Friday Freakout: BASE Jumper Spins Into Trees

Friday Freakout: BASE Jumper Spins Into Trees

This BASE jumper’s canopy spins up on opening, which takes him a bit lower than he’d like and he ends up in the trees. It almost looks like he could’ve made it over the trees on his right side, but I’m just a spectator in this situation and hindsight is 20/20. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Skydiver Hangs From Plane By Seatbelt!

Friday Freakout: Skydiver Hangs From Plane By Seat...

Although this may not be part of your “standard” gear check, please take the time to make sure you’re not connected to the aircraft by your seatbelt before you exit — especially when your friends are telling you to “STOP!” At least it wasn’t an instructor hanging from the plane like this other incident.

Friday Freakout: BASE Jumper Survives 400 ft. Impact, Like Wile E. Coyote

Friday Freakout: BASE Jumper Survives 400 ft. Impa...

This video seems out of a Chuck Jones cartoon of the Roadrunner and the Coyote, but it’s real. It happened in Konakova, Russia. A BASE jumper jumps off the top of a 400-foot (120 meter) electric tower, but his parachute fails. Miraculously, he survived the fall thanks to the powdered snow below. He broke his... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: AFF Student Spins Like A Top

Friday Freakout: AFF Student Spins Like A Top

As students, we’re all taught to arch, ARch, ARCH! Unfortunately that doesn’t work so well for this guy. He ends up on his back, spinning like a top. Or maybe he just couldn’t wait to start back flying. After all, it was his fourth jump (AFF Level 4). How did you fourth jump go? Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Another Wild Parachute Wrap

Friday Freakout: Another Wild Parachute Wrap

What starts out as a solid 4-stack CRW (canopy relative work) rotation by Team Hypoxia quickly turns into four good friends trying to kill each other in another wild parachute wrap. Surprisingly, this mess only resulted in one cutaway. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Crunch! 60 MPH Parachute Collision

Friday Freakout: Crunch! 60 MPH Parachute Collisio...

At 60 MPH (about 100 km/h), the crunching sound of this gnarly parachute collision is like watching a car crash… minus the airbags and bumpers. I’m sure both of these skydivers wish they’d tracked just a little bit further apart for more separation. Remember to keep your head up, eyes open, and cover yourself with... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Skydiver Stuffs Parachute Down Chest After Pilot Chute In Tow Malfunction!

Friday Freakout: Skydiver Stuffs Parachute Down Ch...

A reserve ride after a pilot chute in tow turns into a sketchy two-out scenario, leaving this skydiver to think quickly: land the two-out, cutaway the main, or… stuff the inflating main parachute down his chest strap to keep it put? He opts for the latter! Now, let’s play some trivia. With a pilot chute... Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: 2 Skydivers Knocked Out From Coll...

This situation escalates quickly, from a simple angle jump to two skydivers being knocked out in freefall. The girl in the white jumpsuit loses control and hits another skydiver in the back of the head/neck. She gets knocked out for the duration of the jump and is saved by her Cypres. The “victim” also gets... Watch Video »

This jump starts off well, with a wingsuit rodeo flying alongside a small tracking flock. Then Dan gets spun up on his Velo and has to deal with lots of line twists. A whole lot. Check out how he handles the situation. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Skydiver Passes Out From Hypoxia In Freefall

Friday Freakout: Skydiver Passes Out From Hypoxia ...

What’s it like to pass out from hypoxia in freefall? Well, it starts with 5 skydivers at 22,000 feet and only 4 oxygen masks. Those numbers just don’t add up. After exiting the plane, one of the skydivers becomes unconscious in freefall; his 2 friends have to stabilize him and deploy his main parachute. When... Watch Video »

This is what happens when you realize mid-swoop that your canopy is simply too big to land. Watch Video »

What goes up, must come down. Fixed-rope towing can get serious (and scary) pretty quickly, so I DO NOT recommend you try this home. Watch Video »

Hitting a food truck while flying your parachute brings new meaning to the term “fast food.” Watch Video »

This laser jump was going according to plan, with nothing but fun and smiles… until one of these skydivers has a snappy premature opening on his back (with toilet paper in his hand, no less). The situation got worse: his reserve deployed into his main canopy, which was still tangled around him when he cutaway.... 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 »

This is what happens when you do a hybrid jump from 4,500 feet and lose altitude awareness. Low pull = Cypres fire = two parachutes for the price of one. Now that’s a good deal. Watch Video »
