Would you try base-jumping after skydiving?

Discussion in 'Skydiving videos and photos' started by Starving.student, Aug 23, 2012.

  1. I was wondering how many of you have transferred over to other flying sports after skydiving. Marina Bay has this sick New Year's Base Jumping thing. Video below:

    Did you find the skills transferred over? Would you make the change? Anyone with base jumping stories. PS I love these videos, I wonder how they're shot.
  2. Man, or wingsuit diving.

    This is so intense. I would be terrified. Do you get used to the feeling of being in the air after the first few times?

    I've seen the wingsuit diving things before and I will tell you right now.... No way. I want a parachute. Period.

    I totally agree, how useful can a wingsuit be when you get close the ground? Although if you could land like a bird, that would be pretty cool. I imagine this would take a tonnnn of training.

    Look at the landing from this one:

    No parachute. *shudders*

    Awww! That's brutal. Poor guy. Why on earth would he test from only 5 floors, though, and then think he could jump off the Tower and it work the same way??
  7. I don't know! I guess he was trying to prove something. It looks like he's wearing a pile of trenchcoats, not even a wingsuit. Man, poor guy, good thing smart material exists now, i think that's the key to wingsuits...

    There are some things I would probably not do, here on this page are a few of them :)

    I think that Skydiving is for me enough for now.
