Friday Freakout: Parachute Explodes In Half. Aww, Shitty.

Friday Freakout: Parachute Explodes In Half. Aww, ...

Aww, shitty. Don’t you just hate when your parachute explodes in half! I’m not entirely sure why he chopped though. I mean, it’s there, it’s square (sort of), and can probably flare. Wouldn’t you try to land this? (that’s a rhetorical question) Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Dirty Low Pull + PC Fumble = Tree Landing

Friday Freakout: Dirty Low Pull + PC Fumble = Tree...

Who needs a parachute when you can land in trees?! After all, Gary Connery landed his wingsuit without a parachute into cardboard boxes, so what’s the big deal? But seriously, this BASE jumper was lucky to end up where he did — stuck between a rock, a tree and and a hard place. Fumbling your... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Trapped Altimeter, Hard One-Handed Landing

Friday Freakout: Trapped Altimeter, Hard One-Hande...

Some days things just don’t go your way. This poor skydiver was having one of those bad days. First, the freefly tube was spinning him around like a top. Then, his altimeter gets trapped in his risers on deployment. And finally, he steers one-handed and lands super hard in a ditch. In a situation like... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Crazy Cliff Strike. Not Once, But TWICE!

Friday Freakout: Crazy Cliff Strike. Not Once, But...

Seeing as this is a BASE jump, it’s a pretty short jump and canopy ride. But try telling that to the BASE jumper after bashing himself into a wall not once, but TWICE! That shit’s gotta hurt. Ouch. Not something we advise trying — ever. But good on ‘em for keeping his cool and (we... Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: 3 Parachutes + 1 Skydiver = Nasty...

Man, you can never have too much nylon! Too right! And not only does he survive being wrapped up in three canopies (including his reserve), but he steers that mess with his right hand and his left foot to land safely in a field. True story. What a BADASS! Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Pilot Chute Catches On Plane. Watch Your Handles!

Friday Freakout: Pilot Chute Catches On Plane. Wat...

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: Skydiver vs. Parachute, Deadly Collision In Freefall

Friday Freakout: Skydiver vs. Parachute, Deadly Co...

Videos like this don’t usually exist. The reason? Most people would be dead after hitting a canopy in freefall. The upper guy struck the lower guy with both hands on his way by in freefall. I’ve posted some collision close calls in the past, but this is as close as it gets and still living... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: BASE Rollover Goes Really, Really Bad

It turns out doing a rollover off a bridge CAN be hazardous to your health. Luckily water is good for your health, especially when it breaks your fall. Watch Video »

[#SFW] Friday Freakout: Snappy Head Down Premature...

Usually milestone jumps are the exciting ones, you know, 100, 500, etc. This one is close to 800, but turned out jump number 790 at Summerfest was the one for the YouTube posterity — a snappy head down premature opening. Check your gear before every jump! ~Mel Video by Daniel Croft. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Skydiver Breaks Leg. Snap! Crackle! Pop!

Friday Freakout: Skydiver Breaks Leg. Snap! Crackl...

Getting femured sucks, especially when you’re not even swooping. If you’re going to play chicken with the earth, just remember that it will win. Every time. What exactly happened here? Did he grab his front risers too low? Discuss. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Reserve Malfunction? Rip It Out... Literally!

Friday Freakout: Reserve Malfunction? Rip It Out.....

Whether you’re a skydiver or BASE jumper, PCA (Pilot Chute Assist) deployments can be fun. But it kinda sucks when you have to manually extract your reserve because it’s stuck in the container. I think the silver lining is that he was already on his back, which made it easier to spot the malfunction and... Watch Video »

Having a premature opening while sit flying and then hitting your friend is a really shitty way to start your weekend. Then again, it could’ve been worse, like this scary head down opening. Check your gear. Check your gear. Check your gear. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Skydiver Hits Power Lines... And Survives!

Friday Freakout: Skydiver Hits Power Lines... And ...

You’ve probably seen videos where skydivers get seriously messed up by powerlines. A bad spot, an off landing, a teeny bit of target fixation and BOOM! But for this guy they were the perfect landing spot – he swapped certain death for a giant wedgie and lived to fly another day. I’d say that’s a... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Premature Opening On Lucky Skydive No. 13

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 »
Friday Freakout: Swooper Crashes Into Plane

Friday Freakout: Swooper Crashes Into Plane

Unfortunately this swooper thought he was at a swoop comp and mistook the plane for a gate. Admittedly, I was disappointed the gate, err, plane didn’t make the “woop-woop” sound… at least so that he thought he made the gates. This is not recommended. And always remember: bones can heal, but the repairs to a... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Swooping. Low Turn. Femured. Ouch.

Friday Freakout: Swooping. Low Turn. Femured. Ouch...

Swooping and low turns don’t go well together. Gravity and broken femurs do though. Stay away from the latter… it’s not a good combo. Unless you’re one of those “chicks dig scars” kinda guys. Even then, I don’t recommend it. Just ask this guy. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Wingsuit Crash Landing Into Trees

Friday Freakout: Wingsuit Crash Landing Into Trees

You win some, you lose some. It turns out wingsuit BASE jumping can be real monkey business… especially when you have to climb down the tree you just landed in. But I guess climbing down is better than hanging around in a tree swing like this crazy Russian after a dirty low pull. Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Student's Parachute Rips In Half!

[Here is the story that came along with this video that was sent to us]: Let me know if you think there’s anything wrong with the story behind this mess. Both of these skydivers were turned away at a DZ for wearing a camera with less than 20 jumps each, so they found another DZ... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: CRW. Clouds. Cutaway.

Friday Freakout: CRW. Clouds. Cutaway.

Doing CRW (canopy relative work) in clouds probably wasn’t the wisest decision these two skydivers ever made. It’s a bit like doing a low hook turn blindfolded. In fact, thinking about it, that may even be safer. Watch Video »

Don’t know about you, but I’m seeing double watching this video. Double trouble. And not the good kind, like a pair of hot twins in freefly suits riding motorbikes. The bad kind, like when you chop your main and your reserve’s more twisted up than a pretzel. HOL-Eeeee shit! But at least he didn’t land... Watch Video »
