Friday Freakout: Skydiver Almost Entangles With Reserve Deployment On His Back

Friday Freakout: Skydiver Almost Entangles With Re...

Line twists aren’t much fun. Neither is a reserve deployment when you’re on your back — but it sure is great to have a parachute over your head as quickly as possible. Something tells me this could’ve been worse if he had a rear-facing GoPro mounted on the back of his helmet. Watch Video »

If there’s anything worse then having a nasty hard opening, line twists and a cutaway, it’s having your gear scattered across the sky and then bartering with the local South Africans to get your helmet and GoPro back. Fun times all around — or at least for the locals. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Wild Wingsuit Flat Spin & Cutaway

Friday Freakout: Wild Wingsuit Flat Spin & Cutaway

As a new wingsuit pilot with only a few jumps under his belt, Nick experiences a nasty flat spin immediately after exit on this particular jump. He deploys his main on the verge of losing consciousness. He chops his main on the verge of losing bowel control. Nick says he’ll just stick to bowling from... Watch Video »

A poorly stowed brake line catches on the ring sight of Jeff’s helmet. Unable to clear the entanglement, he cuts away his main canopy without attempting to cutaway his helmet first, which is still securely attached to his head. Luckily the helmet rips off — it should have broken his neck. Welcome to the less-than-9-lives... Watch Video »
Double Cutaway BASE Jump, Falls Into River

Double Cutaway BASE Jump, Falls Into River

There’s something exciting about a self-induced double cutaway BASE jump, especially when the goal is to fall into the river and the second cutaway is a bit higher than you thought. Miles Daisher just being himself. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: How NOT To Pack A Parachute

Friday Freakout: How NOT To Pack A Parachute

When you pay for a pack job, the last thing you’d expect is a step-through and a misrouted toggle (at least that’s what this looks like), yet that’s exactly what Tom got on his next jump. Money well spent :p Watch Video »

During a Wingsuit Speed Camp at Skydive DeLand, Steve Hubbard experienced an uncontrollable spin while flying with Jay Moledzki and another jumper as part of the experienced group. Nearing break off, Steve makes a small movement to check his airspace and locate Jay, which results in an unrecoverable spin. Steve responded by deploying his main canopy... Watch Video »

There are some people who get one chance at life and there are those who get 9 lives — either due to their cat-like reflexes or just sheer luck. Then there’s Sketchy Andy — a manboy who continually cheats death and who has officially used 22 of his 9 lives after this intentional BASE jump... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Skydiver Nearly Hits Parachute In Freefall After Cutaway

Friday Freakout: Skydiver Nearly Hits Parachute In...

Line twists lead to a cutaway, which sends a skydiver flying through another canopy’s airspace. Yet another reason why proper separation at break-off is so important. And an RSL isn’t a bad idea either, but I’m sure some of you have an opinion about that. Watch Video »

An AFF student unintentionally pulls his instructor’s cutaway handle. Nobody notices. Instructor pulls his main, which is followed by an expensive surprise. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Reserve Parachute Snags On GoPro. Scary Stuff!

Friday Freakout: Reserve Parachute Snags On GoPro....

A wingsuit pilot experiences line twists that lead to a cutaway. The reserve snags on the rear-facing GoPro, which delays and further complicates the reserve deployment until the GoPro mount breaks. If this happened at a much lower altitude or sub-terminal speed (think BASE), the pilot chute may not have generated enough drag to break... Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Paraglider Rips In Half, Almost E...

Wow. There’s so much “WTF!” going on in this video that it’s hard to keep track. I’m not a paragliding expert, but I’m pretty sure a parachute isn’t supposed to rip in half — ever. Talk about an exciting tandem paragliding experience! Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: WTF?! Mangled Malfunction...

If there’s anything worse than exiting a plane at 8,500 feet and pulling by 7,000 feet, it’s having to play cat’s cradle with your lines as your parachute dives towards the earth. Therese managed to get the lines on both left risers around everything else, resulting in this mangled malfunction and many expletives. Watch Video »

I know we all make mistakes, but if skydivers like this are sharing the same airspace as the rest of us, they should at least be wearing home arrest-style ankle bracelets so we can keep track of them in the sky. The madness all starts off with a botched wingsuit rodeo, which turns into a... Watch Video »

If you can land safely after a cutaway that involves your reserve getting entangled with your main canopy and lines flying everywhere, I’d say that’s a good reason to crack a beer, change your underwear and call it a day. This mess happened to my friend (aptly nicknamed) Mali. Not only did her reserve entangle... Watch Video »
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 »
Two-Minute Cutaway!

Two-Minute Cutaway!

Here’s a solid two and a half minutes of nothing but cutting away. You think I’m joking? Do yourself a favor and cutaway — save yourself! The first person to name this (classic?) movie wins one FREE cutaway. Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Skydiver Survives Terrifying Low ...

When your world is spinning ’round under canopy, it’s usually best to cutaway before, say, you can count the pine needles on the trees. Either way, a low cutaway and landing in trees with minimal injuries sure is better than dying. The conclusion: a tension knot, heavy winter clothes and a stuck handle makes for... Watch Video »
