GoPro Bomb Squad Skydiving

Daredevils dangle from the skids of a helicopter and soar above the Alps with only a wingsuit for protection. The GoPro Bomb Squad have spent the last five years travelling the world to showcase their talents in disciplines as diverse as paragliding, speed flying, wingsuit cloud surfing, base jumping, and skydiving. The four friends formed the Bomb Squad in 2008 after approaching action camera maker GoPro in the hope of turning their extreme sports holidays into a full-time career.

The GoPro BombSquad: Neil Amonson, Marshall Miller, Jesse Hall, and Jt Holmes.

Dam Base Jumping!

AERIAL CHRONICLES OF A VENETIAN, EP. 3

Oh you ragamuffin daredevils, always jumping off damn dams! Vladimir Spigler and his buddies have no qualms about BASE jumping off anything and everything — in this video they’re leaping off mountains in Lauterbrunnen, Canton of Bern and Canton of Wallis. Vladimir and his Italian crew then move to the Western part of the Swiss Alps to discover some new undisclosed jumps, like a huge 250m concrete wall dam and a sweet jump next to a fairy waterfall… The journey was made difficult by unlucky weather – wind rain and low clouds but patience and respect for nature is a must when trying to be successful in the unknown mountain environment… Athletes: Vladimir Spigler, Alexander Edbom, Peter Salzmann, Olivier Chacornac, Kristoffer Andersen,Twin Pask Dam BASE Jumping! | Aerial Chronicles of a Venetian, Ep. 3
