There aren't many occasions where a kite and a parachute are interchangeable. But Marek Zach decided to change all that...

The 34-year-old kite surfing champion decided it would be a good idea to jump off a 900m cliff, using only an inflatable kite to break his fall.

The drop - which is higher than the world's tallest building - is situated off a mountain in Turkey. Zach is claiming it's a new world record. Whether or not the folks over at Guinness World Records agree is another matter...
