Throwback Thursday: The Eloy Crew, Vol. 1 #TBT

Sick of all the angle flying and dynamic freeflying nowadays? Yeah, me neither, but check out “The Eloy Crew, Vol. 1.” I have no idea how old this footage is from Skyventure Arizona, but it’s all sorts of awesome. #TBT Watch Video »
Throwback Thursday: The Parachute Testers

Throwback Thursday: The Parachute Testers

In Soviet Russia, parachute tests you! Cheers to these trailblazers and their crazy antics while testing parachutes back in the day (Soviet Union, circa 1980s). Apparently all it took back then was a little courage and facial fur. #tbt Watch Video »

For all you new skydivers out there, listen up and take notes. These old school skydiving safety procedures could save your life one day. Just remember: use common sense; down wind landings are for experts only; when in doubt, slap someone’s ass before exit. Watch Video »
Thursday Throwback: Yosemite BASE Jumping In 1980

Thursday Throwback: Yosemite BASE Jumping In 1980

Probably not the best exits I’ve ever seen, but what can you expect from a bunch of skydivers trying to BASE jump off El Capitan in Yosemite back in 1980. I still don’t think anything beats this other BASE jumping footage with round parachutes back in the day. That’s just bat-shit crazy!! Watch Video »

Wow. Just, wow. Pink spandex, frap hats and plastic food items. Flying microphones, guitars, and “baker man baking bread” in freefall. I feel like I’m having some kind of weird trippy retro skydiving dream! But I have to admit I enjoyed the tune, including the Mary Poppins cameo and a mid-flight trumpet. Definitely made me...

Freefly History: X-Games ESPN Coverage 1997

Skydiving history, right here! The X-Games coverage of the freefly competition in 1997 between Z Airtime, the Fly Boyz, and the Freefly Clowns. Not the time of belly-mounted reserves or anything, but the time of loud jumpsuits and antics on the podium. Ok, so the antics haven’t changed a whole lot. Super cool snapshot into... Watch Video »

OMG! THIS is hilarious skydiving history right here, my friends. In 1984, a group of jumpers re-made the skydiving version of Van Halen’s song “Jump.” Sure, it’s pretty easy to edit videos nowadays, but these guys did it when it wasn’t. And it’s awesome! Nobody’s wearing a helmet, and everyone has a dirty stache and... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: 1930s Parachute "Test" Off Cliff

Friday Freakout: 1930s Parachute "Test" Off Cliff

Apparently the role of a parachute test pilot in the 1930s was a lot more hardcore/crazy than it is today. It looks like cliff strikes and near certain death was part of the job description back then. “If it lets you down, it’ll be a great success. If not, you get a new parachute absolutely...

From The Archives: Skydiving In 1978

From the archives, here’s a throwback to the classic 1970s film “Sky Dive!” by Carl Boenish — a leading skydive photographer of the era. This historical flick was shot on original 16 mm film. No, not a 16 GB memory card. Film, dammit! If you’re looking for some entertainment, be sure to check out the... Watch Video »
