Friday Freakout: Skydiver Nearly Breaks Neck

Friday Freakout: Skydiver Nearly Breaks Neck

Ever get slammed by your canopy? WHABAM! If it hasn’t happened to you at least once (yet), you’re doing it wrong. Wait, no. Disregard. This hard opening left Steve Rivello dazed and confused with multiple herniated discs in his neck. I’m not a doctor, but something tells me that’ll really mess up your day. Canopy:... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Parachute Explodes In Half. Aww, Shitty.

Friday Freakout: Parachute Explodes In Half. Aww, ...

Aww, shitty. Don’t you just hate when your parachute explodes in half! I’m not entirely sure why he chopped though. I mean, it’s there, it’s square (sort of), and can probably flare. Wouldn’t you try to land this? (that’s a rhetorical question) Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Dirty Low Pull + PC Fumble = Tree Landing

Friday Freakout: Dirty Low Pull + PC Fumble = Tree...

Who needs a parachute when you can land in trees?! After all, Gary Connery landed his wingsuit without a parachute into cardboard boxes, so what’s the big deal? But seriously, this BASE jumper was lucky to end up where he did — stuck between a rock, a tree and and a hard place. Fumbling your... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: High Bar BASE Jump Goes Horribly Wrong

Friday Freakout: High Bar BASE Jump Goes Horribly ...

Every time I see a BASE jump, I’m always thinking, “You know what this needs… more gymnastics. Particularly, the high bar!” It turns out Norwegian BASE jumper Richard Henriksen had the same thought and did just that. Unfortunately for him, the stunt goes horribly wrong and the high bar structure collapses at the edge of... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Skydive Instructor Hangs From Plane By Seatbelt

Friday Freakout: Skydive Instructor Hangs From Pla...

Seatbelts are a great idea when you’re taking off in a plane. Not so much when you’re exiting a plane. This skydive instructor forgets to unbuckle his seatbelt before exit, and ends up hanging from the plane as his student exits alone on his first (unplanned) solo jump. We all make mistakes, and the key... Watch Video »

WARNING: The majority of this footage is seizure-inducing and may cause your eyes to bleed. We all know GoPro cameras are bomb-proof. Just ask the dude who had a scary head-down premature opening and lost his GoPro from from 10,000ft. But this video takes 1st place in the OMGWTFLMAO department. Not only does his GoPro...

Friday Freakout: Crazy Cliff Strike. Not Once, But TWICE!

Friday Freakout: Crazy Cliff Strike. Not Once, But...

Seeing as this is a BASE jump, it’s a pretty short jump and canopy ride. But try telling that to the BASE jumper after bashing himself into a wall not once, but TWICE! That shit’s gotta hurt. Ouch. Not something we advise trying — ever. But good on ‘em for keeping his cool and (we... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: 3 Parachutes + 1 Skydiver = Nasty CRW Wrap

Friday Freakout: 3 Parachutes + 1 Skydiver = Nasty...

Man, you can never have too much nylon! Too right! And not only does he survive being wrapped up in three canopies (including his reserve), but he steers that mess with his right hand and his left foot to land safely in a field. True story. What a BADASS! Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Pilot Chute Catches On Plane. Watch Your Handles!

Friday Freakout: Pilot Chute Catches On Plane. Wat...

Another visual reminder to watch your handles in the plane! This skydiver’s pilot chute gets caught on the inside of the skyvan door. Luckily it wasn’t a caravan or otter where the parachute can get caught on the tail of the plane, like this guy. Watch your HANDLES! Watch YOUR handles! WATCH YOUR HANDLES! Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Oh-No Hop-n-Pop!

Friday Freakout: Oh-No Hop-n-Pop!

This is pretty much what you don’t want to do on a hop-n-pop. BUT, what she did do right is get a parachute out over her head and landed safely. Primo, numero uno, most important thing. Great. And here are some tips on how to improve: 1) get further forward in the door so you’re... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Skydiver Hits Power Lines... And Survives!

Friday Freakout: Skydiver Hits Power Lines... And ...

You’ve probably seen videos where skydivers get seriously messed up by powerlines. A bad spot, an off landing, a teeny bit of target fixation and BOOM! But for this guy they were the perfect landing spot – he swapped certain death for a giant wedgie and lived to fly another day. I’d say that’s a... Watch Video »
Skydiving Grandma Loses Teeth In Freefall. LMAO.

Skydiving Grandma Loses Teeth In Freefall. LMAO.

I think I remember the commercials… Super Polident? Awesome denture adhesive. Yeah, that’s exactly what this skydiving grandma needed. That, or a tighter smile. Definitely worth the watch, and it’ll give you something to talk about at the water cooler. Silver lining in this one is some brand new pearly whites for Ms. Daisy! Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Close Collision. WTF Was That?!

Friday Freakout: Close Collision. WTF Was That?!

“WTF was that?” That, sir, was a skydiver in freefall buzzing your canopy. This is NOT the way to start learning CRW (canopy relative work). Just saying. Close call indeed, also keeping in mind that objects are closer than they appear with a wide angle lens. Reminds me of the “Canopy Collisions For Dummies” freakout... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Near Impact... "Teach Me To Swoop A Mountain"

Friday Freakout: Near Impact... "Teach Me To Swoop...

This reminds of another video of a skydiver who nearly impacts a mountain in freefall. If this guy wanted to learn to speedfly, all he had to do was ask! Turning a skydive into a mountain run: priceless. For everything else, there’s BASE rigs. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Swooper Crashes Into Plane

Friday Freakout: Swooper Crashes Into Plane

Unfortunately this swooper thought he was at a swoop comp and mistook the plane for a gate. Admittedly, I was disappointed the gate, err, plane didn’t make the “woop-woop” sound… at least so that he thought he made the gates. This is not recommended. And always remember: bones can heal, but the repairs to a... Watch Video »

OMG! This has to be one of the craziest/scariest tandem videos I’ve ever seen. Kinda makes me feel sick just watching it, but luckily this tandem instructor’s negligence ends without casualty. Long story short, this 80 year-old grandma does a tandem skydive for her birthday and nearly falls out of the harness because it’s not... Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: How NOT To Exit An Aircraft!

This exit is just plane painful. Pun intended. Excuse me one moment while I put on my helmet… I was just reminded why we (should) all wear one. I might even consider wearing two after watching this :) Watch Video »

What do you do when your AFF student’s toggle comes unstowed in freefall? Do nothing? Watch it flop around like spaghetti? The instructor in this video had a pretty sweet (slash scary, slash dangerous) save, and managed to unstow the other toggle on deployment. Luckily it worked; the student had a nice on-heading opening and... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: In Your Face Bitches!

Friday Freakout: In Your Face Bitches!

Nothing says “good times” like BASE jumping off a building and doing a high speed face plant into a window. Oops! Window repairs: $500. Shitty breaking glass sound effects: $100. Living to tell the tale: priceless. Watch Video »

“You totally made the gates bro…” Umm, yeah. Totally. Wonder if he made it onto the table with a score of 1 meter. Either way, I’m pretty sure he deserves a nomination to the SoFPiDaRF Hall of inFame – well, only if he downsizes immediately! LOL. Just kidding. Fly safe everyone! Watch Video »
