Premature openings have been a common Friday Freakout theme lately. Not cool. NEWS FLASH: a loose BOC will cause a premie… it’s even worse if you’re mid-cartwheel when it happens. Watch Video »

Well, it’s more like the plane almost hit the skydiver. Either way, our friends at Team Skyscrapers had some underwear to change after this close call. Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Plane Attempts Take-Off, Crashes Into Water

Friday Freakout: Plane Attempts Take-Off, Crashes ...

An emergency landing on a beach, then crashing into the water on take-off made this situation go from bad to worse. I’m no pilot, but were they even going to clear that tree line if they did take off?? Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Swoop Comp Crash

Friday Freakout: Swoop Comp Crash

A swooper biffs in at the Dubai International Parachuting Championship, and the “coaches” chime in with some color commentary. Anyone care to translate… all I caught was “freestyle.” Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: AFF Student Spin Cycle

I can’t say that I’ve ever seen an AFF student grab their own foot in freefall, but now I can honestly say that I’ve seen everythingn. #SpinCycle Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Sketchy Cutaway Fly-By

Horizontal separation at break off is usually a good thing to avoid canopy collisions, or when your buddy chops and flies past you in freefall. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Head Down Premature Openings Suck!

Friday Freakout: Head Down Premature Openings Suck...

A loose BOC + unsecured pilot chute + head down flying = snappy premature opening. Plus, jumping with Ben Nelson didn’t help the situation either. Watch Video »

Off-heading openings in BASE can go wrong really fast. This day could’ve ended much differently if Scott wasn’t so quick to respond. In the wise words of Douggs, “BASE jumping… it’s not f*ckin table tennis!” Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Double Cypres Fire, 2 Skydivers, ...

Two skydivers scrambling to deal with a Cypres fire and two-out makes for an exciting 2-way Scrambles competition. Given the situation, which would you prefer: a side-by-side or bi-plane? (the obvious choice is neither, but I’m just curious) Watch Video »

Well, I’ve seen all sorts of target fixation, from a skydiver flying straight into a blimp or hitting a stage, to another skydiver hitting a parked truck and now this — a skydiver hitting a pump maintenance shack. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: HOLY SH*T, That Was Close!

Friday Freakout: HOLY SH*T, That Was Close!

I bet both of these skydivers have never been so grateful for an off-heading opening. Phew! Zoo dive: 1, Death: 0. Watch Video »

Nothing puts the FUN in malfunction like an accidental jump on a Russian D-6 round that was packed for “educational purposes” and put on by mistake. Tanel exited at 2,000 feet only to discover that he was wearing the wrong parachute AND it had a step through. Oops! Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Instructor Punches Tandem Student In Freefall

Friday Freakout: Instructor Punches Tandem Student...

I’m not a tandem instructor, but I’m pretty sure a tandem skydive doesn’t involve punching your student repeatedly in freefall (regardless of their poor body position). At least the student was already in the fetal position once the jabs and right-hooks started flying. Thoughts? Watch Video »

There isn’t too much snow around the Perrine Bridge in the middle of July with 100 degree temps. So what’s a pro skier like Mike Wilson and his crew supposed to do when they have an idea to pull off a rail slide to BASE jump? Import ice, of course, and use a wood chipper... Watch Video »
