Remember that stadium demo jump at Eden Park that didn’t quite go according to plan? Well here’s POV footage of what that turbulent downwind landing looked like, which resulted in this guy getting femured. Ouch! Watch Video »

Demo Jump Fail... Or Student Landing Win?

Demo Jump Fail... Or Student Landing Win?

I’m a bit confused. Was this a botched demo jump or did 5 students land off?? Regardless, would’ve been nice to see at least one of them stand it up… even with the turbulence and downwind landing :p 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.

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.

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 »
Friday Freakout: Swoop Gone Wrong. Stupid Hurts.

Friday Freakout: Swoop Gone Wrong. Stupid Hurts.

Same turn, same place, same height. Or so he thought. A great comparison of a swoop gone wrong and a swoop gone right. Stupid hurts, but those same mistakes can keep us alive if they teach us something. Live and learn everyone! Watch Video »
