Swooping Crash & Cool-shot Compilation (DIPC)

Swooping Crash & Cool-shot Compilation (DIPC)

Cool compilation of the Dubai International Parachuting Championship (DIPC) at Skydive Dubai. Starting with crash crash crash crash crash, swoopers in the accuracy zones after dragging a LOT of pond. Only two people stood up; see if you can pick ‘em out. Speed runs are next… lots of footage of a lot of different competitors.... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Swooping. Low Turn. Femured. Ouch.

Friday Freakout: Swooping. Low Turn. Femured. Ouch...

Swooping and low turns don’t go well together. Gravity and broken femurs do though. Stay away from the latter… it’s not a good combo. Unless you’re one of those “chicks dig scars” kinda guys. Even then, I don’t recommend it. Just ask this guy. 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 »
Friday Freakout: Swoop Gone Wrong. Stupid Hurts.

Friday Freakout: Swoop Gone Wrong. Stupid Hurts.

Same turn, same place, same height. Or so he thought. A great comparison of a swoop gone wrong and a swoop gone right. Stupid hurts, but those same mistakes can keep us alive if they teach us something. Live and learn everyone! Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Swooper Hits Hard, But Never Gives Up the Gates

Friday Freakout: Swooper Hits Hard, But Never Give...

“You totally made the gates bro…” Umm, yeah. Totally. Wonder if he made it onto the table with a score of 1 meter. Either way, I’m pretty sure he deserves a nomination to the SoFPiDaRF Hall of inFame – well, only if he downsizes immediately! LOL. Just kidding. Fly safe everyone! Watch Video »
Kickass Swoop Comp Finals at Skydive Elsinore

Kickass Swoop Comp Finals at Skydive Elsinore

Great turnout for the ISM 2010-2011 Swoop Competition at Skydive Elsinore. I have swooped this pond MANY times myself, and so to see these guys hitting it with the downwind push… yeah, NOT easy to shut it down and stand up in those accuracy zones (and most don’t)! Distance, now that’s another story… love the... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Getting Hit By A Parachute Sucks!

Friday Freakout: Getting Hit By A Parachute Sucks!

Ah, the dangers of standing next to the pond on a dropzone. You’ve got to love how Brent’s friend cares more about the video footage than his buddy who just got clotheslined by some A-lines. On the bright side, at least Brent’s face wasn’t filleted by the lines or the swooper wasn’t clotheslined by a... Watch Video »
Who Says CReW Dogs Can't Swoop?

Who Says CReW Dogs Can't Swoop?

Who says CReW dogs can’t swoop? On top of some stunning sunset shots and super fun side-by-side exits, the end of this clip is full of some sweet swoops from some of the best canopy pilots in skydiving. Crew rules… check it out! Watch Video »
Swooping Like A Champ At The Freestyle Festival

Swooping Like A Champ At The Freestyle Festival

Swooping at its best! Sorry to disappoint you if you were expecting a sarcastic title and nothing but PLFs. There’s nothing but pure talent in this old swoop freestyle festival footage. Alright, so you still want your fix of PLFs and swooping fails… this is just for you. Watch Video »
The Palm - Be There!

The Palm - Be There!

Skydive Dubai is home to one of the most exotic and breathtaking coastlines in the world, including the world-renowned Palm Islands. If you’ve never been to Skydive Dubai, you need to get your shit together and head over there this summer. But if you can’t make it anytime soon, here are some highlights to get... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Swooper Clotheslined By Wire Fence

Friday Freakout: Swooper Clotheslined By Wire Fenc...

Swooping is fun… until you get clotheslined by a wire fence! Yet another way to add instant brakes while swooping. This reminds me of a fighter jet snagging the tailhook when landing on an aircraft carrier, minus the cool fighter jet and smooth landing. Watch Video »
Look Ma, No Hands... F**k The Toggles

Look Ma, No Hands... F**k The Toggles

Why use toggles for landing when you can look this good without them! Have you ever tried a ghostrider swoop before? Watch Video »
Swooping + CYPRES Fire = Instant Brakes

Swooping + CYPRES Fire = Instant Brakes

Having your CYPRES accidentally fire while swooping is one hell of a way to slam on the brakes! He’s lucky this didn’t happen 50-100 feet higher. Watch Video »

Swooping: Just Add Water

What do you do when your dropzone doesn’t have a swooping pond? Take a handful of skydivers, some high performance canopies, and just add water! Watch Video »

A Moment In Time

A Moment In Time

It’s amazing how something that happens so fast, like skydiving or BASE jumping, can create forever lasting memories. And although it’s rare to take a moment in time and slow it down to the same speed at which the mind perceived it when it happened, Ciamac and Jarno Cordia of Fly Like Brick accomplished that...

Distance Battles in Dubai (DIPC)

Following the Mad Swooping Skills video I posted earlier this week, here’s a mix of the canopy formation, formation skydiving, and canopy piloting rounds from Day 3 of the third annual Dubai International Parachuting Championship (DIPC) at Skydive Dubai. Keep your eyes peeled at 4:43 for some swooping carnage. Oh, and a rant from the... Watch Video »
