I would have fallen off at 0:11.
At least you tried.
I would have got off at 0:10 and caught the bus.
thats gnar. didn't shit my pants but it damn near touched cloth.
That is fucking cool as shit.
Now I'm on a GoPro spree. Check this one out. Action starts at 1:48
Is that him screaming at 0:11?
Thats insane! Takes some courage to do that.
That's cool I wouldn't have made it at all.
That's pretty freaking awesome, but nothing has beaten this for me yet:
Know what's insane? He survived.
No, that was me.
That's fucking Badass!!! I had to watch his interview on Conan after that and read his Wiki.
He had 5 seconds after hitting that rock to decide, "do I want to die a quick painless death or risk pulling and die a very slow, painful death". Then he pulls literally at the last millisecond.
That chute wasn't even open for 1 second when he hit the ground. So he had to be going around 70+mph on impact. The guy should be a quadriplegic at best but is walking around fine now.
What's crazier, this guy Jeb was doing the same shit with his best friend Dwain Weston 9 years prior. Him and Weston tried to clear a bridge going 120mph. Jeb cleared the bridge fine. Weston impacted the bridge directly, was squashed like a fly and died immediately.
It really goes to show that most of these guys are just adrenaline junkies. My brother had a friend like that. Guy broke his neck surfing during a hurricane then healed up fine. 2 years later he's fishing on a boat with his friends. It's hot out, so he casually dives into the water to go swimming. Seconds later his corpse floats to the surface and he has no pulse. Turns out there was a rock in the water and his he broke his spine immediately on impact. If you watch Murderball, a lot of these guys don't die/get paralyzed playing their favorite extreme sport. It's usually happens in their spare time. When they're being their regular, stupid, behemoth selves.
