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: Swooper Skips Pond Like Stone

Friday Freakout: Swooper Skips Pond Like Stone

Yeeeeah, so you know how you can skip stones on a pond. Well you’re not supposed to try that using your body as the stone. Not gonna lie, it’s very rare that anyone gets to be featured twice for a Friday Freakout, but this is the same “swooper” who was clotheslined by a wire fence.... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Near Impact... "Teach Me To Swoop A Mountain"

Friday Freakout: Near Impact... "Teach Me To Swoop...

This reminds of another video of a skydiver who nearly impacts a mountain in freefall. If this guy wanted to learn to speedfly, all he had to do was ask! Turning a skydive into a mountain run: priceless. For everything else, there’s BASE rigs. 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 »

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 »
Friday Freakout: Check Yourself Before You Wreck Yourself

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: CRAZY - Grandma Falls Out of Skydiving Harness

Friday Freakout: CRAZY - Grandma Falls Out of Skyd...

OMG! This has to be one of the craziest/scariest tandem videos I’ve ever seen. Kinda makes me feel sick just watching it, but luckily this tandem instructor’s negligence ends without casualty. Long story short, this 80 year-old grandma does a tandem skydive for her birthday and nearly falls out of the harness because it’s not... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Swooping. Low Turn. Femured. Ouch.

Friday Freakout: Swooping. Low Turn. Femured. Ouch...

Swooping and low turns don’t go well together. Gravity and broken femurs do though. Stay away from the latter… it’s not a good combo. Unless you’re one of those “chicks dig scars” kinda guys. Even then, I don’t recommend it. Just ask this guy. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: How NOT To Exit An Aircraft!

Friday Freakout: How NOT To Exit An Aircraft!

This exit is just plane painful. Pun intended. Excuse me one moment while I put on my helmet… I was just reminded why we (should) all wear one. I might even consider wearing two after watching this :) Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Student's Parachute Rips In Half!

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: Swoop Gone Wrong. Stupid Hurts.

Friday Freakout: Swoop Gone Wrong. Stupid Hurts.

Same turn, same place, same height. Or so he thought. A great comparison of a swoop gone wrong and a swoop gone right. Stupid hurts, but those same mistakes can keep us alive if they teach us something. Live and learn everyone! Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: CRW. Clouds. Cutaway.

Friday Freakout: CRW. Clouds. Cutaway.

Doing CRW (canopy relative work) in clouds probably wasn’t the wisest decision these two skydivers ever made. It’s a bit like doing a low hook turn blindfolded. In fact, thinking about it, that may even be safer. Watch Video »

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: Skyhook Cutaway Saves Skydiver

Friday Freakout: Skyhook Cutaway Saves Skydiver

Having a collision in freefall after a cutaway is a really bad problem to have. Luckily for Brett Newman his Skyhook worked as advertised and saved his ass from a nasty collision after a cutaway… by only a few feet. Timing is everything, and the Skyhook delivered as promised. In case you didn’t realize just... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Pilot Chute in Tow + Cypres Save

Friday Freakout: Pilot Chute in Tow + Cypres Save

The Wingsuit Drummer has his first parachute malfunction, and a good one at that — a pilot chute in tow — which resulted in a delayed reaction, a Cypres save, and an open reserve by 500 feet! Next time, maybe don’t wait so long to fire your reserve. Just my two cents. Watch Video »

In the words of Tommy Ferguson, “Awww, crap! That sucks.” I’m not sure WTF this truck/trailer was doing parked on the landing area, but target fixation got the best of Tommy on a downwind landing and he managed to hit the one object in an open desert that could — and did — mess him... Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Skydiver Dislocates Arm, Can't Pu...

At some point I’m sure we’ve all had to twist someone’s arm – figuratively speaking – to get on a load. But this poor skydiver literally has his arm twisted out of the socket in freefall which apparently makes dumping your main extremely difficult, if not impossible. Opening and landing a parachute with a dislocated... Watch Video »

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 »
