Recently I was contacted by cheri sundae productions, who expressed interest in airing some of my canopy footage on the Travel Channel‘s ”When Vacations Attack“.
Even though the shot was my idea, I have to give credit to Brianne Thompson of AXIS Flight School for making it happen Recorded by two back-to-back GoPro‘s (see right), the individual footage was put together and then slomo’d to get the desired effect.

I received a little love from iLoveSkydiving.org, who reposted a malfunction video I posted on YouTube last year. Thanks guys and keep up the good work!!!
“This has to be one of the longest parachute malfunctions I’ve ever seen. In fact, I made a sandwich halfway through it. Long story short, Niklas Daniel of AXIS Flight School intended to do a high altitude hop and pop to work on some canopy flocking, but got an interesting malfunction instead. Sure, a hook knife might have done the trick, but Nick opted to ride it out until 4,000 feet before chopping so that his canopy wouldn’t drift too far away from the DZ. And of all the days for this to happen… it was April Fool’s Day.” – iLoveSkydiving.org
