Friday Freakout: Opening Parachute Hits Instructor In The Face!

Sometimes when a situation takes a downward spiral, you’ve got to take matters into your own hands. One of these skydiving instructors keeps his hands on the student. Good call. The other instructor takes a set of lines to the face instead. Not such a good call. Watch Video »

Ever try to get down to a formation with your d-bag and lines bouncing around? Umm, that’s called a horseshoe and, contrary to Irish folklore, a horseshoe while skydiving is NOT lucky — it’s a malfunction! The key is to ignore the malfunction and arch harder. Oh, and dodge your friend who’s trying to dump... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Tandem Bag Lock Malfunction

Friday Freakout: Tandem Bag Lock Malfunction

How about a sketchy bag lock malfunction on a tandem jump? No thanks! This is a mess from the very first line stow — such is the brilliance of hindsight (and slow motion). Who else is thanking their lucky socks that they’ve never pitched a reserve on their back with someone strapped to their chest?... Watch Video »

Imagine jumping out of a pickup truck on the freeway, skidding to a slow grind, just before the rope tethering you to it snaps tight and jolts you to a halt. That’s pretty much what this trooper was feeling as he got hung up on his static line. With lines wrapped around his gear and... Watch Video »

Cutting away from line twists: 1 case of beer. Low cutaway: 2 cases of beer. Landing in a vineyard under a spinning reserve and living to post the video on ILS: Priceless. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: "The Screamer" Tandem

Friday Freakout: "The Screamer" Tandem

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a “screamer.” This girl has more than just second thoughts before her first tandem; she sounds like a victim being tortured in a horror movie. I’m not gonna lie, I kinda feel bad for her, but I also laughed out loud. Does that make me a horrible person? Watch Video »

If there’s ever a time you’d soil your pants from a scary parachute malfunction, I’d say this is it — when your closing pin pops on exit, you have a horseshoe malfunction, and then get entangled in said horseshoe. Holy shit! Luckily Matt Englehart landed safely after clearing through the lines and chopping that mess.... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Crushing Canopy Collapse

Friday Freakout: Crushing Canopy Collapse

There are those unexpected moments when you suddenly yell “WTF!” out loud. This is one of those moments. One minute he’s coming in on final for a standard landing, the next minute he’s winded, gasping for air as he lie on the ground in shock from a 30 foot fall (give or take) due to... Watch Video »

We’ve all the seen edited footage of Jeb Corliss’ wingsuit crash on Table Mountain. But here’s raw, unedited footage most of you haven’t seen. The Miracle Man Corliss has recovered from this near-death experience, and still has 8 lives left — give or take a few. Just the thought of hitting a mountain in a... Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Trapped Altimeter, Hard One-Hande...

Some days things just don’t go your way. This poor skydiver was having one of those bad days. First, the freefly tube was spinning him around like a top. Then, his altimeter gets trapped in his risers on deployment. And finally, he steers one-handed and lands super hard in a ditch. In a situation like... Watch Video »

Seeing as this is a BASE jump, it’s a pretty short jump and canopy ride. But try telling that to the BASE jumper after bashing himself into a wall not once, but TWICE! That shit’s gotta hurt. Ouch. Not something we advise trying — ever. But good on ‘em for keeping his cool and (we... Watch Video »

Man, you can never have too much nylon! Too right! And not only does he survive being wrapped up in three canopies (including his reserve), but he steers that mess with his right hand and his left foot to land safely in a field. True story. What a BADASS! Watch Video »

Another visual reminder to watch your handles in the plane! This skydiver’s pilot chute gets caught on the inside of the skyvan door. Luckily it wasn’t a caravan or otter where the parachute can get caught on the tail of the plane, like this guy. Watch your HANDLES! Watch YOUR handles! WATCH YOUR HANDLES! Watch Video »

Videos like this don’t usually exist. The reason? Most people would be dead after hitting a canopy in freefall. The upper guy struck the lower guy with both hands on his way by in freefall. I’ve posted some collision close calls in the past, but this is as close as it gets and still living... Watch Video »

It turns out doing a rollover off a bridge CAN be hazardous to your health. Luckily water is good for your health, especially when it breaks your fall. Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Oh-No Hop-n-Pop!

This is pretty much what you don’t want to do on a hop-n-pop. BUT, what she did do right is get a parachute out over her head and landed safely. Primo, numero uno, most important thing. Great. And here are some tips on how to improve: 1) get further forward in the door so you’re... Watch Video »

Usually milestone jumps are the exciting ones, you know, 100, 500, etc. This one is close to 800, but turned out jump number 790 at Summerfest was the one for the YouTube posterity — a snappy head down premature opening. Check your gear before every jump! ~Mel Video by Daniel Croft. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Bridle Wrap. Bag Lock. Oh F*CK!

Friday Freakout: Bridle Wrap. Bag Lock. Oh F*CK!

Reaching around in a wingsuit to pull your pin when your bridle is wrapped around your hackey is a bit of a joy-killer. As is the resulting bag lock. Luckily for Walker Mackey his reserve plays nice and comes out clean. Bet that brought a smile to his face! Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Close Call Wingsuit Collision

Friday Freakout: Close Call Wingsuit Collision

Wingsuit fly-bys can be fun. Unintentional, unplanned fly-bys can be scary as hell. This was a close call and could’ve been avoided had he paid less attention to shooting video and more attention to his surrounding environment. Videos are cool; staying alive is even cooler. Live and learn. Keep your head on a swivel and... Watch Video »
