If you’re not familiar with the sport of BASE jumping, it’s basically just skydiving to the extreme. Standing for Building, Antenna, Span (bridges), and Earth (cliffs), the daredevil sport’s practitioners have become infamous for their death-defying stunts.
In the video below, BASE enthusiast John Van Horne used a helmet-mounted GoPro to take us on a first-person ride as he jumped into a 34-story tall skyscraper’s rooftop pool in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. To jump and drop as long as he did, and still wind up 1200 feet off the ground is exhilarating just to watch, so we can only imagine what it’s like to do it firsthand.
To call the stunt dangerous would be a massive understatement, and we can’t help but be in awe of the tremendous skill John demonstrates to land in such a small target jumping from one high altitude spot to another. Watch the insane video for yourself below.
