California Bungee was founded in 1989 by Glenn Bruno.
Glenn was one of the first Americans to jump in the United States in 1988. Subsequently, he started California Bungee in June 1989. He has conducted jumps from bridges, cranes, hot air balloons, towers, trees and hangars. To date we have operated in ten States, Mexico and Europe. Glenn has supervised over 40,000 jumps, been a safety and technical consultant to commercial bungee jumping operations throughout the United States, and has assisted and consulted with State agencies in adopting regulations and safety guidelines. Additionally, he has worked with several public agencies to train their regulatory inspectors on the sport of bungee jumping.
California Bungee prides itself on being a highly committed safety-first organization with a perfect track record. Bungee jumping is a relative new sport and there are potential unknown risks. California Bungee has consulted many experts in the effort to minimize potential risks. As a result we have a system that employs a strict policy of redundancy that strives to ensure our jumpers’ safety. Each part of our system has a back up system and every aspect has been thoroughly tested, refined and re-tested.
California Bungee designs and manufactures bungee cords for unique applications too. In 2020 we were asked to assist in designing a launch system for the largest manufacturer of UAV’s. After testing several prototypes, we were awarded a prime government contract as the exclusive vendor for the U.S. Military and their allies. The Bermuda Biological Station for Research utilizes our cords for sediment traps in the ocean as does the University of Rhode Island and Louisiana State University’s department of Oceanography. We designed cords for Veolia Water’s waste treatment plant in New York. Mixed martial artists use our cords to increase their strength and speed too. And we supply the US Army special cords that are used on their zip lines at Ft. Leonard Wood in Missouri. Contact us directly to discuss your specific needs.
