BASE jumping, is an extremely dangerous activity where participants jump from fixed objects and use a parachute to break their fall. “BASE” is an acronym that stands for four categories of fixed objects from which one can jump: Bridges, Antennas, Skyscrapers, and Earth (cliffs). Surreptitious BASE jumps are often made from tall buildings and antenna towers. Many such BASE jumps must be covert because the owners of these objects are generally reluctant to allow their object to be used as a platform.
BASE jumpers have to overcome two major obstacles: low altitude and the proximity of the BASE object. Skydivers open their chutes at around 2,000 feet. This gives them time to deploy the parachutes gradually (reducing line tangles and a sudden jerk on the diver) using a device called a slider. If there is a problem with the main parachute, they can still deploy their back-up chute.
BASE jumpers have generally over 100 regular skydiving jumps done before they attempt a BASE jump, and they usually have an experienced BASE jumper who mentors them on the skills necessary to jump safely. No one should attempt BASE jumping without a lot of training, experience and a good life insurance policy.
