Friday Freakout: Hilarious Skydiving Prank

Friday Freakout: Hilarious Skydiving Prank

Amir and Streeter from CollegeHumor have been pulling elaborate pranks on each other for the past 4 years. In Prank War 8, Amir attempts to outdo both the Yankee Stadium and half-court basketball shot pranks by convincing Streeter he’s falling to his death while skydiving. “Kick your legs!” LOL.

Friday Freakout: Student Cypres Save WITH Instructor... WTF?!!

Friday Freakout: Student Cypres Save WITH Instruct...

Aside from this kid looking all sorts of awkward in freefall, this instructor should be fired. There’s no excuse for both a student and an instructor losing altitude awareness. The last alti check seems to be at 0:37 by the student and at, umm, never by the instructor before the student pulls his main and... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Stuck Paratrooper Dragged Behind Plane

Friday Freakout: Stuck Paratrooper Dragged Behind ...

A paratrooper’s static line fails, putting him into a dizzying spin while he’s towed behind the plane. I don’t know much about static line, but why isn’t the jump master or anyone else helping this guy out?! Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Sketchy Wingsuiter Almost Kills Group Of Skydivers

Friday Freakout: Sketchy Wingsuiter Almost Kills G...

No, the title isn’t too dramatic. And NO, this is not just another skydiver on a tracking dive. It’s a wingsuiter attempting to chase a tracking group, but turns into a meat missile instead. I don’t know if this was part of the “plan,” and I know we all screw up from time to time,... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Skydiver Entangled With Parachute Lines On Opening

Friday Freakout: Skydiver Entangled With Parachute...

Unfortunately I don’t have the full story or full footage of this incident, but it looks like this skydiver’s arm gets caught under his riser/lines while deploying his parachute. Anyone want to take a guess at what caused this? Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: High Speed Skydiving Collision & Premature Opening

Friday Freakout: High Speed Skydiving Collision & ...

A high speed collision on a tracking jump is a scary thing. As a result, one of the skydivers was winded from the impact, panicked, and deployed their parachute mid-skydive, narrowly missing another skydiver on opening. This incident should serve as a reminder to NEVER “bomb” a formation, and shows why it’s so important to... Watch Video »

As the saying goes, “if the windsock has a hard on, someone’s getting f***ed.” I might be stating the obvious, but am I the only one who thinks this guy should be teaching a canopy course? Watch Video »

My friend Felipe got himself into a stucky situation. While attempting to stall his canopy, it spins up and his hands get caught in tight line twists! Luckily his gloves didn’t make the situation any worse, or did they? Do you ever jump with gloves? Watch Video »

Not the most graceful way to exit a plane in a wingsuit, although it doesn’t help if your foot gets caught on the step :( Watch Video »

All students are taught to arch. ARCH! Yet, from time to time, this doesn’t work so well. This skydiving student ends up on his back, spinning like a top. Fun times. How well did your AFF Level 3 go? Watch Video »

After 1,500 BASE jumps and 5,000 skydives, Jimmy Pouchert — co-founder of Apex BASE — had come the closest he’s ever been to dying due to a simple yet deadly oversight in his routine gear check. Here’s the backstory and details about the incident in Jimmy’s own words: “This is the closest I’ve ever come... Watch Video »

I know we all make mistakes, but if skydivers like this are sharing the same airspace as the rest of us, they should at least be wearing home arrest-style ankle bracelets so we can keep track of them in the sky. The madness all starts off with a botched wingsuit rodeo, which turns into a... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Skydiving Collision CLOSE Call

Friday Freakout: Skydiving Collision CLOSE Call

Wow, that was way too close for comfort! Kenneth and his friend narrowly miss each other in what could’ve been a nasty crash while flying head down in Sweden. But thanks to the fetal position, they were both lucky this time — unlike these other guys who followed through on their mid-air collision. Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Skydiver Survives Terrifying Cuta...

If you can land safely after a cutaway that involves your reserve getting entangled with your main canopy and lines flying everywhere, I’d say that’s a good reason to crack a beer, change your underwear and call it a day. This mess happened to my friend (aptly nicknamed) Mali. Not only did her reserve entangle... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Skydiver’s Parachute Collapses At 40 Feet!

When your canopy collapses somewhere below 50 feet and you can stand it up (more or less), I’m gonna say that’s a good day. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: BASE Jumper Survives Cliff Strike

Friday Freakout: BASE Jumper Survives Cliff Strike

A cliff strike while BASE jumping can really mess up your day, especially when it ends with a broken pelvis followed by 9 months of recovery. While “always wear protective gear” is never a bad idea, I think the take-away from this incident is to practice tracking off a more forgiving exit point and always... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: When Parachutes Collide… Almost.

Friday Freakout: When Parachutes Collide… Almost...

Unless you’re into CRW, the purpose of tracking away at break-off is to gain horizontal separation so that you DO NOT collide with your friends on opening (or come close enough that you soil your pants). When in doubt, blame the booties ;) Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Altitude Awareness Fail, Double C...

If you can’t be bothered to check your alti at least once or don’t notice ground rush below 1,000 feet, then you should sell your rig and take up bowling or knitting. Unfortunately there’s no cure for stupid, but luckily there are AADs, and the double Cypres fire is what saved both of their asses.... Watch Video »
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 »

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.
