    BASE game

    that would be correct! they are competing against the big guys they put in flips, just a twist in those flips and I'll buy it hell I'll probably buy it anyway lol
  3. I own a 30gig HDD camera, its awesome how ever I haven't parachuted with it and wouldn't for one the opening shock would cause it to kick in protection to protect the hard drive which is pretty much a spinning disc and a needle. I had mine in a drunken mosh pit and jump up and down caused it to stop recording and popup an alert "the camera has blah blah blah, do you wish to save the footage" and unfortunately I didn't lose my drunken antics. also note if you have a hard drive and go in, the hard drive will definitely not survive impact and where a tape may be sliced together to see how you fucked up etc, the HDD will not be fixable.
  4. yes thats the 1 I kinda live near it
  5. anyone on here from there? instructor's frequent jumpers etc? thanks
  6. cool thanks for that. hopefully I can find some absailing or indoor rock climbing place near by. so static line it will be. if anyone disagree's please speak up. also does the tandam provide less force to the student then a non tandam jump? as I've seen people in there 80's and older do tandams and they didn't seem to break, but I guess that could mean they might also be able to do normal jumps as well. I'm just trying to work out the best progression for my come back
  7. big way as in I'd be hobbleing around. limping like an old dog. when I'd jump it was like a tearing sensation to the outside of my hip joints and also like being whacked with a sledge hammer, by my 3rd jump it took about 1.5 years to recover. before I could fully run again without feeling this weird painfull sensation. I had scans and they could see some inflamation and I got heaps of blood tests which found nothing and they thought it might have been arthritis of some kind at first but never found any further evidence, I got some quarterzone injections which made a big difference, I eventually got back into running again and now can run fine like before I started jumping. before I jump again I'm going to really really test out my hips in every way possible, start stretching them in weird angles and do a lot more then running/swimming, like cycleing and diff kinds of weights at the gym. then if everything is fine, hopefully find a DZ in my new current country "england" and take up jumping again.
  8. Hi all, I took up my aff several years ago and for unknown reasons my outer hip joints hated it in a big way, I had to stop jumping after 3 jumps. I seen several specialist had several injections, and no1 could work out exactly what the issue was. anyway I still come into this site every day since and I'm getting to the point where I'm going insane lol. I thought eventually I could grow away from it but it aint happening, I need to get into an aircraft I'm wanting to know what the best kind of jump is I should try first. what would have the softest opening shock out of the following. 1. Aff freefall. 2. Tandam (passenger) free fall 3. Static Line as my hips feel great these days, but I would rather try the smoothest ride first. thanks in advance

    the biggest problem with this game is lack of aerials (spelt right?) in the very first ever vid, everyone said (well me anyway) that they'll need to make the game so ya can do back/front flips etc for it to really appeal. now they did that but they stopped there, I want to be able to do a double front flip and quickly twist into a double back flip. games like tony hawk has a bazillion tricks ya can pull they should make this game the same. at present I can do half a dozen flips then it takes me about 400 feet to be able to pull out of the flips then turn and flip the other way lol. good start so far to the developers but hopefully they can update it soon with proper flips
  10. I'll get a copy and a copy of the last 1 if the person selling this 1 also is selling the last one as I don't have that 1 either have the rest though

    seems awefully buggy. my d00d hit the ground at full speed and is rolling, so far rolled about 50 metre's very slowly

    lol fair enough some in game advertisement as it's a growing revenue resource for games and movies these days. but no disrespect to felix as I've never met the guy, but would have been cool if it never had anyone's name on it. or someone who is more known for being a little extreme, or having an historical impact on the sport

  15. securing it online would be quite simple. you'd have it so its all encrypted in the db etc and the only thing that can decrypt it is the key the user knows. even if the authorities can see the code to view the encryption algorithm it'll be pointless to them if its strong enough encryption and besides don't make yours accessible to anyone make the site invite only and make the your log only viewable by ya friends.

    I'm that used to seeing/hearing the acronym "bj" and having it mean blow job, that I found the message funny each time I read that acronym call me childish if you want but by the time I go to I literally laughed out loud
  17. there is several diff angles in the ABA vids of this jump. also Tom has an angel (from the ground) on his site which I think he may have took can't remember to link to his page though
  18. I don't understand this discussion sorry this is how all aussies dress what are we trying to discuss ?
  19. in some bridge jumps dwain done, he seemed to be wearing what resembled wetsuit shorts were these to prevent a burst colon or were they actually bicycle style shorts for a nice firm feeling?
  20. my impression was the forum commentor also had footage, and possibly a ground view so I'd like to see that where as the camera man seemed to be jumping with dwain so I thought I'd ask away
  21. as an aussie living in england who was at a pub tonight while people were reading the local paper I can tell you now what the local impression is of a base jumper its a person who swims in the most polluted water (the thames river) to climb out in a water proof suit (yes I know what its called I've been diving since i was 8 years old ) to climb up on an object illegally to wait all night till there is maximum viewers then to jump off (doing a hop and pop, so maximum viewers can see maximum canopy ride) wearing a dinner suit and to land near by in front of the cameras so you can submit your photo's to the local papers so everyone can think every base jumper is the same. now is every base jumper the same? you tell me its not up to me to decide its up to the local news papers to tell us.
  22. ahhkies this wasn't the bridge I was thinking of, doing it off the bridge in the pic is insane, the other bridge I was thinking of I'm pretty sure is 240ft I'd love to see video footage of this jump from the ground. if you have any feel free to pm to it to me and I'll keep it out of the public domain
  23. he did a double gainer from a 240ft bridge in oz, and had about 2ish second canopy ride, I'd like to see it footage of him doing it lower then 200ft
  24. my hips are slowly getting better. I can now not only run but also sprint and feel fine I hope to have another crack at jumping if my hips remain fine for another 6 months how ever I'd be curious as to what the opening shock of a static line jump is liked compared to that of a terminal deployment ? if static line opening shock is far less then I could try a static line jump anyone know if there is much diff ?
  25. is mexico right ? is there some other cave or water fall or something unusual near there ? I think I remember this being chated about a year ago and there was something cool but very remote i could be wrong
