I used to jump quite a bit when I was in my twenties and early thirties but this is taking that to a way new level. So would love to try this just do not think they make fly suites my size 😄

Been following Jeb and some of the other guys for a couple of years now. This is the 2013 edit.

That guy is Jeb Corliss and he did the jump in Cape Town in January 2012 from Table Mountain.

This is taken from a base jumping forum where he was asked WTF was he doing. This was his reply


Well the answer is very simple. I was flying too close and messed up 🙂 I was going for a black balloon that was basically laying on the rocks and was going to try and kick it with my foot. In order to do this I had to fly low and flat between boulders. My left foot clipped a boulder that dragged me into a flat ledge that I took at the waist at full speed. If I had not clipped that boulder I might have made it, I might have still impacted. It's very hard to tell from the footage. Everything happens very fast. But when you go for a flight where inches are the difference between making it and not making it, well impact is very possible. I knew this and took the risk and paid the price for pushing way too hard. I take full responsibility for my actions and am just happy I still have legs to do rehab on.

This is not my first time getting hurt and it will not be my last. I push it, always have and always will. One day I will die and I just hope that when I do, it will be doing something I truly love...

Jeb

P.S. I want to thank everyone for their support. 99% of you have been very very nice to me 🙂 For the other 1% I agree with you 100%, I am a total dumb ass 🙂 I am human and humans make mistakes. I am sorry for what ever inconvenience I have caused anyone...
