Friday Freakout: Spinning Skydive Student Pulls Reserve

Friday Freakout: Spinning Skydive Student Pulls Re...

Yes, this AFF student spins out of control. And yes, he pulls his reserve at 9,000 feet. But in his defense, the instructor unexpectedly induced the spin after telling the student to pull his reserve if he got separated for any reason (according to the videographer). Not. Cool. 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: Russian Tandem Screamer

Friday Freakout: Russian Tandem Screamer

Remember your first skydive? Yeah, I screamed too. We may not be able to understand what she’s saying, but we DEFinitely understand what she’s feeling. I hate to admit I laughed at this video, but I’m cool with it because she does smile once in freefall and genuinely laughs happily under canopy (before screaming again... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Skydiving Nutshot

Friday Freakout: Skydiving Nutshot

I’m not sure what’s worse: taking a nutshot on a hybrid-gone-wrong or listening to this high-pitched music — although quite fitting considering the circumstances. Thanks to Greg Lu for sharing this hilarious clip. Wait for it… Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Nasty Paragliding Tree Crash

Friday Freakout: Nasty Paragliding Tree Crash

Flying your paraglider in weak conditions might end with a nasty tree landing like this. Not smart. Lesson learned. And he ‘landed’ without a scratch! Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Reserve Parachute Snags On GoPro. Scary Stuff!

Friday Freakout: Reserve Parachute Snags On GoPro....

A wingsuit pilot experiences line twists that lead to a cutaway. The reserve snags on the rear-facing GoPro, which delays and further complicates the reserve deployment until the GoPro mount breaks. If this happened at a much lower altitude or sub-terminal speed (think BASE), the pilot chute may not have generated enough drag to break... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Tandem Skydive Near Collision In Freefall

Friday Freakout: Tandem Skydive Near Collision In ...

An AFF student pulls high (apparently by his AFF instructor) then flies up jump run, nearly colliding with a tandem skydive and videographer in freefall. It’s important to note that the AFF student got out on the first pass at 10,500 feet, while the other fun jumpers and tandems got out on the second pass... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Paraglider Rips In Half, Almost Ends In Disaster

Friday Freakout: Paraglider Rips In Half, Almost E...

Wow. There’s so much “WTF!” going on in this video that it’s hard to keep track. I’m not a paragliding expert, but I’m pretty sure a parachute isn’t supposed to rip in half — ever. Talk about an exciting tandem paragliding experience! Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: High Speed "Meat Missile" Skydiving Collision

Friday Freakout: High Speed "Meat Missile" Skydivi...

A meat missile is the complete opposite of “level, slot, dock.” This skydiving collision resulted in her wearing a back brace for a few weeks, but luckily it wasn’t any worse — this is how people get paralyzed or die in our sport. Please play safe out there! Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Insanely Close Canopy Collision!!!

Friday Freakout: Insanely Close Canopy Collision!!...

When separate groups of skydivers invade each other’s airspace, close calls like this are bound to happen. This is waaaay too close for comfort! Not entirely sure what led to this incident, but it should serve as a reminder to give enough separation between groups and never track up/down jump run. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Handstand Fail at Bridge Day 2014

Friday Freakout: Handstand Fail at Bridge Day 2014

A valiant effort on what appears to be this BASE jumpers first attempt at a handstand — at Bridge Day no less — but I think he’s doing it wrong :p He did land safely, which is all that matters. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Winter BASE Jump Goes Wrong, Slips On Exit

Friday Freakout: Winter BASE Jump Goes Wrong, Slip...

Planning a building BASE jump in the winter is one thing. Slipping as you exit, going head down and pitching on your back, then flying into the building probably wasn’t part of the plan. Watch Video »

If you’re going to land off DZ, you better make it an epic adventure… like landing in a swamp and being saved by strangers in a sketchy boat. Merde! Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Really Bad Day = Hard Opening, AAD Fire, Landing Two Entangled Parachutes

Friday Freakout: Really Bad Day = Hard Opening, AA...

A hard opening sucks. Period. A hard opening followed by an AAD fire and a messy two-out just as you’re coming in on final is less than ideal. Talk about a bad day. What would you do: cutaway or…? Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Meat Missile Collides With Skydiv...

A meat missile takes out his friends on a belly jump, losing 2 cameras and 1 helmet in the process — a yard sale in the sky. It’s a good thing the helmet was wearing him for protection. Watch Video »

Ground launch fail. If you grind your face along the ground and end up with grass in your teeth, you’re doing it wrong. Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: OUCH! Who Says You Can't Track In...

At the expense of my personal safety and well-being, I present to you my very first (and hopefully last) “tunnel tracking” incident for your entertainment. Go higher and dive faster, he said. It’ll be fun, he said. Well, I may love skydiving… but I still don’t know what the hell I’m doing. Don’t try this... Watch Video »

What starts off as a standard landing for a 240-jump skydiver quickly escalates to an “oh shit” moment, nearly smashing into some parked cars in the process. Remember: never stop flying your parachute (and don’t be a toggle jockey :-). Watch Video »
