[Fancy word for “sliding down on your ass,” (though you can also do it on your feet).](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glissade_(climbing) It can be a more dangerous way to descend, but it’s usually much quicker, much easier, and a lot more fun.
I can’t wait until friday to ask my noob question or I’ll forget, so here goes… How does one rate a problem?
You can make BASE terminal if you want. Just find a high enough exit point. As a skydiver you should also know that more often than not, a fuck up isn’t going to leave you just paralyzed. If it’s more than just a broken

Yeah it’s a cool shot, but accompanied by a typically overblown reddit title. I used to do this for a job when I left school, and in fact used to to do powerline clearance, which is how I know the line beneath the picture
That’s not a wing. It’s clearly a soft sail. You can see its natural curve just above the boom, and you can see it fed into the mast. Edit; Lots of downvotes for posting facts; Have a look at this picture then, and try
upboat for using ingenious human counterweight system to put less horizontal load on delicate rock formation

Yes you’re correct about telephoto lenses compressing distance, but the helicopter is behind the biker compared to us. So you can get an estimate of the distance between the two by comparing thier scale. So putting the clues together, id say he has plenty
It’s pretty easy to make these shots- its a lot easier if you have the camera stationary when you’re bursting. I’ve found in photoshop, once you have the background image, just select roughly around just the parts of the image that are moving, reverse
Yeah of course, especially for the offpist. Was just mentioning it because it was so obvious to see that the fellas in the movie didn’t use any helmets. It actually annoys me that professional marketing ads don’t use proper protection and therefor inspires others
I just want to point out that on Rampage riders are usually using full on downhill bike with 190-230 mm of travel. Kiril here is using a slopestyle bike with 125 mm of travel and 130 mm travel fork, which is nowhere as comfortable
Whitewater is incredible! Lots of pillows, steeps, trees – and surprisingly good food at the lodge.
The problem with this picture is that digital cameras don’t have the same dynamic range as the human eye, so to make it look more natural you have to bring it into photoshop and use the HDR filter, **[like this](http://i.imgur.com/o7LDPmy.png)**.
I called a place that sells holds because I was going to do something like this in an enclosed stairwell. The guy on the other end of the phone wouldn’t sell me holds, and made a really convincing argument why this is always a
I think most skydivers just don’t have an interest in wingsuit flying but if offered to try this they’d do it. Flying a wingsuit is just extra cost and extra risk. I’m sure this doesn’t apply to everyone but a lot of people don’t
I day blaze *some* objects and post videos online of some of those as well. The majority I don’t post. I take precautions about what, where, and when I post. I know people who post the hell out of their jumping on their personal
I did it as a gap year, and it worked out to be about the same cost and credits as two semesters of school. That said, the types of credits they give you aren’t really going to put you in the direction of a
Yeah, because I’m sure she sent this picture *as* she was skydiving. /s You do know that pictures can be saved, right? And those saved pictures can be retrieved at any time, to be sent in response to the conversation at hand, which may
i don’t think he made it though. i can’t find anything that shows him going higher than the photo OP offered.
We did something pretty similar in Rayleigh Thailand, it was called deep water solo and the equivalent of something like $50 AUD per person per day. They take you out to places like this to climb, feed you lunch, then you climb some more
Yeah. It can be pretty chilly up there, even in Arizona. I’ve seen people jump in all kinds of attire. I prefer shirts & t-shirt, but I jumped in one of the hottest places in the US
Your city likely has either a kite dealer where you can make a purchase, if not you can order online. OP looks to be using an Ozone Access (great choice!) If you’d like to learn more about this kite, you can check out www.flyozone.com.
Is he seriously flagging there or is his lower half resting on the boulder? Can’t tell but I’m still impressed!
