Join professional BASE jumper, Quentin Luçon, as he hitches a ride in a Corvette, jumps out, and swan dives off of a freaking bridge. Needless to say, this is highly illegal and you shouldn't try it at home, but Quentin wins our weekly Vin Diesel Award nonetheless.
On November 15, 2015, Frenchman Théo Sanson walked a slackline stretching from Utah's Rectory rock tower to its Castleton counterpart...over 1,600 feet away. And although no world records have been confirmed (yet), all it takes is one woozy, vertigo-inducing viewing to realize this one of the craziest tightrope stunts ever. If you're afraid of heights, now is your last chance to look away...
If you thought Jetman's epic flights were with the world's first jetpack, then you're probably with us in the collective "Huh?" when seeing this video of JetPack Aviation's first flight claiming it as the "world's first true jetpack." We're guessing because the Jetman contraption has wings, that the JetPack Aviation people are claiming that's some sort of motorized glider instead of a true jetpack. It's a bit splitting hairs, but hey, whatever.
Anyways, check out JetPack Aviation's first flight in New York City and around the Statue of Liberty—what better place to exhibit your invention's awesomeness?!
With news of Alain Robert's third Ariane Tower climb breaking this week, we decided there was no better time to face our fears and assemble the 5 craziest urban free climbs of all time in one head-spinning, stomach-turning countdown. From the second tallest tower in the world to the apex of the Wembley Arch, there is plenty of no-margin-for-error insanity on display here, so put on those climbing shoes and join us as we head for the clouds.
It's one thing to be crazy. It's altogether another to be and crazy and smart. This dude, however, is out to prove he's exactly that, solving a Rubik's Cube while in a skydive freefall in this crazy POV video. As anyone who has ever skydived before will tell you, it's hard enough to breathe, let alone think, so make sure to give this guy a good ol' fashioned golf clap before moving onto to other virtual pastures.
Just another Labor Day weekend in 'Bama. Note the impeccable form on the nose plug. Roll tide.
Want to see something awesome? Then watch as the Devin Super Tramp crew teams up with Contiki Legends for a crazy cliff jumping edit along Italy's Amalfi Coast. We aren't even going to bother telling you not to try this on your next Euro trip, but whatever you do, do it smart. Needless to say, nothing ruins a vacation like coming home in a body bag.
Earlier this summer we brought you a Memorial Day edit from Cliff Life, and over July 4th weekend, the New England cliff-jump crew were back at it again, this time taking to Vermont's heaviest quarries and cliffs for another awesome showcase. The footage certainly doesn't disappoint, so check it out and then go send some of your own.
In 2012, 138 skydivers, leaping from multiple planes, took to the skies to break the world record for the largest vertical formation skydive in history. Not the breed to sit still and polish their trophies, however, the world skydive community put their admittedly insane heads together to come up with something that would top that feat, eventually settling on one simple solution: Add more bodies. 26 of them to be exact. Sure, the glory would have to be spread even thinner, but the results, as you'll see, are more than worth the sacrifice.
