Ten days ago, our friend Stanislav, from the Sinner Team in Russia, was injured while performing a BASE jump. As many of you know, Stanislav is probably the world’s expert in Free Fall Suspension, and is also an experienced BASE jumper. Even with appropriate precautions taken, there are always dangers involved in both activities. So, we would not begin this entry without saying: Please do not attempt either activity without professional help and oversight!
From Stanislav Aksenov
7-th June we went to open a new jumping spot, it is not far from Moscow, about 120km. The place is really unique and i was dreaming to make there free fall suspensions since I’ve jumped there first time (I was base jumping there with my parachute, no hooks). The way I like to make suspensions means to make the real adventure, including the trip, the cool place, night with the fire before the jump and a chance to feel the place, to remember it for the whole rest of your life. That’s why I really love the antennas we used this time.
First of all, after going there in a car, you need to take a boat and to swim across the Volga river (this is a famous Russian river, one of the biggest ones).
