Roughcuts - Empuria Brava, April 2009

Cleaning up my harddrive I find all kinds of fun shots from boogies I attended the past year. I didnt always edit these into full videos, so to catch up, here are a few:

Having fun flying a PF Acro around a flock in Empuria Brava.
Ludwig, Martin, Tristan, Werner and friends flying in formation. Lots of wind, so long spot :)


Roughcuts - August 2010 - Ireland

Cleaning up my harddrive I find all kinds of fun shots from boogies I attended the past year. I didnt always edit these into full videos, so to catch up, here are a few:

Flying my trusty PF Shadow with the Irish crew through some (Ireland style) blue skies.

Note: this video is a good show and tell of why EVERYONE should always do a proper wave-off before pulling. Regardless if its a solo or a formation. Let others know a canopy is coming. Here it wasnt an issue (the no wide-angle shot makes it look closer than it was) but definately would have been nasty had the camera been in the no-fly zone behind the person. Wave off! Always!

Check it out!

Wingsuit flying Girl

Here is some footage filmed recently with Géraldine Fasnacht.
I will be following this extraordinary woman over the next few months making a documentary about extreme sports.
The documentary is a close up look at people involved in ‘extreme’ sports... We would hope to give the viewer an insight into some of the reasons why they do what they do.

Goovinn sponsoring the world's fastest wingsuit flyer!

The 9th of February 2011 we celebrated Goovinn's 3rd birthday. And what a celebration! We celebrated with starting up a breath-taking sponsoring contract of the world's fastest flying human being.
Espen Fadnes - a Norwegian.
This is about wingsuiting from high cliffs and in even higher speed. Espen Fadnes is the man millions of people have watched on youtube flying just on an arm's lenght distance from the mountain face in his yellow wingsuit. In 2010 he won the title "The Worlds fastest flying human being" and today he is signing his first sponsoring contract. With a project management consultancy firm from Gothenburg in Sweden.

Roughcuts - Hoevenen, July 2010

Cleaning up my harddrive I find all kinds of fun shots from boogies I attended the past year. I didnt always edit these into full videos, so to catch up, here are a few:

Here a shot from the start of 2010, captured on camera by Elias.
A funjump with Bart and Andrew at Hoevenen, heaving some fun from 10.000 ft in the hazy/rainy skies over the Antwerp harbour. Landing in the pool was the aim, but missing it I kicked my shoe in to at least touch some water. Luckely it hit the water in a way that kept the insides dry.
Fun times! Audio was f&ked up somehow, so slapped some music under it :)
Enjoy!

Man vs Wild

An announcement for Bear Grylls TV show to be aired this saterday:

"MAN VS. WILD"

Just when you think Bear Grylls can't top himself when it comes to far-flung destinations or adventures, he heads to a South Pacific deserted island, becomes a human glider by wearing a "wingsuit" and builds a buggy from a wrecked aircraft. That last one may have come in handy on "Lost." 9 p.m. Discovery


and one more snippet from another TV guide:

Bear was flown high over the Arizona desert, with its "parched landscape," "choking sands," and "deadly inhabitants" and jumped out wearing a wingsuit that enabled him to reach the ground safely, albeit at the cost of looking like Woody Allen fleeing imperial forces in Sleeper. "It's like landing in an oven," he gasped, once he was back on terra firma. "A very dry oven!"

2010 Norway Base Jumping

Base Jumping is a sport that really sees the best being brought out in all those involved. It is a sport that constantly asks us questions and makes us realise what we can do. When normal community asks why, our heart tells us what if we did not......

Given the right pathways, the right knowledge, the right guidance maybe you can do it too...

I have met some very amazing people, some of which I need to thank for helping put this video together. They include:

all the base jumpers from around the world that were in Lysebotn, Norway for the 2010 season,

CBS Courage in Sports Awards

Burbled PC

A video showing some long delays in deployment due to the massive burble created by the suit. Also notice the short fumble with the pilotchute. Though manageable in a skydive enviroment, these kind of delays can be lethal in BASE. Take care and adjust opening deployment accordingly.
