Friday Freakout: Premature Opening, Too Close For Comfort

Friday Freakout: Premature Opening, Too Close For ...

You know a premature opening is too close for comfort when the canopy hits you in the face while it’s opening. This is the type of stuff that can happen when you funnel a 12-way belly jump. Lesson learned… stick to freeflying (kidding, kidding). Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: New Game - Dodge The Opening Parachute!

Friday Freakout: New Game - Dodge The Opening Para...

Aside from the Phil Collins remix, not much happens during this skydive… until it’s time to pull. Dodge the opening parachute is the name of this game. Many different levels on what was supposed to be a 4-way. Things to consider next time: if you go low, track away like a mofo; and, don’t pitch... 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 »
Friday Freakout: Canopy Collision - Camera Guy vs. 48 Jump Wonder

Friday Freakout: Canopy Collision - Camera Guy vs....

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: Low Clouds, No Outs, and Power Lines! Surprise!

Friday Freakout: Low Clouds, No Outs, and Power Li...

As a skydiver, chances are you’ve probably jumped through clouds (never on purpose, of course). But here’s the thing about clouds, those bad boys can be dirty low and really thick sometimes. This video is filled with all kinds of lessons. Clouds, horrible selection of outs, power lines, and object fixation, OH MY! Watch Video »
Crazy BASE Jump From 100 Feet!

Crazy BASE Jump From 100 Feet!

Crazy is as crazy does. A BASE jump from 100 feet? No thanks. Click ‘LIKE’ if you think a belly flop into a plastic kiddie pool from the same height would’ve been just as entertaining. Watch Video »
Awesome Swoop... Right Into A Fence!

Awesome Swoop... Right Into A Fence!

It’s all fun and games until you swoop your Scirocco 68 into a fence. Close call for Yuri Garmashov. Now who put that fence there? That’s just rude. Watch Video »
Wingsuit Flyby Skims Hikers. Now THIS Is Proximity Flying!

Wingsuit Flyby Skims Hikers. Now THIS Is Proximity...

Now THIS is what I call wingsuit proximity flying. During Extreme Sports Week 2013 in Voss, some friends hiked half way up into the “V” in Gudvangen to film a wingsuit flyby. Sick footage! Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Skydiver Passes Out, Wakes Up Seconds Before Impact!!!

Friday Freakout: Skydiver Passes Out, Wakes Up Sec...

Not entirely sure what happened here, but it looks like this skydiver passed out shortly after exit, then woke up and deployed only seconds before impact. And his buddy had quite the hard landing as a result of his low pull too. Anyone else have an explanation for this? Or was this hypoxia or an... 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 »
Friday Freakout: Tracking Over A Plane In Freefall

Friday Freakout: Tracking Over A Plane In Freefall

I’d say tracking away at break-off and seeing another plane in the same airspace only a few hundred feet away makes for an exciting skydive. However, not quite as exciting as this other skydiver who literally almost hits a plane. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: The Human Projectile! (Close Call Collision)

Friday Freakout: The Human Projectile! (Close Call...

This is what a human projectile looks like — it’s heavy, it’s fast, and it won’t stop for anyone. Take notes and don’t do this, especially if you only have 65 jumps like this guy. Slow is fast. And in case you’re wondering, here’s what a real mid-air collision looks like. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Parachute Stalls At 250 Feet. Yowsah!

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: Premature Opening, Almost Falls T...

A premature opening while sit flying is never fun, especially when you almost fall through the back of your harness/container (or so it seems). This serves as a reminder that checking your gear — including your pin — is never a bad idea! Need another reminder? Check out what happens when your parachute opens in... Watch Video »
Parachute Proximity: Wingsuit Flock Flyby!

Parachute Proximity: Wingsuit Flock Flyby!

Crazy French dudes are always entertaining, especially when the footage includes wingsuit proximity flying across some sharp mountains, rollovers, and an intense wingsuit flock flyby past a canopy. Watch Video »

How does a guy earn the moniker Sketchy Andy? Just watch this. You’ll understand after the first jump, and then you’ll nod your head in agreement for the remaining nine jumps. Sketchy Andy counts down his top ten sketchiest BASE jumps ever from the safety of his bedroom. From gapping poles, to not-quite jumping out,... Watch Video »

No Outs! Base Jumping Is Easy... Right?

BASE jumping is easy, right? Well there’s nothing easy about this technical Span jump at all. Just when you thought you have no outs… you really have no outs! Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: BASE Jumper Escapes Death By Inches

Friday Freakout: BASE Jumper Escapes Death By Inch...

Matthew Gough had a miracle escape after having an off-heading opening with line twists and a near-fatal cliff strike that sends him falling 1,000 feet to the ground. Not very many people are lucky enough to run down the side of a cliff like a scene from The Matrix and survive with only minor injuries.... Watch Video »

Douggs' Off-Heading Opening, Near Miss Cliff Strik...

“Fuckin’ hell, that was close. Closest I’ve ever come.” Spoken like a true Aussie ninja, talkin’ all casual as his end cells nearly hit the trees. This was Chris ‘Douggs’ McDougall’s first serious off-heading opening after 15 years and over 2,600 BASE jumps. If this was any closer, it would’ve ended up as a proper... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Double Tandem Collision Near Miss

Friday Freakout: Double Tandem Collision Near Miss

Here’s something you don’t see every day (wait for it): a tandem collision near miss with one tandem in freefall and the other under canopy. Another few seconds before deploying and this might have been a tandem sandwich — or at least a very close flyby. Watch Video »
