Those of you that like to jump off things are in for a treat – there is a new online magazine in town catering to BASE jumpers. The magazine is developed by a small team of dedicated enthusiasts, managed by British jumper Matt Gough.
Below is a press release from the creators of the Edge – but before we get to that one, please allow us to bring attention to a nifty little project they currently have going. Members of the BASE world – or anyone with a connection to it – are encouraged to donate their pocket change to the Edge BSBD donation fund. From that fund, Edge arranges for flowers to be sent to the families of those who have died in BASE accident, on behalf of the BASE community. With the past couple of weeks, the fund is pretty well running on empty.
To thank you for your donation, Edge has made their current issue available for free. When you go to claim it, you can essentially set your own price if you want to pay, and consider that your donation. Any payments received that way will go to that fund. More information and a link to go purchase that special edition can be found on the Edge Facebook page. Visit this post directly for the details.
And now on to the press release!
The Edge BASE Jump Magazine is currently an online publication, with aspirations to launch a physical magazine in the near future. When issues are purchased via the website or Facebook store, the reader is immediately emailed links to read the magazine in the form of interactive flipping book and/or pdf download copy.
Customers have the choice between buying individual issues, annual subscription or package deals which include a combination of subscription with items of Edge branded clothing. The first issue was released 1st March 2014 and subsequent publications are produced bi-monthly, with the second issue due for release in early May.
