I Skydive but not BASE jump or use a wing suit. The reason I do not base jump is that there is only one parachute, and nano seconds to fix a problem.

Wing suit look like fun, however there are many malfunctions associated with the suit, like not being able to reach the main chute. Or the worst problem (which is what killed the inventor of the wing suit) sewing both the main and reserve parachute to the container, thus preventing any chance of sucessfully opening either parachutes.

Cheers!
