Extreme Sports: Sibu International Base Jump

2년 전


After months of planning, the Sibu International Base Jump is finally on. A total of 34 base jumpers from 14 countries arrived in Sibu to take in the base jump and 2018 marks the 10th Anniversary of this event.


Jumpers leap from Wisma Sanyan which at 126 metres is the tallest building in Sarawak.


This international event is eagerly anticipated by both the locals and jumpers alike.


At the jumping platform, I managed to take photo just as the jumper leap off the building.


The jumpers at the platform getting ready to jump.


As this the 10th Anniversary of the base jump, we hold a superhero costume contest. This is me with Wonder Woman.


Jumpers painstakingly fold their parachutes after each jump.

I am very fortunate that I can observe the base jumping at close range. Here is my picture with the two jumpers before they take the plunge.


The tents next to the landing point is where the carnival in conjunction with the Sibu International Base Jump is held.


We held a welcoming dinner for all the base jumpers.


I am all strapped up but not ready for tandem jumping yet. Perhaps next year.

I love this sports ... how and where can I join?

·

You need 100-150 hours of sky diving before you are eligible to do base jumping. Just apply and the committee will select you based on your experience. You can message me.

100-150 hours of sky diving >>> seems I need to start sky diving first ... I am new in this and this looks charming to me. Also what country are you in, do you have any club or membership for Pakistan?

I am from Malaysia and we do have a Malaysia Base Jump Association.

thanks for the info ... seems I need to update my profile or you guys also take trainees ... I just want to enjoy the excitement of jumping from a building, not sure how am I going to react in at the moment of jump :p

So you better start off with sky diving first and then proceed to base jumping.

Looks like a lot of fun but I don't think I'd want to be one of the jumpers. Lol. I see you were able to be photographed with Wonder Woman. Thanks for sharing

I don't have the guts to jump either. But it is so thrilling to see the jumpers gliding in the sky

Wonder Woman isn't afraid to follow Superman.

You need 100-150 hours of skydiving before you can do base jumping. These guys are very experienced.

My friend @basejumper would be very interested in this. What an exhilarating thing to watch. Hope you get that tandem in next year!
