Friday Freakout: Really Bad Day = Hard Opening, AAD Fire, Landing Two Entangled Parachutes

Friday Freakout: Really Bad Day = Hard Opening, AA...

A hard opening sucks. Period. A hard opening followed by an AAD fire and a messy two-out just as you’re coming in on final is less than ideal. Talk about a bad day. What would you do: cutaway or…? Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Skydiver Stuffs Parachute Down Chest After Pilot Chute In Tow Malfunction!

Friday Freakout: Skydiver Stuffs Parachute Down Ch...

A reserve ride after a pilot chute in tow turns into a sketchy two-out scenario, leaving this skydiver to think quickly: land the two-out, cutaway the main, or… stuff the inflating main parachute down his chest strap to keep it put? He opts for the latter! Now, let’s play some trivia. With a pilot chute... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Hybrid Skydive at 4,500 ft + Low Pull = Cypres Fire

Friday Freakout: Hybrid Skydive at 4,500 ft + Low ...

This is what happens when you do a hybrid jump from 4,500 feet and lose altitude awareness. Low pull = Cypres fire = two parachutes for the price of one. Now that’s a good deal. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Double Cypres Fire, 2 Skydivers, 4 Parachutes

Friday Freakout: Double Cypres Fire, 2 Skydivers, ...

Two skydivers scrambling to deal with a Cypres fire and two-out makes for an exciting 2-way Scrambles competition. Given the situation, which would you prefer: a side-by-side or bi-plane? (the obvious choice is neither, but I’m just curious) Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Surprise... Unexpected AAD Fire... WTF?!

Friday Freakout: Surprise... Unexpected AAD Fire.....

By no means am I an expert on AAD’s, especially when it comes to Argus, but I do know they’re not supposed to fire unexpectedly while calmly flying your main. I think our friend George Abrao would’ve agreed (he has since passed away in a motorcycle accident). RIP brother. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Wingsuit Malfunction, Can't Cutaway

If there’s anything worse than trying to kick out of spinning line twists while in the confines of a wingsuit, it’s not being able to cutaway when you need to. At all. Not quite sure exactly what happened here, but the end result is a two-out and a happy landing. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Premature AAD, Two-Out, Water Landing.

Friday Freakout: Premature AAD, Two-Out, Water Lan...

Having your Vigil fire prematurely, then getting your head stuck between a twist in your reserve risers and not being able to see what’s happening behind you, followed by a water landing kinda sucks. Definitely not the best way to start off your weekend. My advice: buy a case of beer, get a re-pack, and... More »
Friday Freakout: Brain Malfunction. Low Pull. Crash Landing.

Friday Freakout: Brain Malfunction. Low Pull. Cras...

When you see 15 other parachutes opening, maybe it’s time to pull. Just a suggestion. Back tracking for 25 seconds and no alti check?? I call brain malfunction on this one, or maybe he just fell asleep, but he just keeps tracking on. And on. And on. All the way down to nearly 750ft, resulting... Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Altitude Awareness Fail. Double F...

What NOT to do while skydiving: Jump with a tandem as a new jumper. Start backflying after the tandem has deployed at 5,000ft. Go for the dock no matter what the altitude. Fly over the top of your mate at 2,000ft. Ignore your altimeter at 1,800ft. Take the time to wave off (to who!?) at... Watch Video »
