Friday Freakout: Scary Horseshoe Malfunction + Entanglement

Friday Freakout: Scary Horseshoe Malfunction + Ent...

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 »

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 »
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 »

Skydiving is generally a happy place of fresh air, freedom, and fun. Except for the odd occasion when you’re plummeting towards the ground entangled in your pilot chute with a shit-ton of lines everywhere. Then the only thing coursing through your veins is fear, and the only thing running through your mind is “Fuuuuuck!” Watch Video »

Well, strap me in a red wingsuit and call me Santa Claus. It’s like Christmas for this lucky BASE jumper when his parachute opens clean from a horseshoe malfunction that he didn’t even notice! Gear checks, people. Gear checks. WARNING: You will cringe. Watch Video »
80 Seconds of Line Twists

80 Seconds of Line Twists

Holy line twists, Batman! Parachute test pilot Brian Germain does a high pull with a test canopy, immediately fighting line twists with a hefty spin. After 80 seconds of battling the line twists, Brian finally settles out and talks through the thought process of how to get yourself through a malfunction safely. It goes without... Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Premature Opening On Lucky Skydiv...

Word on the street is there’s been a new addition to the Style series. Now after the left turn/right turn, they’ve added a deployment move during the backloop. Or maybe Ken just had an unlucky premature opening on his 13th jump. Either way, don’t try this at home. Watch Video »

“Hmmm. I’m sure there’s something I’m meant to do in this situation? Arch harder? No, that’s not it. Something to do with ET? No, wait, EP… that’s it!” This guy is a model student, right up until his d-bag is bouncing around unopened and he forgets anything about Emergency Procedures. Oops. Almost 8 seconds later,...

Ever heard of a “very-last-SECOND” gear check? It’s not like a typical gear check that happens before you climb out. No, this one happens in the door and is usually performed by a friend who sees your d-bag and lines trailing out of your container. It consists of someone yanking you back in the plane...

OMG! This has to be one of the craziest/scariest tandem videos I’ve ever seen. Kinda makes me feel sick just watching it, but luckily this tandem instructor’s negligence ends without casualty. Long story short, this 80 year-old grandma does a tandem skydive for her birthday and nearly falls out of the harness because it’s not... Watch Video »
Intentional Cutaways. Many, Many Cutaways

Intentional Cutaways. Many, Many Cutaways

Cutaways are a strange thing… we don’t want to have them, but we also want to know all about them so we feel prepared if and when we ever have one. One way to prepare is to do an intentional cutaway on a system with a tertiary reserve like the one in this video, which... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: The Longest Malfunction In Skydiving History

Friday Freakout: The Longest Malfunction In Skydiv...

This has to be one of the longest parachute malfunctions I’ve ever seen. In fact, I made a sandwich halfway through it. Long story short, Niklas Daniel of AXIS Flight School intended to do a high altitude hop and pop to work on some canopy flocking, but got an interesting malfunction instead. Sure, a hook...

Friday Freakout: Skyhook Cutaway Saves Skydiver

Friday Freakout: Skyhook Cutaway Saves Skydiver

Having a collision in freefall after a cutaway is a really bad problem to have. Luckily for Brett Newman his Skyhook worked as advertised and saved his ass from a nasty collision after a cutaway… by only a few feet. Timing is everything, and the Skyhook delivered as promised. In case you didn’t realize just... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Pilot Chute in Tow + Cypres Save

Friday Freakout: Pilot Chute in Tow + Cypres Save

The Wingsuit Drummer has his first parachute malfunction, and a good one at that — a pilot chute in tow — which resulted in a delayed reaction, a Cypres save, and an open reserve by 500 feet! Next time, maybe don’t wait so long to fire your reserve. Just my two cents. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Scary Double Malfunction. Make It Stop!

Friday Freakout: Scary Double Malfunction. Make It...

Ground rush can be fun occasionally – except when it doesn’t actually stop. This German skydiver narrowly misses an early appointment with death when his lines snag on his container and the freebag gets entangled with the main. With a heroic effort to climb the lines, he manages to get the reserve out, lands hard,... Watch Video »

Although this AFF instructor-in-training seems a little nervous, there’s no reason he should’ve dumped this low. Line twists below 2,000 feet are a pain in the ass, but then chopping that low and having to deal with more line twists on your reserve really sucks! On the bright side, at least his main wasn’t too... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Bag Lock Is A Bitch

Friday Freakout: Bag Lock Is A Bitch

Now this is a tough day at the office for a skydiving videographer. Bag lock is a bitch, but this guy fights through this dirty malfunction and saves his own life. That calls for a beer (or 12) to celebrate! Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Tandem Skydive Goes Wrong

Friday Freakout: Tandem Skydive Goes Wrong

Talk about bad timing. Deploying your drogue while head down doesn’t seem like a good idea. Something bad might happen, like the drogue wrapping around your foot. At least this TI can sleep soundly at night knowing he didn’t fuck up as badly as this other tandem instructor. I’m sure some of you have an... Watch Video »

A little ground rush is fun from time to time, unless you just had a flat spin in your wingsuit followed by a cutaway and reserve pilot chute in tow. A double malfunction can really mess up your day. If you were in this situation, would you have given up on the line twists that... Watch Video »

This is the unofficial how-to video for “canopy proximity flying.” I’m not entirely sure if this was a wingsuit malfunction or a pilot error, but it turns into a shit show real quick. An unstable deployment. Nasty line twists. Avoiding a cliff strike by inches. Oh, and a vuvuzela horn blowing at 0:53. This guy’s... Watch Video »
