Ted Rudd Can't Post

Was searching through old you tube videos of tracking from the early 2000's era amd ca,e across this guy tracking what appears to be Norway nit walls. WOW. I had never heard of him before I found his videos amd was wondering if he just stopped jumping or the other, darker,possibility. Alas, I found him on the BFL....very sad. I bring him up here because I wasn't aware that that level of proximity tracking even existed at that point in time. This guy was just going so hard that it doesn't surprise me he wound up going in. Sad. Does anybody have any stories about this guy? Was he one of the top trackers of his time? Even by today's standards this guy was amazing flying his body. Also, he's flying a very basic two piece suit, making it that much more impressive.

I don't know any of these people, but I just want to plug Superterminal for early terrain flying. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8fsAp90otdw&t=137s

Superterminal, it is where the story starts !

Ted Died jumping, he was on of the bests at this time and he probably still is as not a lot of people can redo what he does in his 2 pieces tracksuit.

Ted was a good friend and an innovator who saw the potential that exists in tracking. Too bad he had to go before he could fully see how the potential is being explored. Also it´s worth to mention that we spoke a lot with Ted while working on the PTS project and he shared a lot of his thoughts on it so his legacy exists also in the suit.

Re: [Rover] Ted Rudd [In reply to] Can't Post

There is a video named «last load with Ted» where he is tracking like the devil. If my memory serves me right it was filmed by Livia and it might be on facebook somewhere. Mad skills and hardcore...

This was a good one:

As for the guy who did the slider down 15+ sec delay. He escaped w/o injury but from the look of his canopy, he was extremely lucky he didn't go in. He had 5 lines brake including a few other things that will need to be repaired before the rig is jumpable again.

Lesson from this, if you have multiple rigs, and do not remember how it was packed...Skip the load and repack it. Especially if you store the rig without an attached PC (Which could aid in remembering how it was packed. If you have a rig with a 46 on it, you can guess it was not packed slider up.)

Re: [Rover] Ted Rudd [In reply to] Can't Post

I can’t believe how flat some of those jumps looked. That’s insane he was doing that in a regular two piece. Also, the midgets are always fun to look at do normal stuff. There has to be a midget somewhere around the globe jumping. ????

He's Italian. And tracks like a monster. You can run into him at Brento quite often.

I also know an Aussie who may qualify, depending on your definitions.

Re: [TomAiello] Ted Rudd [In reply to] Can't Post

is Ted Ruud, different person than Eilive (sp?) Ruud?

Met Eilive 6 - 8" years ago in Northern Norway.
Eilive could most definitely fly.
Not sure how he finally got caught out @ little colorado.

He was a good guy.

Yes. Different guy. Ted was a Kiwi and Eiliv was a Norwegian.

Photo of one of our old guest books from BASE dinners at our house (Ted's first trip to Twin Falls).

Ted apparently found my stature unimpressive.

Are confirming the existence of a BASE jumping midget? If so, how do they get gear. All custom. They would be very fun to throw off a terminal wall.

All BASE gear is custom anyway. I don't know that I've ever seen a manufacturer deliver a harness that wasn't custom sized to the order.

I think he has more than a thousand jumps, so, yes, I'd say he's having fun.
