A cold black cloud is coming down

Recommended Posts

Is it the radiation?
I jump E's mostly and wear boxer shorts rather than underpants.
It's worked, I've got one kid so far and it's probably safer than jumping A's and wearing underpants.:P

When i met him he threw some crisps down and brought the pints to the table declaring he'd bought us dinner.

I heard some funny stories that night, my deepest sympothy to his family and those who knew him most.

Absolutely gutted. I stopped jumping a few years ago and moved abroad so I hadn't spoken to Sean enough recently but for a couple of years I spent more time with him than anyone. He had a big influence on me and we had some good times. He was definately unique.

I'm feeling for Vicki right now in particular, I know she'll get a load of support through this. Also thinking about all the lads back home, I know you guys are having a tough time.

Be careful guys, I'm sick of losing mates.

Sean was a big part of my journey into BASE.

When he wasn't busy barking & growling at newbies for being silly he was very busy helping them; sometimes the same newbies.

He will be greatly missed. [:/]

Can anybody say what gear he was using? Canopy, container, pc, etc Thanks,



What does that have to do with anything??

He was an experienced jumper, one can only assume that his gear choice was suitable for the jumps he did.

What could you possibly hope to learn from knowing his gear and configuration anyway?


It seems from the list, fairly clear, that BASEjumping is dangerous and no amount of experience or specific set of gear will keep you magically safe from harm.


I never met Sean, but he was one of the few posters on here that I found their posts worthwhile.

I've seen some of his videos. I have heard of his reputation.

I would like to offer my condolonces to all his friends and family who might see this post.

My thoughts are with the UK BASErs now, this was a huge loss for them.

Let's leave the stupid questions for later, eh?

FYI (this info is second hand, but from a reliable source): BASE specific gear; 180 opening.

If you didn't know who Sean was, I understand why you ask the question... However, I agree with 980 that there is really nothing to learn from this; shit happens in this sport, and it can kill you. This incident underlines that point.

Sean´s reply to that would be:

"If you dont like it..... Fuck off!!!"

Not posting to step on toes but all who knew him knew this line,it were said whith a smile on his face.

Mac,you really should pick up your phone or give me a shout.Dont be so hard to yourself.Im at home all day,the phone is on.

Stay safe
