Record-setting stunt pilot Spencer Suderman takes us along for a crazy series of twists, turns, and barrel rolls, over Southern California. We can’t decide if the GoPro’s gimbal setup made us more or less dizzy than a stationary camera.
THE BEST Stunts
Bicyclists Tyler Bereman and Darryn Durham take a ride on the undulating Red Bull Straight Rhythm course in the darkness of night. We’re gonna guess that the illuminated smoke trails and starfield were enhanced in post-production, but they still look cool.
Drivers Justin Oquendo, Ryan Kibbe, and Ken Block take on Chris Forsberg, Dustin Jones, and Ballistic BJ Baldwin, kicking up dirt for days in the widebody Can-AM Maverick X3 ATV, with its crazy 24″ of suspension travel, 15″ of ground clearance, and speedy 154hp turbo 4 engine.
In 1974, daredevil Evel Knievel infamously failed to jump the Snake River Canyon on a rocket bike. Now, stuntman Eddie Braun has pulled off the stunt, launching 2000ft into the sky off a 10-story ramp, at over 400mph. We’re hoping for some GoPro footage, but so far nothing.
Freestyle BMX phenom Mark Webb pulls off one insane trick after another in this badass film by Jordan Bareham. Bikes are quite lightweight these days, but Webb’s violent flips must still take a lot of strength and balls. The track is Glitch Mob’s Seven Nation Army remix.
(PG-13: Language) There are few greater pains than stepping on a LEGO block without shoes on. So to voluntarily run barefoot on top of a seemingly endless flow of the pointy plastic bricks seems completely masochistic. Then again, this video is from the guys who did this.
BASE jumpers are always looking for new places to jump from, but in the case of Chris Douggs McDougall and Jimmy Poucher, they took to the air via a giant catapult, which exerted more than 6Gs on their bodies as they were flung sky high at speeds up to 125 mph.
The world’s hottest daredevil, Roberta Mancino, recently took a helicopter ride over Chile’s active Villarrica volcano, and proceeded to jump out wearing her wingsuit. Props to Sebastian Alvarez, who went along for the ride, along with photographer Carlos Pedro Briceño.
