Wing Suits...UNBELIEVABLE


wingsuit base jumping from Ali on Vimeo.


Crazy...

I saw a portion of this video a while ago when someone posted it on Facebook.  While I consider myself a pretty adventurous guy...I'm not sure I could do this.  I guess I better start with regular old sky-diving...

My favorite part:
"At the beginning of wing suit base-jumping, we were trying to get as far from the wall as possible...and now it's getting boring so we 'play around.'"

PLAY AROUND!?!?  Are you kidding me?

If you don't have 3-4 minutes to watch the whole thing, be sure and check out 0:28, 2:03, 2:20, and 3:10.  Forget it...just watch the whole thing.

I want to see them do the flips on the skis, soar for a while with the wing-suits and then find a landing spot with the skis on.  Then I'd be impressed.

(Can someone explain why they wear helmets at all?)
