Friday Freakout: 3-In-1 Parachute Wrap, Spin And Ejection

Friday Freakout: 3-In-1 Parachute Wrap, Spin And E...

It’s not too often you get a 3-in-1 parachute malfunction. It starts off with two guys entangled in lines. Then one of them puts their canopy on spin cycle. And just as they untangle from the mess, he cuts away, ejecting himself back into freefall — which, I must admit, kinda looks like fun considering... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: AFF Student's Pilot Chute In Tow

Friday Freakout: AFF Student's Pilot Chute In Tow

I’m not exactly sure how many jumps this AFF student had prior to this one, but it doesn’t matter, a pilot chute in tow is a scary malfunction for any skydiver. You know it’s a bad situation when you’re instructor screams “oh fuck!” The unstable deployment surely didn’t help, but it seems the bridle got... Watch Video »

Thermals are a paraglider’s wet dream. That is until your paraglider goes boom! Then that wet dream turns into wet underwear faster than you can say “oh shiiiii…” As the ground rush intensifies, the video cuts out — he didn’t think his GoPro was on, so he thought he was turning it on to film...

Friday Freakout: BASE Riser Disconnect Malfunction

Friday Freakout: BASE Riser Disconnect Malfunction

“Be conservative” says the ballsy Aussie who’s about to jump off a cliff into thick clouds. Needless to say, this jump is intense. Stick around ’til the end to see what a riser disconnect looks like as you spin into the river below. Whoops. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: 2 Parachutes, 1 Nasty Mess.

Friday Freakout: 2 Parachutes, 1 Nasty Mess.

Getting a leg wrapped up in your riser during deployment is definitely up there on the “ooooohhh fuuuucckk” list. Lets just say that the six-hundred-and-something square feet of trailing fabric probably wasn’t making this guy feel all warm and fuzzy inside — but a clean pair of underwear sure would.

Here’s a parachute malfunction without the “freakout.” A line over can really mess up your day (or was that a tension knot?), but Johnny Nashville Havron seems pretty cool about the situation — especially considering this might be his first cutaway. He fights it. He gives it the one-finger salute. He fights it some more.... Watch Video »

When you see 15 other parachutes opening, maybe it’s time to pull. Just a suggestion. Back tracking for 25 seconds and no alti check?? I call brain malfunction on this one, or maybe he just fell asleep, but he just keeps tracking on. And on. And on. All the way down to nearly 750ft, resulting... Watch Video »

Ever try to get down to a formation with your d-bag and lines bouncing around? Umm, that’s called a horseshoe and, contrary to Irish folklore, a horseshoe while skydiving is NOT lucky — it’s a malfunction! The key is to ignore the malfunction and arch harder. Oh, and dodge your friend who’s trying to dump... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Tandem Bag Lock Malfunction

Friday Freakout: Tandem Bag Lock Malfunction

How about a sketchy bag lock malfunction on a tandem jump? No thanks! This is a mess from the very first line stow — such is the brilliance of hindsight (and slow motion). Who else is thanking their lucky socks that they’ve never pitched a reserve on their back with someone strapped to their chest?... Watch Video »

Imagine jumping out of a pickup truck on the freeway, skidding to a slow grind, just before the rope tethering you to it snaps tight and jolts you to a halt. That’s pretty much what this trooper was feeling as he got hung up on his static line. With lines wrapped around his gear and... Watch Video »

There’s so much OMGWTF in this video, I don’t even know where to start, so let’s take it from the top. Stable exit and flying? Nope. Tracking at break-off? Nope. Canopy collision? Of course. Cutaway? Definitely (at least he threw both handles away ;-). Wearing cameras? Fuck yeah! Mario Galvan and Jose de Ines are... Watch Video »
GoPro-Ductions Presents: Wheels UP!

GoPro-Ductions Presents: Wheels UP!

It’s that time of year when all of the fun year-end videos start popping up. This edit from Parachute Montreal is a bit long, but it’s got everything from sit flying to head down, FS to swooping, a few malfunctions, and a little Gangnam Style! Perfect for a hump day lunch break. Watch Video »
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 »

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 »

If there’s ever a time you’d soil your pants from a scary parachute malfunction, I’d say this is it — when your closing pin pops on exit, you have a horseshoe malfunction, and then get entangled in said horseshoe. Holy shit! Luckily Matt Englehart landed safely after clearing through the lines and chopping that mess.... Watch Video »

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 »

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 »
Friday Freakout: Bridle Wrap. Bag Lock. Oh F*CK!

Friday Freakout: Bridle Wrap. Bag Lock. Oh F*CK!

Reaching around in a wingsuit to pull your pin when your bridle is wrapped around your hackey is a bit of a joy-killer. As is the resulting bag lock. Luckily for Walker Mackey his reserve plays nice and comes out clean. Bet that brought a smile to his face! Watch Video »

Skydiving is generally a happy place of fresh air, freedom, and fun. Except for the odd occasion when you’re plummeting towards the ground entangled in your pilot chute with a shit-ton of lines everywhere. Then the only thing coursing through your veins is fear, and the only thing running through your mind is “Fuuuuuck!” Watch Video »

This video seems out of a Chuck Jones cartoon of the Roadrunner and the Coyote, but it’s real. It happened in Konakova, Russia. A BASE jumper jumps off the top of a 400-foot (120 meter) electric tower, but his parachute fails. Miraculously, he survived the fall thanks to the powdered snow below. He broke his... Watch Video »
