Sketchy Demo Jump Into Bull Fighting Ring

Sketchy Demo Jump Into Bull Fighting Ring

If you’re gonna do a demo jump in Peru, you better make it exciting —like landing into a bull fighting ring surrounded by power lines, cars, mountains, bulls and thousands of spectators. Now that’s a demo jump. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: When Parachutes Collide… Almost.

Friday Freakout: When Parachutes Collide… Almost...

Unless you’re into CRW, the purpose of tracking away at break-off is to gain horizontal separation so that you DO NOT collide with your friends on opening (or come close enough that you soil your pants). When in doubt, blame the booties ;) Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Skydiver Hangs From Plane By Seat...

Although this may not be part of your “standard” gear check, please take the time to make sure you’re not connected to the aircraft by your seatbelt before you exit — especially when your friends are telling you to “STOP!” At least it wasn’t an instructor hanging from the plane like this other incident.

Friday Freakout: BASE Jumper Survives 400 ft. Impact, Like Wile E. Coyote

Friday Freakout: BASE Jumper Survives 400 ft. Impa...

This video seems out of a Chuck Jones cartoon of the Roadrunner and the Coyote, but it’s real. It happened in Konakova, Russia. A BASE jumper jumps off the top of a 400-foot (120 meter) electric tower, but his parachute fails. Miraculously, he survived the fall thanks to the powdered snow below. He broke his... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Another Wild Parachute Wrap

Friday Freakout: Another Wild Parachute Wrap

What starts out as a solid 4-stack CRW (canopy relative work) rotation by Team Hypoxia quickly turns into four good friends trying to kill each other in another wild parachute wrap. Surprisingly, this mess only resulted in one cutaway. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Crunch! 60 MPH Parachute Collision

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: 2 Skydivers Knocked Out From Collision, Saved By Cypres!

Friday Freakout: 2 Skydivers Knocked Out From Coll...

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: Skydiver Passes Out From Hypoxia In Freefall

Friday Freakout: Skydiver Passes Out From Hypoxia ...

What’s it like to pass out from hypoxia in freefall? Well, it starts with 5 skydivers at 22,000 feet and only 4 oxygen masks. Those numbers just don’t add up. After exiting the plane, one of the skydivers becomes unconscious in freefall; his 2 friends have to stabilize him and deploy his main parachute. When... Watch Video »

This laser jump was going according to plan, with nothing but fun and smiles… until one of these skydivers has a snappy premature opening on his back (with toilet paper in his hand, no less). The situation got worse: his reserve deployed into his main canopy, which was still tangled around him when he cutaway.... Watch Video »

Well this makes for one hell of an exciting AFF Level 2 jump, and serves as a friendly reminder that ANY camera on your helmet can be a snag hazard, not just a GoPro. In this case, the student’s pilot chute wraps around her instructor’s “traditional” camera as she deploys. Luckily she notices what’s going... Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Crazy Canopy Collision, Double Cu...

There’s lots of space in the sky… until you get twisted up with line twists, spin out of control, then hit your friend under canopy, causing both of you to cutaway. Solution? More horizontal separation never hurts, but hitting another canopy does. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Bad BASE Exit = Terrifying Bridle Wrap

Friday Freakout: Bad BASE Exit = Terrifying Bridle...

As the saying goes, timing is everything… especially in BASE when your life depends on it. I’m sure this wasn’t his best exit; in fact, it was probably the most terrifying exit of his life. But he lived to tell the story. Don’t do this, live and learn, and stay alive. Watch Video »

When kamikaze skydivers join a tracking jump, people (almost) die! Luckily this didn’t end in fatality, but it really doesn’t get much closer than this. Read more about tracking incidents here, and please stay safe out there. Watch Video »

Well, it’s more like the plane almost hit the skydiver. Either way, our friends at Team Skyscrapers had some underwear to change after this close call. Watch Video »

Yes, a loose BOC can lead to a premature opening. True story! Check. Your. Gear. People. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Head Down Premature Openings Suck!

Friday Freakout: Head Down Premature Openings Suck...

A loose BOC + unsecured pilot chute + head down flying = snappy premature opening. Plus, jumping with Ben Nelson didn’t help the situation either. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: HOLY SH*T, That Was Close!

Friday Freakout: HOLY SH*T, That Was Close!

I bet both of these skydivers have never been so grateful for an off-heading opening. Phew! Zoo dive: 1, Death: 0. Watch Video »

There isn’t too much snow around the Perrine Bridge in the middle of July with 100 degree temps. So what’s a pro skier like Mike Wilson and his crew supposed to do when they have an idea to pull off a rail slide to BASE jump? Import ice, of course, and use a wood chipper... Watch Video »
