    They're going pretty damn close to those mountains and if you hit one you'd be toast immediately.

    While watching the video I was thinking these guys must have had a lot of training but then, how can you train for this?

    I guess you just go for it and hope for the best, I don't know, it looks fun but I don't think I'd jump off a mountain.

    It's funny that even though it's completely out of anyones control if you die, it's technically suicide only legal.

    How boring must your life be if this is the only thing getting your rocks off? Just my opinion.

    Why do you say that? There's lots of extreme sports out there.

    I do this every weekend :



    Watch from 2:25 for some adrenaline rush :)

    We go down the mountains/hills with 80 km/hour on a bike.If you fall trust me you are close to death but that won't stop me for doing it :).Same goes for those guys too.Not that his life is boring but if you have a great passion in your life death/money or other shits won't stop you.

    Pass, I mean cool but way too extreme. As to learning how, you start first with gliding and work from there learning how to move while reading the winds and terrain.

    you need to have minimum 500 jumps from a plane as a skydiver before anybody will even consider taking you to do base jumping. Then, after you do some base jumping and skydiving with a wingsuit, you can go ahead an do base jumping with a wingsuit.

    These videos are great when you wake up in the morning and feel low on energy :) it is really risky though if wind blows in one direction unexpectedly, then you might end up clipping the rocky edges.

    The camera work is great too I guess they are using GoPro cameras to record these stunts.

    TFS!
