Friday Freakout: When Parachutes Collide… Almost.

Friday Freakout: When Parachutes Collide… Almost...

Unless you’re into CRW, the purpose of tracking away at break-off is to gain horizontal separation so that you DO NOT collide with your friends on opening (or come close enough that you soil your pants). When in doubt, blame the booties ;) Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Canopy Collision Close Call #138

Friday Freakout: Canopy Collision Close Call #138

There are far too many “near misses” and canopy collision close call videos being sent our way lately. In this case, Sergey and his teammate get a little too close for comfort on a training jump. Please stay safe out there everyone. Life is good… stay alive! Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Close Canopy Collision

Friday Freakout: Close Canopy Collision

Yeah, so you know that whole concept of separation between groups on exit. Well apparently that didn’t quite work on this jump. Not sure how strong the upper winds were or what the previous group was doing on their jump, but this skydiver buzzes another canopy after break off. Yikes. Close call. Watch Video »

It’s rarely a good idea to pull in place, especially when you’re skydiving with newer jumpers. Luckily this canopy collision ends well, and let’s be honest, it’s could’ve been MUCH worse… like these other 100 jump wonders have a hard head-on canopy collision after “break off.” Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Close Call, Near Canopy Collision

Friday Freakout: Close Call, Near Canopy Collision

Just because you’ve never had a close call after break-off, doesn’t mean it can’t happen. This video is a perfect example of why tracking and separation is essential on every skydive. Especially on tracking jumps when it can be even more unclear where to go to get that separation you need. Up the altitude for... Watch Video »

Soooo, a skydiver in this group fell below the formation and instead of getting back up to the formation or watching them until break-off, he just decided to track off in a random direction and hope for the best. Without knowing where Waldo went, the videographer tracks away at break-off and nearly collides in mid-air... Watch Video »

Get Away From Me!

Get Away From Me!

When there are 200 skydivers on a big way record jump, the only thought running through my mind at break-off until landing is, “get away from me!” If you’re looking for video, check out Craig O’Brien’s footage from this 200-way California state formation skydiving record attempt at Skydive Perris.
