We have just returned from a beautiful trip to Acapulco, Mexico. Our friend Avery Badenhop organized a building event from La Palapa, which helped three people finish all four objects and become the first ones to complete B.A.S.E.. This means that they have jumped all four objects in the word BASE. BASE is an acronym that stands for Building, Antenna, Span, and Earth. In normal BASE jumping it is a true honor to get your BASE number. There are over 2000 people that have completed BASE. There is an association where you can apply for a BASE number by giving them a bit of information about your four qualifying objects. While there are over 2,000 people that have a personal BASE number, there are only 3 people at this time that have their Tandem BASE number. Each of these people have been part of history in BASE. They have each done Tandem BASE jumps from each of the four objects. This is a very exciting time and something that I have been excited for since I started doing Tandem BASE in 2009. I always wondered who it would be. Would it be a super rich dude? I figured it would because of the insane expenses that come along with doing exotic jumps in different locations. Tandem BASE #1 is Alexandra Badenhop along with her boyfriend Brian Crail #2.
Tandem BASE #3 is my girlfriend Brenton Black from Twin falls, ID. As the original Tandem BASE master I have decided that I will be the one keeping a database for all of the future issuing of Tandem BASE numbers. I will keep it similar to the traditional BASE number system in honor of our sports history. I am very excited to offer these special world adventures to those who want to mark their place in history and jump all four objects in the word BASE.
