Is This The Best Skyvan Exit Ever?

That awkward moment when there’s a human stampede in the skyvan, people get trampled on, and your only option is to crawl out of the skyvan — literally —to try and catch the formation. This is quite possibly the best skyvan exit ever. Watch Video »

Konstantine had a premature opening during Skydive Chicago’s Summerfest 2013. The only problem… he was supposed to be in the base for the Illinois State Head-Up big way formation record! No worries though, Rook Nelson pulls a “put me in coach” and saves the day. They got the record on the first jump the next... 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 »

Now this is what I call a really premature opening. Chester’s main pin and d-bag popped out on the ride up in the Sherpa at Summerfest — on a 33-way “no jumpsuit BFR” (Big F’n Round), nonetheless. As skydivers, jump tickets are more important than basic necessities like food and rent. So rather than waste... Watch Video »

[#SFW] Summerfest Is The Breast Boogie Ever!

Sorry, I get easily distracted (no thanks to my ADHD) by shiny objects and breasts. What better way to wind down Summerfest Week than with a hot French girl riding a wingsuit rodeo in a tank top, flaunting nature’s gift to us all. Thanks nature. And thanks to Skydive Chicago for hosting the breast boogie... Watch Video »

Between his hot-shit flying, skeleton jumpsuits, and his party pants, Simon Bones is most definitely rocking LTD status. His video for the Summerfest 2012 Film Festival is 8 minutes of pure entertainment. Have you ever seen a 24 lb turkey in freefall? Well now you have.

Tube jumps, freeflying, an attempt at a “no jumpsuit BFR,” and some of the best fireworks you’ll ever see. Ever. You know, because Summerfest at Skydive Chicago ain’t a party ’til the local fire trucks show up. Oh, and check out the sweet body slam into the skyvan wall at 2:49. Next time, run in...

It’s not an exaggeration to say that Skydive Chicago is the epicenter of the Butt First Revolution. Andy Malchiodi and Bill “MX” Halsey are pushing the boundaries of the freeflying discipline.

During the HYPOXIC Summer Boogie Tour, our friend Trunk managed to convince a plane full of bikini-wearing chicks to straddle a massive inflatable pecker in freefall… but he almost gets taken out by the projectile. And then he gets a grab and BJ in freefall. Teeth were involved. True story. Watch Video »

Absolutely incredible footage from Project XRW of wingsuiters flying alongside parachutes over Skydive Sebastian. The PD Factory Team setting the canopy base, and the wingsuit pilots — organized by Taya Weiss — coming in to fly their slots. Amazing inside and outside footage of the whole thing.
