Friday Freakout: Bag Lock Fly-By!

Friday Freakout: Bag Lock Fly-By!

My idea of a typical fly-by involves a wingsuit and proper planning, not a skydiver whizzing by in freefall with bag lock. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: POV - Bike BASE Jump Goes Wrong!

Friday Freakout: POV - Bike BASE Jump Goes Wrong!

Remember the clown who thought it was a brilliant idea to launch his bike off a sketchy ramp over a very short cliff?? Well here’s the POV footage we’ve all been waiting for. Stupid hurts. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: New Game - Dodge The Opening Parachute!

Friday Freakout: New Game - Dodge The Opening Para...

Aside from the Phil Collins remix, not much happens during this skydive… until it’s time to pull. Dodge the opening parachute is the name of this game. Many different levels on what was supposed to be a 4-way. Things to consider next time: if you go low, track away like a mofo; and, don’t pitch... 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: Triple Fail Trifecta - 3 Speedflying Crashes

Friday Freakout: Triple Fail Trifecta - 3 Speedfly...

After watching this, I’m having second thoughts about trying speedflying, or flying a pink parachute. OUCH! Triple ouch. First he crashes into a tree, followed by a failed barrel roll, and then he comes up short while trying to clear a gap and crashes into a cliff. Pretty scenery, not so pretty landings… even with...

Friday Freakout: "The Screamer" Tandem

Friday Freakout: "The Screamer" Tandem

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a “screamer.” This girl has more than just second thoughts before her first tandem; she sounds like a victim being tortured in a horror movie. I’m not gonna lie, I kinda feel bad for her, but I also laughed out loud. Does that make me a horrible person? Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Plane Stalls, Falls Down, Goes Boom!!!

Friday Freakout: Plane Stalls, Falls Down, Goes Bo...

This epic plane stall is definitely up there on the “holy shit” list, along with that terrifying plane stall in South Africa I posted a while ago. Except this plane fall down, go boom! Literally. Just watch… and wait… and don’t hold your breath for too long. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Parachute Opens, Catches On Plane Tail

Friday Freakout: Parachute Opens, Catches On Plane...

As the saying goes, “Plan the jump and jump the plan.” But sometimes a jump just doesn’t go according to plan. Like when your parachute deploys in the door and wraps around the tail of the plane, tossing you around like a puppet on strings. This video, as well as the premature parachute opening on...

Friday Freakout: Dumb and Dumber, Dirty Low Pull

Friday Freakout: Dumb and Dumber, Dirty Low Pull

This is ninety seconds of dumb and dumber. At least he realized how dumb this was and hopefully learned from it. In other news, I’ve heard AADs save lives, and rumor has it that flaring helps for soft landings. I still think this insane dirty low pull is the lowest I’ve ever seen — it’s... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Skydiver Survives Double Malfunction Crash

Friday Freakout: Skydiver Survives Double Malfunct...

Mike Holmes survived a nasty double malfunction at Taupo Tandem Skydiving in New Zealand, making a nauseating thud as he hit the ground at 70+ MPH. His intense footage aired on the Today Show shortly after his accident in December 2006. I’m not sure that luckily landing in a plump patch of blackberry bushes helped... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Terrifying Plane Stall

Friday Freakout: Terrifying Plane Stall

This is the ultimate Friday Freakout. A paraplegic tandem skydive. A stalled plane in a corkscrew. A loose reserve handle. And scared skydivers. The first few things that come to mind are “oh f*ck” and “get out now!” So happy to see everyone land safely. That was pretty intense. Thanks to Frederik Potgieter for sharing... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Paraglider Cheats Death in Moab

Friday Freakout: Paraglider Cheats Death in Moab

The last thing a paraglider wants to see flash before their eyes as they ground launch off a cliff in Moab is their glider. I think the only thing that re-inflated his glider was the warm, moist air that came out of his pants. “Oh f**k. Ohhh, shit. Holy shit” sounds about right. This could’ve... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Low Hook Turn. Bad Idea.

Friday Freakout: Low Hook Turn. Bad Idea.

Don’t try this at home. Initiating a hook turn 100 feet lower than normal will get you a broken femur, a nice piece of titanium and a few screws in your leg. And if you do attempt to pull off a stunt like this, you may consider trying it at the end of the summer…... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: We've Got A Screamer

Friday Freakout: We've Got A Screamer

This girl is still game for her tandem jump, but she screams her ass off on the way to the door. This is a pretty tame “screamer” compared to the grown man crying before his tandem or the woman freaking out on her tandem exit. What do you think… at what point should a tandem... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Shit, Meet Fan

Friday Freakout: Shit, Meet Fan

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! Did I mention shit hits the fan? As if his day couldn’t get any worse, watch ’til the very end for the final bit of “oh... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: "Mr. Bill" Goes Horribly Wrong

Friday Freakout: "Mr. Bill" Goes Horribly Wrong

Three words come to mind: cutaway, shit and F*CK — not particularly in that order. Glenda and Phil attempt a Mr. Bill which goes horribly wrong. If you don’t know what “Mr. Bill” is, please don’t try this at home. Have you ever successfully pulled off a Mr. Bill? Watch Video »

Note to self: Don’t roll backwards through risers to celebrate a good jump! Chris Grissom was lucky enough to fight his way through this nasty double malfunction and walk away unharmed. I’ll bet $20 he doesn’t know how to speak Spanish… this mal just scared the English right out of him. Blue skies and soft(er)... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Skydiver Nearly Impacts Mountain!

Friday Freakout: Skydiver Nearly Impacts Mountain!

Holy &$@%, this is scary! This video should emphasize the importance of a proper spot... especially over mountains. Audidbles and AADs didn't help in this situation because they were set for a landing area at a much lower altitude. There has been some debate over whether he should've used his reserve (textbook emergency procedure) instead of his main (instinct). Thoughts? Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Women Freaks Out on Tandem Exit

Friday Freakout: Women Freaks Out on Tandem Exit

This women freaks out right before exit on her first tandem skydive, but in the end she makes the jump. Although this is pretty entertaining, you can’t criticize her… she’s just verbally expressing what most of us were probably thinking before our first skydive. Did you scream/yell/cry before your first jump? Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: April Fool's Edition

Today’s April Fool’s edition of Friday Freakout is a collection of bloopers, mishaps and malfunctions over the years. This is dedicated to all the skydivers and BASE jumpers who are determined to “die another day.” Mark Twain once said, “Let us be thankful for the fools. But for them the rest of us could not...
