  4. I asked the same thing. I better get an answer soon or bad things will happen...bad things!

  5. That video get's me so freakin' pumped up...it's a major adrenalin rush just watching them do what they do. They are the greatest group of guys who are passionate about the sport, traveling around the world (literally) doing what they love.

    That video was shot in Italy...I believe they are working on getting to dive in the Grand Canyon soon!

  6. AWESOME!!! that must be some kinda rush, i felt pumped up just watching it !

    Not sure but I'm dying to find out myself...will email Shannon and find out.

  8. I didnt even know it was a competative sport, do they do it year-round, it looks like alot of practice and innovation would be involved.

  9. Please feel free to share this video with all your friends...

    Yes it is a competitive sport...there are many different events or challenges (for a lack of a better term). PD Factory Team also does the free style (I think it's called) where they do formations. There are also contests that judge form and maneuverability, etc...

  11. FLIPSYDE LYRICS

    "Someday"

    [Chorus]
    Someday we gonna rise up on that wind you know
    Someday we gonna dance with those lions
    Someday we gonna break free from these chains and keep on flyin'

    [Verse 1]
    They tellin' me it's all good just wait
    You know you're gonna be there someday
    Sippin' on Jim Beam ok
    Gotta get these things one day
    Till then do another line you know
    Searching for that other high
    Stop or I gotta steal then steal
    Kill or I'm gonna be killed
    I got a sack in my pocket
    Conscious yellin' drop it
    You know we're gonna lose it someday
    And we tryin' to hold it all together but the devil is too clever so
    I'm gonna die you gonna die we gonna die Someday one day I said

    [Chorus]
    Someday we gonna rise up on the wind you know
    Someday we gonna dance with those lions
    Someday we gonna break free from these chains and keep on flyin'

    [Verse 2]
    Try to lie but it ain't me Ain't me
    Try to look but I can't see
    Can't stop right now cause I'm too far and I can't keep goin' cause it's too hard
    In the day in the night it's the same thing
    On the field on the block it's the same game
    On the real if you stop then it's no pain but if you can't feel pain then it's no gain
    Rearrange and you change and it's all bad and you try to maintain but you fall back
    And you crawl and you slip and you slide down
    Wanna make it to the top better start now
    So I hold my soul and I die hard
    All alone in the night in the graveyard
    Someday one day I'm gonna be free and they won't try to kill me for being me
    Hey someday

    [Chorus]
    Someday we gonna rise up on that wind you know
    Someday we gonna dance with those lions
    Someday we gonna break free from these chains and keep on flyin'

    If you know how this is
    Gonna see it's not that easy
    Don't stop get it till it's done
    From where you are or have begun
    I said keep on try a little harder to see everything you need to be
    Believe in your dreams
    That you see when you're asleep

    [Chorus]
    Someday we gonna rise up on that wind you know
    Someday we gonna dance with those lions
    Someday we gonna break free from these chains and keep on flyin'

  12. very cool video. The mountain scenes are great, but just the thought of doing the base jumps off of a giant rock is scary as hell!

    Yeah, my buddy was telling me that the base jumps really are scary!!! You don't have much time to think and if you mess up...

  14. PD Factory will also be releasing a full length documentary early part of next year...so stay tuned!

    yeah, my dreams start out like the beautiful snow covered mountain scenes... but end up with me crashing into the concrete dam or mountain side. Fortunately I wake before any pain occurs.

    The documentary should be cool if its filmed as well as that trailor. much cooler than the normal airplane jump stuff you see on tv.

  16. Never got to do the free fall stuff but the rush from what I did do was amazing. I wish I could of went into that type of sky diving.

    Here's a clip of what I did in the army

  17. didn't realize Jayhawkk was typing while I was posting.

    The line 'much cooler than the normal airplane jump stuff you see on tv.' should have read 'much cooler than the normal airplane jump stuff you see on tv, but the army training jump type footage is really cool too... "

    TSC

  18. I'm always typing you should know that by now :P

  19. Damn J, that is cool as hell...perfect song for the video man!

  20. Those videos are sweet. And i really like the music for both of them. I really like the someday song.

  21. thats nuts! what are they competing for in the video? I cant see how that is a comp. Was that actually comp footage? Looks like quite a time. I would seriously give up bodybuilding if I did all that stuff. Just the feeling of being free, its like flying down the freeway driving a car at top speed but only thing your in the air, what a rush.

    The video is just their promotional trailer...the world finals competition they won took place in Europe somewhere.

  23. How long has your friend been skydiving and how/when did he get started???

    He actually started when he was in college so I'd say he's been doing it for 10+ years

  30. Hey Stryder, Ask your friend if he has ever encountered any sketchy wind currents down those mountain decents. I'd be surprised if he says no. The roll down through the rock cutout is classic.

  31. felt the need to bump this
