السلام عليكم
I'd like to find out the ruling regarding sky diving. Is it considered haraam. ?

Also, are you allowed to brush your teeth whilst fasting, as you do not swallow the toothpaste.

Skydiving will be permissible provide that the following four condition be met:
1) Whilst carrying out the skydive none of the Laws of Shariah should be violated viz. Laws of Hijaab should be maintained, there should be no intermingling of the sexes, the Satar should be covered, Salaah should be performed on time etc.
2) It should be done with the correct intention e.g. This may be useful for Islam and the Muslims at some stage
3) All safety precautions should be observed
4) It should not be done merely as a sport
If any of these conditions are not met, then it will not be permissible to skydive

As for brushing the teeth whilst fasting:
One should avoid using a toothbrush and toothpaste whilst fasting and rather use a miswaak. However, if toothpaste was used and was not swallowed then the fast will be valid.
