August 3, 2006 – Diana Blackburn. Skydive #1331 for me was a freefly jump with Barefoot Dave Tirello and Wyat Drewes at Skydive Chicago’s Summerfest Boogie. Wyat filmed the jump and took pictures. This was before the GoPro camera existed. Wyat filmed this skydive with a Sony DCR-PC5 digital video camera with a wide angel fisheye lens.

Tailgate exits are always way fun! B-foot and I did a gainer exit out of the Casa Skyvan airplane at 14,000 ft. We flew head down, did sit flying and stand flying. B-foot always made skydives super fun with his infectious enthusiasm.


Watch me skydive over San Deigo, CA
Watch me go shark diving in Hawaii
Watch me river rafting on the Kern River
Watch me rappel down a waterfall in Utah
Watch me shoot tv with a shotgun
My name is Diana Blackburn (aka Daredevil Girl, aka Swoop Girl). This is my You Tube channel, Daredevil Girl. I’m a relatively new YouTuber. I grew up Mormon and realized at the age of 15 that it wasn’t for me. I’ve been very adventurous my entire life. In fact when I was a kid I wanted to be a stuntwoman. I’m pretty sure that ever since I was born (in 1977) I knew that I wanted to fly. I’ve had dreams of flying ever since I can remember remembering. This has led me to a living a life of no fear, going on adventures and loving anything sports and extreme!

I upload many different kinds of videos to my channel every week. Many of these videos are from over ten years ago from my travels and road trips with my late fiancé Wyat Drewes. We gathered footage for our WyDi Productions video company. Wyat swooped my heart. I loved him very much. I met Wyat in 2001 when I was a beginner skydiver. In 2003 we got engaged when he proposed to me at the bottom of a 1,700 ft waterfall on Maui. Wyat died in a motorcycle accident August 10, 2007 in San Diego, California. I miss him terribly every day. He was my best friend and a kindred spirit. I’m super grateful I filmed all of our adventurers together. Wyat lives on in my videos.

I only date women now. Sorry guys, I’m happily a lesbian enjoying life with my adorable girlfriend, Emily.

I have a variety of original content. Videos you will see on my channel are mostly of me on adventures and doing things such as skydiving, speed flying, ground launching, paragliding, shark diving, snorkeling, base jumping, swooping, canopy piloting, skateboarding, snowboarding, skiing, speed riding, parkour, free running, getting tattoos, cliff diving, jumping off roofs, jumping off piers, zorbing, jumping off waterfalls, Hawaii travel, boxing, fighting, arm wrestling, knife wielding, shooting guns (shotgun is my favorite), punching bag, MMA, working out, doing push ups, doing hand stands, swimming, rock climbing, bouldering, rappelling, fishing, whitewater river rafting, hiking, camping, landscaping, zip lining, stand up paddle boarding (SUP), slam dancing and partying. I love to jump out of airplanes, but I REALLY love to jump out of helicopters!

I post a lot of cute and funny cat and kitten videos as well as videos of dogs, raccoons and other animals. Sometimes I post funny cute babies and kids. I also post videos of cooking, baking tips and survival tips. I post videos of my musician friends playing drums, guitars and singing (when they let me). I agree with the Shaytards: “If life’s worth living then it’s worth recording!!!”
