Awesome Parachuting

Jumping Over a Peninsula

Jumping Over a Peninsula

Check out this insane video of kitesurfer Reno Romeu as he takes to the air along the coast of Arubinha, Brazil, and manages to fly up, over, and stick the landing on the other side of the peninsula. We’re just glad he didn’t land on the vacationers on the beach below his board.

BASE Jumping Jet Men

We watched in amazement as BASE jumpers Espen Fadnes and Andreas Haaland Hemli jumped off of a mountain in Norway in the dark of night, then lit up their flight path with brilliant flares attached to their feet. We thought we were watching a missile launch.

Speedriding Through an Alpine Resort

Speedriding Through an Alpine Resort

Pro speedrider Valentin Delluc takes us on a wild flight over and through an empty Alpine ski resort. Watch as he paraglides in from the sky, grinds some ski lift cables, and catches insane air off of ski jumps and buildings at Avoriaz 1800.

Taking a Risk

Taking a Risk

From para-skiing to cliff-diving to rooftop parkour runs, there are lots of ways for athletes to get their thrills. Storyful compiled this 15-minute video featuring a dozen daredevil activities from the awe-inspiring to the downright foolhardy. Unless you count dizziness, the jumbo hula hoop at the end is clearly the tamest.

Burj Khalifa Night BASE Jump

Burj Khalifa Night BASE Jump

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. Their jump started an insane 1,921 feet off the ground, and took them between the Address Sky View’s towers.

New Zealand Speedflying

New Zealand Speedflying

Skydiving expert Angus Sellen takes us on a death-defying flight through some incredibly rocky ravines of Shark’s Tooth Mountain in New Zealand. The fisheye perspective of his GoPro MAX camera captured a truly immersive visual that’ll have you holding on for dear life.

Speedflying in Dreamland

Speedflying in Dreamland

A trio of pilots known as the Romaniacs fly through mountains, canyons, and forests in this thrilling and immersive speedflying video captured from the perspective of their helmet cams. Play it on the biggest screen you can find for maximum effect.

Moonline

Moonline

We can only imagine how amazing it is to paraski down the slopes in Chamonix. But Red Bull Speed Rider Valentin Delluc did that one better, by gliding over the powder in the darkness of night, illuminated by LED lights under his wing, and the full moon above.

What To Do If Your Parachute Fails

What To Do If Your Parachute Fails

If you jump out of a plane and your parachute refuses to open at 12,500 feet, chances are, you’re screwed. But Gregory Austin McConnell is here to give you every possible advantage, even if it only amounts to a 0.01% chance of survival. Maybe you’ll even meet Al Roker.

Massive Paratrooper Jump

Massive Paratrooper Jump

Awe-inspiring video of dozens of members of the U.S. military’s 82nd and 101st Airborne Divisions, all packed into C-17 Globemaster III aircraft, then doing a static line jump over a test drop zone at Fort Bragg, NC. It’s mindblowing that nobody’s chutes got tangled doing this.

Gaming at 10,000 Feet

Gaming at 10,000 Feet

To promote its SHIELD gaming system, NVIDIA dropped professional skydiver Jeff Provenzano from a C-130 Hercules transporter while playing games in his living room. They want us to question whether it’s real or fake, but we’re thinking it’s real, given Jeff’s credentials.

Lifted

Lifted

(NSFW: Language) Rockstar drink and Nitro Circus’ Erik Roner used 90 balloons, 50 helium tanks and a lawn chair to create a poor man’s version of the Up house. Erik went up to 8,000ft. before parachuting back down.

Beat Down

Beat Down

(NSFW) Two bikers get in a no-holds-barred race down the hills of Moab, Utah. No rules, no roads, no fear. A hell of a stunt film from Camp 4 Collective.  The song is Behind the Crooked Cross by Slayer.

Parajet Zenith Flyer

Parajet Zenith Flyer

In Man of Steel, you’ll believe a man can fly. But for those of us without the powers of Krypton in our blood, these fan-powered one-man flyers are the next best thing, reaching heights up to 10,000ft and speeds up to 45mph.
