Friday Freakout: Skydiver Survives Double Parachute Malfunction!

Friday Freakout: Skydiver Survives Double Parachut...

A double malfunction is a skydiver’s worst nightmare, no matter how experienced they are. With more than 7,000 jumps under his belt, Craig Stapleton’s nightmare came true after dumping his reserve into the mess above his head. But he miraculously lives to tell the tale after hitting the ground at 30 MPH. When everything goes... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Wingsuit Malfunction, Can't Cutaway

Friday Freakout: Wingsuit Malfunction, Can't Cutaw...

If there’s anything worse than trying to kick out of spinning line twists while in the confines of a wingsuit, it’s not being able to cutaway when you need to. At all. Not quite sure exactly what happened here, but the end result is a two-out and a happy landing. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Low Wingsuit Cutaway, No AAD, Open By 500ft

Friday Freakout: Low Wingsuit Cutaway, No AAD, Ope...

While wingsuits are all the rage these days, it’s often overlooked that — should a series of events go wrong — you’re now falling toward the earth in a straitjacket. No matter how you slice it, a low deployment followed by a malfunction (without an RSL or AAD), several revolutions on your back, a head-down... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Snag Hazard, Horseshoe Malfunction, Hell No!

Friday Freakout: Snag Hazard, Horseshoe Malfunctio...

At a dropzone somewhere in Middle Earth, one skydiver did pitch his pilot chute through a loop of shock cord on his jacket. Holy horsehoe, Batman! With his reserve pilot chute entangled in the risers and the canopy turning, he makes a heroic effort to straighten it out before landing. We love happy endings to... Watch Video »
David Hasselhoff's 5-Minute Near-Death Skydiving Experience

David Hasselhoff's 5-Minute Near-Death Skydiving E...

Damn this is entertaining. Remember Baywatch? Of course you do! Remember when a single skydive would last 5 minutes? Didn’t think so. Remember when we used to wear hockey helmets for skydiving? Neither do I, but The Hoff can make anything look good. In this Baywatch episode, David Hasselhoff has a near-death skydiving experience. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: THE DUMBEST "MALFUNCTION". EVER. PERIOD.

Friday Freakout: THE DUMBEST "MALFUNCTION". EVER. ...

This is by far the DUMBEST “malfunction” in skydiving history! Period. We all know how much damage a Category 5 hurricane can cause. Well Gerardo Flores is a Category 5 idiot! Watching this video actually makes me quite angry, but here’s the breakdown: 30 jumps (in 2 years??!!), wearing a GoPro with only 30 jumps... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Parachute Sucked Into Wingsuit Burble

Friday Freakout: Parachute Sucked Into Wingsuit Bu...

A wingsuit, a burble and a slider-down opening with line dump at full speed. All rolled into one. That is all. No cutaway, but it sure looks like one helluva ride! For anyone interested in the details: he was flying a Tony Suit X-Bird, PD Spectre 97, 11.5 foot bridle, and a 30 inch PC.... Watch Video »
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.

Friday Freakout: First Cutaway... F*CK YOU Line Ov...

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 »

Friday Freakout: A Horseshoe Is NOT Lucky, It's A ...

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!

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, ...

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 »
