Please help improve this article by adding reliable references . Unsourced material may be challenged and removed. (November 2007) BASE jumping is a sport involving the use of a parachute to jump from fixed objects. "BASE" is an apronym that stands for the four categories of fixed objects from which one can jump:
  • B uilding A ntenna (an uninhabited tower such as an aerial mast) S pan (a bridge or arch) E arth (a cliff or other natural formation)
The acronym "BASE" was coined by film-maker Carl Boenish , his wife Jean Boenish, Phil Smith, and Phil Mayfield. Carl was the real catalyst behind modern BASE jumping, and in 1978 filmed the first BASE jumps (from El Capitan , in Yosemite National Park ) to be made using ram-air parachutes and the freefall tracking technique. While BASE jumps had been made prior to that time, the El Capitan activity was the effective birth of what is now called BASE jumping. BASE jumping is significantly more dangerous than similar sports such as skydiving from aircraft, and is currently regarded by many as a fringe extreme sport or stunt BASE numbers are awarded to those who have made at least one jump from each of the four categories. When Phil Smith and Phil Mayfield jumped together from a Houston skyscraper on January 18th, 1981, they became the first to attain the exclusive BASE numbers (BASE #1 and #2, respectively), having already jumped from antennae, spans, and earthen objects. Jean and Carl Boenish qualified for BASE numbers 3 and 4 soon after. A separate "award" was soon enacted for Night BASE jumping when Mayfield completed each category at night, becoming Night BASE #1, with Smith qualifying a few weeks later.

For BASE jumpers, leaping out of an airplane at 15,000 feet and freefalling at well over 100 mph isn't quite daring enough. To make things more interesting, they jump off various cliffs and man-made objects, usually at a low altitude with only a few seconds to deploy the parachute, and virtually no time at all to deal with problems or malfunctions. BASE jumping is so incredibly risky that it's actually illegal in many places. The name "BASE jumping" is an acronym for the four types of objects that jumpers leap from:

A personal view
The first time I had heard of El Capitan, more than fifteen years ago, was not from another climber, but from a French army officer of the Air Force Fusilliers Commandos . He was traveling to California and couldn't pass up on the opportunity. He hiked by himself in the afternoon to the top of the mountain, waited a few hours into the night, and jumped and landed in the dark without any fear. Aftewards, he had a custom T-shirt made, and was amused to see how some American skydivers seemed outraged. BASE jumping refers to the four general types of structures from which people jump: Buildings, Antennas, Spans (bridges) and Earth (cliffs). It is the most extreme form of skydiving because altitudes can be ridiculously low, the objects themselves represent a hazard, and landing areas can be quite small. Of course, the more extreme it is, the more it attracts some people. At one point, I looked seriously into it, but fortunately :-) I was distracted by other pursuits. The sport really begin in earnest in 1978, when freefall photographer Carl Boenish led a group of jumpers to El Capitan's summit and produced a spectacular short film of their skydives. The film inspired jumpers to visit Yosemite Valley and NPS, not knowing how to

Delving fully into the history of base jumping is outside the scope of this web site. However, in brief, here s how the sport evolved.
By Nick Di Giovanni, BASE 194 Delving fully into the history of BASE jumping is outside the scope of this web site. However, in brief, here's how the sport evolved. A note to Para-historians, I learned early two people can see the same thing yet disagree on what they saw, so be careful. A Word About Carl Boenish
Carl Boenish is known as the "Father of Modern BASE jumping." This is because he is the first to apply modern gear (ram air parachutes) and modern freefall techniques (tracking) to fixed object jumps. He is also the first to show the world through his films that fixed object jumps are not one-off stunts but jumps that are actually repeatable. Known to his family as Ronnie, Carl is 21 years of age in 1960 when he begins jumping at the DZ in Lake Elsinore, California. He becomes an Electrical Engineer working for the Hughes Corporation and in 1966 he's heavily involved in photographing the early days of RW on the West Coast. One day in the summer of 1966 Carl hears a weird story. A story that would change the course of his life. Two skydivers from Barstow, California, Michael Pelky, an accountant, age 25 and Brian Schubert, a truck driver, age 26, decided to parachute off Yosemite's El Capitan. They jumped side by side on a Sunday afternoon at around 5:00 PM and both did decent delays but did not track away from the wall. Their round Paracommander canopies opened fine but the updrafts and swirling winds pushed them back into the face and both repeatedly banged into the wall on the way down. By the time they landed in the rocky talus below both are pretty beaten up. Pelky has numerous abrasions and a broken ankle. Schubert also had many abrasions plus a broken leg and broken foot. Both were ambulanced to a local hospital.
