It’s fair to say that BASE jumping isn’t exactly for the faint hearted. Jumping off things and risking life and limb in the endless pursuit for adrenaline, it’s not for everyone is it? It’s not a common hobby. It’s not like, say, running. It’s not jogging. It’s not hiking. You’d argue that it’s a tad more dangerous than all of these gentile activities combined.
But some people, believe it or not, don’t think BASE jumping is dangerous enough. Some people think BASE jumping is a bit vanilla. Some people want to lay down on a thing you could seemingly go surfing on, and be fired into the sky at 200km/h thanks to a massive human catapult. Enter stage left: Chris “Douggs” McDougall and Jimmy Pouchert.
McDougall and Pouchert teamed up with Go Fast Energy and Skydive Dubai to make this absolutely insane project a reality. The daredevils were catapulted over 300ft into the sky, and took on over 6Gs during the rapid ascent upwards. Rather than pass out from fear or exhilaration, like we undoubtedly would, they keep their wits about them and are able to pull the cord on their chutes and float back down to earth. You need to watch this. It’s madness. Pure madness.
