Friday Freakout: Low Cutaway, Open By 650 Feet!

Friday Freakout: Low Cutaway, Open By 650 Feet!

Kicking out a few solid line twists feels good. Having a low cutaway and an open reserve by 650 feet feels even better. Watch Video »

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 »
Friday Freakout: Bag Lock Fly-By!

Friday Freakout: Bag Lock Fly-By!

My idea of a typical fly-by involves a wingsuit and proper planning, not a skydiver whizzing by in freefall with bag lock. Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Skydiver Wears Wrong Parachute, P...

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 »

At the bottom end of Geoff’s Level 1 AFF jump, he deploys his main and has a bag lock. Watch the video to see how the situation gets handled by the instructor on his reserve side. According to Geoff, the fun wasn’t over once the video ends. The reserve deployment released the bag lock, giving... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Double Trouble Line Twists

Friday Freakout: Double Trouble Line Twists

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 »

Oh, that lovely moment during deployment when you look up and say, “FACK!” A step-through malfunction is guaranteed to make any deployment more interesting. Good job on staying calm, considering it was his first cutaway. Maybe revisit some packing principles though… or your packer! Watch Video »

Now this is how you retrieve your main after a cutaway!! You know you’re having a bad day when you cutaway from a pilot chute in tow and your bridle still wants to play. It gets WAY more interesting when he tows in his main! Whew! If only he re-packed it on the ride down. Watch Video »

Holy shitballs, Batman! I just soiled myself. Nothin’ like your bridle and d-bag wrapping around the strut of a helicopter to spice up a heli jump. Things get even spicier once the canopy starts to inflate. Scary stuff like this can be avoided with something as simple a gear checks. DOUBLE CHECK YOUR GEAR. If... Watch Video »

Surprise! You just packed yourself a malfunction before your canopy even opened. Go ahead and cutaway… that step-through isn’t going to fix itself the longer you wait. Watch Video »

Talk about GROUND RUSH! I can’t believe someone can hit the ground this hard and survive. My friend Liam Dunne of Deepseed is one lucky man. There are several factors that lead to this outcome, but the end result was a CYPRES save, intense ground rush, an 8 inch footprint in the ground, and surgery... Watch Video »

A double malfunction is a skydiver’s worst nightmare, no matter how experienced they are. With more than 7,000 jumps under his belt, Craig Stapleton’s nightmare came true after dumping his reserve into the mess above his head. But he miraculously lives to tell the tale after hitting the ground at 30 MPH. When everything goes... Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Wingsuit Malfunction, Can't Cutaw...

If there’s anything worse than trying to kick out of spinning line twists while in the confines of a wingsuit, it’s not being able to cutaway when you need to. At all. Not quite sure exactly what happened here, but the end result is a two-out and a happy landing. Watch Video »

While wingsuits are all the rage these days, it’s often overlooked that — should a series of events go wrong — you’re now falling toward the earth in a straitjacket. No matter how you slice it, a low deployment followed by a malfunction (without an RSL or AAD), several revolutions on your back, a head-down... Watch Video »

At a dropzone somewhere in Middle Earth, one skydiver did pitch his pilot chute through a loop of shock cord on his jacket. Holy horsehoe, Batman! With his reserve pilot chute entangled in the risers and the canopy turning, he makes a heroic effort to straighten it out before landing. We love happy endings to... Watch Video »

Damn this is entertaining. Remember Baywatch? Of course you do! Remember when a single skydive would last 5 minutes? Didn’t think so. Remember when we used to wear hockey helmets for skydiving? Neither do I, but The Hoff can make anything look good. In this Baywatch episode, David Hasselhoff has a near-death skydiving experience. Watch Video »

“Somebody call 411. This guy needs to get a clue.” Lol. Since Gerardo Flores has been ostracized by the skydiving community for the dumbest malfunction ever, Jhonathan Florez has created this hilarious parody of a ‘choo lace malfunction. Damn strings! I highly recommend watching the original “malfunction” video first before watching this.\ Watch Video »

This is by far the DUMBEST “malfunction” in skydiving history! Period. We all know how much damage a Category 5 hurricane can cause. Well Gerardo Flores is a Category 5 idiot! Watching this video actually makes me quite angry, but here’s the breakdown: 30 jumps (in 2 years??!!), wearing a GoPro with only 30 jumps... Watch Video »

A wingsuit, a burble and a slider-down opening with line dump at full speed. All rolled into one. That is all. No cutaway, but it sure looks like one helluva ride! For anyone interested in the details: he was flying a Tony Suit X-Bird, PD Spectre 97, 11.5 foot bridle, and a 30 inch PC.... Watch Video »

It’s not too often you get a 3-in-1 parachute malfunction. It starts off with two guys entangled in lines. Then one of them puts their canopy on spin cycle. And just as they untangle from the mess, he cuts away, ejecting himself back into freefall — which, I must admit, kinda looks like fun considering... Watch Video »
