Friday Freakout: Surprise!... Canopy Collision

Friday Freakout: Surprise!... Canopy Collision

Losing your helmet in freefall is never fun (watch closely at the 0:03 mark). Neither is a canopy collision/wrap immediately after dumping your main. This video is from the good ‘ol days — 1989 — back when, apparently, tracking away at break-off was only a suggestion. Oh well, nice video. Watch Video »
The Upskirt View of a Canopy Flock

The Upskirt View of a Canopy Flock

All you gear sluts out there surely remember the rad skull and crossbones SkyArt canopy I posted back in September. Well here’s another upskirt view of Team Off Track’s sexy SkyArt canopies from Icarus Canopies (by NZ Aerosports). The canopy design competition ends tomorrow (October 19th)… so hurry up and submit your design on Icarus’... View Photo »
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...

There’s not much to say… other than I wish I was flying in this golden sky with these skydivers. Photo by Trond R. Teigen. When and where was your most memorable sunset jump? View Photo »
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 »

Skydiver Flies Straight Into Blimp

Skydiver Flies Straight Into Blimp

Just when you think you’ve seen everything. This guy could’ve landed anywhere on the DZ but flies his canopy straight into the side of a giant MetLife blimp… and walks away without a scratch. What do you think: target fixation, asleep at the toggles or just a little, um, slow? Watch Video »
Insane Red Bull Air Force Wingsuit Fly-By

Insane Red Bull Air Force Wingsuit Fly-By

Looks like the boys from the Red Bull Air Force had a blast at the 2011 Red Bull Aviation Training Camp, dubbed “Kirby Camp.” Andy Farrington shared some of his first-hand footage of the aerial shenanigans. Watch this clip from start to finish; you won’t want to miss Kirby buzzing under the flock of wingsuits... Watch Video »
Cool Military Truck Drop From Airplane

Cool Military Truck Drop From Airplane

Express delivery! Ok, so this isn’t directly related to skydiving or BASE jumping or paragliding. But it’s a cool demo of how the military drops four Humvee’s on the ground to their troops. I can only imagine how big the parachutes must be to handle this wingload. Watch Video »

Ski BASE Jumping by Shane McConkey

The legend, Shane McConkey, ski BASE jumping off some amazing cliffs in Bella Coola, BC. Ski-BASE opened up a whole new world of extreme skiing and BASE jumping for Shane. “There are a lot of lines that are really esthetic; really cool-looking lines that you can’t do, because it ends in a big giant cliff....

A Tribute To The Crazy Ones

A Tribute To The Crazy Ones

Here’s to the crazy ones; a tribute to the misfits, rebels, troublemakers, round heads in square holes, and the ones who see things differently. This clip from Free Air Adventures is a cool collection of skydiving, BASE jumping, wingsuit proxy flying, paragliding and more. Them, them… Watch Video »
Skydiver Swoops Under Bridge on Freeway

Skydiver Swoops Under Bridge on Freeway

This is a great clip from a few years ago of a skydiver from a DZ in Brazil called Skydive Radical Center (true story) swooping under a bridge on the freeway. Watch Video »
Funny 'Skydiving Car' Commercial

Funny 'Skydiving Car' Commercial

A clever commercial with a clip from Joe Jennings’ “Good Stuff” DVD where four skydivers go for a ride in a convertible at 13,000 feet. It’s a good thing they let the top down. Watch Video »
PD Factory Team Swooping Competition

PD Factory Team Swooping Competition

The PD Factory Team kicking ass and taking names at a swooping comp in Spain. To a wuffo, this swooping might be cool; impressive at best. But to a skydiver who understands the amount of talent required to fly a canopy like that, it’s mind blowing. Watch Video »
Short (But Sweet) Winter BASE Jump

Short (But Sweet) Winter BASE Jump

This BASE jumper catches a bit of fresh air on this short, but sweet winter BASE jump. Fortunately he’s not in freefall long enough to get cold. Watch Video »
Insane Skydiver Holds Parachute In Hands

Insane Skydiver Holds Parachute In Hands

Greg Gasson, the same guy who did the plane-to-plane skydive, takes it up a notch by holding his rig in his hands during freefall. This seems pretty insane to me, but we all have our own reasons for stepping out of the door. Where do you draw the line? Watch Video »

What do you get when you have a skydiver (well, it’s a BASE rig) holding on to a paraglider from only 900 feet? Watch to find out… Watch Video »
BASE Jumping Dog?!

BASE Jumping Dog?!

Wow. Norway really does breed BASE jumpers, even… their dogs?! So let me get this straight: these two Norwegian girls have a “project” that involves a barking-activated rig which they put on their dog before it voluntarily jumps off a building. I can just see PETA going apeshit over this. What do you think: fake? Watch Video »
