In Soviet Russia, ground swoops you! For those of you paying attention, don’t do this! Low hook turn, bad. Broken ankle, bad. Teaching yourself to swoop, bad. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Swooping Fails... Many Fails.

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 »

Friday Freakout: Sttttrike! Swooper Hits Spectator...

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 »

Hiiii-yah! Swoop Karate Kick Board Breaking

Ever wanted to swoop in and karate chop a board in front of cheering fans?

Friday Freakout: Failed Swoop, Skydiver Pounds Int...

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 »

Following his first attempt at swooping over the Hard Rock Hotel, Curt Bartholomew of team Alter Ego dialed in a new line through the pool bar, and it’s tight!

Skyscraper Swooping: Flying Between Buildings

This isn’t something you see very often, but Jeff Provenzano of the Red Bull Air Force had another opportunity to fly his parachute around some massive buildings in Dubai. Oh, and he lands on the side of a highway! No big deal. Now check out this footage from Jeffro’s first urban swooping project in Dubai. Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Swooper Misses Pond, Hard Landing

Skipping off the pond isn’t the best way to win a swoop comp, but this guy earns extra style points for picking up a wind blade along the way. Watch Video »
No Pond? No Problem. Swoop The Ditch.

No Pond? No Problem. Swoop The Ditch.

While we couldn’t get everyone a pond at their local DZ for Christmas, we can provide swooping inspiration from Alex Cashman and share his short video of a little JVX action on a ditch. Stick around for the swooper POV. Aside from the pond, what else have you swooped over/under/between? Watch Video »

PD Tveir: The League of Extraordinary Swoopers

In an effort to keep things new and fresh, Performance Designs came up with “PD Tveir” for their PRO pilots — a challenging and creative new format that was the first complete two-way swoop comp of its kind.

Perfection: Swooping With Alter Ego

A standup landing in the box… no big deal. Just another day at the office for Curt Bartholomew of team Alter Ego. If this is Curt’s idea of playing around at the pond, it’s no surprise he takes the podium at swoop comps. That was just a tease and you want more, don’t you? Check... Watch Video »

Swoopstyle: Walking On Water

It would be nice if Red Bull actually gave you wings and you could walk on water. It’s also nice to see that members of the Red Bull Skydive Team are human too; that they can’t walk on water ALL the time. Looks like they were having tons-o-fun swooping the pond, err, lake in Wolfgangsee,... Watch Video »
