Unofficial BASE Jumping Records updated
The following list of BASE records is not meant to be taken seriously. It is mostly here because asking about a particular type of BASE record on the forums happens very often. Unfortunately, many records are hard to verify, hard to define, and hard to accomplish. The information below can easily be wrong. If you have more correct information, please leave a comment. Meanwhile, consider the list below a joke for entertainment purposes only.

|the Lowest Free Fall. I remember seeing the photos in one of the early Base magazines when I was just starting off. He was using one of the old PI 52' pilot chutes. The canopy didn't seem much larger!!!|
Lowest unpacked jump is atleast 102ft. You can see the vid on skydivingmovies.com by Portland Base Crew
|Yeah, it was 587 again doing the 102 that time.|
Shortest time, DJ Higgins was on that load, I think Ray Loslie made a jump or two. It was in the Portland area. Some of the jumps were PCA or static line.
