Friday Freakout: Premature Opening On Big Way. Not Cool.

Friday Freakout: Premature Opening On Big Way. Not...

This 30-way formation skydive became a 29-way after a premature deployment right after exiting the lead plane. He didn’t have a chance to wave off, so his friend waved off for him. Well, it was more like a wave goodbye, but it’s the thought that counts. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Opening Parachute Hits Instructor In The Face!

Friday Freakout: Opening Parachute Hits Instructor...

Sometimes when a situation takes a downward spiral, you’ve got to take matters into your own hands. One of these skydiving instructors keeps his hands on the student. Good call. The other instructor takes a set of lines to the face instead. Not such a good call. Watch Video »

Saving For Skydiving: How A 90-Year-Old Went Skydi...

This video just made my whole day. I had tears in my eyes at the end of it. Still do now. What an incredible thing, life experience, and the story of Marian Barnett saving her pennies to go skydiving at age 90 — one of the countries oldest skydivers. And it’s re-enacted in such a... Watch Video »
Vive Les Tubes!!!

Vive Les Tubes!!!

Oh yeah, vive les tubes! Cool double-tube jump, killer clouds all around (ahem, “industrial haze”), fun docks, different angles, and bottom line — tubes just look cool in freefall and even cooler with people flying all around them. When and where was your last tube jump? Watch Video »
Worldwide Wingsuit + Naked Tracking Competition

Worldwide Wingsuit + Naked Tracking Competition

Sweet footage from the 5th International Wingsuit Competition — the largest wingsuit and tracking competition in the world. Oh, did I mention there’s also a naked tracking category for all you nudists out there. You know who you are! How about a shameless plug for the Elsinore Bad Wings who make a cameo doing gainers,...

What Would You Name This New Skydiving Exit?

What Would You Name This New Skydiving Exit?

It’s not that John ClarkE and Richie Curtis didn’t know what they were doing. Oh no. This exit has obviously been planned meticulously. They just didn’t know what to call it at first. The “Merry-Go-Round”? Perhaps the “Baby-Got-Backfly“? They actually settled on “The Mass Pike.” What would you have named this exit? Thanks to Nate... Watch Video »
ILS Presents: Fly Factory - Distortion Of Time

ILS Presents: Fly Factory - Distortion Of Time

As skydivers, our perception of time doesn’t always adhere to “real time.” Sometimes it feels like we’re floating instead of falling, and a mere 60 seconds can feel like a lifetime. So we decided to slow things down a little. With the help of Fabio at Ragna Films and Fly Factory in Boituva, Brazil, here’s... Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: A Horseshoe Is NOT Lucky, It's A ...

Ever try to get down to a formation with your d-bag and lines bouncing around? Umm, that’s called a horseshoe and, contrary to Irish folklore, a horseshoe while skydiving is NOT lucky — it’s a malfunction! The key is to ignore the malfunction and arch harder. Oh, and dodge your friend who’s trying to dump... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Tandem Bag Lock Malfunction

Friday Freakout: Tandem Bag Lock Malfunction

How about a sketchy bag lock malfunction on a tandem jump? No thanks! This is a mess from the very first line stow — such is the brilliance of hindsight (and slow motion). Who else is thanking their lucky socks that they’ve never pitched a reserve on their back with someone strapped to their chest?... Watch Video »

Derived from the German adjective Klug (meaning “clever”), Red Bull Kluge combines complex machinery patched together with the energy and prowess of world-class athletes, to see what happens when physics gets physical. Although this madness starts with a heli jump, it has very little to do with skydiving, but was just too awesome not to... Watch Video »

On September 22, 2012, a new 100-way wingsuit world record was set at Skydive Perris for the largest unlinked wingsuit bigway in the world! Nice work everyone, the birds would be proud. And big thanks to Matt Hoover for the edit. Watch Video »

Kicking Ass At The 2012 USPA Nationals

Freefly skydiving team Elsinore Ignite took bronze in Freefly Open at the 2012 USPA Nationals. Oh, did I mention it was their first year competing (beer fine!) in the Open class? Well done and well deserved. Congrats to Damien Germano, Shane McLafferty, and Lelo Mras on video. Keep kicking ass guys! Watch Video »

Label 2: Cutaways And High-Fives

Picture this: Cutaway, head down flying, high-five (yes, in that order). Have you ever seen a cutaway followed by some 2-way head down flying? I didn’t think so; neither have I. That’s a first for me, so beers all around. Team Polte knows how to party in the sky. Check out “First Steps” for more... Watch Video »

Imagine jumping out of a pickup truck on the freeway, skidding to a slow grind, just before the rope tethering you to it snaps tight and jolts you to a halt. That’s pretty much what this trooper was feeling as he got hung up on his static line. With lines wrapped around his gear and... Watch Video »
"Crasha" The Skydiving Dog. WTF?!

"Crasha" The Skydiving Dog. WTF?!

Hmmm, usually people take their dog for a walk, not for a tandem skydive. Skydiving? Yes please! Dogs? Yeah, they’re cute. Skydiving dog? Hmmm, I’m not sure how I feel about this one, but I’m sure PETA would lose their mind if they saw this. What d’you think: cruel or no big deal? Watch Video »

Red Bull Air Force pilots Jon DeVore, Miles Daisher and Othar Lawrence visit Malaysia’s tallest buildings, the KL Tower and Petronas Twin Towers via wingsuit flight. You know you’ve had a great day when you knock both of these flights off your todo list in one day, even before taking a lunch break. Not bad... Watch Video »

FlyVertical: The Most Vertical Adventure

Alright, so apparently this is the most vertical adventure at the sunniest DZ in Germany. But once you get past the iMovie intro, it’s a solid edit from, well, the sunniest DZ in Germany. Of course. Sunset jumps, tube jumps, freeflying, and what would a skydiving video be without some weird party shots. Daz eez... Watch Video »

Wingsuit, Meet Parachute -- Close Call Flyby

Well I suppose it’s not a “close call” if it’s planned, but it’s still a pretty close wingsuit flyby. Parachute, meet wingsuit. Wingsuit, parachute. Play nicely you two. Watch Video »
