Luke Hively

Luke Hively made his first 86 skydives in 1983 in his mother’s womb and grew up on an airport as the child of two accomplished skydivers. His parents were his heroes, because “… they could fly”, and it was only a matter of time before he would follow in their footsteps. He started skydiving in 1999, at age 15, and began BASE jumping in 2004. With over 3,000 jumps and 18 years in the sport, he has competed in several Freefly and Relative Work categories at the United States Parachute Association National Championships, earned a silver medal (Freefly) at the U.S. National Championships, two gold medals (Freefly), and five largest formation records (Freefly & RW). Although he notes his most memorable experiences were the hundreds of competition and big-way RW jumps he has made with his father.  As a long time partner with Apex BASE, Luke leads various BASE jumping expeditions each year, he is a Freefly Organizer & Coach, Skydive University Coach, USPA Coach, and Canopy Coach. Vehemently seeking “new experiences” and adventure with his best friends, Luke believes “sincerity and passion” are what lead to happiness. When he’s not flying, his day-to-day activities include mountain biking & rock climbing.
