video – BASE jumping

I’ve seen a number of BASE jumping (Building, Antenna, Span, and Earth videos lately. This one features gainer back somersault starts including one from handstand. Another guy starts with inward gainer.

If you have ever felt an urge to jump off the Eiffel tower, click on the video below. Or watch it on YouTube.

Needless to say, BASE jumping is one of the most dangerous of the acrobatic sports. Tony Coombes, 30, from Australia slammed into a cliff face after leaping from Trollveggen, also know as Troll Wall, in Norway. The 7th to die there.

Was he a foolish amateur? No, Coombes was a member of a team that won the 2004 world BASE jumping championships.
