Friday Freakout: Double Trouble Line Twists

Friday Freakout: Double Trouble Line Twists

As if dealing with more line twists after cutting away wasn’t a nuisance, (possibly) losing your Velo 111 main and shattering your camera lens makes for an all-around expensive day of jumping. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: The Excitement Of A Step-Through Malfunction

Friday Freakout: The Excitement Of A Step-Through ...

Oh, that lovely moment during deployment when you look up and say, “FACK!” A step-through malfunction is guaranteed to make any deployment more interesting. Good job on staying calm, considering it was his first cutaway. Maybe revisit some packing principles though… or your packer! Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Pilot Chute In Tow + Reserve Enta...

Now this is how you retrieve your main after a cutaway!! You know you’re having a bad day when you cutaway from a pilot chute in tow and your bridle still wants to play. It gets WAY more interesting when he tows in his main! Whew! If only he re-packed it on the ride down. Watch Video »

Surprise! You just packed yourself a malfunction before your canopy even opened. Go ahead and cutaway… that step-through isn’t going to fix itself the longer you wait. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: KABOOM! Parachute Rips In Half.

Friday Freakout: KABOOM! Parachute Rips In Half.

Freefly transition + premature deployment = shredded main canopy. Now he has two parachutes for the price of one. Even I’m still seeing stars from the opening, and I only watched the video ;) All is well that ends well. Thanks to Joe Ridler for sharing his footage. Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: The Craziest Ground Rush You Will...

Talk about GROUND RUSH! I can’t believe someone can hit the ground this hard and survive. My friend Liam Dunne of Deepseed is one lucky man. There are several factors that lead to this outcome, but the end result was a CYPRES save, intense ground rush, an 8 inch footprint in the ground, and surgery... Watch Video »

According to Team HEAT, tough guys don’t jump pink. Period. Here’s how Deane Smith of Team Heat feels about pink canopies. WARNING: A pink canopy was severely harmed in the making of this film. Watch Video »

In Soviet Russia, underwear soils you! From what I understand from this incident, her cutaway handle wouldn’t chop so she had to run her fingers up the cable housing to manually pull the cutaway cables. Without an AAD, she manages to deploy the reserve only a few seconds before impacting terra firma, and then lands... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Parachute Cutaway........... Eventually! WTF?!

Friday Freakout: Parachute Cutaway........... Even...

Seems like Johnny Strange was a bit quick on his emergency procedures (wink, wink). What was he waiting for… the ground??! Check out his epic fight against some pretty daunting line twists — although this still doesn’t beat Brian Germain’s 80 seconds of line twists. Nice work on a valiant effort and a safe chop!...

Friday Freakout: Low Wingsuit Cutaway, No AAD, Open By 500ft

Friday Freakout: Low Wingsuit Cutaway, No AAD, Ope...

While wingsuits are all the rage these days, it’s often overlooked that — should a series of events go wrong — you’re now falling toward the earth in a straitjacket. No matter how you slice it, a low deployment followed by a malfunction (without an RSL or AAD), several revolutions on your back, a head-down... Watch Video »
Double Rollovers + Cutaways = Big Smiles

Double Rollovers + Cutaways = Big Smiles

Whoa, whoa whoa. So full of surprises, my heart is still beating fast! A beautiful moment in a hot air balloon above the clouds, double McConkeys (a.k.a. rollovers) into canopy flight, and then… well, you’ll have to watch and see. Magic! Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: 3-In-1 Parachute Wrap, Spin And Ejection

Friday Freakout: 3-In-1 Parachute Wrap, Spin And E...

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 »
Stunt Junkies: Jonathan Tagle's 3-in-1 Stunt

Stunt Junkies: Jonathan Tagle's 3-in-1 Stunt

The late Jonathan Tagle is flying high, wherever he is (RIP buddy), but his legendary stunts will stay with us forever. In this episode of Stunt Junkies, the one and only Tizzle attempts a rad 3-in-1 trifecta that goes from swooping to cutaway to BASE jump. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Low Wingsuit Cutaway At 800ft

Friday Freakout: Low Wingsuit Cutaway At 800ft

How’s this for a first cutaway — in a wingsuit no less: a tension knot which leads to a cutaway at 2,500ft and an open reserve by 800ft. Unfortunately we can’t choose how good/bad our first cutaway will be, or any other cutaway for that matter. What and when was your first cutaway? Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: First Cutaway... F*CK YOU Line Over!

Friday Freakout: First Cutaway... F*CK YOU Line Ov...

Here’s a parachute malfunction without the “freakout.” A line over can really mess up your day (or was that a tension knot?), but Johnny Nashville Havron seems pretty cool about the situation — especially considering this might be his first cutaway. He fights it. He gives it the one-finger salute. He fights it some more.... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Tandem Bag Lock Malfunction

Friday Freakout: Tandem Bag Lock Malfunction

How about a sketchy bag lock malfunction on a tandem jump? No thanks! This is a mess from the very first line stow — such is the brilliance of hindsight (and slow motion). Who else is thanking their lucky socks that they’ve never pitched a reserve on their back with someone strapped to their chest?... Watch Video »

Label 2: Cutaways And High-Fives

Picture this: Cutaway, head down flying, high-five (yes, in that order). Have you ever seen a cutaway followed by some 2-way head down flying? I didn’t think so; neither have I. That’s a first for me, so beers all around. Team Polte knows how to party in the sky. Check out “First Steps” for more... Watch Video »

There’s so much OMGWTF in this video, I don’t even know where to start, so let’s take it from the top. Stable exit and flying? Nope. Tracking at break-off? Nope. Canopy collision? Of course. Cutaway? Definitely (at least he threw both handles away ;-). Wearing cameras? Fuck yeah! Mario Galvan and Jose de Ines are... Watch Video »

Cutting away from line twists: 1 case of beer. Low cutaway: 2 cases of beer. Landing in a vineyard under a spinning reserve and living to post the video on ILS: Priceless. Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Parachute Explodes In Half. Aww, ...

Aww, shitty. Don’t you just hate when your parachute explodes in half! I’m not entirely sure why he chopped though. I mean, it’s there, it’s square (sort of), and can probably flare. Wouldn’t you try to land this? (that’s a rhetorical question) Watch Video »
