Project Orange: First-Ever CRW Canopy Fly Through

During Performance Designs’ Project Orange event at Z-Hills in October 2013, these CRW dawgs were able to accomplish something no one has ever done before. After building a 12-way formation and punching out the center of it, PDFT’s Ian Bobo flew his Peregrine through the formation. Behind this CRW formation is over 100 years of... Watch Video »

Designing Parachutes Is Super Easy. Just Ask PD.

It’s no secret Performance Designs makes some of the best canopies on the market, but who knew it was this easy?! Lots of Red Bull, playing with scissors, and a little fire. Everyone and their brother should be making parachutes. Watch Video »

Skydiver's Barrel Roll Landing Close To Ground

Skydiver's Barrel Roll Landing Close To Ground

What do you get when using your rears and harness close to the ground on a Velo 90? A barrel roll that scares the shit out of everyone watching. This must be more fun than the dizzying 1080 swoop I posted last week. Some might say Ryan has big balls for trying this, while others... Watch Video »
