Base jumping. The most dangerous kind of extreme.

Why base jumping is considered the most dangerous kind of extreme
Base jumping is rightly considered a more dangerous form of hobby than its ancestor – parachuting. The difference lies in the fact that in parachuting, jumps take place from significantly higher altitudes, to which athletes are delivered using aircraft (airplanes, helicopters, balloons, etc.). At the same time, the recommended distance to the ground, at which it is necessary to open the parachute, is about 500-600 meters. In this case, in case of failure of the main parachute, the person has 10-11 seconds to free from the idle and the deployment of a reserve parachute. Base jumpers jump from a much lower height and the entire flight usually takes less than 6 seconds. Spare parachute just becomes useless. The problem is that due to the lower falling speed, the required exhaust force of the exhaust parachute to open the main dome is simply not enough. Therefore, traditional parachutes are not suitable for base jumping. For this extreme hobby, special satchels and parachutes equipped with large exhaust domes are being developed. Continue reading

They allowed the boy not to go to school and train hard, believing that with the help of the board their son would get rich. Continue reading

JEAN-PHILIPPE AUCLAIR – REAL EXTREME!

Freestyler Jean-Philippe Oakler was born in Saint-Foix, Quebec on August 22, 1977. He was known by the nickname J.P. At a young age he showed talent in the traditional disciplines of skiing. However, all the basic rules and requirements established by FIS severely limited his freedom, so JP left the classic freestyle and started inventing his own tricks.

He had like-minded people like Vincent Dorion and Shane Zox, JF Cusson and Mike Douglas. Newspapers dubbed the team “The New Canadian Air Force.” The young extremal regularly won prizes in big air. At the age of 34, he moved to live in the mountainous Switzerland – the dream of any skier.

In order to get permission to perform new tricks on the mogul highway, J.P. sometimes had to do paperwork for several months. Continue reading
