I'm sure you've taken the time to read the 'getting into base' articles on this site and similar resources elsewhere, and so I'm sure you're aware that you fall far short of the experience levels and currency that current wisdom would suggest having before starting BASE.

So my question to you would be: what makes you special?

If you decide to jump, you are increasing your risks of death (or worse) without achieving all of the suggested requirements. If you are caught by The International BASE Association Enforcement, you could also receive strict punishments such as the dreaded, 'wagging finger'.


My 2 cents: Hang around BASE for awhile. Listen to every BASE jumper's advice but make all your own decisions. Have fun and don't ever let yourself get pressured into anything or out of anything.

I am not going to jump yet, i know i don't have the experience, i am just looking to get in contact with experienced base jumpers so i can get tips on what i should be practising. And by the way i've been in extreme sports for over 15 years, jumped 60foot cliffs with my snowbord, 150foot freestyle jumps on my motocross many times, so i have some knowledge on how to control my self in the air. But thanks for the concern.

"i've been in extreme sports for over 15 years"

Then why don't you know any Canadian BASE jumpers?

It's a catch 22! You don't know any base jumpers because you've never base jumped. How can you base jump if you don't know any base jumpers? What's a skydiver to do? Laugh

Almost 30 jumps a year. That's better then 2 jumps a month. Maybe you don't know any of the BASE jumpers at your DZ because you're so focused on skydiving.

Don't worry about these dicks. The reason they are fucking you around is because there are no base jumpers in Canada. There was one, but he left.

There are 4 in the USA and 7 in Europe as far as I know.

well... as he has done some research and found out that there is no base jumping material either, I guess that does not really matter.
