Perfection: Swooping With Alter Ego

Perfection: Swooping With Alter Ego

A standup landing in the box… no big deal. Just another day at the office for Curt Bartholomew of team Alter Ego. If this is Curt’s idea of playing around at the pond, it’s no surprise he takes the podium at swoop comps. That was just a tease and you want more, don’t you? Check... Watch Video »

Sweet Swooping Skills: The Double Miracle Man

Vince Reffet of Babylon Freefly proves that not only is he a badass freeflyer, but he can rock his Velocity more than most, too. Impressive level flight as he twists himself twice around during his swoop across the ground. And he even drags a little “pond” at the end there… hehehe. Watch Video »
Summer Swoop 'N Slide!

Summer Swoop 'N Slide!

Hot summer days in the desert call for extreme measures, like swooping a 200-foot slip and slide at Skydive Arizona. Tell me this doesn’t look like soooo much fun. Watch Video »

Blindman Swooping POV. Easy as 1,2,3.

This doesn’t end in carnage. It doesn’t make you cringe. Instead, it’s a swoopity swooptastic blindman from Noah Bahnson’s point of view. Easy as 1, 2, 3, with a twist (pun intended). Watch Video »

Slow-Mo Swooping, Done Right

Slow-Mo Swooping, Done Right

Since I’m a PD sponsored athlete myself, I really like this one, hehe. But yeah, this video is a straight-up cool compilation of creative angles from the 2011 FLCPA (Meet #1)… people flying parachutes fast across the ground and water, but in slow motion. Normally swooping in slow-mo is lame, but in this case it... Watch Video »

Skydiver's Barrel Roll Landing Close To Ground

Skydiver's Barrel Roll Landing Close To Ground

What do you get when using your rears and harness close to the ground on a Velo 90? A barrel roll that scares the shit out of everyone watching. This must be more fun than the dizzying 1080 swoop I posted last week. Some might say Ryan has big balls for trying this, while others... Watch Video »
