So it’s possible for a human, on foot, to do a loop the loop. We’ve seen it done on a skateboard and BMX – both are pretty mean feats – but without any mechanical assistance? Wow.
Main thing is of course, this loop the loop is pretty small compared to the ones attempted on other contraptions, but still I don’t reckon you could do it if you were presented with a same sized loop, even if you’d had a few beers.
Damien Walters is a British former elite gymnast freerunner from Derbyshire whose free running stunts have made him an online sensation. Damien’s also performed moves as a professional stuntman in Hellboy II: The Golden Army, Scott Pilgrim VS the World and Captain America: The First Avenger and in Kick-Ass he was credited as both stunt double and assistant fight coordinater
Mainly this video is of Damien trying to do the loop, but falling onto a crash mat or stopping short. After all, it’s pretty difficult. but then at 2:28 he pretty much nails it. If we’re being picky his exit could use a little fine tuning, but it’s a human loop the loop! I mean, WTF?
