Jeb Corliss

A Wingsuit documentary about Jeb Corliss directed and produced by Iiro Seppänen

January 2012, Jeb Corliss, the world’s most recognized wingsuit pilot, miraculously survived a terminal velocity wingsuit accident at Table Mountain, South Africa. For the first time ever, you will get to hear what really happened and witness never-before-seen angles from this tragic accident.
Because of his accident, Jeb endured painful operations and physiotherapy in order to get to his next mission: to fly through a narrow crack in the Jianglang Mountains in China’s Zhejian Province, which is only 60 feet (18m) wide at the top and 15 feet (4.5m) at the bottom. “Flying Dagger” gives an up-close and personal insight into the career and achievements of Corliss in the lead up to this spectacular flight. This film is an inspiring story about redemption, a man’s journey to face his demons, to fulfill his dreams and strong determination to make them a reality.

Jeb Corliss – One of the world’s foremost and best known BASEjumper / Wingsuit pilots, Jeb Corliss has dedicated his life to “Human flight”. With over 1,200 jumps under his belt, he has hurled himself off of spectacular venues including from the top of the Eiffel Tower, The Golden Gate Bridge and The Petronas Towers in Malaysia, to name a few. Jeb Corliss is also a motivational speaker, Stunt Artist/Advisor (most recently on the set of the new Point Break film) as well as special appearances in film, television and live events (Including Super Bowl XXXVIII).

Two BASE Jumpers Throw Themselves Off 48th Floor In The Heart Of London

EpicTV Choice Cuts

We recently received an anonymous video from two London BASE jumpers who had just completed a pretty cloak and dagger stunt from a classy London rooftop bar. Their mission was to find an un-jumped exit within London city limits. Finding a tall building to BASE jump from wasn’t hard but finding one they could get access to… well, that was another story. Eventually they found a swanky rooftop bar near Canary Wharf which fit the bill perfectly. They did the proper reconnaissance, then they marched in and jumped out the window. Maybe not quite as peaceful and contemplative as opening a new exit in nature, but it makes for one helluva story.

Uli Emanuele

Wingsuit Flight Through 2 Meter Cave

Uli Emanuele
Uli Emanuele pilots what is possibly the most technical and difficult BASE jump ever. For the past 3 years Uli has been dreaming about and preparing for what could be a world record jump. With just his wingsuit and hiking poles, he climbs to his exit point and realizes there is no turning back.
The video opens with an enthusiastic Emanuele hiking up to a rugged mountain, situated in Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland. Pulling on his blue wing suit, the daredevil adjusts his goggles before taking time to check over his kit for one final time before the jump. With one big leap, Emanuele jumps off the edge of the mountain side and immediately the scale of his ambitious stunt becomes apparent as the small hole comes into site.
The wing suit immediately kicks into action and the spectacular views of the valley emerges.
Making a slight turn, the daredevil lines himself up for a near impossible flight through the cave and in a flash, he soars through the mini hole. Several different angles are shown of the daredevil making the fiendish stunt.
One slow motion sequence shot shows how close the daredevil came to crashing into the rock face.
Swooping over the lush green mountain side, the jubilant daredevil celebrates his remarkable stunt. Releasing his parachute, Emanuele lands safety in the grass, near an wooden hut. Despite the adrenaline filled achievement, the relaxed daredevil is even seen at the end taking time to talk to several alpacas.
Emanuele told Geeky Gadgets: ‘I found this hole three years ago. At that moment it was impossible to fly through.’
‘After three years of hard training I was ready for it. I opened two different exits. I flew through the hole four times. That is the smallest hole ever flown through by anyone.’
The remarkable stunt was successfully carried out in September 2014, with the footage only emerging recently on to social media. The video has already attracted nearly a quarter of a million views.

Mexico 4th of July

Base Girl
How do I like to celebrate the 4th of July? by leaving the country of course. Follow Me and my friend as we go on a BASE jumping adventure down to Mexico to jump off an incredibly deteriorated crane that was literally falling apart under our feet!

BASEgirl aka Clair Marie was born and raised in a small mountain town outside of South Lake Tahoe, California. The second eldest in a family of nine siblings she knows all about “getting your piece of the pie”. Clair, in a 2009 interview was explained as “a powerhouse in a pint sized package and mature beyond the years recorded on her drivers license”.
After 9 BASE jumps, she decided to take to the sky and completed her firs1230071_633345203366845_147781262_nt skydiving tandems, which in the normal scheme of things should have predated the BASE jumping. It wasn’t long before she became a full-time staff member at a California Dropzone packing parachutes for the tandem instructors. Acquiring the jump numbers and experience level she began filming tandem videos and loving each jump more than the last. At 19 years old, she decided to study to become an AFF instructor and earned her certification a few months later, adding the ability to teach students to her list of skills.
Clair is an incredibly accomplished BASE jumpers and one of the top female athletes in the sport! In addition she manages to balance her life as a professional BASE jumper and a successful career as a model and stunt woman, appearing in commercials, print advertisements and online media.
