Taking on a skydive is pretty gnarly. Paragliding? Pretty hard-core too.
But what if you combine the two with some infinity tumbles to create one of the most epic high altitude manoeuvres we have ever seen? A human slingshot whilst spiraling 5000m in the air!
The trick took a year to perfect and you can see early in the video just how one tiny misjudgement of timing could have spelt absolute (and a rather messy) disaster.
Determinedly Horacio Llorens and Hernan Pitocco kept pushing anyway – you have to see to believe the balls of steel on these guys. Seriously hard-core.
