A hammock is supposed to be the most relaxing thing that this world has to offer. It is the picture of carefree contentment. This giant hammock hung over a canyon though? Absolutely intense, the total opposite. People use the spacenet to base jump and slack line and other extreme things that’s so batshit fun and crazy…
The whole time I was watching this video of Marshall Miller base jumping into Lauterbrunnen in Switzerland, I was screaming inside. You see the entire jump from his perspective, as he looks down and around and can't see anything but fog and yet he still makes the jump. And as he's falling down, you still can't see…
I thought this wingsuit guy flying so close to the ground was going to crash multiple times. I held my breath and closed my eyes and stressed myself out anticipating the worse and still can't believe he pulled it off. He flies so close to the ground, zips right passed all the rocks and perfectly evades all the trees.
Hold tight. This new video shows Vince Reffet and Fred Fugen break a new World Record: by climbing to the very top of Burj Khalifa—the world's tallest building—and then BASE jumping off it.
Do you like modern architecture? What about stomach-churningly scary videos of people hurling themselves off tall things? Well, you're in luck: After four people were arrested for BASE jumping off of One World Trade last month, we took a look at other jumps from famous buildings.
NY1 news is saying that Daniel Vasquez, assistant security director at One World Trade Center, is resigning after two separate events where thrill-seekers were able to break in to the building.
Brace yourselves. This newly-uploaded video shows two people walking to the edge of the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere—One World Trade—and jumping off. And here we were, thinking that a 16-year-old was all that for sneaking past a guard or two.
He's Superman. Actually, I take it back. I don't even think Superman would fly this impossibly close to the ground because it's just ridiculous. Insane, really. That didn't stop wingsuit pilot Brian Drake from zipping mere feet from the ground though. Look at him tear through the gully and marvel at death being…
BASE jumps! If they go wrong, most of the times they are fatal. But not for Maria Steinmayr, who has miraculously survived a failed Extreme BASE jump from the top of the Gran Bali Hotel in Benidorm, Spain. Her parachute failed, making her crash against the building. Hard. Miraculously, she only got a few contusions.
Earlier this month, 48-year-old Russian BASE jumper Valery Rozov took a leap off of Mount Everest from an elevation of 23,687 feet, the highest ever BASE jump to date. Thank goodness other people are this crazy so that you don't have to be.
If there's one thing the popularity of GoPro cameras have given mankind, it's the ability to enjoy near-death experiences from a safe and comfortable remote vantage point. Like Erik Roner, who was kind enough to strap a couple of GoPros on as he drove a snowmobile off the edge of a cliff so we can all experience what…
Don't watch this video. No, seriously, it's really rough. The best thing is that Matthew Gough, the guy who plummets while base jumping, actually survived the fall with only minor injuries. He hit the ground at 40mph from a 1,000 foot cliff because his parachute malfunctioned. The footage is taken from his helmet cam.
I keep watching this video over and over and every time this insane guy in a wingsuit somehow manages to avoid smashing into the side of the mountain by perfectly zipping through a ridiculously narrow cave. It's unbelievable. It doesn't make sense. He's flying at 155 miles per hour!
This is pretty unbelievable. Richard Henriksen, a basejumper, fell off a steep rock cliff after his high bar collapsed yet he still somehow survived. Watch the video and wait until the very end, Henriksen and the whole setup both disappear and plunge to the ground.
Have you heard this one before? Four guys dressed in business suits walk into a fancy bar and order a Negroni cocktail... that might sound like a start of a bad joke but in reality it's the beginning of a ridiculously awesome stunt. After finishing their drinks, the daredevils skip out on their tab by jumping off the…
Singapore's Marina Bay Sands hotel is home to one of the most-photographed and internet beloved swimming pools on the planet. It's atop a massive tower, and looks seamless, like a levitating mirror. So why not leap off off of it?
Thank goodness there are so many certifiably insane people in this world. That way the rest of us don't have to strap a camera to our helmets, ride up dozens of stories on the outside of an elevator, and plummet to near-certain doom in the middle of a busy Spanish city on a busy afternoon. Like these guys did.
The maniacs at Melbourne Skydive Centre are still falling off things with style. I've only ever gone cliff-diving once, and it was nothing like this. This looks shades of terrifying and exhilarating that I can hardly imagine.
