Friday Freakout: BASE Rollover Goes Really, Really Bad

Friday Freakout: BASE Rollover Goes Really, Really...

It turns out doing a rollover off a bridge CAN be hazardous to your health. Luckily water is good for your health, especially when it breaks your fall. Watch Video »

[#SFW] Friday Freakout: Snappy Head Down Premature...

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

Friday Freakout: Skydivers/Pilot Escape Plane Befo...

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 »
Friday Freakout: Sit Fly Premature Opening Hits Skydiver

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 »
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: Canopy Collisions For Dummies

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 »
Friday Freakout: Plane Stalls, Falls Down, Goes Boom!!!

Friday Freakout: Plane Stalls, Falls Down, Goes Bo...

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 »
Friday Freakout: BIG Airplane Misses Skydiver In Freefall

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 »
Friday Freakout: Premature Opening On Lucky Skydive No. 13

Friday Freakout: Premature Opening On Lucky Skydiv...

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,...

Friday Freakout: Check Yourself Before You Wreck Y...

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...

Friday Freakout: Plane Stalls, Skydivers Narrowly Miss Tail

Friday Freakout: Plane Stalls, Skydivers Narrowly ...

So my idea of a shitty situation goes something like this: plane stalls on jump run. Skydivers get ejected. Plane’s tail narrowly misses skydivers by inches (or less). WOW, these guys are lucky. At least it didn’t end like this terrifying plane stall, or their parachutes didn’t catch on the tail like this guy. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Low Pull Contest. Who Wins?!

Friday Freakout: Low Pull Contest. Who Wins?!

“Let’s have a low pull contest. You go first and I’ll get it all on tape.” That was the first mistake. 4-way staggered exit off a cliff beside a waterfall. That was the second mistake. But the REAL problem here is that the first guy pulled too soon. Er, I mean, the last guy pulled... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: BASE Jumper Survives Impact Off 650ft Bridge

Friday Freakout: BASE Jumper Survives Impact Off 6...

Some of you might find this a bit disturbing to watch, but luckily this BASE jumper survives after hitting the water from a dirty low pull. If this was a low pull contest, I’m pretty sure he won. Don’t forget to pull, people. It’ll save your life. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: 1930s Parachute "Test" Off Cliff

Friday Freakout: 1930s Parachute "Test" Off Cliff

Apparently the role of a parachute test pilot in the 1930s was a lot more hardcore/crazy than it is today. It looks like cliff strikes and near certain death was part of the job description back then. “If it lets you down, it’ll be a great success. If not, you get a new parachute absolutely...

Friday Freakout: Student's Parachute Rips In Half!

[Here is the story that came along with this video that was sent to us]: Let me know if you think there’s anything wrong with the story behind this mess. Both of these skydivers were turned away at a DZ for wearing a camera with less than 20 jumps each, so they found another DZ... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Skydiving Collision CLOSE Call

Friday Freakout: Skydiving Collision CLOSE Call

Wow, that was way too close for comfort! Kenneth and his friend narrowly miss each other in what could’ve been a nasty crash while flying head down in Sweden. But thanks to the fetal position, they were both lucky this time — unlike these other guys who followed through on their mid-air collision. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: How NOT To Jump Off A Bridge

Friday Freakout: How NOT To Jump Off A Bridge

Here’s a lesson from Bridge Day (1992) on how NOT to jump off a bridge! Tossing the pilot chute between his legs probably wasn’t the smoothest move he’s pulled off to date. Not to mention cutting away from an 880-foot BASE jump. Then again, what do I know… he saved his own life. What’d you... Watch Video »
