Friday Freakout: Skydiver Almost Hits Plane

Friday Freakout: Skydiver Almost Hits Plane

Skydivers and planes go together like parachutes and gravity… except when planes fly along jump run when it’s time to pull. It’s a good thing parachutes and gravity still work well together, because that’s the only thing stopping this guy from hitting the plane in freefall. Have you ever had a close call like this...

Friday Freakout: Dumb and Dumber, Dirty Low Pull

Friday Freakout: Dumb and Dumber, Dirty Low Pull

This is ninety seconds of dumb and dumber. At least he realized how dumb this was and hopefully learned from it. In other news, I’ve heard AADs save lives, and rumor has it that flaring helps for soft landings. I still think this insane dirty low pull is the lowest I’ve ever seen — it’s... 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 »
Friday Freakout: GoPro Camera Catches On Reserve Handle

Friday Freakout: GoPro Camera Catches On Reserve H...

Don’t get me wrong, I love GoPro! But GoPro cameras and metal handles don’t play nice with each other — especially when freeflying. Yet another reminder to watch those GoPros and protect your handles. On the bright side, at least she didn’t lose her reserve handle. What’s your take on GoPros and/or metal handles? Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Terrifying Plane Stall

Friday Freakout: Terrifying Plane Stall

This is the ultimate Friday Freakout. A paraplegic tandem skydive. A stalled plane in a corkscrew. A loose reserve handle. And scared skydivers. The first few things that come to mind are “oh f*ck” and “get out now!” So happy to see everyone land safely. That was pretty intense. Thanks to Frederik Potgieter for sharing... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: World's Fastest CRW Wrap

Friday Freakout: World's Fastest CRW Wrap

Canopy relative work 101: don’t do this. If you’re in to CRW and believe “it’s not a wrap without a cutaway,” this just goes to show you that not all wraps end in a reserve ride… and no lines were harmed in the making of this video. Have you ever had a wrap before, and... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Skydiving Nutshot

Friday Freakout: Skydiving Nutshot

I’m not sure what’s worse: taking a nutshot on a hybrid-gone-wrong or listening to this high-pitched background music — although it (kind of) suits the situation. At least he still finished the jump. Thanks to Greg Lu for sharing this hilarious clip. Wait for it… Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: AFF Student Loses Both Instructors

Friday Freakout: AFF Student Loses Both Instructor...

Poor Robi Lanana never did a tandem skydive, but Andre Stepsky got video of Robi’s first AFF jump (level 1) at Skydive DeLand, which didn’t exactly go according to plan. Both instructors lose their grip on exit, but luckily he remembered to arch like his life depended on it and the instructors eventually caught his... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Crazy Canopy Wrap With Paraglider

Friday Freakout: Crazy Canopy Wrap With Paraglider

Infinity tumbling on a paraglider can be a lot of fun. Especially when you first learn how… until you try one too many tumbles and become gift wrapped in your own canopy. David, you’re one lucky guy; that was quite the mess you were in! Good job on pulling your reserve with your arm caught... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Sit Fly Premature Deployment

Friday Freakout: Sit Fly Premature Deployment

Ansar Mohammed got a nice surprise — a premature deployment — while sit flying with Whit Bakers, Andre Stepsky and Joe “The German” at Skydive Sebastian in Florida. He’s lucky he wasn’t head down when this happened, like this scary head down opening. Yet another reminder to check your pilot chute and closing loop before... Watch Video »

Nothing like a nasty horseshoe malfunction wrapping around your foot and ruining your clean pair of underwear at the same time, then cutting away while upside down and landing with the main still in the bag and wrapped around your foot. Now he’ll need a reserve re-pack and a new pair of underwear. Shitty deal... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Mid-Air Collision

Friday Freakout: Mid-Air Collision

This is how accidents happen. Wait for it… wait for it… KAPOW! (insert Batman fight scene caption here). Luckily no morons were hurt during the making of this video — not badly at at least. You have to admit, with miles of open air, he does have pretty good aim. All jokes aside, please be... Watch Video »
Good Freeflying. Not-So-Good Landing.

Good Freeflying. Not-So-Good Landing.

Barliman has a good 2-way freefly skydive, but a not-so-good landing. The cover song for “Ice Ice Baby” makes up for it though, right? Or not. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Paraglider Cheats Death in Moab

Friday Freakout: Paraglider Cheats Death in Moab

The last thing a paraglider wants to see flash before their eyes as they ground launch off a cliff in Moab is their glider. I think the only thing that re-inflated his glider was the warm, moist air that came out of his pants. “Oh f**k. Ohhh, shit. Holy shit” sounds about right. This could’ve... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Low Hook Turn. Bad Idea.

Friday Freakout: Low Hook Turn. Bad Idea.

Don’t try this at home. Initiating a hook turn 100 feet lower than normal will get you a broken femur, a nice piece of titanium and a few screws in your leg. And if you do attempt to pull off a stunt like this, you may consider trying it at the end of the summer…... Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Shit, Meet Fan

All goes well until it’s time to dump (no pun intended), then shit hits the fan. Pilot chute entanglement. Shit. Reserve pilot chute entanglement. Shit. Reserve freebag entanglement. Shit! Did I mention shit hits the fan? As if his day couldn’t get any worse, watch ’til the very end for the final bit of “oh... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: "Mr. Bill" Goes Horribly Wrong

Friday Freakout: "Mr. Bill" Goes Horribly Wrong

Three words come to mind: cutaway, shit and F*CK — not particularly in that order. Glenda and Phil attempt a Mr. Bill which goes horribly wrong. If you don’t know what “Mr. Bill” is, please don’t try this at home. Have you ever successfully pulled off a Mr. Bill? Watch Video »

Note to self: Don’t roll backwards through risers to celebrate a good jump! Chris Grissom was lucky enough to fight his way through this nasty double malfunction and walk away unharmed. I’ll bet $20 he doesn’t know how to speak Spanish… this mal just scared the English right out of him. Blue skies and soft(er)... Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: BASE Jumper Strikes Cliff On Open...

We all make mistakes, and Norwegian BASE jumper Hans Lange is no different. Despite dumping too close to the cliff, striking the cliff, breaking his leg and getting stuck in a tree, Hans was a pretty good sport about the whole thing; even poking fun at himself… “What an imbecile!” Catch more of the “Destroyed...
