Tight Squeeze, Swooping Between Two Water Towers!

Tight Squeeze, Swooping Between Two Water Towers!

There aren’t too many ponds to swoop in the African desert, so swooping between two water towers will have to do. Did I mention the folks at Swakopmund Skydive Club know how to throw a good desert boogie? Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Swoop. Bounce. Crash. Fail.

Friday Freakout: Swoop. Bounce. Crash. Fail.

Ouch! This looks like it hurt, but could’ve ended a lot worse. There were a number of contributing factors, namely staying on his brakes to let larger canopies land first and trusting his rears too long when he realized he was too low. Other than that (and the resulting bounce)… nice swoop :p When in... Watch Video »

Phew… only broken ribs, a concussion, a misplaced shoe, a missing sock, and a missed competition. Saied went against everyone’s advice and jumped in crappy conditions after a recent downsize, driven by the anxiousness to be ready for a competition in 3 days. So much for that.

Friday Freakout: Swooping Fails... Many Fails.

“This is Sparta SoFPiDaRF!” Pull them strings, people. It’s a good thing these guys were swooping over water, cuz the ground wouldn’t have been so friendly. Ouch. Take the time to learn swooping safely — seriously. Oooor just trust your rears and never give up the gates. Watch Video »
