how 'dangerous' is base jumping? apart from the whole falling to earth thing, it looks like more fun than skydiving to me.
is there anywhere legally you can do it?

Millions times more dangerous.

Read these: http://www.basejumper.com/cgi-bin/cms/jump.cgi?Detailed=765

Then read the BASE Fatality List: http://www.splatula.com/bfl/

Still interested?


Not all bad though. It is a great sport to be around (and doing one day...) and there are always good experiences aswell as bad.

Fantastic story: http://www.basejumper.com/cgi-bin/cms/jump.cgi?Detailed=764 Long but like so many jumps...

Cracking quotes: http://www.basejumper.com/Articles/General/Nuggets_735.html
Some gems in there. Worth the read...


On the legality... Its illegal (unless you have the site owners permission) in Australia but legal in national parks in Qld.
Its not illegal over here but most sites you can get busted for trespassing.
My mate and some of his jumping firends did a building in south London (that the 2 of us recce'd months ago). Security called the cops and they were ready to jump when the cops arrived and went into the building. Fuck it, they are running up... Either get caught or take the 10 second express down... And they did and got away... :D

Nice. I've jumped there...

My first was a SL there. I was 2nd out aswell. 1st guy was shit and didn't even try and steer... Ended up over a mile away on the other side of the railway line... :D

Ha! Ok.... At least he went away from the Lions then!

During the ascent in the open sided plane, my GF who was first out was sititing across from the open hole where a door should be...

just sitting on the floor like we all were...

Her legs were too short to reach across the plane to brace herself, so as we climbed and turned and banked, we all slid across the floor.... The rest of us could just put our feet against the opposite wall... but she had to do a BIG spread and try to catch the door edge!

But as you'll know.... It's almost impossible to fall out anyway.... the wind blows you back in.
