Preparing for base season – wingsuit coaching with Jarno

A big part of base jumping is having the required skills to master the tools you use to have safe, and fun, flights off the cliffs. I spent a few days in Spain with the master of coaching, Jarno Cordia from Fly Like Brick. Here’s a quick preview of a few of the new skills Jarno passed along to me and my yellow Ghost 3 – I especially like the back to belly and vice versa transitions via a head down move.

Squirrel attack in Switzerland – magic flights in wonderful terrain

I have only a few words for this new video from Team Squirrel – just WOW! Very inspirational – really makes we want to fly even more.

Base jumping Smellveggen to lower ladder

Smellveggen to Lower Ladder – uncut

Here’s a little flashback to last summer in Norway. Just wanted to share the feeling of base jumping off the edge, flying from Smellveggen exit to landing at the Lower Ladder landing area. So the video and sound is uncut from my gopro, to share my point of view. At the exit I was trying to convince my friend Martin, who jumped with me, to land in the water just for the fun of it – but he did not seem very hooked on this particular idea.

The year before I actually decided myself to test out the Lysefjord water temperature. Take a look at these screen grabs from the video – sorry about the poor quality, but I decided to leave my Canon 5D behind on this jump.

I wish this little red boat would have driven the opposite way…would have been fun to try and land on it with my Atair Troll DW base jumping canopy

If you want to see the waterlanding in the Lysefjord, it is the last part of this video from 2011:

Base jumper in Phoenix-Fly tracking suit in Lauterbrunnen

Progression: Why track when you can POWER track?

Tracking is progressing – Check out super-tracker Rami Kajala’s latest video. To me it almost looks like he is flying a “shitty little wingsuit”. But in reality he is rocketing the new Phoenix-Fly Power Tracking Suit – or just PTS – to pure excellence. The lines Rami is flying stand out from anything I have ever seen, so lean forward and watch his latest video!

With Alex you should always expect the unexpected, in a good way that is, and this video certainly does not let anyone  down. Way to go Alex!
