The first-ever BASE Jump from Mount Kilimanjaro is absolutely insane
Who said mountaineering wasn't exciting to watch?
Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro (the highest peak in Africa and the only mountain in the world to contain five different climate zones) is a serious and dangerous undertaking for the even the most experienced mountaineers. Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro only to BASE jump from the peak, however? Well, that's downright insane. Just ask Valery Rozov, who recently completed the first ever leap from "The Roof of Africa", ascending to 17,913 feet above sea level before beginning his one minute free-fall back to camp. If you're a fan of human accomplishment, this one is for you.
Despite the East Coast being pounded again and again with snow and cold this winter, it feels like summer over in California and the Signal Snowboards crew has got surfing on their minds. In this episode of Every Third Thursday, Dave Lee and the Signal Snowboards crew play around with surfboard stringers (the stringer is the thin strip of wood that runs down the middle of the surfboard to increase the strength and rigidity of the foam board).
Dave teams up with Appelcore Surfboard Stringers to create laminated veneers to use in the construction of two snowboards: one a traditional core snowboard and the other a totally experimental veneer laminate board at half the thickness of a normal snowboard. The crew bails on the beach for the mountains to test out these crossover boards. Does this surf technology make for a great snowboard?

"Only in Russia" is a phrase that can be applied to a lot of things, from crazy climbing stunts to off-roading gone wrong, but as far as pure stupidity goes, this one takes the cake. We can think of about 6 million better ways to test a bulletproof helmet—anything the doesn't require wearing it really—but then again, a little common sense would make the internet a far less entertaining place (just ask this guy).
The NBA All Star Weekend brand wars are in full swing in New York City. You have Yeezy versus Nike. Under Armour versus Adidas, and paychecks versus bills (if you're a sneaker lover that is). So it's the perfect time for Network A to drop a new episode of From The Feet Up!

We don't have much information about this one other than the fact that it's one of the sketchiest downhill bombs we've ever seen. Sure, Arbor has been doing some very cinematic stuff lately and pushing the envelope, but those are all on nicely paved roads—or at least roads without chunks of asphalt missing!
Whoever this downhill demon is in this video, before we even get to the pants-shitting terror at the 2:40-mark, he's already risking his life at those speeds with gravel all over the road and a very uneven pave job. Then, at that said 2:40-mark, a bus is coming around a corner right at him blindly. Somehow he's able to roll off into the grass and not underneath some tires.
