New Skydiving Aircraft... A Toyota

New Skydiving Aircraft... A Toyota

Imagine a car suspended underneath a helicopter. Imagine 3 skydivers jumping out of it in dramatic fashion and equally dramatic outfits, hahaa. THEN, imagine those same skydivers frefalling with this car and a big parachute saving it from a wicked impact. If you’re looking for another cool commercial, check out the Chevy Sonic’s first test... Watch Video »
The Boogie Monster

The Boogie Monster

A collection of David Schwartz’s best moments in 2012 — Summerfest at Skydive Chicago, the Invasion at Skydive Sebastian, UPT Flight Camp, Mustang Beach’s Fall Fandango and the Eloy record camp, just to name a few. As far as I’m concerned, having the opportunity to travel and participate in these great events is “living the... 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 »
REAL Skydiving Porn: Coming Together

REAL Skydiving Porn: Coming Together

If you’re a skydiving virgin, avert your eyes, there’s nothing to see here. Now, down to business with some real skydiving porn. I’m not sure what’s sexier: the toggle poking through the cat’s eye at the 0:35 mark, or the thought of a skydiving rig that packs itself (happy ending optional). Huge thanks to John... Watch Video »
New Skydiving Exit: The Hot-Dog

New Skydiving Exit: The Hot-Dog

This is a first: the hot-dog exit. Four people link together as the “bun” and one lucky guy or gal squeezes in the middle as the “street meat.” Now you have something new to try this weekend. Give it a shot and report back to us on Monday with the outcome. Watch Video »
Funny Farm 2012: The Australian Outback

Funny Farm 2012: The Australian Outback

You love boogies, I love boogies, we all love boogies. Funny Farm is a skydiving invitational boogie that takes place at Roger Mulckey’s farm in the Australian Outback.

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 »

WARNING: The majority of this footage is seizure-inducing and may cause your eyes to bleed. We all know GoPro cameras are bomb-proof. Just ask the dude who had a scary head-down premature opening and lost his GoPro from from 10,000ft. But this video takes 1st place in the OMGWTFLMAO department. Not only does his GoPro...

Epic Plane-to-Plane Skydive by Troy Hartman

Epic Plane-to-Plane Skydive by Troy Hartman

I’d love to do a plane-to-plane skydive! I mean, it just looks cool, fun, and totally doable. I’m sure it took a ton of coordination and timing, and I’m sure it was NOT easy, but Troy Hartman makes it look smooth. The smile after he secures himself in the second plane… yeah, that’s the ticket.... Watch Video »

Man, you can never have too much nylon! Too right! And not only does he survive being wrapped up in three canopies (including his reserve), but he steers that mess with his right hand and his left foot to land safely in a field. True story. What a BADASS! Watch Video »

Here’s our take on Summerfest 2012 at Skydive Chicago, including some after-hours shenanigans and, most importantly, the new 138-way vertical world record. Huge thanks to everyone who submitted footage to us, and to our video ninja Brad Womack for such an epic edit. We put a lot of work into making this video, so please... Watch Video »

Rise And Shine, The Hot Air Balloon Is Ready!

Sure, I love skydiving. And balloon jumps are always fun. But I’m usually still dead asleep at 6am. Just sayin’. Here’s a short moody edit by Jarno Cordia of Fly Like Brick on a sweet balloon jump during the 2012 wingsuit competition and boogie in Siofok, Hungary. Watch Video »
Boogie Times. Good Times. All The Time.

Boogie Times. Good Times. All The Time.

Sadly, summer’s over and PBD — post boogie depression — might be setting in for some of you. But fear not. You can skydive vicariously through this footage from the Mimizan, Pau Kristal and Attaka boogies in Europe. Relax, pop a Prozac, and watch this (repeat as needed). Watch Video »

Another visual reminder to watch your handles in the plane! This skydiver’s pilot chute gets caught on the inside of the skyvan door. Luckily it wasn’t a caravan or otter where the parachute can get caught on the tail of the plane, like this guy. Watch your HANDLES! Watch YOUR handles! WATCH YOUR HANDLES! 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 »

There’s just something really fun about flying in shorts and t-shirts… it’s like you’re goofing off even more than you already are. Sometimes I organize shorts-n-tshirt tracks, or whatever else, because it’s just fun. Try it sometime, if you haven’t already. This video from Varial Freefly speaks to that kind of “free” flying fun.

GoPro + Red Bull + Kirby = Amazing Air Show Stunt

The 2012 EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wisconsin is a tremendous event. So it comes as no surprise that Kirby Chambliss and the Red Bull Air Force bring it hard with sweet aerial skills by planes and people. Wingsuits being circled by a stunt plane? We’ll take it. Watch Video »
