Friday Freakout: High Bar BASE Jump Goes Horribly Wrong

Friday Freakout: High Bar BASE Jump Goes Horribly ...

Every time I see a BASE jump, I’m always thinking, “You know what this needs… more gymnastics. Particularly, the high bar!” It turns out Norwegian BASE jumper Richard Henriksen had the same thought and did just that. Unfortunately for him, the stunt goes horribly wrong and the high bar structure collapses at the edge of... Watch Video »

If there’s ever a time you’d soil your pants from a scary parachute malfunction, I’d say this is it — when your closing pin pops on exit, you have a horseshoe malfunction, and then get entangled in said horseshoe. Holy shit! Luckily Matt Englehart landed safely after clearing through the lines and chopping that mess.... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Crushing Canopy Collapse

Friday Freakout: Crushing Canopy Collapse

There are those unexpected moments when you suddenly yell “WTF!” out loud. This is one of those moments. One minute he’s coming in on final for a standard landing, the next minute he’s winded, gasping for air as he lie on the ground in shock from a 30 foot fall (give or take) due to... Watch Video »

We’ve all the seen edited footage of Jeb Corliss’ wingsuit crash on Table Mountain. But here’s raw, unedited footage most of you haven’t seen. The Miracle Man Corliss has recovered from this near-death experience, and still has 8 lives left — give or take a few. Just the thought of hitting a mountain in a... Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Trapped Altimeter, Hard One-Hande...

Some days things just don’t go your way. This poor skydiver was having one of those bad days. First, the freefly tube was spinning him around like a top. Then, his altimeter gets trapped in his risers on deployment. And finally, he steers one-handed and lands super hard in a ditch. In a situation like... Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Crazy Cliff Strike. Not Once, But...

Seeing as this is a BASE jump, it’s a pretty short jump and canopy ride. But try telling that to the BASE jumper after bashing himself into a wall not once, but TWICE! That shit’s gotta hurt. Ouch. Not something we advise trying — ever. But good on ‘em for keeping his cool and (we... Watch Video »

Videos like this don’t usually exist. The reason? Most people would be dead after hitting a canopy in freefall. The upper guy struck the lower guy with both hands on his way by in freefall. I’ve posted some collision close calls in the past, but this is as close as it gets and still living... Watch Video »

Usually milestone jumps are the exciting ones, you know, 100, 500, etc. This one is close to 800, but turned out jump number 790 at Summerfest was the one for the YouTube posterity — a snappy head down premature opening. Check your gear before every jump! ~Mel Video by Daniel Croft. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Skydivers/Pilot Escape Plane Before Crash

To say this story is intense would be an understatement. It’s 61 seconds of terror. In short, a skydiver’s reserve pops open in the door and rips off the tail of the plane. The remaining skydivers make it out before the plane goes into a violent spin, but the pilot gets trapped as the door... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Reserve Malfunction? Rip It Out... Literally!

Friday Freakout: Reserve Malfunction? Rip It Out.....

Whether you’re a skydiver or BASE jumper, PCA (Pilot Chute Assist) deployments can be fun. But it kinda sucks when you have to manually extract your reserve because it’s stuck in the container. I think the silver lining is that he was already on his back, which made it easier to spot the malfunction and... Watch Video »

Having a premature opening while sit flying and then hitting your friend is a really shitty way to start your weekend. Then again, it could’ve been worse, like this scary head down opening. Check your gear. Check your gear. Check your gear. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Close Collision. WTF Was That?!

Friday Freakout: Close Collision. WTF Was That?!

“WTF was that?” That, sir, was a skydiver in freefall buzzing your canopy. This is NOT the way to start learning CRW (canopy relative work). Just saying. Close call indeed, also keeping in mind that objects are closer than they appear with a wide angle lens. Reminds me of the “Canopy Collisions For Dummies” freakout... Watch Video »

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: Canopy Collisions For Dummies

So this video is basically some badass XRW proximity flying. Um, minus the wingsuit. And, er, take away any notion of planning. In fact, its nothing like that at all. Instead of being super cool, this is just super close. Like, WAY too freaking close. Live and learn… and maybe keep tracking in a situation... Watch Video »

This epic plane stall is definitely up there on the “holy shit” list, along with that terrifying plane stall in South Africa I posted a while ago. Except this plane fall down, go boom! Literally. Just watch… and wait… and don’t hold your breath for too long. Watch Video »

I can see it now… “Mommy, mommy, a man just flew past the window.” And the response, “How many times have I told you not to lie to mommy (slap)!?” Lol. But this skydiver was almost close enough for passengers to spot from the aircraft that flew right by him. Luckily he didn’t end up... Watch Video »

Word on the street is there’s been a new addition to the Style series. Now after the left turn/right turn, they’ve added a deployment move during the backloop. Or maybe Ken just had an unlucky premature opening on his 13th jump. Either way, don’t try this at home. Watch Video »

“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,...

Ever heard of a “very-last-SECOND” gear check? It’s not like a typical gear check that happens before you climb out. No, this one happens in the door and is usually performed by a friend who sees your d-bag and lines trailing out of your container. It consists of someone yanking you back in the plane...
