About the New BASE Wiki.

Prerequisites

This page is a chapter in 'BASE Wiki Getting into BASE'

BLiNC Magazine does NOT recommend ANYONE to get into BASE. It takes a certain type of person to become a BASE jumper and more likely than not, you are not that person.

This WIKI, while full of useful information, will NOT adequately prepare you to make a BASE jump!

For many experienced jumpers, BASE is an incredibly rewarding activity. It is more than a sport, and it has the potential to affect your life in many different ways, both positive, and negative. Few jumpers regret getting into BASE. Nevertheless…

Don’t Do It

However, in case you’re unable to shake the desire to throw yourself towards the planet, BLiNC allows you to explore one possible way to get into it.

BASE is extremely difficult, so, if some day, (despite our advice) you find yourself at the edge for the first time, make sure you are ready. Not just physically, but mentally too; you are about to enter a whole new world.

Welcome to BLiNC, explore, read, understand, and Good Luck.

There are many ways to get into BASE and many opinions on BASE out there, make sure you talk to many different people and read all the available Resources before making that first jump.

BLiNC suggests the following steps:

  1. Make sure you gain an Understanding of what BASE really is. Your idea of BASE might be more romantic than what the reality is. Reconsider whether BASE is what you really want.
  2. Make sure you are the Type of Person that will make a good BASE jumper. Reconsider if you are what BASE really wants.
  3. Tell your Friends and Family about your plans.
  4. Become an expert at Skydiving with a focus on BASE Jumping skills such as canopy control.
