Friday Freakout: Surprise... Unexpected AAD Fire... WTF?!

Friday Freakout: Surprise... Unexpected AAD Fire.....

By no means am I an expert on AAD’s, especially when it comes to Argus, but I do know they’re not supposed to fire unexpectedly while calmly flying your main. I think our friend George Abrao would’ve agreed (he has since passed away in a motorcycle accident). RIP brother. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Skydiver Survives Paralyzing Collision

Friday Freakout: Skydiver Survives Paralyzing Coll...

Stupid DOES hurt (a little too much in this case). Videographer Tim gets too close to “Origami Flying Mofo” and a nasty canopy wrap ensues. Origami Mofo cuts away, but Tim’s not done yet — his lines entangle the reserve, which turns into a blue ball of nylon. Tim impacts a cornfield, breaking his pelvis,... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: BASE Jumper Squeezes Through Rappel Lines

Friday Freakout: BASE Jumper Squeezes Through Rapp...

Jumping off a bridge, getting whipped into line twists on opening, then squeezing a parachute through rappel lines and landing on railroad tracks isn’t really my thing. BUT, it certainly makes for an entertaining Bridge Day video. Glad the star of this show landed safely with an awesome story to tell. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Bridle Wraps Around Skydiving Student's Foot!

A bridle wrapped around a student’s foot certainly isn’t an ideal deployment, but it beats having the bridle wrapped around the neck like this other AFF student. Watch Video »

Don’t be such a buzzkill… this kid is clueless and lovin’ life right now. Look up man… see what’s goin’ on… kick! Whoooa… how’d we do?! Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: BASE Jumper Survives Terrifying Cliff Strike!!!

Friday Freakout: BASE Jumper Survives Terrifying C...

This is by far one of the most terrifying BASE jump cliff strikes I’ve ever witnessed. His injuries include a compression fracture of the T12 vertebra, 5 stitches to the eye, 6 stitches to the chin, severely sprained back, wrist and hand, multiple bruised areas… but he “walked away” alive!! Speedy recovery dude! Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Whoa! Tandem Skydive Spins Out Of Control!

Friday Freakout: Whoa! Tandem Skydive Spins Out Of...

This isn’t quite the spin cycle of death from an inflatable turtle, but if this was my very first tandem skydive, I’m pretty sure I would: 1) think I’m going to die, 2) puke, and 3) be amazed I’m still alive, but still think I’m gonna die. Watch Video »

Nothing makes you shit the proverbial bed than when you’re an AFF student running out of altitude and you deploy your parachute while spinning on your back / head down. Great job by the student on getting his parachute out despite the situation. As they say: never sacrifice altitude for stability. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Jet Misses Skydivers In Freefall

Friday Freakout: Jet Misses Skydivers In Freefall

Private jets are cool, unless they’re flying through the same air space while you’re filming a tandem skydive. Not cool. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Premature Opening, Too Close For Comfort

Friday Freakout: Premature Opening, Too Close For ...

You know a premature opening is too close for comfort when the canopy hits you in the face while it’s opening. This is the type of stuff that can happen when you funnel a 12-way belly jump. Lesson learned… stick to freeflying (kidding, kidding). Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Panic Mode - AFF Level 6

Friday Freakout: Panic Mode - AFF Level 6

If the goal of this AFF jump was to panic and not arch at all, then I consider it a huge success! Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: The Death Spin

Friday Freakout: The Death Spin

ILS co-founder Rick Winkler thought he’d have fun on a routine jump with some inflatable toys. Little did he know the inflatable would wrap around his leg, put him into a spin cycle of death, and burst all the capillaries in both of his eyes. True story. Stick around until the very end for a... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Scary Speedflying Crash! Broken, But Survives.

Friday Freakout: Scary Speedflying Crash! Broken, ...

Heavy winds and rotors don’t go well with speedflying. This guy’s wing collapses, sending him hurling towards the ground which resulted in two broken ribs, concussion, traumatic brain injury, acute pneumothorax, laceration of the liver, and a pulmonary contusion. Glad he survived this accident, and even better that his head still wasn’t attached to the... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Mr. Bill Goes Wrong On 100th Skydive

Friday Freakout: Mr. Bill Goes Wrong On 100th Skyd...

If you’re attempting to do a Mr. Bill for your 100th jump and the exit goes slightly head down, it’s probably not going to work out very well… especially when your foot is caught around some lines. I remember doing a Mr. Bill for my 100th, but it wasn’t nearly as exciting as this attempt. Watch Video »
EXCLUSIVE VIDEO: Planes Collide In Terrifying Skydiving Accident

EXCLUSIVE VIDEO: Planes Collide In Terrifying Skyd...

This is by far the craziest footage I’ve ever seen and couldn’t wait until Friday to post it. Straight up batshit crazy! Two airplanes collide. One plane loses its wing. The skydivers escape, including the pilot flying the fiery mess. The other pilot lands a damaged airplane. All without injury or death… AMAZING!!! Watch Video »

Target fixation gets the best of us sometimes. Just a thought: your friends might be easier to spot if they’re not rockin’ a full camouflage jumpsuit. Just sayin’. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Swoop. Bounce. Crash. Fail.

Friday Freakout: Swoop. Bounce. Crash. Fail.

Ouch! This looks like it hurt, but could’ve ended a lot worse. There were a number of contributing factors, namely staying on his brakes to let larger canopies land first and trusting his rears too long when he realized he was too low. Other than that (and the resulting bounce)… nice swoop :p When in... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Close Canopy Collision

Friday Freakout: Close Canopy Collision

Yeah, so you know that whole concept of separation between groups on exit. Well apparently that didn’t quite work on this jump. Not sure how strong the upper winds were or what the previous group was doing on their jump, but this skydiver buzzes another canopy after break off. Yikes. Close call. Watch Video »

Phew… only broken ribs, a concussion, a misplaced shoe, a missing sock, and a missed competition. Saied went against everyone’s advice and jumped in crappy conditions after a recent downsize, driven by the anxiousness to be ready for a competition in 3 days. So much for that. Glad we can all learn from his non-fatal... Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Skydiving Fail Compilation

Not the best advertising for our sport to say the least. A compilation of clips including a parachute on fire, someone landing in power lines, and a fake bounce. Yeeeeeeaaahhhh…. (think Bill Lumberg, Office Space). Watch Video »
