Our friend Sean Chuma breaks down the TARD-OVER, for experienced BASE jumpers

How to Tard-Over

This video builds on the first part, “How to TARD


  • Wind conditions MUST be no wind or slight headwind
  • Tailwind = BAD!
  • Don’t get wrapped up
  • Not the best heading performance, so keep this to bridges

Key points

  • Prepare canopy for a TARD as in video 1, How to Tard
  • Don’t get canopy snagged on the bolts
  • Pinch the tail and put the canopy over the rail first
  • Climb over with right leg first and turn to the right (mirror if left handed)
  • Hold on with your left hand the whole time
  • Hold canopy down and a little in front
  • Sort that stance – keep shoulders square
  • Find focal point about 45 degrees down
  • Dive over the canopy towards that focal point
  • Push hard
  • When feet past vertical let go of the canopy
  • Pull hands out to the sides
  • Get training in person

Get your TARD on!
