Camera lost during wingsuit BASEjump.

My wife lost her Sony CX6 when the fixing bolt failed during deployment and the camera fell 600 feet or so into dense forest. (it was during a BASE jump)

This was 5 months ago. A couple of weeks back a friend of mine from Rome called me - a long story short - he has a sponsor and jumps with a logo'd wingsuit. The sponsor received a phone call from a guy called Aldo who was out picking mushrooms and found a video camera.

Aldo found the camera, dried it out and took out the memory card. He didn't manage to watch the videos but found some photos showing the sponsors logo and after a few phone calls he managed to track us down.

We met up with him to express our thanks at his efforts but having already written off the camera, 4+ months outdoors... at least we'd have the memory card back.

We charged the camera up out of curiosity and turned it on - it made some very strange noises and then started to work normally :)

Wingsuit Bag

If you're looking for a nice way to store/pack your wingsuit, PD just started selling Canopy storage bags. Luckely, the size of a packed wingsuit is roughly the same as that of a canopy.

Check out the news item here or order directly via the PD store.

The History of Nuit De La Glisse

Trying to get 30 years of history into one video is not easy, but we've put this short film together to let you know the history of the Nuit de la Glisse/ Perfect Moment.

Special Thanks go to the multiple directors involved over the last 30 years including Dick Barrymore, John Long and Bill Delaney and also all of the Riders. They have all contributed massively to the success of Nuit de la Glisse.

Remembering Steve Harrington

Jeff Donohue posted this to dropzone.com today:

A year ago tomorrow, our brother bird Steve Harrington had a tragic accident following the last jump of the 68 way in Elsinore.
Many of you jumped with Steve and knew the measure of the man - a quiet, unassuming guy who wanted nothing more (and nothing less) than to fly his wingsuit. He wasn't showy. He didn't care if there were cameras running or whether the jump was a "boring" small flock or a record. He just loved to fly.

On November 21, 2009, just a few of Steve's many friends got together to fly a missing man formation in his memory. The video from that day is here and a memorial page about Steve can be found here

I, for one, miss him. We will not see his like again.

Blue skies, Steve.

Me and a couple of friends on a skydiving holiday in Lodi, CA. 11 days and just under 100 jumps each, including my first wingsuit jump. Most of the footage is from a GoPro HD, or a CX105 with an Opteka .3.

Skydive Elsinore Wingsuit Policy changes

From DSE comes this safety announcement:
Due to VFR concerns and air traffic, we've made some small changes in how wingsuit patterns and exit order are managed.
Wingsuit patterns to the east of the DZ are no longer permitted.
Manifest has a wingsuit pattern briefing that will be given to you when you check in for jumptix/manifest.
Additionally, you must now notify Manifest and the pilot that you are wingsuiting.
Flock is building fast here, warm weather expected for much of the winter. C'mon down and get some airtime!

BASE gear - Balloon jump

This video shows a part of my training to get started on the wing suit BASE jump. For me it was very important to start slowly. Jumping equipment BASE jump from a safe height (5000ft) and still pulling high (2000ft) and landing in a totally unknown territory. If you want to know more about BASE jumping and wing suit, read on: http://www.adventurezone.com.br/blog/ ...
