Friday Freakout: BASE Jumper Saved, Almost Jumps Without Leg Straps!

Posted by Andrew R.

This incident isn’t new, but we haven’t posted it yet and it’s worth sharing to raise awareness of the importance to pay attention to detail when BASE jumping. Douggs does a great job of explaining the incident in the video, and he goes on to write: “So many new jumpers come into this sport thinking it’s all about GoPro’s and social media, and they forget the fundamentals of how serious and dangerous this sport can be if respect is not given to every aspect of it. I’m glad I saved someone’s life, but each jumper must have the ability to save their own life on each and every jump.”
