Base jumping without a parachute at Dubai’s extreme sports expo

Dream Jumping is the latest extreme sport to participate in Dubai’s first extreme sports expo.

Known around the world as Base Jumping without a parachute, a Dream Jump involves jumpers leaping off of tall structures while connected to a patented system of dynamic ropes.

The end result is a free fall that allows a diver to safely experience the feeling of a base jump without having to deploy a canopy.

Dream Jump was founded in Poland and since 2009 more than 20,000 dream jumps have taken place across Norway, France and Greece.

Unlike bungee jumping which involves jumpers hopping up and down after each jump, the dream jump patented system provide jumpers with a longer free fall and with a landing very similar to that of a base jump without a parachute.

A team of Dream Jumpers will be providing visitors to Dubai’s SPEARO Extreme Sports Expo dream jump displays from a 60 metre crane.

Zarir Saifuddin, main organiser of the SPEARO Extreme Sports Expo said; “Dream Jumps have taken rope jumping to the next level in both safety and excitement. Now anybody can experience the thrill of base jumping.”

Agata Majerczak Founder of Dream Jump is confident that Dream Jumps will be just as popular in Dubai as they are in Europe.

Speaking about Dream Jump Agata Majerczak said: "The dream jump system allows divers to have a longer free fall distance than in a bungee jump and have full freedom of movement during a jump to experience different acrobatics while in free fall. Due to the patented breaking system divers land similar to as if a parachute had been deployed and do not experience recoil as in Bungee Jumping."
