Friday Freakout: Skydiver Almost Entangles With Reserve Deployment On His Back

Friday Freakout: Skydiver Almost Entangles With Re...

Line twists aren’t much fun. Neither is a reserve deployment when you’re on your back — but it sure is great to have a parachute over your head as quickly as possible. Something tells me this could’ve been worse if he had a rear-facing GoPro mounted on the back of his helmet. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Skydiver Loses Helmet & GoPro During Malfunction, Gear Stolen By Locals

If there’s anything worse then having a nasty hard opening, line twists and a cutaway, it’s having your gear scattered across the sky and then bartering with the local South Africans to get your helmet and GoPro back. Fun times all around — or at least for the locals. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Skydiver Doesn’t Pull Parachute, Saved By CYPRES Fire!

Friday Freakout: Skydiver Doesn’t Pull Parachute...

No details were submitted with this video, but it gets spicy pretty quickly. This skydiver can’t seem to deploy his main canopy, resulting in a CYPRES save and a hard landing. By the looks of it, the pilot chute is still in the BOC after landing. What do you think happened? Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Low Pull. Two-Out. Roof Landing. Darwin Award.

Friday Freakout: Low Pull. Two-Out. Roof Landing. ...

What do you get when a skydiver with only 115 jumps decides to use a camera and impress a girl? A video with too many mistakes to mention. After everything that goes wrong, at least he remembers to collapse his slider, right?! Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: How NOT To Pack A Parachute

Friday Freakout: How NOT To Pack A Parachute

When you pay for a pack job, the last thing you’d expect is a step-through and a misrouted toggle (at least that’s what this looks like), yet that’s exactly what Tom got on his next jump. Money well spent :p Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: High Speed Parachute Malfunction Turns Into Two-Out

A pilot chute in tow turns into a two-out scenario when the RSL gets caught up. Despite the situation, our friend Stami manages to keep both of his handles like a boss! Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Spinning Skydive Student Pulls Reserve

Friday Freakout: Spinning Skydive Student Pulls Re...

Yes, this AFF student spins out of control. And yes, he pulls his reserve at 9,000 feet. But in his defense, the instructor unexpectedly induced the spin after telling the student to pull his reserve if he got separated for any reason (according to the videographer). Not. Cool. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: WTF?! Mangled Malfunction...

Friday Freakout: WTF?! Mangled Malfunction...

If there’s anything worse than exiting a plane at 8,500 feet and pulling by 7,000 feet, it’s having to play cat’s cradle with your lines as your parachute dives towards the earth. Therese managed to get the lines on both left risers around everything else, resulting in this mangled malfunction and many expletives. Watch Video »

I know we all make mistakes, but if skydivers like this are sharing the same airspace as the rest of us, they should at least be wearing home arrest-style ankle bracelets so we can keep track of them in the sky. The madness all starts off with a botched wingsuit rodeo, which turns into a... Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Altitude Awareness Fail, Double C...

If you can’t be bothered to check your alti at least once or don’t notice ground rush below 1,000 feet, then you should sell your rig and take up bowling or knitting. Unfortunately there’s no cure for stupid, but luckily there are AADs, and the double Cypres fire is what saved both of their asses.... Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Crunch! 60 MPH Parachute Collisio...

At 60 MPH (about 100 km/h), the crunching sound of this gnarly parachute collision is like watching a car crash… minus the airbags and bumpers. I’m sure both of these skydivers wish they’d tracked just a little bit further apart for more separation. Remember to keep your head up, eyes open, and cover yourself with... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Skydiver Stuffs Parachute Down Chest After Pilot Chute In Tow Malfunction!

A reserve ride after a pilot chute in tow turns into a sketchy two-out scenario, leaving this skydiver to think quickly: land the two-out, cutaway the main, or… stuff the inflating main parachute down his chest strap to keep it put? He opts for the latter! Now, let’s play some trivia. With a pilot chute... Watch Video »

This situation escalates quickly, from a simple angle jump to two skydivers being knocked out in freefall. The girl in the white jumpsuit loses control and hits another skydiver in the back of the head/neck. She gets knocked out for the duration of the jump and is saved by her Cypres. The “victim” also gets... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Cutaway At 1,000 ft + Reserve Line Twists. Balls!

Having a low cutaway around 1,000 feet is never fun, neither is having 6 solid line twists on your reserve. Good thing he had a Skyhook and could clear those line twists by 500ft. Which would you prefer: get stable before deploying your reserve or line twists on an open/flying reserve? Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Dirty Low AAD Fire & Tree Landing

Friday Freakout: Dirty Low AAD Fire & Tree Landing

Whooooaaaa Nelly. This is intense! Ben chops a tension knot, doesn’t have an RSL, and can’t find his reserve handle. Luckily his AAD gets his reserve out just in time to save him from the earth… AND he lands without injury despite landing in a tree. WHEW. When it doubt, whip it out. Glad you’re... Watch Video »

Have you ever been in the plane on the way to altitude and people by the door only open it halfway? Let this video serve as a reminder as to why, if the door is open, we gotta push that bad boy all the way up. More air for everyone, and in the event that... Watch Video »

In Soviet Russia, underwear soils you! From what I understand from this incident, her cutaway handle wouldn’t chop so she had to run her fingers up the cable housing to manually pull the cutaway cables. Without an AAD, she manages to deploy the reserve only a few seconds before impacting terra firma, and then lands... Watch Video »

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: 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 »
