I can't see myself getting into base, too fast and I think there is much more risk involved in my opinion. Oh and the openings look vicious! HAHA

Minus the 13,000FT exit, followed with a terminal velocity and speeds up to 190MPHS for roughly 60 seconds. Yeah, kinda like Skydiving.

Hahaha! Yeah, I wish I could afford the tunnel time. That shit really helps with your experience beyond belief. The problem is in Germany the tunnel time is 700 euro for one hour and that is without paying the instructor. I would rather spend that on something else and just take the extra time to learn.

Those kids were amazing in there!

Dude that's freaking cheep!
Here in the US, due to Skyfucking venture holding us by the nut sack and kicking us in the head....$20/min
My business buddies and I were within months of starting to build an tunnel here in NJ just overlooking the city.
Only catch...good luck finding venture capital when there are two...i shit you not...two tunnels sitting in a box in the POS Xanadu center.
Maybe in a few years we will get a nice 5m tunnel up and running in NJ.
total cost only $9 mill
Till then enjoy

Cool video, proximity base jumping is insane! The way they fly around next to cliff walls is astonishing. It makes me want to buy a wing suit and start that sport.

I had my fingers and toes on one for $400 but another dude got the money first!
SHIT!
I have another one on the way.....a friend has one but he can't jump it due to only owning very aggressive elliptical wings.
I may just have to low ball him to see if he will sell it to me.

Here is short version:
- was skydiving with goal of BASE
- met woman, gave up BASE dream for woman
- skydiving got boring with no more goal of BASE
- stopped
- woman now wife
- get my need for speed on my motorcycle

Man I miss jumping sometimes. The whole lifestyle just doesn't fit in well at this point though. It was great when I was single in college. I'd love to get a 4-way team and go to Nationals one day though.
