Friday Freakout: Student's Bag Lock... To Pull or Not to Pull?

Friday Freakout: Student's Bag Lock... To Pull or ...

“Hmmm. I’m sure there’s something I’m meant to do in this situation? Arch harder? No, that’s not it. Something to do with ET? No, wait, EP… that’s it!” This guy is a model student, right up until his d-bag is bouncing around unopened and he forgets anything about Emergency Procedures. Oops. Almost 8 seconds later,...

Friday Freakout: Double Trouble Parachute Malfunction

Friday Freakout: Double Trouble Parachute Malfunct...

Don’t know about you, but I’m seeing double watching this video. Double trouble. And not the good kind, like a pair of hot twins in freefly suits riding motorbikes. The bad kind, like when you chop your main and your reserve’s more twisted up than a pretzel. HOL-Eeeee shit! But at least he didn’t land... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Scary Double Malfunction. Make It Stop!

Friday Freakout: Scary Double Malfunction. Make It...

Ground rush can be fun occasionally – except when it doesn’t actually stop. This German skydiver narrowly misses an early appointment with death when his lines snag on his container and the freebag gets entangled with the main. With a heroic effort to climb the lines, he manages to get the reserve out, lands hard,... Watch Video »
The Mystery Cutaway. Whodunit?

The Mystery Cutaway. Whodunit?

Remember to protect and check your handles, folks! Phil of The Bombdigity, a 4-way formation skydiving team, had his cutaway handle mysteriously dislodged and fly off into the blue. Whodunit?! Way to stay cool, calm and collected Phil… unlike this other unintentional cutaway mishap, which happens to be my fave Friday Freakout of all time. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: AFF Instructor Low Pull + Malfunction

Friday Freakout: AFF Instructor Low Pull + Malfunc...

Although this AFF instructor-in-training seems a little nervous, there’s no reason he should’ve dumped this low. Line twists below 2,000 feet are a pain in the ass, but then chopping that low and having to deal with more line twists on your reserve really sucks! On the bright side, at least his main wasn’t too... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Wingsuit Flat Spin + Double Malfunction

Friday Freakout: Wingsuit Flat Spin + Double Malfu...

A little ground rush is fun from time to time, unless you just had a flat spin in your wingsuit followed by a cutaway and reserve pilot chute in tow. A double malfunction can really mess up your day. If you were in this situation, would you have given up on the line twists that... 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?! He’s lucky all this cost was a reserve pack job and a new... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Parachute Opens, Catches On Plane Tail

Friday Freakout: Parachute Opens, Catches On Plane...

As the saying goes, “Plan the jump and jump the plan.” But sometimes a jump just doesn’t go according to plan. Like when your parachute deploys in the door and wraps around the tail of the plane, tossing you around like a puppet on strings. This video, as well as the premature parachute opening on...

Friday Freakout: Angry Birds vs. Paraglider

Friday Freakout: Angry Birds vs. Paraglider

Don’t you hate it when you’re paragliding through the Indian Himalayas and a couple of real-life angry birds come along and mess your shit up? I sure do. But this Ruskie handles it like a champ. After a reserve ride and hard landing, all is well. Even the “angry bird” survives. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: GoPro Camera Catches On Reserve Handle

Friday Freakout: GoPro Camera Catches On Reserve H...

Don’t get me wrong, I love GoPro! But GoPro cameras and metal handles don’t play nice with each other — especially when freeflying. Yet another reminder to watch those GoPros and protect your handles. On the bright side, at least she didn’t lose her reserve handle. What’s your take on GoPros and/or metal handles? Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Crazy Canopy Wrap With Paraglider

Friday Freakout: Crazy Canopy Wrap With Paraglider

Infinity tumbling on a paraglider can be a lot of fun. Especially when you first learn how… until you try one too many tumbles and become gift wrapped in your own canopy. David, you’re one lucky guy; that was quite the mess you were in! Good job on pulling your reserve with your arm caught... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Bow-Tie Line Over Malfunction

Friday Freakout: Bow-Tie Line Over Malfunction

If you’re going to have a malfunction and cutaway, the least you could ask for is a perfectly shaped bow-tie line over. But forget about this handsome looking mal; there were some pretty interesting emergency procedures going on here — watch his hands closely (WTF??). But at the end of the day he landed safely...

Friday Freakout: Nasty Horseshoe Malfunction Around Foot

Friday Freakout: Nasty Horseshoe Malfunction Aroun...

Nothing like a nasty horseshoe malfunction wrapping around your foot and ruining your clean pair of underwear at the same time, then cutting away while upside down and landing with the main still in the bag and wrapped around your foot. Now he’ll need a reserve re-pack and a new pair of underwear. Shitty deal... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Shit, Meet Fan

Friday Freakout: Shit, Meet Fan

All goes well until it’s time to dump (no pun intended), then shit hits the fan. Pilot chute entanglement. Shit. Reserve pilot chute entanglement. Shit. Reserve freebag entanglement. Shit! Did I mention shit hits the fan? As if his day couldn’t get any worse, watch ’til the very end for the final bit of “oh... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: "Mr. Bill" Goes Horribly Wrong

Friday Freakout: "Mr. Bill" Goes Horribly Wrong

Three words come to mind: cutaway, shit and F*CK — not particularly in that order. Glenda and Phil attempt a Mr. Bill which goes horribly wrong. If you don’t know what “Mr. Bill” is, please don’t try this at home. Have you ever successfully pulled off a Mr. Bill? Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Scary Head Down Opening, Then Loses Helmet

Friday Freakout: Scary Head Down Opening, Then Los...

Head down opening with line twists: check. Cutaway your Icarus Crossfire 2 109: check. Dump your reserve with line twists: check. Lose your helmet and GoPro from 10,000 feet: check. Find your helmet and GoPro that landed in a field… in one piece and working like new: priceless. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Skydiver Nearly Impacts Mountain!

Friday Freakout: Skydiver Nearly Impacts Mountain!

Holy &$@%, this is scary! This video should emphasize the importance of a proper spot... especially over mountains. Audidbles and AADs didn't help in this situation because they were set for a landing area at a much lower altitude. There has been some debate over whether he should've used his reserve (textbook emergency procedure) instead of his main (instinct). Thoughts? Watch Video »
Cameraman Cut-Away With Skyhook

Cameraman Cut-Away With Skyhook

After trying to clear tension knots on his JVX 86 and losing nearly 2,000 feet in altitude, this cameraman chops his main and – thanks to his Skyhook – has his reserve deployed in a split-second. Do you use a standard RSL, Skyhook or nothing at all… and why (or why not)? Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Cutaway Handle Pulled On Exit

Friday Freakout: Cutaway Handle Pulled On Exit

The look on this guy’s face is priceless when he finds out his friend has accidentally pulled his cutaway handle on exit. He has no choice but to go for a ride on his reserve; a safe landing and a funny mug shot in an otherwise scary situation. How many reserve rides have you had? Watch Video »
