Two college buds of mine were avid skydivers (while in college). They said that 90% of the deaths/accidents/injuries are a result of people trying tricks or fancy maneuvers (usually too close to the ground to recover).

That guy did get lucky.... that reserve chute sure did take its own sweet time to open, though.

Man, he had what, 5 seconds to spare when that chute finally caught air? Too close for comfort.

Lucky guy! Oh well I don't think the ropes on my snowboard will get caught in my go pro camera. =P

Holy crap. That was unreal. I can't believe it didn't take his head off. Well, at least you know GoPro mounts are sturdy as heck...
