to new people, too fast. It’s hard. Very hard. Watch Video »

Remember the SoFPiDaRF rules, people: safety third! At first I thought this is what a pond swoop was supposed to look like. Turns out I was wrong. If only he was half a second earlier, it would’ve been an epic swoop! Ok, more like 4 seconds. D’you see what happens when you use toggles? :p Watch Video »
