Here's a Guy Surfing a Thunderstorm

Sean MacCormac is just like you and me. He puts his (probably very expensive custom sportswear) pants on one leg at a time, then straps a snowboard to his feet, cinches a parachute to his back, and leaps headlong out of a plane and directly into a thunderstorm above Florida.



What’s so special about surfing on invisible air currents, plummeting towards the Earth at near terminal velocity against a backdrop of ominous clouds and lightning strikes besides absolutely every part of that experience?

You’re killing me Sean.

Wait, what happens if you’re struck by lightning mid air? Does it hit you and then exit your foot/lowest-appendage and continue on to the ground?
