    Yes it's very enjoyable to watch and the views are amazing.

    Does anybody now what speed he's traveling at? Because he seems to be going quite fast!

    Wonder if he could modify the "flying suit" for longer flight vs. faster flight. Also wonder why he bothered with the helmet.

    Well terminal velocity ... he is prob going no more than the 150.. but fuck me i thought he was gonna mince off the ground at one stage.

    The dudes either insane or just had it timed to perfection.

    Camera + if he clips the tree branches he could lose an eye or get badly hurt, but wont die. With the helmet, he is fully protected.

    Both. People like that I truly believe are somewhat insane. So many people like him end up dieing eventually doing what they love, but to them, they wouldn't consider it living if they didn't do these kind of things. They need to feel the rush.

    bizarre synchronicity, just spent the last few days watching his vids and finding out how I can have a go, apparently you need at least 200 skydives before being accepted for base jump training (I thought I could just buy a suit online and jump off something very high) seems you need to know how to land as well. Shame. :(

    That's some fly shit (no pun intended).

    As for the video title though, "Grinding the Crack", really a poor choice.

    the crack is the name of that moutain he flew down. where the guy with the baloons is stood. He almost scraped the floor, hence the name grinding the crack :)
