About Pro BASE

Pro BASE started to organize BASE jumping competitions in 2008 with the legendary Spain BASE 08 event, held at the BALI Hotel in Spain. The huge success of this event led to repeat it the following year and we already started to think of how to expand this event and turn it into an entire tour of BASE jumping events. The ProBASE World Cup was born!! 

We continued with the SpainBASE 09 target landing event and added the Pro BASE Wingsuit Race in Lauterbrunnen which brought international attention to the ProBASE event concept as the most outrageous BASE jumping competition ever organized. From there we decided to split BASE jumping events into Target landing, Acrobatics, Wing suit flying and Tracking. In the future each discipline will have 2 main events per year, plus several Pro BASE qualifier events for each discipline.

What is Base jumping ?

BASE jumping is the activity of parachuting from a fixed object as opposed to skydiving, which is parachuting from an aircraft. Fixed objects can be buildings, antennas, smoke stacks, bridges, power towers, cliffs, cable cars, dams or any other object high enough to jump from.

The acronym B.A.S.E was coined by Carl Boenish and stands for Building, Antenna, Span, Earth which are the 4 most popular objects BASE jumpers practice their sport from

Necessities for an event

In order to set up a BASE jumping event or competition we need first of all an object. The object needs to be adequate for its purpose and needs to be inspected for safety features. The object should have a minimum height of 100 meters and at least one sheer face. There can be no protruding obstacles anywhere near the face or in the area directly below it.

The object also needs to have a landing area that is big enough to safely land a parachute and it needs to have an open area around it so the jumpers can approach the landing zone without protruding obstacles such as tress, lamp posts, traffic lights etc. Furthermore there should be an area for spectators that can be secured and separated from the landing zone and an area to place stands for sponsors, and vendors. An additional zone to mount further installments can be located nearby.
