Friday Freakout: Wild Wingsuit Flat Spin & Cutaway

As a new wingsuit pilot with only a few jumps under his belt, Nick experiences a nasty flat spin immediately after exit on this particular jump. He deploys his main on the verge of losing consciousness. He chops his main on the verge of losing bowel control. Nick says he’ll just stick to bowling from... Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: DO NOT PULL LOW - Wingsuit Pilot ...

A planned wingsuit flyby ends with an unplanned low pull and nasty line twists. The wingsuit pilot decides to kick out the twists instead of cutting away due to the low altitude, but can’t clear them in time and lands with the lines twists. Remember: altitude is your friend. Don’t pull low. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Skydiver Nearly Hits Parachute In Freefall After Cutaway

Friday Freakout: Skydiver Nearly Hits Parachute In...

Line twists lead to a cutaway, which sends a skydiver flying through another canopy’s airspace. Yet another reason why proper separation at break-off is so important. And an RSL isn’t a bad idea either, but I’m sure some of you have an opinion about that. 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.

If you’re going to tell a really lame joke, you should expect a close call or carnage to follow. Annette O’Neil narrowly misses the KL Tower and lands with line twists like a champ! Anette just so happens to be the resident expert at ExtremeSports.About.com, so she knows a thing or two about air sports. Watch Video »

My friend Felipe got himself into a stucky situation. While attempting to stall his canopy, it spins up and his hands get caught in tight line twists! Luckily his gloves didn’t make the situation any worse, or did they? Do you ever jump with gloves? Watch Video »

If you can land safely after a cutaway that involves your reserve getting entangled with your main canopy and lines flying everywhere, I’d say that’s a good reason to crack a beer, change your underwear and call it a day. This mess happened to my friend (aptly nicknamed) Mali. Not only did her reserve entangle... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: BASE Jumper Spins Into Trees

Friday Freakout: BASE Jumper Spins Into Trees

This BASE jumper’s canopy spins up on opening, which takes him a bit lower than he’d like and he ends up in the trees. It almost looks like he could’ve made it over the trees on his right side, but I’m just a spectator in this situation and hindsight is 20/20. Watch Video »

This jump starts off well, with a wingsuit rodeo flying alongside a small tracking flock. Then Dan gets spun up on his Velo and has to deal with lots of line twists. A whole lot. Check out how he handles the situation. Watch Video »

There’s lots of space in the sky… until you get twisted up with line twists, spin out of control, then hit your friend under canopy, causing both of you to cutaway. Solution? More horizontal separation never hurts, but hitting another canopy does. Watch Video »

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 »

Having a low cutaway around 1,000 feet is never fun, neither is having 6 solid line twists on your reserve. Good thing he had a Skyhook and could clear those line twists by 500ft. Which would you prefer: get stable before deploying your reserve or line twists on an open/flying reserve? Watch Video »

As if dealing with more line twists after cutting away wasn’t a nuisance, (possibly) losing your Velo 111 main and shattering your camera lens makes for an all-around expensive day of jumping. Watch Video »

Seems like Johnny Strange was a bit quick on his emergency procedures (wink, wink). What was he waiting for… the ground??! Check out his epic fight against some pretty daunting line twists — although this still doesn’t beat Brian Germain’s 80 seconds of line twists. Nice work on a valiant effort and a safe chop!...

Friday Freakout: Skydiver Nearly Breaks Neck

Ever get slammed by your canopy? WHABAM! If it hasn’t happened to you at least once (yet), you’re doing it wrong. Wait, no. Disregard. This hard opening left Steve Rivello dazed and confused with multiple herniated discs in his neck. I’m not a doctor, but something tells me that’ll really mess up your day. Canopy:... Watch Video »
