Default Holy balls - wingsuit BASE jumping

These dudes are within arms reach of a mountain while flying with a wingsuit. Absolutely insane.

fairly safe if you've had enough experience I can imagine. The suits are designed for a specific rate of descent and forward velocity. Much like motocross jumps are engineered for a certain speed and certain weight to achieve a specified height and landing distance every time.

I just would hate to hit a tree you didn't expect to see :)

I'd do it in a heart beat....the guy has a parachute on 'just in case'....

Imagine the rush - I can't wait to finally go skydiving someday (hopefully soon)
