Any base jump is dangerous, but when you add a wingsuit that allows you to skim across the side of a mountain or over outcroppings of rock you alter the game to near mythical levels. On first glance these guys seem like they have a death wish. The truth is though that these guys are at the top of their game and REALLY know what they are doing. Yeah accidents occur, but I think it’s worth it to finally realize what man has sought after for thousands of years. These guys are actually flying, like real human flight. You know that at least a part of you wants to try this.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m a realist. The Athelete in the video, Jokke Sommers, probably had 10+ years of training to create that experience. So from my standpoint I don’t see myself getting into this, but that doesn’t mean it can’t happen.
