Friday Freakout: BASE Jumper Survives Cliff Strike

Posted by Andrew R.

A cliff strike while BASE jumping can really mess up your day, especially when it ends with a broken pelvis followed by 9 months of recovery. While always wear protective gear is never a bad idea, I think the take-away from this incident is to practice tracking off a more forgiving exit point and always remember to steer your canopy above the line twists. Heal fast mate.
