Perhaps the most frightening minute of my life. On the 14th of November 2014 while doing phase five of my Accelerated Free Fall program I had a near fatality experience. At around 9000ft I had a seizure while trying a left hand turn. I after that spend the next 30 secs in free loss subconscious. Luckily my jumpmaster takes care of to pull my ripcord at around 4000ft. I become conscious at 3000 ft and also land safely back to the ground.

Videos of Parachuting – Fun Way to Know the Sport Better

When one talks about parachuting, several things come to mind. The exhilarating feeling it gives to most skydivers, the high cost of its equipment, and the danger that comes along with it are some of them.

But just the same, the sport remains popular not only among skydivers but spectators as well. In fact, more enthusiasts are enjoying the sport not only by going to actual skydiving and parachuting events but also by watching videos on parachuting.

Skydiving and parachuting is one of the most popular activities in most sunny areas of the world. The excitement and adrenaline rush that it gives the skydiver is something that no other sport can give. Maybe because it gives men the illusion of flying that makes it really popular.

Because it is now considered more of a sport than just a recreational activity, there are several disciplines that call for both recreational and competitive events. Among the other disciplines are formation skydiving, sky surfing, free fall skydiving, paraski, canopy formation and BASE skydiving.

While there may be some accidents that occur during skydiving, these could be attributed to negligence and inexperience. These fatalities should not hinder you from trying it anyway. It is estimated that less than 1 in 1,000 jumps experience opening malfunction.

Before any jump, you must make sure that you have the proper equipment and training that you need. Examine your gear. Check them for any problems. Sometimes trained riggers do the packing of the parachute. Most people pack a second chute as back-up in case the main chute fails to open.

You must also learn the sport well. Look for skydiving facilities in your area and ask a trainer to teach you. You can join a skydiving club or organization in your area. You can also look at some listings of professional skydivers and see if anyone can train you.

Some trainers use videos in teaching. This makes learning more effective, since you will be able to see how it is actually done aside from reading it in books or hearing it from your trainer.

Aside from these instructional videos, you may also watch videos in some websites dedicated to skydiving. Here enthusiasts upload videos that are both instructional and entertaining. You will also learn tips and techniques in skydiving. Other skydiving enthusiasts can post their comments and opinions on important areas of skydiving such as equipment, apparel and skydiving sites.

To find more videos, you can look at websites which provide video sharing and type the keywords “parachuting” or “skydiving.” You will be surprised at the number of videos uploaded by members. You will see different formations and styles in shows and skydiving exhibitions. Of course, there may also be accidents that will be uploaded there.

There are many videos of parachuting that you can watch. When watching the instructional ones, you can actually learn the basics of skydiving before doing your first jump.

On the down side, watching videos which feature accidents may leave you feeling afraid, causing you to dread the sport without even trying it first. However it may affect you, watching the videos remains to be entertaining and educational at the same time. And they are readily available and accessible when you want to watch them.

      +Kaylee I know that because I have Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy. I also have

    How high would someone bounce, if they hit the ground at full speed?

    • Jorge Vences

      As high back up as where he skydived X 10 to the 5th power

    • JonMarTwins

      They would bounce about 50 meters up, before falling down and bouncing some
      more. (I did the math)

    • Damien .!!

      3-10 feet. there are videos on the net of people jumping off the twin
      towers and hitting the ground and vids of sky divers

  5. XxShiny StarzxX

    That other dude flew down there like a fucking turtle bruh

    • -BR- N0xiety

      You do realise when you pick up speed you also need time to decelerate…
      If he picks up too much speed he wouldn’t be able to slow himself to catch
      the guy…

    • Crystal M

      Exactly what I was thinking. Seems like he would have to do it slowly to be
      accurate enough to hit his target.

  6. Sulaiman Miah
