Distracted BASE Jumper Pulls Low

Posted by Andrew R.

This jump might not outdo this other crazy low pull, but it’s still too close for comfort. According to this BASE jumper, he unintentionally pulled low because he got distracted by his own shadow on the ground. As a result, he panicked when reaching for his pilot chute once he realized he was too low. Lesson learned: when you see your own shadow, it’s time to pull! Pay attention and be safe. How low would you say he was once his canopy was fully open?
