To say that you have to be a certain type of crazy to partake in wingsuit flying is an understatement. All wingsuit flyers know for a fact that if they take this up as a hobby there’s a strong chance that they’ll die doing it and that means that the world gets to see some amazing edits from the world’s most extreme sport.
Not trying to put a dark spin on things but this really is one of the most dangerous sports in the world!
After watching more videos of wingsuits than is humanly possible we’ve compiled a quick list of the 9 most insane wingsuit flights ever and to make it even easier to digest, it’s in gif format as well… you’re welcome.
9. Scotty Bob
With a name as American as apple pie (we know apple pie isn’t really American but the saying still fits), Scotty Bob is a nutter.
8. Jeb Corliss – Tianman Cave
It’s Jeb Corliss he’s flying through a massive hole in a mountain. Not as good as Alexander Pollo though… (that’s a hint for later)
7. Jeb Corliss – Waterfall
It’s Corliss again and this time he flies through a waterfall. It’s not a massive waterfall but it’s still insanely dangerous.
6. Jeb Corliss – Chinese Dagger
Just to make everyone aware, there are no knives in this clip. I’m pretty sure that Jeb himself wasn’t carrying a knife.
5. Dream Lines 4
Further stamping the fact that these guys are fucking awesome at what they do.
4. Jeb Corliss- Balloons
Like it was someone’s birthday and he hated them, Corliss tries to ruin the party.
3. Ludovic Woerth & Jokke Sommer – Urban Wingsuit in Rio de Janeiro
Easily one of the most dangerous wingsuit flights you’ll see and they had to do it at 5.45 in the morning to not disrupt air traffic!
2. Alexander Pollo
Not many people would have the stones to do this. It really is impressive.
1. Crazy close in Norway
Well this could’ve gone really wrong, couldn’t it?
These guys are crazy but they’re always pushing the boundaries of their sport so take some inspiration from them! Never limit yourself!
