    hey 460 you think that this base jumper does not know that every base jump can be dangerous and potatntially fatal?... of course he does, all he is looking for is a the whereabouts of some totally bitchen exit points. and 689... yes, this website is a great place to get info. and yes I do think someone will give him the GPS coordinates if they have them, I just happen not to have them so I PM'd him directions as best as I could remember them. I imagine that the locals that frequent this site would be helpful to this curious base jumper as well. anyways, MIKE TB good luck finding your way to the top, and ignore these computer types when they post irrelevent negativity, they are just totally silly. It cracks me up... if someone asked you for directions to the store would you respond by saying "watchout, and look both ways before crossing any streets, you might cross a street on your way and that could make you the millionth person to ever die crossing the street."
  5. People have talked about this one before. The way to go is to steer immediately. a parachute can be slowed down and turned with either the seat belts or the yonkles. a standard base yonkle is pretty easy to grab. I have seen the deep brakes turn work really well on toggles in a pinch, indeed the seatbelts are bigger and work well too. the key is to just turn the thing away right away, usually by stopping forward speed first and doing a deep brakes pivot type turn using whichever way you are confortable and quick.
  6. defintely impressive. there is this kid named Jesse Hall. I feel he kind of redefined the learning curve. 50 objects in his first year, 200 jumps. his first jump was off of a Dam, then a waterfall in the swiss valley where he did a front flip. after a few more cliff jumps he finally went to Miles' bridge (which was jt's at the time.) he opened new sights in colorado with his friends, he ski based, he did aerials all over the place. he went to the royal gorge event and jumped that bridge safely. rookie of the year?
  7. In theory, yes, if your intention was to just turn 90 and pitch in a straight air with body facing away... the thing is that this is a very unnatural flying stance for snowboarding... you rarely see it base jumping or not, it seems easy but is proven not to be.
  8. How much of this stuff is going on? The Apooopa event, put on by America's Popularest Obnoxious Obese Parachuters of America who jump during the daytime with cameras and fireworks and stuff, seemed to be a break through for snowboard base. 6 people jumped boards, that may even double the total amount ever. at Apoopa these people jumped snowboards: Mark Ridley Jim Rippey Joel Coy Jeb Browning before that I can think of Barlia, and Jaap Suter that jumped actual snowboards not skyboards or whatever. who else? has anyone else been hucking the snowboards lately? can you please let us know if you are having the same findings? Other Apooopa highlights included telemark ski base by rjgill. Can anyone report another instance of tele-base or is this another first?? Snowlerblade base. wow, cool when are we gonna get to attend an EPOOOPE?.. European Putridly Odorsome Ostentacious Overgrown-haired Parachuters of Europe who jump legal cliffs in the daytime and dont tell anyone about it... cant wait... lets get it on. Edit to remove name of jumper, by request of jumper. ~TA
  9. yes, you may. I think this will be the weekend that we see telmark ski base and snowlerblade base... monoboard base needs to be revisited after clifhuckstable got a D on his first and last attempt at it...anyone? oh yeah, and if it can be arranged ostrich base is still the best idea going.

    When do you pull?

    I was looking for the option of: high enough to be sure to make it to the LZ or perhaps the option of about 300ft. every jump is different but 300 off the deck is a pretty frequent time for me to reach back and toss out that pc thingy your poll grade: C- nice effort though
  14. Good question. my answer is that no it isn't a "good idea"... how could it be? in my book, no harm no foul. if it worked, it would have a positive trickle down effect in the sport, ie. a youthful locals scene at the bridge, that would create more fun people to jump with and new creative ways to have fun basing off the bridge. miles is a good teacher. we dont even know in what manner he was planning to throw them off the bridge if at all. but getting youth into base in Twin is good clean fun. Miles is a good role model for kids that age. another way to look at it is that people get injured in sports all the time, people who are good, people who are bad, people who are new. it doesnt mean they will stop letting us jump if people get hurt. to Tom, indeed the overhanging KL tower isn't all that malaysia has to offer. I have seen footy of people slamming into all kinds of stuff in malaysia. I was hard on you, but your points are more than frequently... wrong. to way2cool, i wasnt drunk
  15. Oh Tom you are such a stiff.. and WRONG, you are always wrong. here is a quote from a locked thread: "I disagree. Some of the events in Malaysia have involved nearly as many jumpers, making more jumps, from a significantly more technical object, without the incident count. In my opinion, the difference is largely the approach of the jumpers, but that mostly came from the ability of the organizers in Malaysia to ride herd more closely (which is almost impossible in Moab due to the large number of exit points, and the fact that you don't need the organizers permission to just show up and jump)." you are totally wrong. how is massively overhanging 1000ft tower more technical than a sub 500ft cliff? perhaps LZ perhaps not. to me the difference is that the jumpers in KL get scraped up off the ground, cuz it is hard to hit that object versus the guys in moab who get caught up on the wall. less spectacle in KL, more or similar injuries. and also YOU DONT JUMP, so of course you were not in Malaysia, if you had been you would know that people broke themselves off hard there this year... broken backs, ankles, heals, teeth, all kinds of stuff. miserable painful injuries that may or may not have been posted by the organizers who wanted to portray a success story. You just take the opportunity to kiss their asses because they also kiss your ass and it is a big cyclical butt kissing fest kind of like a circle jerk. people: don't listen to Tom, he is wrong. he doesnt know what he is talking about at all and he really should not be considered an authority.
  16. Creativity. Fun. Girls. Progression. humor. The more the merrier right? College aged men and women do great in the air, and people who are virgins to the sport tend to have quite a bit of respect for it.
  17. cool! CSI is a great school. This is a great way to get more youth into BASE, and what a better place for it.

    Matt's ski base vid

    This is a link to a cool ski base shot. It was shot in the Jackson Hole Wyoming backcountry; near Rendevous with an avalanche! Way to go Mr. Combs. did he use a rope to get to the beginning of the shot or just ski kind of slow, hence not making this video clip? anyone? matt? check it out: http://www.baconzoo.com/MATTCOMBS_skibasejump030506.mov sick
  19. In reply to: "This is so lame! 60' might be ok for special olympics. Cool people (like frenchies) launch from 0', and they use no stinking skies either. " Hey Dip Stick... its spelled: skis
  20. Way to go deadmanwalking. You were able to perform the worlds lowest base jump freefall ever done before in the world. and you even threw your ski poles before you threw your pilot chute. were you stowed or stoned? All these haters can piss and moan about what they think is revolutionary or not, but the bottom line is you won!! you did the lowest one ever. it is an interesting aspect of this major revolution, that the line is crossed so frequently between ski jumps with and without parachutes. Today I saw a fellow huck one of our local ski base objects raw dawg. I am keen to get some follow cam of him off of it and I will for sure use my parachute. There are nordic ski jumpers doing 8.5 second flights sans parachute. people are going bigger more and more frequently because we are evolving to have more skill in the air allowing for more prepared and calculated impacts. Further, with the increase in popularity of anabolic steroids in both skiing and base, we will continue to see the revolution revolutionate revolutionarily.
  21. There is a serac jump with near glacier/ wall strike in a video called "focused" purchase here: http://www.digitaldividecwn.com/msp/catalog/index.php?manufacturers_id=25
  22. I dont think that a .83 wingloading is "inherently dangerous" ... just pay attantion to how your canopy behaves and dont jump anything unless you know you can stick it. IF you are worried about hard landings, then wear good gear be ready to pound in. Flare the canopy. You and your buddy should not have too high of expectations from these forums. Talk to your manufacturers, they are very helpful, Talk to your friends that jump, video each other. Try to spend a bunch of time under your canopy by sky diving or hill soaring or jumping easy objects, anything at all. you got it bro
  23. IN REPLY TO: "If you act like a bunch of punk ass kids (with giant attitudes), you get treated as such. Act like adults, and get treated as adults. " TREE... YOU ARE STEALING THIS LINE FROM TOM, YOU SOUND LIKE A DAD OR A PRINCIPLE OF THE HIGH SCHOOL. I feel for you because you have no idea what punk ass kids really behave like... none if these guys are as bad as the kind of punk ass kids that will likely be balls deep on your daughter before you know it. you have a giant atttitude as well tree, yours is just one of a big boring moustache having pig who is letting all the fun pass him by. and oh yeah... there is nothing wrong with Jimmy hanging out with a 16 year old girl, just nothing at all. young adults these days mingle withh other young adults... it is a generation thing TREE.
  24. IN REPLY TO: Sure. But looked at it in BASE-ethics specific terms: Example: Action: I wander through your city and jump a building in daylight, nearly getting busted and heating things up nicely for you and your crew. Attitude 1: I hold a press conference, taunt the cops, and declare myself "god of the skies, and world's best BASE jumper." Attitude 2: I call you guys up and explain that I didn't know there were any locals, and apologize for bringing the heat onto your site. My actions are driven by my attitudes, in either case. WRONG AGAIN... your attitude 1 and attitude 2 are both actions... your wrong JIMMY IS RIGHT!
