Distance Battles in Dubai (DIPC)

Distance Battles in Dubai (DIPC)

Following the Mad Swooping Skills video I posted earlier this week, here’s a mix of the canopy formation, formation skydiving, and canopy piloting rounds from Day 3 of the third annual Dubai International Parachuting Championship (DIPC) at Skydive Dubai. Keep your eyes peeled at 4:43 for some swooping carnage. Oh, and a rant from the... Watch Video »
This Is Why We Fly

This Is Why We Fly

I don’t know about you, but this is why I skydive. An incredible shot of the tracking teams at the P3 Big Way Camp at Skydive Perris earlier this year. Photo by Juan Mayer Photography. What is it about skydiving that gets you excited? View Photo »

Get Away From Me!

Get Away From Me!

When there are 200 skydivers on a big way record jump, the only thought running through my mind at break-off until landing is, “get away from me!” If you’re looking for video, check out Craig O’Brien’s footage from this 200-way California state formation skydiving record attempt at Skydive Perris.

200-Way Record Attempt Over California

200-Way Record Attempt Over California

Following yesterday’s photo of the 200-way exit, this is Craig O’Brien’s video of 200 of the world’s most talented skydivers attempting to break the California state record at Skydive Perris in October 2011 (submission as an official record is still pending). Congrats to everyone on the jump! Craig, that’s some badass backslididing at break-off. Watch Video »
Big Way Traffic: 200-Way Exit

Big Way Traffic: 200-Way Exit

A little traffic is expected on big ways, especially when 200 skydivers exiting 9 aircraft attempt to set a new California state formation skydiving record at Skydive Perris. Landing must have been interesting; kind of like this big way landing traffic, only twice as many skydivers/canopies. This is just a teaser for tomorrow’s video, so... View Photo »
Blue Skies and Water Over Thailand

Blue Skies and Water Over Thailand

A 14-way formation skydive at the 2009 Thai Sky Festival in — you guessed it — Thailand. Unfortunately the 2011 Thai Sky Festival was cancelled but will hopefully be back next year. This shot reminds me of a few skydiving pics in paradise, like Luigi Cani flying his wingsuit over Fiji and this 6-way formation... View Photo »
Amazing 400-Way Formation Skydiving World Record

Amazing 400-Way Formation Skydiving World Record

This is an old clip from 2006 of the World Team completing the 400-way formation skydiving world record in Thailand. This isn’t like the Mission 100 big way at Parachute Montreal or the Square One 200-Way Sequential at Skydive Arizona. This is a very impressive 400-way… like a game of human Tetris in the sky....

New Brazilian 102-Way Record at Skydive Arizona

New Brazilian 102-Way Record at Skydive Arizona

I love the look of “raining people” on big way formation skydives. This is a great feel-good video. Congrats to the Brazilian Dream Team for setting a new 102-way Brazilian big way record at Skydive Arizona on April 20, 2011. Juan Mayer also snapped a great shot of the exit on this jump.

Skydiving + Tahiti + Friends = Paradise

Skydiving in Tahiti with friends is my kind of paradise. This is such a beautiful shot of Oj, Vairani, Jeremy, Olivier, Niko and Raimana doing a 6-way skydive at Tahiti Skydive. Photo by Raimana Teina. Anyone up for a skydiving vacation? View Photo »

60-Way Skydiving Record in Ukraine

60-Way Skydiving Record in Ukraine

This is the Ukranian 60-way big way formation skydiving record set in 2009 at DZ Borodianka. The exit was at 16,000 feet (4,800 meters) and the completed formation was only flying for a few seconds before break-off… but a success! Watch Video »

Hired Guns: The Freeflying Frenchmen

Who knew Frenchmen could fly? Kidding, kidding. The Hired Guns are a Montreal-based vertical formation skydiving (VFS) team who seem to know a thing or two about freeflying. This is Day 1 and 2 of their 2011 season opener at Parachute Montreal. Pas mal du tout, Hired Guns! Watch Video »
