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 »
Friday Freakout: Freak Accident Leads To Cutaway

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. Releasing the right toggle may have fixed the problem, but who knows. At least he’s alive and he found out his reserve works. More importantly, he’s really... Watch Video »

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 »

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 »
Friday Freakout: Parachute Wrap With Freefly Tube... Woooooo!

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 »

What could possibly go wrong with a wingsuit rodeo — if it doesn’t work out, you just fall off the wingsuit and business as usual, right? Think again. Remember, wingsuits have large burbles. Here’s what can happen if you pitch while on the back of a wingsuit, not to mention the extra pucker factor of... 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.

A Mr. Bill with inexperienced jumpers can go wrong really fast — like getting wrapped up in your pilot chute and bridle right out the door. Take notes… don’t do this! I’m sure it sounded like a good idea at the time. What could possibly go wrong? Watch Video »

Some days things just don’t go your way. This poor skydiver was having one of those bad days. First, the freefly tube was spinning him around like a top. Then, his altimeter gets trapped in his risers on deployment. And finally, he steers one-handed and lands super hard in a ditch. In a situation like... 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 »

All goes well until it’s time to dump (no pun intended), then shit hits the fan. Pilot chute entanglement. Shit. Reserve pilot chute entanglement. Shit. Reserve freebag entanglement. Shit!
