Friday Freakout: The WTF-Wingsuit-Rodeo-Flyby-Cano...

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 »
Friday Freakout: Skydiver Survives Terrifying Cutaway Entanglement

Friday Freakout: Skydiver Survives Terrifying Cuta...

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: Skydiver Survives Terrifying Low Cutaway, Lands In Trees

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 »

Friday Freakout: Crazy Canopy Collision, Double Cu...

There’s lots of space in the sky… until you get twisted up with line twists, spin out of control, then hit your friend under canopy, causing both of you to cutaway. Solution? More horizontal separation never hurts, but hitting another canopy does. Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Step-Through Reserve = Double WTF...

When you’re dealing with a spinning malfunction in your wingsuit, the last thing you want (or expect) is a step-through on your reserve once you cutaway. But, hey, there’s a first time for everything. He also probably could’ve done without the backflip through the risers to try and clear the step-through. At least his rigger... Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Nooooo! ParaCommander Malfunction...

My boy John Berry thought he’d have some fun with an old Jumbo ParaCommander at Skydive Spaceland. Little did he know that he packed himself a line over and had to ride a reserve manufactured in 1955 (container was a B4 belly mount). First cutaway on a round? Yes way, Johh. Yes way! Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Freak Accident Leads To Cutaway

Guru Khalsa is the victim of a freak accident. The excess brake line gets tangled with his slider stow ball, causing a fast spin and eventually a cutaway.

Having a low cutaway around 1,000 feet is never fun, neither is having 6 solid line twists on your reserve. Good thing he had a Skyhook and could clear those line twists by 500ft.
