Base jumping


Low Pressure Change (video)

Winter days are ahead, those Low Pressure days with low hanging clouds and misty rain and snow. Yet to come is that wonderful Change to sun and green when spring days arrive…

(Best enjoyed with good speaker/headphones)

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.


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:

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!

Introducing: Alexander Polli – Happy Base Jumper Extraordinaire

This weeks video of the week is a peak into the world of base jumper extraordinaire Alexander Polli. After roaming the cliffs of the world in his tracking suit for a few years, he has now taken up wingsuit proximity flying. 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!

Summer time in Norway 2012 – Base Jumping impressions at Kjerag

Spending a little time at Kjerag. A few days ago I brought my camera to the mountain to catch some of the action.

Base Jumping Heli Boogie Kjerag 2011 – Impressions

Spent one day at the Stavanger B.A.S.E. Klubb Heli Boogie at Kjerag 2011. This was for me a great opportunity to bring my camera along to catch some of the action. A perfect day to freeze some of the fantastic people for just a single moment – on the ground, on the mountain and in the air.

Let me know what you think!

Gary Connery Bremont Wingman “It’s finally happening, the landing is ON for this Wednesday!!!”

Wednesday May 23rd it’s GAME ON for Gary Connery’s wingsuit landing in a pile of boxes. After a month of waiting we finally get to see his spectacular stunt. According to his Twitter stream @GaryConnery he did some solid training in Brento Italy a few weeks back, perfecting his slow flying skills.

So, after carefully nursing his 18,600 boxes, and having his hair done, he looks to be set for a full action day tomorrow.

Stay tuned to a Vimeo or Youtube channel near you! (unless you are in the UK where you can watch it live on Sky News)

Getting Wings – Introducing Nikolaj (video included)

I would like to introduce Nikolaj, my good friend and traveling buddy from 2011. Nikolaj and I travelled Romsdalen, Switzerland and The Dolomites last year – what an epic trip. After tracking and doing aerials throughout his base jumping life, he decided last year that it was time to venture into wingsuit flying from the cliffs. So here’s a video from Nikolaj’s first year with the Phoenix Fly Prodigy 2.

The video was shot in Norway and Switzerland.

Nikolaj and I have planned a couple of trips for 2012. This year he will be flying his new Phoenix Fly Phantom 3, which he tested over sunny Skydive Portugal in

March. I will try to persuade him to write a couple of articles here on AdventureRocket in the coming months. I know he is really happy with his new Phantom 3, so maybe he will write about this experience when he get’s a chance to jump it form the vertical cliffs of Norway or the likes.
