Friday Freakout: Scary Bridle Wrap Around Camera!

Friday Freakout: Scary Bridle Wrap Around Camera!

You know how people say cameras are a snag hazard? Yup, that just happened. At least they held the dock. Watch Video »

I know we all make mistakes, but if skydivers like this are sharing the same airspace as the rest of us, they should at least be wearing home arrest-style ankle bracelets so we can keep track of them in the sky. The madness all starts off with a botched wingsuit rodeo, which turns into a... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Another Wild Parachute Wrap

Friday Freakout: Another Wild Parachute Wrap

What starts out as a solid 4-stack CRW (canopy relative work) rotation by Team Hypoxia quickly turns into four good friends trying to kill each other in another wild parachute wrap. Surprisingly, this mess only resulted in one cutaway. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Bad BASE Exit = Terrifying Bridle Wrap

Friday Freakout: Bad BASE Exit = Terrifying Bridle...

As the saying goes, timing is everything… especially in BASE when your life depends on it. I’m sure this wasn’t his best exit; in fact, it was probably the most terrifying exit of his life. But he lived to tell the story. Don’t do this, live and learn, and stay alive. Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: 50+ Canopy Cluster F*ck = WRAP!

Friday Freakout: 50+ Canopy Cluster F*ck = WRAP!

I don’t know anything about paratrooper / military jumps, so I can’t comment on the exit separation (or lack thereof) and the ensuing cluster f*ck of 50+ canopies, canopy wrap and impact. But I do know I would pay ANYTHING to jump out of that plane! Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Skydiver Survives Paralyzing Coll...

Stupid DOES hurt (a little too much in this case). Videographer Tim gets too close to “Origami Flying Mofo” and a nasty canopy wrap ensues. Origami Mofo cuts away, but Tim’s not done yet — his lines entangle the reserve, which turns into a blue ball of nylon. Tim impacts a cornfield, breaking his pelvis,... Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Pilot Chute In Tow + Reserve Enta...

Now this is how you retrieve your main after a cutaway!! You know you’re having a bad day when you cutaway from a pilot chute in tow and your bridle still wants to play. It gets WAY more interesting when he tows in his main! Whew! If only he re-packed it on the ride down. Watch Video »

Holy shitballs, Batman! I just soiled myself. Nothin’ like your bridle and d-bag wrapping around the strut of a helicopter to spice up a heli jump. Things get even spicier once the canopy starts to inflate. Scary stuff like this can be avoided with something as simple a gear checks. DOUBLE CHECK YOUR GEAR. If... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Parachute Wrap With Freefly Tube... Woooooo!

Friday Freakout: Parachute Wrap With Freefly Tube....

What would Simon Bones say if he got his parachute wrapped up in a freefly tube? If you guessed, “wooooo………… wooooo!”, you win a prize (the prize being a clean cutaway, of course). Thanks for sharing, Bones. Not quite sure what the lesson is here, but he sure was relaxed about the situation. For the... Watch Video »

Friday Freakout: Close-Up CRW Wrap (POV)

Some things just aren’t meant to go together — like two canopies, two skydivers, and a clusterfuck of lines. Crazy CRW dogs. Watch Video »

So you have less than 200 jumps and wanna jump a camera, huh? Think again. But if you do anyways, send us the footage :p Here’s what can happen when you’re an experienced skydiver and you accidentally lasso a camera with your shoe laces. Yeehaw! Watch Video »

A Mr. Bill with inexperienced jumpers can go wrong really fast — like getting wrapped up in your pilot chute and bridle right out the door. Take notes… don’t do this! I’m sure it sounded like a good idea at the time. What could possibly go wrong? Watch Video »

Imagine jumping out of a pickup truck on the freeway, skidding to a slow grind, just before the rope tethering you to it snaps tight and jolts you to a halt. That’s pretty much what this trooper was feeling as he got hung up on his static line. With lines wrapped around his gear and... Watch Video »

Some days things just don’t go your way. This poor skydiver was having one of those bad days. First, the freefly tube was spinning him around like a top. Then, his altimeter gets trapped in his risers on deployment. And finally, he steers one-handed and lands super hard in a ditch. In a situation like... Watch Video »

Man, you can never have too much nylon! Too right! And not only does he survive being wrapped up in three canopies (including his reserve), but he steers that mess with his right hand and his left foot to land safely in a field. True story. What a BADASS! Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Paratrooper Survives 50-Foot Cutaway!!!

Friday Freakout: Paratrooper Survives 50-Foot Cuta...

Talk about a close call. This has to be one of the LOWEST cutaways I’ve ever seen. Two paratroopers get wrapped up and one of them chops his main less than 50 feet (give or take) above the ground, and luckily his reserve opens 15 feet before impact. Pardon me while I change my underwear! Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: CRW. Clouds. Cutaway.

Friday Freakout: CRW. Clouds. Cutaway.

Doing CRW (canopy relative work) in clouds probably wasn’t the wisest decision these two skydivers ever made. It’s a bit like doing a low hook turn blindfolded. In fact, thinking about it, that may even be safer. Watch Video »

The tie-dye shirt, vintage canopy colors and grainy video quality is a dead giveaway this is old footage of a BASE jumping accident at Bridge Day. What an intense accident to walk away from unharmed! Maybe they should wave off and break away next time? Or not. On a brighter note, check out Lonnie Bissonnette’s... Watch Video »
Friday Freakout: Tandem Skydive Goes Wrong

Friday Freakout: Tandem Skydive Goes Wrong

Talk about bad timing. Deploying your drogue while head down doesn’t seem like a good idea. Something bad might happen, like the drogue wrapping around your foot. At least this TI can sleep soundly at night knowing he didn’t fuck up as badly as this other tandem instructor. I’m sure some of you have an... Watch Video »
