Free Fall Suspension: The Challenge (4th Run)

The pioneers of free fall suspension at Sinner Team in Moscow have just put together an amazing new video (vimeo.com/47674716) documenting nine new free fall suspension jumps. I’ve said it before, but this to me is the most exciting thing to happen in suspension for a long time, and on the scale of “fun” in suspension, blows away spinning beams, while also being incredibly pure and profound. Not only that, but the way they do it is a pinnacle of safety and professionalism. It makes me very proud to be a part of this community when I see things like this. Watch this full-screen!

There’s also a video folder here — vimeo.com/album/2041995 — that contains all four long videos they’ve done, which show lots of different jumps from people of all different ages, weights, genders, and lifestyles doing them without problems. Anyone can do this with the right training and attention to safety.

On that note I want to mention that on the 28th to 30th of September they are planning one more jumping event, and these are all legal jumps from a building near the Moscow centre, which also coincides with a party they’re throwing to celebrate the team’s 4th birthday (how thrilled am I that my birthday coincides with this team and this event!). The third day will be fairly open and will provide information to those planning jumps in the future, making it the final open event of “The Challenge”. After this they are starting to make a full movie which will accurately tell the story of how this all came about. A flight from New York City to Moscow is only about $500 according to a quick check on Expedia, and I’m sure it can be found cheaper with a minimum of searching. What’s stopping you?

  1. Want.To.Do. And will – one day.
    Unfortunately, travel to Russia unfortunately involves more than buying a ticket – one needs a visum to visit the country.
