Incredible Inspiration: Corp. Todd Love Finds His ...

Skydiving and the wind tunnel seem easily accessible for most of us… who have both arms and legs. Corporal Todd Love returned from the war in Afghanistan with only one arm — he has no legs and his left arm was amputated below the elbow. BUT, incredibly, Todd has found his wings and can enjoy...

Peace of Mind = Sunset + Cypres + Skydive Expo

Peace of Mind = Sunset + Cypres + Skydive Expo

I’ve never seen CYPRES tubes and the Skydive Expo look this beautiful. And the music makes me think of Zihuatanejo, like in Shawshank Redemption. The truth is, this is a stunning tribute to a company that literally saves skydivers’ lives, and helps us feel even more peace when we fly in skies like these. Beautiful.... Watch Video »

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...

Just another day at the office for Niklas Daniel of AXIS Flight School — the same guy responsible for setting his parachute on fire and skydiving with a... Watch Video »
Skydiving... With A Bowling Ball!

Skydiving... With A Bowling Ball!

When Niklas Daniel isn’t setting his parachute on fire with gas and gun powder, he’s having fun in the sky (as if exploding canopies weren’t fun enough). Niklas got great footage of this off-site jump with a bowling ball at the 8th annual Mother Of All Boogies at Skydive Moab. Do you think it was... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Parachute Catches Fire, Goes BOOM!

Friday Freakout: Parachute Catches Fire, Goes BOOM...

Legendary skydive cinematographer Joe Jennings was asked to coordinate a burning parachute stunt for a music video. Normally they soak the parachute in gasoline and build an ignition switch. But the first attempt didn’t work, so they added gun powder and closed off the front cells to prevent the fuel from drying out too quickly.... Watch Video »
