Remi Kajala tracks over Switzerland
If you're a BASE jumper, you've undoubtedly heard of the Raven tracking suit. Designed by rockstar tracker Remi Kajala, the suit's powerful profile is already getting rave reviews. With the introduction of the suit, Remi is offering a "tracking school" to take students' tracking skills to the next level. Remi's the best tracker in the world -- no exaggeration -- so even veteran trackers will be sure to learn a thing or two. Courses will take place in Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland, and the following dates have been confirmed so far:
- 1st Course: 17th to 22nd April
- 2nd Course: 27th to 31st May
- 3rd Course: 2nd to 8th June
Course slots are almost full as of today, so be quick: sign up through the Raven Facebook page.
The phenomenon most skydivers and BASE jumpers know as "opening shock" is actually a two-part process that depends on a heap of variables. Here's the science between the two components -- namely, snatch force and inflation force -- so you can better understand how to control them.
Now that the dates are confirmed, it's time to make plans to fly to the expensive fjordy country and BASE jump from some very, very tall cliff exit points. (Bonus: if you're new to the sport, Kjerag is an excellent place to learn.) Who else is going?
Squirrel is introducing much more to the BASE jumping and skydiving world than just their cutting-edge wingsuits -- they're doing BASE containers, canopies and tracking suits, too. The fun part: I'm appearing half-naked in their latest campaign. Tee hee.
