BASE jumping takes serious balls, and the shorter the jump, the bigger they need to be. BIT – BASE inspired travels performed this impressive 60-meter (196-foot) jump from inside of a cathedral somewhere in France. The crazy thing is that this daredevil has done jumps from less than half that height.
Awesome Base Jumping
The guys from BIT – BASE Inspired Travels climbed to the top of this abandoned wind turbine so they could jump off of it. The unusual Ferris wheel design of the windmill is just as interesting to look at as the brief 50-meter dive into the fog. We’d love to see footage of the climb, though.
To celebrate the launch of the Sony PS5, XDubai athletes Matt Munting and Nicholas Scalabrino performed a spectacular nighttime jump off of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, currently the world’s tallest building.

Devin “Supertramp” Graham assembled a group of daredevils, who donned parachutes, then slid down a soap-covered Slip ‘N Slide off of a 500 foot cliff for this epic stunt. The Subaru product placement is a bit in your face, but Devin’s gotta pay the bills too. BTS vid here.
