    Yeah, I guess no one ever considers the amount of planning and analysis that would go into this. That being said I'm still surprised he could accurately steer himself to his target, unless there's a maximum amount of drift a person could have on a vertical fall.

    That video was definitely a fake. It was some kind of advertising thing.

    Long forgotten is Icelander Leif Igulffsen, who parasailed without a shoot at sea level, and they ended up calling it waterskiing.

    I can only imagine how much tail he got and will get for the immediate future.

    I'm a pro baller
    I'm a plastic surgeon
    I'm a millionaire
    I jumped out of a plane with no parachute.

    Crazybrave. That guy better not pay for a drink for the rest of his life.

    The guys flying around fjords in wingsuits come close to that level of awesome/stupid, I can't think of much else. Freedivers maybe.

    And when he jumps into all that tail, you just know he'll be doing it with
    no protection.
    Thats just how he rolls.

    Why did I think the craziest part of all this is that the guy is 42 years old?
