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.
THE BEST Parachuting
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
