This guy has been doing his thing also for a number of years. What an amazing hobby!

I know it might seem unfair for wealthy folks to have outrageous pursuits, but nobody can fault these guys for flying with their own wings.

So rad. I wish I had the money(and bollocks) to do it.

I looked this guy up and got some info on how the suit works. He said that it's like doing a flying squirrel act where you're still falling but the suit is providing lift to give you distance traveled per distance dropped. An example would be that he travels about 3ft on distance for every 1ft of drop.

I've seen these suits used in free fall from a plane but never down a cliff face going through obstacles like he does - just crazy!

That was wicked, especially the part when the one camera guy holding the balloons has to dive out of the way.

How come you get to say damn?

I got censored for referring to our friend Guy Fairy as a douche bag - which
he, unquestionably, is.
