Friday Freakout: Another Wild Parachute Wrap

Friday Freakout: Another Wild Parachute Wrap

What starts out as a solid 4-stack CRW (canopy relative work) rotation by Team Hypoxia quickly turns into four good friends trying to kill each other in another wild parachute wrap. Surprisingly, this mess only resulted in one cutaway. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: 50+ Canopy Cluster F*ck = WRAP!

Friday Freakout: 50+ Canopy Cluster F*ck = WRAP!

I don’t know anything about paratrooper / military jumps, so I can’t comment on the exit separation (or lack thereof) and the ensuing cluster f*ck of 50+ canopies, canopy wrap and impact. But I do know I would pay ANYTHING to jump out of that plane! Watch Video »

Stupid DOES hurt (a little too much in this case). Videographer Tim gets too close to “Origami Flying Mofo” and a nasty canopy wrap ensues. Origami Mofo cuts away, but Tim’s not done yet — his lines entangle the reserve, which turns into a blue ball of nylon. Tim impacts a cornfield, breaking his pelvis,... Watch Video »

Holy shitballs, Batman! I just soiled myself. Nothin’ like your bridle and d-bag wrapping around the strut of a helicopter to spice up a heli jump. Things get even spicier once the canopy starts to inflate. Scary stuff like this can be avoided with something as simple a gear checks. DOUBLE CHECK YOUR GEAR. If... Watch Video »

What would Simon Bones say if he got his parachute wrapped up in a freefly tube? If you guessed, “wooooo………… wooooo!”, you win a prize (the prize being a clean cutaway, of course). Thanks for sharing, Bones. Not quite sure what the lesson is here, but he sure was relaxed about the situation. For the... Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Close-Up CRW Wrap (POV)

Some things just aren’t meant to go together — like two canopies, two skydivers, and a clusterfuck of lines. Crazy CRW dogs. Watch Video »

It’s not too often you get a 3-in-1 parachute malfunction. It starts off with two guys entangled in lines. Then one of them puts their canopy on spin cycle. And just as they untangle from the mess, he cuts away, ejecting himself back into freefall — which, I must admit, kinda looks like fun considering... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: 2 Parachutes, 1 Nasty Mess.

Friday Freakout: 2 Parachutes, 1 Nasty Mess.

Getting a leg wrapped up in your riser during deployment is definitely up there on the “ooooohhh fuuuucckk” list. Lets just say that the six-hundred-and-something square feet of trailing fabric probably wasn’t making this guy feel all warm and fuzzy inside — but a clean pair of underwear sure would.

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 »

Skydiving is generally a happy place of fresh air, freedom, and fun. Except for the odd occasion when you’re plummeting towards the ground entangled in your pilot chute with a shit-ton of lines everywhere. Then the only thing coursing through your veins is fear, and the only thing running through your mind is “Fuuuuuck!” Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Paratrooper Survives 50-Foot Cutaway!!!

Friday Freakout: Paratrooper Survives 50-Foot Cuta...

Talk about a close call. This has to be one of the LOWEST cutaways I’ve ever seen. Two paratroopers get wrapped up and one of them chops his main less than 50 feet (give or take) above the ground, and luckily his reserve opens 15 feet before impact. Pardon me while I change my underwear! Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: CRW. Clouds. Cutaway.

Friday Freakout: CRW. Clouds. Cutaway.

Doing CRW (canopy relative work) in clouds probably wasn’t the wisest decision these two skydivers ever made. It’s a bit like doing a low hook turn blindfolded. In fact, thinking about it, that may even be safer. Watch Video »

The tie-dye shirt, vintage canopy colors and grainy video quality is a dead giveaway this is old footage of a BASE jumping accident at Bridge Day. What an intense accident to walk away from unharmed! Maybe they should wave off and break away next time? Or not. On a brighter note, check out Lonnie Bissonnette’s... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Surprise!... Canopy Collision

Friday Freakout: Surprise!... Canopy Collision

Losing your helmet in freefall is never fun (watch closely at the 0:03 mark). Neither is a canopy collision/wrap immediately after dumping your main. This video is from the good ‘ol days — 1989 — back when, apparently, tracking away at break-off was only a suggestion. Oh well, nice video. Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: World's Fastest CRW Wrap

Canopy relative work 101: don’t do this. If you’re in to CRW and believe “it’s not a wrap without a cutaway,” this just goes to show you that not all wraps end in a reserve ride… and no lines were harmed in the making of this video. Have you ever had a wrap before, and... Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Crazy Canopy Wrap With Paraglider

Infinity tumbling on a paraglider can be a lot of fun. Especially when you first learn how… until you try one too many tumbles and become gift wrapped in your own canopy. David, you’re one lucky guy; that was quite the mess you were in! Good job on pulling your reserve with your arm caught... Watch Video »
