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 »
Friday Freakout: Nasty Horseshoe Malfunction Around Foot

Friday Freakout: Nasty Horseshoe Malfunction Aroun...

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

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 Opening

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...

Friday Freakout: Scary Head Down Opening, Then Loses Helmet

Friday Freakout: Scary Head Down Opening, Then Los...

Head down opening with line twists: check. Cutaway your Icarus Crossfire 2 109: check. Dump your reserve with line twists: check. Lose your helmet and GoPro from 10,000 feet: check. Find your helmet and GoPro that landed in a field… in one piece and working like new: priceless. Watch Video »
Fun Cartwheel Exit, Ends Dazed And Confused

Fun Cartwheel Exit, Ends Dazed And Confused

This looks like a fun 3-way cartwheel exit… and then someone gets tossed out of the cartwheel, spinning uncontrollably. It’s all fun and games until you’re dazed and confused in freefall. I’m surprised they held it for as long as they did. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Skydiver Nearly Impacts Mountain!

Friday Freakout: Skydiver Nearly Impacts Mountain!

Holy &$@%, this is scary! This video should emphasize the importance of a proper spot... especially over mountains. Audidbles and AADs didn't help in this situation because they were set for a landing area at a much lower altitude. There has been some debate over whether he should've used his reserve (textbook emergency procedure) instead of his main (instinct). Thoughts? Watch Video »

Today’s April Fool’s edition of Friday Freakout is a collection of bloopers, mishaps and malfunctions over the years. This is dedicated to all the skydivers and BASE jumpers who are determined to “die another day.” Mark Twain once said, “Let us be thankful for the fools. But for them the rest of us could not...

Premature Parachute Opening on Exit

Premature Parachute Opening on Exit

This is an older clip from Fonsz Kriegsman at Skydive Teuge in the Netherlands. His buddy on the 4-way team has a premature opening on exit. Now I know some of you might be thinking — why didn’t he cut-away to get back into formation? Or was that just a really high hop and pop?... Watch Video »

This is a clip from America’s Funniest Home Videos of a grown man who cries before exit on his tandem skydive, and in the end he just can’t bring himself to do it. He does, however, give it a second try to regain a little bit of his pride. Watch Video »
