Phew… only broken ribs, a concussion, a misplaced shoe, a missing sock, and a missed competition. Saied went against everyone’s advice and jumped in crappy conditions after a recent downsize, driven by the anxiousness to be ready for a competition in 3 days. So much for that. Glad we can all learn from his non-fatal... Watch Video »

Remember the SoFPiDaRF rules, people: safety third! At first I thought this is what a pond swoop was supposed to look like. Turns out I was wrong. If only he was half a second earlier, it would’ve been an epic swoop! Ok, more like 4 seconds. D’you see what happens when you use toggles? :p Watch Video »

Swoopstyle: Walking On Water

Swoopstyle: Walking On Water

It would be nice if Red Bull actually gave you wings and you could walk on water. It’s also nice to see that members of the Red Bull Skydive Team are human too; that they can’t walk on water ALL the time. Looks like they were having tons-o-fun swooping the pond, err, lake in Wolfgangsee,... Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Swooper Skips Pond Like Stone

Yeeeeah, so you know how you can skip stones on a pond. Well you’re not supposed to try that using your body as the stone. Not gonna lie, it’s very rare that anyone gets to be featured twice for a Friday Freakout, but this is the same “swooper” who was clotheslined by a wire fence.... Watch Video »
