If you haven't read about Sibu BASE Jump 2009, you can click here to see some of the BASE jumping action held at Wisma Sanyan, Sibu on 31st of October.
As promised, I shared some of the photos on the BASE jumpers participated in this very first event of its kind held at Sibu town. The participants came from all around the world including Australia, Finland, Russia, United State of America and more.
I don't have detailed information about these jumpers as they were not properly introduced or should I say no introduction at all either by the organizing committee or the press. This is one of the thing that I hope the committee will improve next time.
Luckily I managed to approach few of the jumpers and talked a bit with them. From there I knew where are they actually from.
This one was from Finland! I am pretty sure about that as he was the first jumper I talked to and I asked him after I shot this photo. He is a cute guy.
This is a very nice guy from Florida USA. Not sure about his name, but he showed his friendliness by taking photos with the local who approached him and requested for the favor. He kept promoting "Sky Frogs" which was printed on his t-shirt. Maybe I should Google for it later.
The one wearing helmet and sun glass holding a blue parachute in the first photo of this post is from Russia. His name is Max! He is the one left a comment in my previous write up about Sibu BASE Jump 2009. Too bad I don't have his close up photo.
The one with all black t-shirt in the first pic is an Aussie. A very friendly guy who loves to interact with the people around him. Maybe you should tell me your name if you read this, friend? ;)
This following handsome guy should be from Ireland if I judge from his wearing, but I used to wear Man Utd t-shirt don't mean that I am a Red Devil player, do I?
Wolverine" look in the X-men movie! No detail explanation, that was just my feeling at that moment. He was friendly enough by lending his helmet to the kids when taking photos. I'll be extremely overjoyed and excited if I was the kid!
Neither I know where is the following jumper from but his helmet attracted my attention. His one is other from others. The helmet looks like a bit small for his head, it is white in color and with Malaysia national flag printed on it. However I am sure he is not a Malaysian! ;p
He was the first one jumped from the building bringing Sanyan's flag. I read from some press saying that the world record holder for the most BASE jump made at KL Tower BASE jump 2005 who is an Aussie participated in this event. Perhaps he is the one?
I am not sure really... just have a guess. But I think he got more than one parachutes and jumped more frequent than others because I saw a jumper wearing that unique helmet who made more than one jump (maybe 2) in very short interval.
the photo I love the most with the Australia jumper holding his video cam attached on his helmet recording the moment of another jumper who was preparing to make the jump!
