Skydive Student Has Seizure In Freefall, Instructor Saves The Day!

Skydive Student Has Seizure In Freefall, Instructo...

A skydive student has a seizure in freefall while doing his AFF Level 5. The seizure begins at 9,000 feet, the instructor deploys the student’s canopy at 4,000 feet, then the student regains consciousness at 3,000 feet and lands safely. Scary stuff. It’s rare that a skydiving video fit for our Friday Freakout series gets... Watch Video »

Yes, this AFF student spins out of control. And yes, he pulls his reserve at 9,000 feet. But in his defense, the instructor unexpectedly induced the spin after telling the student to pull his reserve if he got separated for any reason (according to the videographer). Not. Cool. Watch Video »
Freelying AFF Student On Jump #4?

Freelying AFF Student On Jump #4?

This isn’t your typical AFF. A student who can freefly on jumps 1 through 4 is pretty impressive… but of course it helps if you’re a tunnel instructor before you start AFF. Watch Video »

It’s no secret that altitude awareness is crucial for skydivers. As students, we’re taught to never sacrifice altitude for stability. This skydive student spins out of control, loses altitude awareness and pulls by 800 feet, which results in a CYPRES fire as his main canopy inflates. Luckily his reserve stayed in the container and he... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Student Cypres Save WITH Instructor... WTF?!!

Friday Freakout: Student Cypres Save WITH Instruct...

Aside from this kid looking all sorts of awkward in freefall, this instructor should be fired. There’s no excuse for both a student and an instructor losing altitude awareness. The last alti check seems to be at 0:37 by the student and at, umm, never by the instructor before the student pulls his main and... Watch Video »

All students are taught to arch. ARCH! Yet, from time to time, this doesn’t work so well. This skydiving student ends up on his back, spinning like a top. Fun times. How well did your AFF Level 3 go? Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: AFF Student Spins Like A Top

Friday Freakout: AFF Student Spins Like A Top

As students, we’re all taught to arch, ARch, ARCH! Unfortunately that doesn’t work so well for this guy. He ends up on his back, spinning like a top. Or maybe he just couldn’t wait to start back flying. After all, it was his fourth jump (AFF Level 4). How did you fourth jump go? Watch Video »
Skydiving Student Hits Plane... JUST LET GO!

Skydiving Student Hits Plane... JUST LET GO!

This skydiving student is fine, just a minor bruise to his ego. In the wise words of Tyler Durden from Fight Club… “JUST LET GO!” Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Student's Pilot Chute Wraps Aroun...

Well this makes for one hell of an exciting AFF Level 2 jump, and serves as a friendly reminder that ANY camera on your helmet can be a snag hazard, not just a GoPro. In this case, the student’s pilot chute wraps around her instructor’s “traditional” camera as she deploys. Luckily she notices what’s going... Watch Video »

The only thing worse than losing a shoe in freefall is packing a shoe in your parachute (yup, true story). Have you ever lost a shoe (or anything else) in the sky? Watch Video »

Panic Mode: Student Skydiver Can't Open Parachute

Ohhh, that awkward moment as a skydiving student when you can’t find your handle, then go straight into panic mode. Did you ever have a moment of panic as a skydiving student? Watch Video »

Demo Jump Fail... Or Student Landing Win?

Demo Jump Fail... Or Student Landing Win?

I’m a bit confused. Was this a botched demo jump or did 5 students land off?? Regardless, would’ve been nice to see at least one of them stand it up… even with the turbulence and downwind landing :p Watch Video »

A bridle wrapped around a student’s foot certainly isn’t an ideal deployment, but it beats having the bridle wrapped around the neck like this other AFF student. Watch Video »

Nothing makes you shit the proverbial bed than when you’re an AFF student running out of altitude and you deploy your parachute while spinning on your back / head down. Great job by the student on getting his parachute out despite the situation. As they say: never sacrifice altitude for stability. Watch Video »

With only 20 skydives to his name, Christian Kraus decided it would be a great time to take up BASE jumping. Now that Christian has gone pro, he has 10 BASE jumps to his name and this is his first cliff exit. DO NOT try this at home kids, unless you’re a professional idiot like... Watch Video »
