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 »

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.

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" 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

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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »

BASE jumping with Nitro Circus can lead to somebody’s first or somebody’s last. I’m not sure if this was Brandon Lillard’s first cliff strike, but luckily it wasn’t his last.

It’s no secret that altitude awareness is crucial for skydivers. As students, we’re taught to never sacrifice altitude for stability. This skydive student spins out of control, loses altitude awareness and pulls by 800 feet, which results in a CYPRES fire as his main canopy inflates. Luckily his reserve stayed in the container and he... Watch Video »

All David Laffargue wanted to do was jump from paragliders, but the ground launch didn’t go as planned. He learned the hard way that it’s not worth hurting yourself unless you get all the footage — the GoPro broke off the helmet as they continued to roll/fall/crash down the rocky hill. Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: WTF?! Mangled Malfunction...

If there’s anything worse than exiting a plane at 8,500 feet and pulling by 7,000 feet, it’s having to play cat’s cradle with your lines as your parachute dives towards the earth. Therese managed to get the lines on both left risers around everything else, resulting in this mangled malfunction and many expletives. Watch Video »
